Hey guys, whoever is still watching me :P

I'm not going to upload anything here anymore. I want to make a fresh start now that I've started my study. I will leave all my pictures up, but nothing new will be added. So long and take care!

Hallo :3

I'm a girl from the Netherlands (5VWO), and I've recently started uploading pictures here again. I draw mostly traditional as you can see, mostly because I don't have much experience digitally. I'm trying to change that though >3

I love comics, be it Franco/Belgian, Manga or superhero strips, and my biggest dream would be becoming a comic artist or illustrator. I always have numerous stories running through my head, it'd be cool to put them on paper sometime. I've got a year school to finish first though, and then it's on to art college :la: (well, hopefully).

I'm almost always up for an art trade and sometimes requests, so just ask if you're interested :3

Oh, and critique on any of my pictures is always welcome! As I said I'm aiming to go to art college, so it's very helpful if others point out issues where I don't see them. Do watch the author comment though, I sometimes put there what I think went wrong, so that you won't have to say things twice.

Also, though I draw anthropomorfic animals at times, I notice that now I'm getting (slightly) better at humans, I'm enjoying drawing those just as much. I don't know if I would be considered a 'furry', maybe in a sense that I like animals? But that's about it. I really don't understand why people make such a fuss about it either, I mean, there's always been loads of tv shows and stuff featuring cartoon animals, and fairy tales and beast fables date back millennia.

Meh. Anyway, might add some more later on :3

pff dat kan je niet zo even leren xD wat voor idee heb je dan? o3o

je moet em.. een goed verhaal hebben, karakters goed uitgedacht, en het moet duidelijk te lezen zijn (dus dat je weet hoe de plaatjes lopen). Ook belangrijk: niet teveel tekst! Probeer zo veel mogelijk in de plaatjes te verwerken, want daar zijn ze voor. Dit is wel heel kort door de bocht, d'r zitten echt heel veel kanten aan.
het helpt ook om veel strips te lezen en te kijken hoe die in elkaar zitten.

lees wat van deze:
