  • Artrage4 Portrait Speed Drawing Video

    As a new years resolution i wanted to improve my digital drawing skills by drawing more with my tablet and various programs. My favourite so far is Artrage4. Several times i tried my best to draw something in Photoshop but i just failed so much. It just doesn’t feel like drawing at all. I still want to try Krita though just out of curiosity since there is a free Version of it . At the beginning of the month i bought a new graphic tablet. Since then i draw every day on it even if it’s just some sketches. Although i think i improved a bit in that time i still have a long way to go to become better in shading, colouring, mood and scenery/composition. But there is always something to become better at, isn’t it? I still struggle a bit with how much longer it takes me to draw on the tablet, but i save up time scanning, correcting, touching up or even cutting out some Illustrations. Until now i drew some portraits, a few artworks, tried some handlettering and coloured some of my traditional drawings for a book project. Most of the Illustrations i created in the last few weeks you can see on my Instagram account (anja.sturm) and my facebook page Anja Sturm Illustration . I also plan on recording my drawings with OBS and make little timelapse videos in the future. And because i just finished and uploaded my first video i thought it would be a nice opportunity to write a small blog post about it. I made a really really short video just to give you an idea of how i draw digitally. The original video material is about 55 minutes and i don’t think someone would watch that without some talking. As you may have noticed i added some more details to the illustration, just didn’t record it.

    All the best,
    Anja

  • Meet The Artist

    A few days ago i did the #meettheartist tag on instagram (@anja.sturm) and i thought it would be nice to share it here as well. There wasn’t enough space for ALL the information i had in mind but i hope you get a vague idea of who is behind this blog. Is there something else that you’d like to know?

    All the best

    Just as Maus starts to walk towards the kitchen to bring another cup of hot chocolate, the small rabbit grabs Maus’ hand and pulls him outside to play in the snow.
    END

    Schnell will Maus zurück in die Küche. Gerade als er loslaufen will um noch Heiße Schokolade zu holen, nimmt der kleine Hase Maus’ Hand um ihn nach draußen in das Schneetreiben zu ziehen, um mit ihm zu spielen.
    ENDE

    Papa Maus found a tree very quickly and comes home again. Together they decorate the tree until Mama Maus also arrives at home.

    Papa Maus war recht schnell fündig und kommt daraufhin wieder heim. Zusammen schmücken beide schon mal den Baum bis Mama Maus wieder heim kommt.
