Or how I named the photo album containing my artwork.

I always had a huge interest in drawing painting, sadly I never really got deeper into it.
These days at the helpdesk, during calls I scribble anyhow so from time to time I also draw a few lines.
Being a huge fan of the manga and anime scene, I naturally try to draw that style.
Somehow I’m not even doing half bad, considering the fact I haven’t really actively drawn in years, and I never really had someone teach me the basics.
Truth be told I spend a few hours a week looking at YouTube tutorials, and honestly there are some very good ones out there.
And since the manga drawing art hasn’t really become to absorbed by our western society, the Internet is actually the best road to take.

So far I have done some pencil drawings and most of them were “inked” using a black aquarelle pencil, witch really does the charm.
Up till now I have drawn on paper and scanned the image afterwards. This has to do with me being two-handed, yes your heard me right, this is actually a bad thing in my case.
It’s all jolly good fun to be able to write with both hands, however my right hand is useless for drawing, and my hand eye coordination on the computer is non-existent on that same left hand.
So now my most pending task will be to learn to draw from scratch on the computer, because drawing digitally is just so much easier, once you get the hang of it.

These are my first attempts at drawing lately:
Drawing 1
Drawing 2
Drawing 3

I also went on a limb and inked one of my pencil drawings digitally and went as far as colouring the thing.
Pencil version
Digitally inked version
Coloured version

Feel free to comment on my attempts to actually output some of artistic vibes ^^

I hope to add more of my work in the future.
