Your sketches are quite nice, I like quick gesture drawings -they're really hard to do well. These turned out great!

You have captured the movement of the boats and the breeze in a few simple lines - wonderful

// UPDATES //

So this is where I went to walk about -- it came out to be slow 10 km walk in 3,5 hours. How come I walk and talk that much instead of sketching ;-) "... excuse me, could you please take a photo of me and my wife. I'd LOVE to be one holiday picture with here together!" -- "Yes, sure ..."

detailed

As I sat down in inch below the upper right corner of the route, I came to talk with a film-producer, who just set there and watched the German Champion Champions on sailing on the other shore of the Außenalster. He asked me if I would be into sailing, and if I'd know, that there would be the "crème de la crème" [European, World and Olympic Champions] competing ... no, but thank you ... and we kept talking ... I didn't know, why I was driven to WALK all the way downtown to just stop in THIS peculiar place first to start sketching --- the only wooden planks four meters wide to sit next to him at the curly waterside. Well I was about to get to know: "So do you earn your livings with this? You should do storyboarding ... " so that's why a magic hand tugged me here ;-) .. details .. on request, as there have been so many obstacles, that stood in between this meeting and me ;-)

Image
... more sailing boats ...

Image
.. more than just sailing boats ...

Image
.. crappy drawings from four different places along the road: University Library / Arts Department [I didn't know it would be in there, but I was could), fastfood restaurant, Japanese Garden at "Planten un Bloomen" (a huge and beautiful park) ... everything moved so fast this super-sunny day ;)

Thank-you-post .. see here ;-)

jaz999 - thank you, I can agree on you saying "they're really hard to do well" ;)

alissa -- thank you, too. Yes the breeze was wonderful. The "Binnenalster" is know for gusty or better say "fast changin winds" in direction and strength.

marcello --- such nice words from you again! It was a poetical moment, indeed ;)

Marty ---- ;-) thank you Marty-San! [tin-toon ?? hm,....]

gustavo ----- you are getting there? Thank you. You are there ;-)

I really love the style. What size were you drawing these at, cause they look TINY. And what kind of pen did you use, because I love that line?

-- gustavo : it was kind of strange. I really felt in and out of the world.

-- Donal : they where tiny about one or one and a half inch "tall". I used a Pilot G-Tec-C4. It has a 0.4 mm nib. And is my favorite one, to sketch on very hard and white/silky sketchbookpages. Thanks for the compliment.

-- Olga / olkazavr : .. see, that's why I loved to draw them too: I -- MISS -- THE -- OCEAN !!! :lol:

-- Kai / klecks : thank you, waiting to see some new sketches on your newly "invented" blog :)

Overall, so good to so see so many Crawlers around Germany this time!!
