Mavanas's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I created this account at first to learn from all the amazing artists and tutorials here and did not intend to upload any art. But now I use it to track my progression of skills and to get feedback and tips from this great community.

I really want to dedicate more time to this passion, but since I've other hobbies as well my production is not that great and It may take some time for me to add to my gallery.

Feel free to make suggerstions on how to improve my art - that is always welcome.


Lipking study
Finished piece. Not as good as the master's original, but I had a lot of fun drawing it :) Learned a lot, especially about mixing colours. Original reference from Jeremy Lipking. You can see the progress in my scrapbook-gallery.
WIP nude oil on canvas
Trying a new format: 20x20cm... small but a lot of fun and I don't get discouraged by the sheer size of the canvas xD. I like the progress so far. Original reference by Jeremy Lipking:…

I like this amazing artist very much! You should definetly check out his instagram page (#lipking).
Trying out a new technique ( new for me at least :) ) with oil colours and real line seed oil this time. Working the colour while everything is still wet is something new but a lot of fun so far! The other portrait had a chemical accelerator instead of oil and the colour dryed much faster. This time it remains wet and workable for a week! Got the underlying done with a light turquoise and now progressing with the flesh. Lets see where this goes!!
Guardian (Rolf)
Done finally! Or at least I feel an urge to start something new, possibile something without fur 😂 Pencil & carcoal, in about seven hours.
