Hello I'm from Hamburg, Germany and I'm supposed to be some kind of animator person. I like to create art for games and love writing, storytelling and all that jazz.
I'm currently a 2D artist / lead animator in the videogame industry and work on my own stories in my spare time.

Just a reminder: Critiques and comments are worth more than favs and llamas.
Interests

Hey folks, quick update!

So I got a new PC in 2015 and it's awesome and powerful enough to carry my dreams.. but it broke. Twice. The two big illustrations I started this year are still WIPs and instead I mostly did concepts and writing for my project on my old faithful laptop, hence the lack of uploads this year.

I still got alot of stuff done so 2015 wasn’t that bad overall, just damn fast.. I mean seriously, my calendar was set to october until yesterday! 2016 will hopefully be the year of storyboards, so that’ll produce some uploadable snippets at least. Happy holidays!

  • Listening to: Undertale OST
  • Watching: One Punch Man
  • Playing: Mario Maker / Dark Souls 2

Was wondering if you're self taught, and if so, do you use references such as studying other peoples art to utilize and modify their technique into something entirely new?

Was trying to understand what people mean by "self taught".

btw, nice art and animation on newgrounds.

I am mostly self-taught with (much appreciated) help here and there, but you should really do the things you described wether you are self-taught or not! Looking at other peoples' techniques, cherry-picking the best parts and regurgitating them to form something of your own is an integral part of an artists self-discovery process.

(People who did not study art usually call themselves self-taught.)

And thanks for the compliment! Also get a drawing tablet as soon as possible, you won't regret it!

oh, so it is an ok thing for most hmm? Unfortunately for me, I don't have many things around me or on the outside to practice drawing on.

also, you must have read my bio of how I make art with a mouse I bet lol. I see it as practice before I actually get one 8)
