Now I'm trying to do some coloured landscape studies. At the beginning I don't want to do them too detailed because I want to practice perspective and how light hits on objects.

I've found some old screenshot studies which I've done in November 2013.

Now I'm working on new screenshot studies to learn how to create a good and interesting atmosphere.

After some black and white studies I've returned to the usage of colours. The following picture shows my sister and the main character of "Warm Bodies".

Since April I could not get further because I've worked too stubbornly, have been blocked all the time and so I spread myself too thin - that's why I had a little break. Now I've decided to do this blog for documenting my work process. This helps me to deal with my problems but even more to focus on the solutions.

To work more freely, I've restarted by doing a couple of quick black and white studies - portraits as well as landscapes (which I had never done before) - without sketching and most of them drawn on one layer. After that I've painted a few pictures from imagination.
I've noticed that I struggled with the background of my illustrations and that's why I keep on working.

Here's some stuff from imagination:
