    I listen to soooo many different Music genres so expect this list to seem a bit random: Smash Into Pieces: - Let me be your Superhero - In Need of Medicine - In Love with Love And basicly any other of their Songs. Apparat: - Goodbye (sry, this is a kinda moody one - but at the Moment I LOVE listening to it) Julie Fowlis: - Into the Open Air - Touch the Sky The whole Soundtrack of "Brave" is great but these two are soooo uplifting and tell a great Story Sparklehores: - Piano Fire Yatao: - Prag Yatao is great for Relaxin - just don't expect anything exciting Parov Stelar & Caravan Palace: - Booty Swing - Wonderland - Lone Digger These two Producers possibly make some of the most fun Music ever - so if you are into electro swing what are you waiting for? Adrian von Ziegler, BrunuhVille & Vindsvept The three masters of Celtic Music For those of you not having Problems with gamemusic:

    @Lea I love poems. Have written some myself (not the best thought ^^) - where can I find some of yours - I'd love to read some of them. I like to capture people in motion. To the annoyance of some of my training partners - I like drawing their gesture ^^
  3. Hey, If you're unsure about deleting your login-data but also feel better if you don't have them around, maybe give them to a family-member or someone you trust (a best friend) and ask them to keep them for you but only give them back if you're completely sure that you want them back.

    My Drawing Journal

    Hmmm I'm already online, so I guess I can write a small update as well…. I finished the drawing after letting it rest a few days --> see end of post. University is going great as well, even though we lost one of our project team members to an evil professor, work is going on quite good. This week exams start. This is the first time that even though I have to learn for exams I'm able to keep up training and drawing while also learning in time 💪 Yesterday I modeled for a photoshoot - was quite awesome and I'm hyped for tomorrow when I'll get the pics 😄 Last but not least - here's the drawing - I know that there's a lot wrong with the face, but in comparison to all my previous work I think that's a masterpiece

    Just a quick update, I'm still alive, I've reached a point where I'm quite happy with my life. I'm progressing in all parts of my life, even though I don't get around to drawing that much 😧 but school goes first. Here's a little drawing I've worked on today, really like it and will probably take it from sketch to drawing as soon as I have some more time. Wish you all a great week, bye.

    Looking for German speaking people.

    Servus, ich wär aus Österreich (kleines Ländchen neben Deutschland) - kann also euch Deutsch. Rein aus Interesse: Lernst du Deutsch weil dir die Sprache gefällt, oder eher aus beruflichen/schulischen Gründen?

    Font change suggestions

    I'd vote for Comic Sans 😉 Seriously - never was a fan PT Sans - it's unusual round elements just seem weird to me. The other ones are fine.

    A little laugh is never wrong - but c'mon the scarecrow is about to be standing in the rain - just fair to make a silly face. ^^

    Just finished a quick sketch that I started yesterday. Tried to focus on achieving a clear sense of depth in the picture. Also was a nice opportunity to practice rainy backgrounds 😄 So here a little update on the last few days: fell into a short depressed state when school-work started to take over my schedule, made me freak out and when fear of failing creeped in it kinda froze me again. But it seems that I made it out. Now I'm gonna learn for next week's exams and I got some homework to do.

    Dear Diary...

    It's normal to think a bit too big when you start out. But it's great to have a goal - so you know what you have to learn. Maybe scale it down a little bit. Make a short story comic - or just work on the first chapter. As long as it makes YOU happy. Going to college full time and degrees doesn't say anything about your skills. The only edge it gives is forcing you to work. With a little internet research and practicing on a regular basis you can get INSANELY good at anything. And who knows, maybe after practicing some time you find someone at a similar skill level to collaborate with.

    @Matt S Hey, awesome that you want to be better at drawing. Sry for not answering earlier - got stressed out by school. To get to your question: I recently switched to Artrage 5 when I started with more painterly works. This is also the Programm I used for the house-painting. Really recommend it, it doesn't need you to deal with the thousands of settings like adobe photoshop, the interface is easy af and you can get straight to drawing/painting etc. Downside: it costs a bit --> if you're just starting out and you don't wanna invest for now then I'd say Krita is a go-to. Krita will require a little getting used to though and maybe taking the time to find some useful brushes - If you wanna go down that route, just shoot me a message and I'll try to find the brush-pack I used and send it to you. Getting discouraged by this nearly mythical skills of animation and drawing - as society seems to think - is quite common, but I'd advise you to just look at it like any other skill. You will get better as long as you keep practicing. If you want to draw cartoon-animation a good place to start are the 12 animation-principles to get better at making things seem alive. And for drawing here's a list of some topics you can work on - http://www.davidrevoy.com/article242/what-skills-are-needed-to-draw - for me it was important to break "learning to draw" up into smaller pieces, made it WAY less intimidating. Hope you have a great day and if you want feedback on one of your drawings from time to time feel free to write me.
  12. Hey, Welcome back, I wish you all the best 🤗 Great that you already did the first step to getting back on track by realizing and accepting your core-problems.

    Amazing work man - keep it up 😄 BTW: 96 % is already top score in my opinion - so don't beat yourself up about it

    Hey lads, Took a small on the side "freelance"-job for my cousin - I'm designing a Logo and helping decide on a name for a small programm to control RGB-LEDs for private light-setups. Made a quick first design to decide further from there - since at the moment it's the classical I want a logo but I've no idea what I want in specific - situation. So I started with a more playful design and from there on let her decide if she wants to go more abstract, more picture like and what aspects of her application (individualism/easy2use/etc.) she want's to represent with the logo. Awaiting a decision tomorrow. Will have to work on lots of homework and learning-stuff over the weekend. Looking forward to meeting the family tomorrow. Wish you all the best ^^

    Evening everybody, I'm quite happy with it - sure, it's not a masterpiece and the perspective is a little off but I learnt a lot. Won't be home the next few days, so I say I'm done with it and will do some pencil sketching while I'm away. If I successfully keep this up I'll probably be good enough to work a bit as a freelancer / artist over the summer. The exam on Monday was HARD - I don't know if I made it but at least I've got a clear conciousness because I learnt more than I normally would. Already hyped for the weekend. I'll stay at my parent's home and on Friday I'll meet up with an old friend of mine. Tomorrow I'll meet with my project group for a brainstorm- / sketching-session (really looking forward to it).
