Hey there Yves, I would just like to say *Ahem* WELCOME TO THE WOODS!!!! ^_^

This a great beginning gallery. You certainly have a firm grasp on shading and coloring. Beautiful pieces. I expect more great things from you!

1 Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "Many thanks! I guess my studies in Computer graphics pay off on the shading 2 And I am already working on new pieces... "

Hi! Greetings from Germany also and thanks for visiting my gallery! IŽm from the Gothic scene also, love collecting US comics since IŽm 15 and I hope weŽll get to see more of your great work in the future. 17) Once youŽve started with arts you canŽt stop it forever...

:-) Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "Indeed. Drawing is like an addiction 2 When I finish a pic I usually already have the next one in my mind... "

Nice to meet another GIMP fan! Love the armour and the sturdy faery. I'm making do with a mouse for now but I plan to get a tablet when I can afford it.

:-) Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "Drawing with a mouse is hard, a stylus works much better (after you got used to it, it's a bit different to a "normal" pen). I have an 8"x6" Wacom Graphire 3. It's the perfect size and you can get one for not too much money (compared to the Intuos models). Still it's worth every cent. 2 "

You love hobbits,right?Me too.I drew my original Hindu/Indian female character I called Kalini(it means 'flower',like Kalina in Polish) who's sharing her friendship with Merry and Pippin.
Of course is that my idea12I love it,when those hobbits love my Kalini as friend very much.I hope that you also imagine of it.But do not think that hobbits has just fell in love with her *giggles*.
What do you think about my opinions?

1 Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "Yes, I like hobbits a lot. They are simple, but cheerful people that know how to enjoy all the good stuff life gives them, but can be very stubborn when they have to. Although I didn't like Frodo in the "Lord of the Rings" movies, as he always was whining and moaning like a little girl. He seemed much stronger in the books...And about your Kalini character: I guess, Merry and Pippin always need more female friends 12 "

I'm so glad that sounds awesome for you.That was my brilliant idea.I know you think I'm crazy,but everybody has got unbelievable imaginations thinking that they sharing friendship with characters from Tolkien's "Lord Of The Rings".

Oh,I forgot.I finished my newest drawing of my Kalini and Pippin as mermaids,I called "Underwater Friendship"12
It's so sweet,don't you!?

1 Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "Hmm, I can't imagine Pippin as a mermaid... the fish tail and the boobs make it a strange picture... 12 "

Excellent gallery, I love the simple line style. Very nice stuff I think the Drow knight is my favorite, with the Dwarf a close second. Keep it up post more.

:-) Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "I am doing my very best. But I am very slow at drawin and work and other stuff keeps me busy, too. 12"

I understand you,Yves.But I did not drawn my Kalini with nude boobs because she's dressed up traditional Indian blouse on,so do not worry about it,I'm not making Kama Sutra of Indian girls with hobbits^^

1 Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "What a pity *laughs*"

Hey, Yves thanks for visiting my gallery, and I just thought I'd return the favor, and I enjoyed your work, mostly the portrait of a butterfly, the use of the different colors is good, and it's not every day that you see full figured fairies. Keep up the good work.

:-) Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "Thank you! I had much fun drawing the fairy and it actually turned out better than expected. 2"

Hey there,Yves.How the day goes?Very good12
*giggles*You would not believe,I had just made some newest works.One of them is showing my Kalini holding Boromir's hand and she smiled at him as they walked and he was little confused about her act and behind them there was Pippin who has got insane of jealous1
Now hobbit is going to kill him for stealing his friend^_^


:-) Yves Branitar Maurischat replies: "Can your pics be viewed on Elfwood?"
