Art Improvement (Hell) Challenge - Day 1 by NaiBuff Art Improvement (Hell) Challenge - Day 1 by NaiBuff
I saw Kaizoku-hime doing this 30 days art improvement challenge fav.me/d5893gd ... and since I want to stop slacking I thought I could try it as well, and she encouraged me to do so as well..
so yeah, lets start with this! :happybounce: 

1. Self-Portrait - Introduce yourself:
so, since I've never really introduced myself on my deviantart account I'll give you all some facts about me:
I'm a 17 years old student from germany, my goal is to study game design after I graduate from school next year and then work as an artist in the games industrie, or even as an indie developer or freelance artist.
I have a Youtube channel called "Thunder Draws" where I upload speedpaints and stuff like that, and thats probably where most of you know me from.
(btw: I've recorded all of the painting process and will be uploading it as well as the stuff from the rest of the challenge)

I've never really done a self portrait so far, and whilst painting it a had the feeling that it would never look like me... but luckily it went smoothly and now it actually kinda looks like me^^
It took me 2 hours to paint, and I stole some ideas from Dana, like the monochromatic colors and the background
here's her painting: fav.me/d9052mp

Really cool man, the portrait does look like you. With your talent I'm sure you'll do great in the games industry, I myself am 17 and learning game design along with programming. I wish us both luck and keep up the great work

Thanks!
yeah, I hope that I'll be able to study at the university of applied sciences (digital games, bachelor of arts) in cologne to get more time to improve before I really have to find a job on which my life depends on... though there only are ~35 slots for new students each year... but I'm positive that I'll make it :)

I actually do some programming as well! fun stuff! :D
I wish you luck too! keep going strong too buddy!
