SIXMOREVODKA - I've got a job!

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 6, 2010, 1:52 PM
I've got some great news <3 but first start with a little story that happened a few years ago:

Back in december 2008 I visited DanielaUhlig in Berlin. algenpfleger who also visited Dani asked Marko Djurdjevic via pn if we could meet him in his (old) studio, because he is also living and working in Berlin. I have to admit, when it comes to artist I'm such a huuuuuuuge fangirl, its awkward! I was terribly nervous like a little girl who will meet her favourite singer in a band or something like that.... Marko is one of my favourite artists when it comes to drawing and concept art, so you can imagine how I felt D: It was also the year my mother died and I felt a bit sad the in the morning on the day we met him. I tell you: my emotions went crazy.
Anyways, we came in into his studio and I saw him the first time and after saying "hello" I started to -cry-! literally! Not only a few tears I could hide, it was more like a "buhuahuhuhuuuuuuuu" kind of cry. so it was very strange and embarrassing. My friends didnt understand what happened and they tried to hug me and cheer me up. lol. I think I was simply overwhelmed by the fact that I'm meeting one of the artists I admire the most. After we left studio I wasnt able to stop, I was like: 'omg, I cant believe it, I cried in front of him! T____T!"

Why I am telling you such an embarrassing story? Because it shows how flattered and happy I am by getting that job offer.
Now, two years later, Marko asked me if I would like to work for/with him and Jelena at the SixMoreVodka studio in Berlin! ^__________^
Of course I would like to! Yay! I've got a job! A real one! After a few years of freelancing I'm really glad about it. Working at home, sometimes not even seeing another human beeing for days get on my nerves after a while. I'm a kind of artist who doenst like to work alone, I enjoy people! It will be a blast to have such awesome artists around me everyday! (my good friend AlexPascenko is also joining the team by the way)
The day Marko asked me is around a month ago and I already did a few jobs for sixmorevodka and visited Marko and Jelena in Berlin (Thank you again for the great time, I still cant believe how nice you both are :) ) All in all I have a great feeling about it. and the studio itself, h-o-l-y c-o-w. It will be a pleasure to work there every day, its really nice.
That means I'll move to Berlin in the end of october, because november the 1st will be the first working day in Berlin.
Well, I'll keep you updated if youre interested!

and check this blog out for updates as well ^__^/ (I'm also going to post there)

Raupture and feature

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 2, 2009, 9:55 AM
Wowowowowow.
Raupture is polarizing D: Either people like it or hate it. I'm okey with both. Frankly, I never excepted so many replies. Overall, reading the comments was really funny sometimes (look at all the drama!). I dont really get why some fellow artists are absolutely offended at it. I dont take the whole picture too serious (its based on some insiders). Imho our intention is clear. It wasnt meant to be erotical stimulating. nevertheless, I have to admit its indeed provocative. The main issue was to make Alex happy, and I think we succeed :la:
So, thanks again for all the comments. I hope you understand that we cant reply so many of them.
As far as I know it wont be deleted.

btw: even my father liked it somehow and took it as a satire. He's very open-minded o_o (maybe more than I am?) and he has got a dA-account now! lol
Do you remember the owl in my ID for example?

Beware! long journal

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 5, 2009, 5:38 AM


Heyhey!

I feel a bit bored and my journal needs an update.
how is everyone?

I've got a tendinitis in my right hand :( I cant draw or paint like I usually do. sometimes I use my left hand for studies. That's quite enough but it feels so odd after a while. I had better to stop before my left hand starts to act weird too P: Just because my left hand isnt practiced as my right hand.
I'll continue my commissions after I feel as fit as a fiddle again!
Apropos, I take that injury as a sign in time. I should hear more to what my body wants me to tell. My body said "Hey, heyheyheyhey, your hand already feels tired, you better stop!"
I want to do more for my fitness again. I'll buy me a powerball or something fimilar for my hand. back trouble shouldnt be a problem too if you do enough against it...Today three friends and me will go for a jog. I want to do that regularly now Ò_Ó! We have to take care of our body if we want to paint and draw forever. arrrgh, I was so stupid but its never too late, is it?

