Hi there,

so you found your way to my profile. I hope you like some of my works, but as you might see, I'm no professional. I just finished high school last year and am currently in my first semester in art school.
I always try to improve, so if you notice mistakes or things I could do differently, please don't hesitate to critique, your advise will be very welcome.

Traditional art:
Normally, I'm into painting and drawing. I don't always stick to a certain style (mainly because I'm young and I haven't quite found my own style, yet) but I try whatever I feel like. Lot's of experimenting, as you might see.

Polymer clay:
I also love to create little minature polymer clay charms, mostly sweet foods, like donuts, cupcakes, tarts and cakes but also different things like animals. I recently bought a lot of material to extend my possibilities in making more cute charms and also plan on selling them soon.

Digital art:
I got a new laptop and a grafic tablet for christmas and I am really looking forward to getting into digital painting. Unfortunately, I haven't done this before and it will be hard work to become acceptable at it. As soon as I have time for it, I will start practising and I hope I will be half as good as some people on here are some day.

Photography:
I also really like taking pictures and playing around with them, too. Most of them are snapshots though. I don't always really plan on taking pictures but sometimes a scene is just too perfect. I'm a little limited, due to my amateur camera though. Although I have a new one now, it's still just a normal digital camera, no SLR.

OMG X3
Danke fürs faven~~~ :tighthug:

(btw, ich sehe du hast es in eine Kunstschule geschafft? Fürs erste; Herzlichen Glückwunsch (auch wenn es ein Jahr her ist; ich freu mich trotzdem für dich : > ). Und wenn du nichts gegen hast, darf ich fragen wie lang du für dein Portfolio gebraucht hast und ob es schwer war irgendwo beizutreten? Ich hab nächstes Jahr mein Abitur, wenn alles glatt läuft, und von daher sollte ich schleunigst mal anfangen....nehm ich an?!) :tighthug:

hey, klar, kein Ding. Musste zwar erstmal gucken, was ich da von dir gefaved hab, hab's aber gleich wiedergefunden :)

Also ich hab nach dem Abi aus diversen Gründen (die jetzt den Rahmen sprengen würden^^) ein Jahr gewartet, bevor ich mich an Kunsthochschulen beworben hab und das kann ich auch empfehlen, jede Form von Abstand zur Schule bringt einen auf jeden Fall weiter und hilft einem das ganze Studium (ist egal, Work and Travel, Au Pair, Arbeiten gehen, Praktika, etc.) Außerdem haben (aus welchen Gründen auch immer) manche Kunsthochschulen was gegen die, die "frisch" aus der Schule kommen. Ein bisschen mehr Lebenserfahrung macht sich oft besser. Ich hab ein Praktikum bei einem Verlag gemacht und währenddessen an der Mappe gearbeitet. Ich wäre auch direkt nach dem Abi nicht genommen worden, glaube ich, das eine Jahr hat viel gebracht für mich. Aber was ich so in deiner Gallerie sehe, brauchst du dir denke ich keine Sorgen machen und kannst es auf jeden Fall auch gleich versuchen. Ich hatte/habe nicht so viel zu bieten und ich hab's auch geschaft :D
Kommt auch noch drauf an, was genau du studieren willst, da gibt's noch ein Paar Sachen die man dann speziell beachten kann, je nach Studienfach. Kleinigkeiten, die einfach einen besseren Eindruck machen sollen. Also falls du irgendwie spezielle Fragen hast, ich versuch gerne zu helfen :)
