FAQ



Can we be friends?
Of course we can, but please get to know me first by commenting, noting, etc.! :)

Nice art. Can I use it on my blog?
As long as you keep the watermark, my name, and a link to my original on deviantart, it shall be fine with me. It's good promotion :) However, if I notice that those rules are harmed, I won't hesitate to point it out as theft!

Do you take requests?
Unfortunately not because I don't have much time, but I open comissions once a while so keep an eye on my art status!

What do you use for your work?
I usally work with a Wacom Wireless Pen Tablet and with Photoshop CS4 on my digital art.
For traditional work I mostly use ink, acrylics and watercolor on watercolor paper or canvases.

I like your comic! Will there be more in future?
Unfortunatly, as much as I love all my story lines, I doubt that I'll have the time to continue or finish them. Anyway, it may be that I'll get in the mood to work with them again in future. :)

Can I draw your characters?
Of course you can! - everyone loves gifts I guess

Can you teach me how to draw?
Okay I'm definatley not a good teacher at all.. But search for tutorials and take a look at stock photos! Using stocks really helps you with the anatomy! I never had a teacher myself, so all I can suggest you is that practice is all it takes! A LOT of it!

I've got an other question
Just note me or ask me on formspring www.formspring.me/emiohh and I'll answer it, as soon as possible! Don't be shy I won't bite : D

About this account
This account and my art in general does not follow a certain style. So be aware that concepts, techniques, medias and motives of my artwork differ from piece to piece. However, you may find some kind of 'red thread' in my works, even in abstract ways.

I have to create an art portfolio which reflects myself, but still includes different styles and techniques so I can prove my skills at universities. Well, I still have to practice and train A LOT! This account does mostly track my Improvements and personal achievements in my so called 'artsy life' and helps me to get better with the help of a great community.

I hope this does mostly my experimental way of drawing and painting : D

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 14, 2014, 4:04 AM
  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: The Hanging Tree
Hello hello my sweeties!
I wanted to  make a new journal entry for weeks now, but never really found the time until now. I have some pretty nice topics that I'd like to talk about, because A LOT happened in the past months of my busy life! So I hope you don't bother me sharing some of my latest experiences with you :giggle:


The time in the US


Ah!! Where do I start? I had such a lovely time on my little farm in Maine, it's unbelievable! However, I had some troubles with getting there in the beginning and a really long trip. It all started with me waking up at 1am, just to get my train to Frankfurt airport, where I had to wait another 4 hours for my plane to take off. I was so thrilled and excited, because it was my first flight all alone and then of all things to the US, and everybody knows that they are super strict with people from abroad. So what happened? Yeah they picked me out and double checked me at the security scan in Germany. I nearly cried, because I was so excited and just thinking 'Oh god what are they doing?! They'll arrest me and then I'll never get to the US or home or anything ahhhh'… yeah, totally overreacting I know : D However everything was fine and I could get in my plane without any more troubles.
In Philadelphia I missed my flight to Maine, because of this stupid Imigration check! I nearly cried again. I was tired, all alone in a foreign country, and simply frustrated. However, I called my travel agency and my parents and my host family and everything worked out. Got a new flight % hours later, but I tell you I was so tired I can't remember a single thing from this 2 hour flight, since I fell asleep right after the start.

In Maine I was welcomed by my really lovely and warm host family. They were so nice and kind I had no trouble to get this 'I'm home feeling' and by now I am happy to say, that I have a second family in Maine! The farm was extremely beautiful and had this old and comfy barn flair that you may know from movies. A awesome place to be with 20 horses a lot of chickens, 3 cats and a Labradore who was a little bit hyperactive.

I was especially lucky that I didn't just live at a horse farm, but also with an art family! My 'sister' there, Lydia, is an excellent and incredible fine artist. She paints the most beautiful still lives and portraits that I've seen so far in oil color! If you want to check her stuff: www.facebook.com/LydiaRoseArt?…
Also, the rest of my family was amazing! My mother, Carol, is such a good horse woman, who also developed a whole new riding technique called 'The aspirant Technique'. She reschooled my riding completely and I have to say riding never felt so good! although I couldn't walk probably anymore in the beginning I had the pleasure to ride Gambit, a really goofy Andalusian crossbreed, Sparto, who was really spooky but one of the softest horses I ever sat on, and Sitzke, a really beautiful old Friesian mare, who just had a foal of a month. Riding her was funny, since you always had to look out for the foal. Theo loved to run into his mother while I sat on her back.

I also saw a lot of the beautiful countryside of Maine. The forests with all the rivers and lakes are breathtaking! I also went to the coast once. A really chilly and beautiful piece of nature. And we had an extreme snowstorm at the end of my staying. My flight back home got cancelled twice this day and so I had 2 extra days in the US.

I could go on and on with stories during this really great time, but actually I would have to write a whole novel then. I fell in love with everything and made amazing new friends who I miss dearly. I'm planning on returning next summer to see them all again (:


Back home and the trouble of boredom



Honestly, I have never been so bored in my whole life :rofl: I came back home and everyone of my friends was busy doing something else. It felt like I missed a whole piece of their lives just by being away for 5 weeks. Most of them were at university or working or doing something abroad, as well. So in the beginning I had a lot of family time which was really necessary and tried to find something for me to do. I searched for artsy things, courses for my portfolio or some job or internship, but didn't really find anything in my liking. However, I drew a lot and decided to do something for my health… so I turned out to be pretty sporty, lately. Anyway at some point, I got back together with all my friends which I missed deeply. Although we all stayed in contact via texting or Skype or phone calls, It's always amazing to see them in person again. I mean, I haven't seen some of them for 2 months or even longer. Quite though for me, since my friends are actually really important for me, and I easily get paranoid with the thought of loosing contact… ridiculous… I know : D So I spent a lot of time visiting them wherever they were and I was hardly at home again for 2 weeks or so. Anyway, during the weekends most of them were back in town and we had some legendary party nights :giggle: guess you can imagine.


Christmas and the New Year are rolling in



I don't feel like christmas at all. We hardly have snow, and although it's really cold outside, there is just no real christmas feeling around this year. On top of that I had a rather harsh fight with two of my thought to be closest friends for years. Was rather hurtful, because I haven't heard much of them for the last half year, and now they were blaming me for not showing enough interest in them. I mean: I was hardly in the country?! However, I hope I can sort this out somehow… if not, well, then not. I'm tired of having to be the one to make everything work without getting anything in return.
I'll stay with my whole family at our other house for the christmas days and I'm more than eager to see my whole family with all my aunts, uncles, my cousins, and grandparents again. And on top of that I'll see my sister and her new son. I haven't had the pleasure to meet him, yet!
I guess it's good to get some space from my 'friends' trouble here. I need it. And I'm pretty confident that everything will fall into place again.
I honestly can't wait for 2015 to finally begin. It's going to have a really good start, because I finally got a really cool internship in Munich! I'm going to work with a media company which is working for really big things like Audi, some big german television companies, etc. It's exactly what I'd like to do one day and it's a good opportunity to fill my portfolio. On top of that, the team is great! Really cool, funny and creative people which are totally easy going and relaxed about anything. I'm so tuned to work with them for three months!

Things are a bit twisted right now, but actually it's all good. I had an amazing year which felt like a decade and I made so many great experiences which really helped me grow as a person. I wouldn't want to miss any of this years moments. I'm closer than ever to really know who I am and what I want to be in the future. Right now, I'll try to focus more on myself and my own well-being.

The time has come to make a change and I am welcoming it. I really am.  


Long journal is long haha
Lots of love,

Emily :heart:
