Well, my very first post in my newly designed Art Journal :3 this probably won't be updated TOO much, but if you're interested in my sketches, and the progress I make with certain images, you might want to stick around, for I'll be showing stuff I won't show anywhere else.

Anyway, here's something I've been working on lately, the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. Some of you might already know the lineart, but I've been working on the colourscheme aswel. Voila:

So what do you guys think of the colours?

I've decided to upload some old artwork, just to keep everything organized and in one place:

wannabe artist
Welcome, my name is Blok, the owner of this journal and a wannabe artist. I'm 18 years old at the moment I'm writing this, I live somewhere in the Netherlands, I'm female, btw, and I have grey/blue eyes and darkblonde hair. I'm 169 cms tall short, wear contacts or glasses, two piercings in each ear and I have a wonderful Boyfriend. That's me in just a few words.

the way i work
I honestly live for art, as I'm hoping that somewhere in the future, I can make a living from it. I still have a very long way to go, but I'll get there in the end. I get inspired by a lot of different things, but mostly music, surfing around Deviantart and books. I love everything that is fantasy and some sci-fi, and a lot of my art will be inspired by those. The way I usually work is simple. First I sketch something, probably erase or throw it away multiple times before I'm happy, and when I am, I scan it. I then use Photoshop to make the lineart and colour it. However, I'm still a newbie in all of these areas. Something I take a different approach than usual. Every now and then I paint with different kinds of paint, I colour with colouring pencils or I go completely different and try techniques I never tried before. Don't expect much of those, though!

pursueing a dream
As I said before, in the far future, I want to make a living of my art. I'm not quite sure how or in what way, but I'll make it. Untill that happends, I'll spend my time watching anime/reading manga. I love One Piece to pieces, and it's the inspiration for most of the fanart I make (which isn't much). I play a lot of videogames, as I have a PS2, Wii and Nintendo DS. I play a lot of Pokemon games (they never fail to entertain), but also Phoenix Wright, Okami, Legend of Zelda and a lot of different games more. I'm a sucker for action/hack & slash adventure games. I also read a lot, though everything I read for myself is fantasy. Robin Hobb is one of my favorite writers, but I also enjoy the work of Katherine Kerr, Tolkien, Philip Pullman and more. My favorite book is the Neverending Story by Michael Ende. And while I'm doing all of the above, I listen to a lot of music. The music I enjoy most of musical music, such as Jesus Christ Superstar of Sweeney Todd music, and hardrock/metal music. My favorite bands are Linkin Park, Muse, Hoobastank, System of a Down/Serj Tankian, D'espairs Ray, Merry, Kyo and so much more. And every once in a while, I listen to completely different music. If you have any further questions, don't be afraid to ask!
