Right now I'm in my lazy, vacation mood, slurping tea and still asking me one question whenever I check my DA feeds:

How the hell can you produce one masterpiece after another in such short times?
How can you draw or paint that fast that you still manage to produce great artworks?

Usually I wouldn't claim that a fast artist is a good artist. But I can't restist comparing myself to others and it's kinda confusing, amazing and frustrating at the same time to realize that other artists can create more and better pictures in only a few days while I already need a phase to put a freaking piece of paper in my hand, sacrifice a good portion of time to create an artwork that mostly sucks in the end (even though I tried hard). 

Then I think it must be some kind of education. Maybe the artists producing fast AND well have studied art in colleges or universities, thus have also learned to work fast. Is that so? In my case, as you can tell, I never had the opportunity to visit a college or an university.

If it just was for self pity I would't post this journal. But I keep asking me this over and over again and maybe YOU can give me a good, reasonable answer. In that case: Thank you in advance!

Now, back to my vacation which will hopefully bring SOME creative stuff. After all, I have more time now.

Vacation at last by Tabascofanatikerin
Vacation at last
Yup, another "Puzzle Agent" fanart.
I just was in the mood for two: A regular one and one "what if" scenario in a wordless comic strip.

This one is actually about the sequel, "Puzzle Agent 2".
If you have to play it yet better don't get spoiled now.
It's not the most relevant part of the story but: FBI Agent Nelson Tethers, an expert and fan of solving puzzles, gets to know Malkorka Teterdottir, a woman living in Scoggings, Minnesota (where the crime plot takes place). Malkorka obviously also digs puzzles and in the game it's slightly pointed out that Tethers finds her...pretty likeable because of that.

I just thought how cool it would be if Tethers, after solving the whole case in the end and finally starting his vacation (which he actually used first to finally solve the case from the first game), visited Malkorka for playing the board games with her he amazedly notices in her home. And who knows what that leads to? ;)

Forgive my cheesiness here but once and a whole it's okay to create things like these as long as it's more of a subtle nature (at least that's how I feel).
I'm quite happy with the result even though it's suppoused to be a quick fanart. I also tried hard to redraw Graham Annable's style as good as I can.

Done with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

Puzzle Agent by Tabascofanatikerin
Puzzle Agent
This is my fanart about the adventure/puzzle PC game "Puzzle Agent". I was given the game already a few years ago but only played it recently - and immediately played the sequel afterwards, too. And now I think that another sequel would be cool. This fanart is mostly about the first game.

It's a fun game by Telltale Games including sketchy but unique and amusing graphics, an atmosphearic soundtrack, a silly crime plot and lots of puzzles to solve - some easy, some pretty tricky.

Because I like the game and started browsking through other artworks by Graham Annable - basically the game's creator - I thought that I could do a fanart.

Done with pencil, watercolours, acrylics and Adobe Illustrator.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on DeviantArt since August 17th 2005, when I was 20 years old. So it's been pretty much 10 years since I became a member.

2. What does your username mean?
It means "huge fan of tabasco" (yes, the hot sauce). Although I enjoy spicy dishes and tabasco, the story behind it was a different one: As I was looking for a new regular nickname, I was told by my older sister that her husband used to be given mean names because of his black hair and slightly dark skin. Like "Indian" or "Tabasco fanatic". The last one strangely inspired me because it sounded so random and I stopped searching. ;)

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Capable of improvement.

4. Are you left or right handed?
I am right handed.

5. What was your first deviation?
It was the drawing "And it goes on...", uploaded on August 17th 2005. It's about the pain caused by terrible, traumatic memories of Holocaust survivors.

And it goes on... by Tabascofanatikerin

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
I enjoy traditional art the most because I'm also more used to it. When it comes to motifs, I am torn apart. I love doing fanarts but also know that original art is at least important.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital paintings. It's incredible what others can do with it. And I'm pretty much at the beginning because it took long until I had my own drawing tablet. After that, creating proper animations would be awesome.

8. What was your first favourite?
It's the fantastic horror movie artwork "Horror Movies 2" by my good friend :iconzwerg-im-bikini:. She also was the one who drew my attention to DeviantArt.

Horror Movies 2 by Zwerg-im-Bikini

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I think it doesn't depend on the media. I believe I fave whatever inspires me the most ("I wanna draw/paint like THIS!!!") or whatever is a great representation of my interests and characteristics. Years ago I used to fave almost whatever impressed me but meanwhile I act more selectively.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
That would be :iconzwerg-im-bikini:. She brought me to DeviantArt, thus has stuck with me the longest here. She also has inspired me the most with her wide range of skills and generally great artworks. And she's one of the very few DA friends that I know personally :)

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Ooh, not easy...maybe :icongaucelm: because he's not only very talented but also seems to be a very nice, interesting guy hanging out with.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
As I mentioned: my friend :iconzwerg-im-bikini: showed me DeviantArt in the first place and has kept inspiring me there.
But other than that there's no other certain DA member that has impacted my life this much (wether in a good or bad way). Other members, watched by me or not, have given me inspirations and advices here and there, communicated with me. So: normal, peaceful community life, nothing intensive.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I love drawing with coloured pencils and painting with water colours. I think this is where I'm best at. And working with these tools is also a bit relaxing. The artworks I'm most satisfied with were mostly done with these dools.
Also I love to work with Adobe Photoshop, especially for colorizing drawings.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
If you mean a place where I draw or paint then I say that there's no "favourite" place, I always create art at home in my room at my desk.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
There's no such thing but it always has made me especially happy whenever lots of people faved and commented an artwork of mine. It's very motivating.

Lloyd and Chloe (Cartoon Fanart) by Tabascofanatikerin
Lloyd and Chloe (Cartoon Fanart)
This is an early fanart about the starting web cartoon series "Lloyd".
Right now it only has a pilote episode so far but I still did a little drawing of the main character Lloyd (a detective cat who solves cases, drinks booze a lot and seems to fail at dates) and his secretary Chloe (the other cat in the blue dress).

You can see the pilote episode here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoSJTP…

Lloyd and Chloe are actually pets of Brad Jones, also known as the Cinema Snob (an internet reviewer who mostly reviews horror movies and bad old movies of different kinds). I'm a fan of Jones and his works and I'm looking forward to how the cartoon will develope.

Drawn with pencil and coloured pencils.
