Results

Hey, what's up Internet ?
This monday I scanned the sketches and threw them, slightly edited, into a .zip-file, including some pictures, which Anja Hellwig took. I've completed over 64 of them, during the 3 hour and 20 minute long event, which means that I only had 3 minutes and 42 seconds for each of your screenshots.
Furthermore, I also noticed that the quality of the result was depending on the size and contrast of your screenshot, but all in all I'm pretty glad about all of them.

Killing Time

Hey, how's it going ?
Only a few hours are left until the Saturday Sketch Night starts and I can hardly wait to complete all the great screenshots you gave me. Actually I received 46 pictures until now, however, it's not to late to apply.

I already bought a few new Copics to make sure that I don't run out of pens during this huge event. Fortunately I also received the verification mail from Livestream, which confirmed my channel and removed the 50 slot  limit. Furthermore I talked to one of my fellow photographers, she goes by the name Anjo-Fotografie. She had the great idea to combine my "little studio" with her equipment and borrowed me her soft box and tripod to increase the quality of the stream. She will also help me to help up my mohawk for Saturday, so stay tuned!

Until then you can stare at this flash loop I made:

Unforeseen Consequences

Hello Internet.
Thing are going well, up here in germany. The internship I'm doing for the next two months is keeping me a bit busy, but I'm already practicing with some Copics for the Saturday Sketch Night.
At first I was like
Things are going so well, that I actually got featured in a newspost of the german MMO-web portal buffed.de, which is probably, among others responsible, for over 20 screenshots, which I've collected until now. Furthermore, I was surprised by the detailed mails, rather than the mass of them, because many applicants also wrote a short summary of their characters personality to make it more interesting for me.

I'm wondering, if I actually can handle to draw all of them within two hours, however, I'm minded to give this project some extra hours, since it went so well. I'm definitely looking forward for the next weekend. 

See you sooner than later!

Saturday Sketch Night

Hey, what's up Internet!
This is my new blog as you already noticed. To give it a good headstart I want to invite you to my Saturday Sketch Night.

How can I join in ?
Just send a screenshot of your character to hello@vasburg.com, give me a direct message or mention with a picture attached at @evasburg on Twitter or post a link to your screenshot in the comments of this post.

Where ?
You can watch it live here: http://www.livestream.com/internethooligan
