Thanks :)
Well you are good at portraits! I could not draw like you do... Nice to see how your style evolved from the beginning by the way.
Did you ever consider trying other techniques? Just for fun? I like to change techniques some times, I think it is nice.
Thanks for your nice comment and for the llama ;)

Thanks for your comment.
What do you mean by other techniques? Watercolours or acrylic, e.g.? (I really would like to draw landscapes in watercolours, but I don`t like acrylics). Or do you mean another style in pencil.( I think I always come back to the old style). But maybe I try abstract paintings? If you have an idea for another technique.....???

Yes watercolour, oil, markers, whatever you feel like trying.
I tell you that because I discover a lot when I try a different approach. If think you can master something more if you look around in the same time.
In my case, I thought watercolour could not make sufficient contrasts so I used china ink on top of it, or markers sometimes, and now I try pastels. I feel like I rediscover my first feelings as a painter when I try something really new to me. this is really nice.
About abstract, yes it also helps thinking about light in general and colours. I suck at using colours so I really enjoy abstract now. Of course you have to deal with how bad you are when you try to change, because of course the beginnings are hard... But after some time things start to work again and you can enjoy a new part of your creativity, if you are happy with it.
Anyway, keep drawing :)
Cheers,
A.

Thank you very much for answering! Yes, I like watercolours together with ink, too. I think  (and I have also tried it a little bit) it looks wonderful in landscape paintings. So I will try farther on. 
Thanks again
And keep on drawing, you too!
Greetings

Wow ! Das ist ja der Wahnsinn ! Es beruhigt mich, dass die Zeichnung 80x120 cm groß ist...ansonsten hätte ich mich NOCH mehr über die Details wundern müssen :D .  Macht richtig Spaß hineinzuzoomen und einen genaueren Blick drauf zu werfen. Sehr schöne Arbeit :aww: !

Hi,
thanks for the message, I don't speak a very good german but I think I get the point :)
Glad you like these big and time-consuming drawings of mine! I like your David bowie a lot! Impressive portraits :) I really suck at portraits, impossible for me... I cannot read and remember faces at all.
Yeah I spent a lot of time on this drawing. And I still don't really consider it finished, but it belongs to ancient times now... I could have it scanned high resolution at the time, so you can really zoom in indeed. But you cannot really have the feeling on a small screen anyway...
Oh I have a new one to finish, pretty big size too, but I don't have it in Zurich, it is rolled somewhere in France. I am more going to abstraction these days, to work a bit on the light. I'll go back to landscapes later.
Thanks for the comment and the watch ;) cheers,
A.

Oh sorry....due to the fact your living in Switzerland I thought you speak german :blush: revisit by dxd   ...And thanks for your nice words concerning my portraits ! As for me it's the other way around: I like drawing portraits but I'm absolutely not able to do any landscape drawings :D. I'm curious about your next works :aww:

Hi :)
Ha I cannot imagine this. How can it be simpler to do portraits? If you do a little mistake, then the portrait is screwed. In a landscape, you can make your tree bigger or wider, no problem. Of course, then, the lightening is different, etc.
I tried portrait, it is terrible every time... Well I guess it is a matter of taste :)
Cheers,
A.

Well...maybe it's -BECAUSE OF- the more of "freedom" which excists while drawing landscapes :wink by Gomotes   . Strange... but I think it's unfortunately easier for me to handle the perfectionism of a portrait, than a quite free interpretation of a landscape. I think it's a matter of taste AND a matter of disposition ;)

Ah yeah maybe that could be it.
Actually when I started to imagine landscape, I was completely exhausted after one hour of drawing. I really had to concentrate to se the geometry of the sceneries and all the details. Now I feel like I have nothing to do, the details come by themselves. I just have to fill the sheet of paper and think about the light. But then it becomes a bit boring. I should document about the trees maybe. But I am in a geology department so in fact I see a lot of landscapes and different rocks, I start to put some geology in my drawings. Yeah I got to get a job in a biology department and could draw properly :)
Anyway, I like this freedom a lot, maybe it is why I try to do abstract now, it is pure freedom!
Very difficult though...
Maybe you should try to invent portraits ;) now THAT must be difficult!

6 years...is too long... for me. I think I would go bananas; certainly loose "grip " on the whole idea - once I worked for about a year on a drawing ( on and off, sometimes not for weeks ) and find this amazing. Respect.

I actually went banana... At the end, that was so hard to finish... At some point I had to declare it done, but you always find a place in which you could add a little of this or that. That was really difficult. But when you frame it, that is such a pleasure :)
Thanks for the comment!

Same here! I do a lot of hiking on my leisure, and very much prefer the kind of landscape where you'll have many hills and turns blocking the view ahead, so that you'll regularly experience the surprise of what lies ahead.

this is awesome! I'm really impressed of your technique and especially the shading/textures and clean lines at the rocks.. I love also the contrast between the rocky/harsh left side and lively environment of the forest at the right. The sky seems like a connection between the two, the clouds to me being a reformation of stones to bushes.. beautiful

Thanks for this comment!
I did not realize that the sky was actually a connection between he forest and the cliffs. This is probably what annoy me in this drawing in fact. I don't think it is very stable from the point of view of the composition but it is so detailed that it still works fine. This was really a though drawing, not sure I will try again things of this size...
Thanks for the Llama also :la:

Ah allez je suis content quand meme ! C'est juste que je voudrais etre plus efficace. Je crois qu'on peut dire que ce dessin a été de loin le moins efficace que j'aie jamais fait... Ca m'a pris un temps et une énergie... J'aimerais pouvoir m'exprimer plus simplement en fait. Je suis entrain de vraiment me mettre à la peinture là, j'essaye d'en enchainer une série pour me faire la main. Je commence à pouvoir imaginer des aquarelles, ça je n'y était jamais arrivé. Je n'ai vraiment pas de don pour la couleur alors il y a du boulot là dessus. Mais en tout cas je m'éclate en ce moment. Et puis je démarre quelques portraits, ça aussi c'est nouveau pour moi.
A plus :)

Thanks ;) Yes you are coming from the side of creativity. I come more from technique and look for some creativity... Both are very important! I never tried oil and acrylic though it could be very interesting from the point of view of creativity. But I would like to work on my technicity first... I don't think what I do is very efficient for the moment. I spend too much time on each stuff.

Agree! :D
I tried oil, but didn't have enough patience to wait them dry :p Acrylic works for me, and it's water-based, so it's better for hands :)
Well, being good in one or two media can be considered great already :) and you are a master (or shall I say a Doctor? lol) in this one :)

luckytoyn Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012
Thanks a lot for your kindness! :) I appreciate.
Not easy to be a doctor here. I don't know what I am going to do in 1 year when I come back in France. I have to look for a job and probably to look for something else than research... There in no position in this domain...
Painting really makes me free. Nobody ask me anything, I can do exactly anything I want. This is freedom!
