  • 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

  • Storytime Part 10

    Unfortunately the guests did not bring their children, so there is no playmate for Maus. The adults chat, but the little Maus is bored. He has done all his chores and helped with the preparations and it’s still not dark outside, so he is allowed to go out and play in the snow.

    Leider ist kein Spielpartner für die kleine Maus mitgekommen und während sich die Gäste mit Mama und Papa Maus unterhalten wird es der kleinen Maus etwas langweilig. Da sie ihre Aufgaben erledigt hatte und es draußen noch ein bisschen hell war durfte sie noch raus gehen um im Schnee zu spielen.

    Almost all invited guests are there now and everybody sings along in a christmas carol. Mama and Papa thank them all for coming.

    Als alle Gäste endlich eingetroffen sind wird erst mal ein Weihnachtslied angestimmt bei dem alle mitsingen. Mama Maus und Papa Maus bedanken sich bei den Gästen für ihr kommen.

    Family Maus has finished all the preparations right on time when the first guests arrive. Hot chocolate is served. Maus provides everyone with a cup.

    Rechtzeitig als Familie Maus mit all den Vorbereitungen fertig ist, kommen auch schon die ersten Gäste. Zur Begrüßung wird heiße Schokolade gereicht. Maus schnappt sich ein Tablett mit den Tassen und geht von Gast zu Gast.

    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.