Not being able to paint seriously piss me off! There are so many things I want to try out. I collected a bunch of great photorefs I want to do studies from. I feel sooo inspired this year. hmmm, everyone should have friends to hang out and draw with. It really helps you to get up of your sofa. I think my life changed pretty much. I used to hang around a lot with my schoolmates, wingding'ing every time we could. Now I became a party pooper, some ppl would say I became antisocially, I know that, but I dont really care. It's great how it is atm. I feel more productive in comparison to the past years. And I see the development in my art ( well at least a bit!)
It's october and my mother died exactly one year ago. Getting a different attitude to life may be also a reason why I'm so into drawing and painting again.
Like Oscar Wilde said (in Dorian Gray): 'The aim of life is self-development. To realize one's nature perfectly - that is what each of us is here for.' I see my self-development mostly in painting and drawing. I'm not retired from public life or retreating into my shell again because I found friends who are like me. sharing a passion is awesome. It could be like this forever, but somehow I KNOW things will change and I dont know how to deal with it yet. It's just a feeling and a natural rule of life (that says life changes fast, lulz) that makes me so fucking melancholic sometimes...

When my hand gets fit again I want to draw and and paint again. I want to paint more with subtle colors. I'm aiming a natural feeling in my paintings. Thats a conclusion I get after lifestudies I guess. Artists like Alex Kanevsky or Jeremy Lipking totally make me wide-eyed. awesome use of colors.

I would never write such a long journalentry if my hand would work. Typing with only one hand is pretty new for me, haha.
sorry for the long blabla, thanks for reading!

hugs!

LAB-mode?

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 11, 2009, 5:04 AM


Is somebody painting in LAB-mode?
I usually use RGB but sometimes it seems to me that the colors blend nicer in LAB-mode O_O
I have no idea how the colos actually react, i dont get it.

BRUSHES

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 3, 2009, 2:51 AM


Hey everyone!

I've got the question a lot what brushes I use. Well I usually use a hard-edged roundbrush (and airbrush for very soft parts, but usually you can blend well with a roundbrush - using the Alt-button ;) ) I dont make own brushes - I just leech them from other brush sets.

yumedust uploaded some very nice brushes! Take a look:
23 Brushes for Photoshop by yumedust
The first one is the most important. It's completely similar to that brush I use.

Some great brushsets:

Kyena : www.tascha.ch/content/index.ph…

barontieri : www.barontieri.com/atelier.htm

Goro : www.area-56.de/_area56_data/tu…

leventep : leventep.deviantart.com/journa…

If you have suggestions for brushsets, let me know! :)

And here is the link of my (oooold) walkthrough (because I still get the question if I could do a videotutorial):

This journal entry will be in german only, because it adresses only german speaking watcher. Its about a german con and it feels more confortable atm :) Please dont be angry!

Wer geht zur Buchmesse?? :'D Ich wollte nur sagen, dass ich auch da bin. xD Passt ja ganz gut, da ich auch in Leipzig wohne. :3
Ich weiß noch nichts welche Tage ich da sein werde, aber vielleicht trifft man ja den einen oder anderen Zeichner. Besonders, da ich ja die vergangenen Jahre so viele Leute verpasst habe! o.o/)

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 21, 2009, 1:24 PM


Hi!

I just wanted to  leave a message to my commissioners and everyone who noted me or wrote me a comment(I still have over 40 notes that arent read :( ) After my mom's death I felt like I need time for myself but I'll get back to you bit by bit! (thank you everyone for all your wishes, I really feel better now, even if I still cry sometimes...but thats pretty normal I quess...? )
The next months will be stressy somehow so I think the commissions have to wait a bit longer :/

Please dont be angry if I dont reply to every single comment, I really wish I could! And I really appreciate it!

Thank you for over 1 000 000 pageviews and another DD!!! D: I still cant beliiiieve it~

Hi everybody,

I don't know where to start. A lot of things happened. My mother died this month. That's the main reason why I was'nt very active here and why I won't be in the near future. There still are some things to organize. My father, my boyfriend and I will travel to Chrudim (in the Czech Republic) next week in order to bury my mother there. Czech Republic was my mother's home country and she always kept a close relationship to the country. Of course the past weeks weren't easy for us but I'm happy that I was there to help her as much as I could. You don't have to worry about me. I'm able to look into the future optimistically. My father wants to sell the flat in cologne in order to be able to afford two flats for himself and us here in Leipzig: Is there someone who is or knows someone who's interested in buying a big flat with a garden in cologne?  
It's the flat I grew up  in - there's so many memories connected to it. It won't be easy giving it away but life changes checklessly...

Thank you for your replies to my last journal (the one in which I wrote about the illness and the situation and later hid it). They helped me a lot surviving those difficult times.

....and sorry for not replying notes and comments lately.
