Ara Ara, hihihi

And another picture inspired by my awesome trip to the zoo. They didn't have aras to be honest, but some other kinds of parrots. But I love, love, looooove these colorful beauties. They make me dream of far away jungles, tropical fruits, wonderful flowers and sunshine. It's already July and the weather here is just BAD. And if the heavens aren't willing to send me some sunshine, then I have to get some myself. ^^

Mini Sketchbook

My new mini sketchbook (A5). It's just for boredom sketching when I don't want to waste my good paper. Also pencil looks a lot better on this kind of paper since it's a little thicker and has more structure. Hu well,... It's definitely nothing big and not my best either. It's just for relaxing a little and my new anti-artblock-campaign. ;)


Out of boredom

I've been to the Tierpark Hagenbeck (the famous zoo of Hamburg) last week. The tropical aquarium is SO worth visiting.


rit's Sketchbook Vol.13 - Nocturnal Silence Special

And even more sketches! I've been drawing my OC Aurore of my Started-Years-Ago-But-Never-Continued much loved Manga "Nocturnal Silence" again. I've been thinking about the story a lot and I really want to start over again and this time not stop after 6 pages. Anyways, here's the re-design of Aurore's outfit. Though I'm planning to change some details, for example the belt, skirt and shoes. But all in all this is it:

rit's Sketchbook Vol.12

Yes, I'm still alive! Though I do feel more so now than I did in the last half year. 2011 just isn't my year I guess. But it's getting better,... Or rather I'm working on that. Anyways, I didn't draw anything big since the wanderer pic, but I sketched quite a lot. So here are some pages with random sketches!



After several visits at the orthopaedic specialist and an MRT scan, I finally found out the reason for my shoulder pain: Slipped disk in my neck. I really didn't expect it was something so severe, but it was. Now I got two injections to the incarcerated nerve under a CT and I'm fine. Yay! I could finally draw again (although it was still a bad idea; the pain came back a little after I finished the coloration).

It may not look like it, but the coloring was so annoying.
