Sketchdump1 by crazy-fruit
Sketchdump1
From left to right:
Those three girls form the fictional band "One more Miracle". I developted them for a schoolwork where we had to design the cover of a Vinyl. I than kept them as OCs, tho I barly draw them.
I think he was supposed to be the creater of the universe.
Hermione Granger. (A month ago or so I started to listen to the HP Audiobooks again)
Ron Weasly
Random
My very first Commander Shepard...
Sketched Janets armprothesis.
Janet
Sort of genderbent Juvia
I named him Wanda but at the moment I'm searching for a new name. Sketched him more often the last days.
Angry Juvia
Random but freckles....because...well FRECKLES!
Janet
"Wanda" again...walking in space
Short haired Janet (also without her eyepatch)
I know the anatomy for Janets pose is wrong but I like it because I pushed myself out of my comfortzone and draw her in such a 'difficult" pose


Those sketches aren't older than 1 month. Most of them where done on copypaper with a black ballpen.

My last journal (not counting the DA birthday one) was around 1 Year ago. 2 days before I left my hometown for my volunteer year. I'm back since Sundaynight and I guess it's the right time to write a little review.

In August I started at the northcoast of Germany. I lived in a small house in the middle of nowhere with no internet except my surfstick which had nearly no signal. I learned a lot about birds in the first month.
My main task was to count every second weekend the birds in a certain area. The waddensea is the most important restarea for birds during their migraton from Scandinavia, Taymyr Peninsula and west Greenland to Banc d' Augin in Africa or even South Africa. Here the birds can rest and feed to get enough energy to fly non-stop South or North. Because the birds are all in one place they get counted every second weekend from the Netherlands to Denmark.
1...2...3...birds!
Counting a small amount of birds is easy but counting a swarm of several thousands isnt!

This is only a small part of an oystercatcherswarm. Counting everyone would take to much time but guessing is to vague. So you count 10 birds and add the area the take to the whole swarm.

We also checked the dirt line every second weekend for dead birds which the sea washed onshore. You check the birds for oil and rings. It's interesting how you almost after every storm find a fulmar or that you find during August and December a lot of young gulls because they don't survive their first weeks without the parents feeding.

In September I transfered onto the Island Langeoog where I spent the rest of my year!

At the end of march we started to go though terrain and note down most of the breeding birds on maps. You need to start before dawn because most of the birds sing the most a dawn. We most of the time worked for 10hrs a day. It was the most exausting time but also the best.

What you get for staying up at 4:30am:

Now onto the birds:

During birdmigration and with the right wind is nearly everything possible:

Untitled by crazy-fruit
A snowgoose. Maybe you know them from documentries and than you remember they actually live in America but not Europe! This is right but you can't be sure if it didn't escape a zoo or similair.

Untitled by crazy-fruit

A beared vulture. They still are the rarest raptors in europe. Their wings can nearly be 3m long. This one was a young one who propapbly came from the Austrain or Swiss Alps.

Untitled by crazy-fruit

A red-necked phalarope. I hoped for this bird for many months. One day in May it thankfully showed it self.


All in all it was an amazing year and if you ever ask yourself if you should do a volunteeryear: DO IT!

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt 6 years

  2. What does your username mean? I had the idea for it in the 5th grade. There is no meaning behind it.

  3. Describe yourself in three words. Birder, Artenthusiast, melancolic

  4. Are you left or right handed? Right

  5. What was your first deviation? I don't remember. Propably one of my OCs

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Watercolourpaintings and sketches of my OCs.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? I'm happy with my own style! I never liked the idea of copying another artist. Have your own style, struggle with it, develop it, master it!

  8. What was your first favourite? A drawing by my brotherPointer by S-h-e-g


  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? I guess digital

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? :iconlapis-razuri:, :iconcrys-art:, :iconwei723:, :iconscary-panda:, :icondctb:, :iconmizaeltengu:, :iconcomipa: and many more!


  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? :iconlapis-razuri:

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I stay up for  :iconcrys-art:s latenightartstreams and a lot of artist inspired me to get more serious about my art.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? Watercolours. (most of the time)

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? My bed?! It depends. Inspiration can get me anywhere but the last year I mostly drew and painted on my bed.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? It's not really deviantArt related but I remember tons of great livestreamsessions of Razuri and Comipat

Done during a trainride. It was harder than I thought to paint during the trainride.

(still drawing/painting Juvia and nearly nobody else)

Hi! Ich hab dich gerade über deine sehr ansprechenden Aquarelle gefunden und hab dann gerade auf deiner Seite gesehen, dass Du ans Wattenmeer gezogen bist?  Das finde ich wahnsinnig cool - Ich liebe die Nordsee <33
Und Robben gibt es da oben doch auch, oder? Du hast es gut, haha. ;D
Viel Spaß im Norden!

Hallo,

vielen Dank für das Kompliment. Einige deiner Aquarelle gefallen mir auch sehr gut.

Es stimmt tatsächlich, dass ich im hohen Norden lebe und arbeite. Ich kann deine Liebe zur Nordsee sehr gut verstehen. Insgesamt ein toller Lebensraum.

Genau. Es gibt hier Seehunde und Kegelrobben. Selten verirrt sich auch mal ein Walross hierher.

Vielen Dank!
Dir auch, wo auch immer du gerade bist ;)
