I found the most wonderful book today. It's the first part of a full edition of all Schiller's Works. There are some amazing illustrations that I've found in it and probably a lot more that I haven't discovered yet. The lettering is amazing as well. The capitals at the beginning of each work or chapter I copied, because it was so fascinating..:)
Apologies for the pencil remnants by the way, that's me being godawfully lazy ;)

Cafe Scribbles

Sitting alone in a cafe is surprisingly meditative and cool :)
xoxo Alex


I'm quite enjoying these exercises. Starting off with a copy is a great thing to get into the flow, and then working out a new, original pose is tedious but essential to make progress I think :) It's fun! :)
Oh and original drawing & pose still by Wilhelm M. Busch :)
Good night, y'all! :)

Doctor from Heidi

My grandma gave me a real treasure the other day. It is a really old copy of 'Heidi' (a German-or Austrian? children's story) with incredible illustrations by Wilhelm M. Busch. I'm sure I'll keep studying his work, here is a first sketch of this doctor he did :)
Good night!

Halloween Party

Sooo-this piece is making progess ;) If it weren't for all those lovely people supporting me ( :D ) I would have declared it as finished ages ago-we'll see how far I'm going to go on this one :O
So anyway, there are a few figures you haven't seen yet, that I'll probably save for some busy days :)

Cat Pics

As a matter of fact I can tell you exactly why maintaining daily posts on this blog has been so difficult. The lack of routine in my life right now makes it difficult for me to keep up with drawing. I managed to finish school and never miss a day before exams and whatever-no problem. There I had a plan. I had a routine. At the moment I'm improvising, doing what need to be done, when it needs to be done. All I can say is-I'm so sorry. When this whole chapter of my life has been resolved and I'm well settled into a new routine this will change again but until then, please bear with you. Meanwhile here's an all time favorite of yours ;)

I love this picture :D She is so attentive and awesome! <3

Girl Power

Heyho :D So this took a long time :) and my cat sat on it, so now it is wrinkly but still it was important for me to finish this piece :) It isn't my favorite, but I still like it :)
I feel like the middle ones hair doesn't come out properly, maybe I'll go over it again :)

Stern Black Dude

I like him somehow :D
I though about adding some kid who is being stern at (can you actually say that? :O :D) but then I didn't I didn't want to ruin it...XD
xoxo Alex


Yes, I know-I missed yesterday :) But I have a good excuse! :D I have a picture as proof ;)

I'm not sure whether I am going to do the whole armor like this though. Only this small part took like 45min!
Anyway, this will probably occupy me for the rest of the night, so see ya ;)
