Why Pikomi?
3 or 4 years ago I saw a couple of her drawings in a book shop in Berlin - and loved them. I bought the artbook - but it remained a dream until now to have at least one of her paintings as a print for my living room - I already have a fitting antique frame - it would look lovely <3


Tracing VS. References - think about!

Say hello to Tracing, Reference and Free-hand by Okami-Haru

Someone's found his coat there, too?

Battle of Nations 2013 - I was there :)

Things came into my way...



Yay, my weekend was stressful but yet awesome :>

I visited the city of Leipzig in Saxony, Germany last weekend in order to see the reenactment of the Battle of the Nations which took place in October 1813. So it was the 200-year jubilee of this battle. Therefor it was performed by 6.000 reenactors from 26 countries and with 250 participating horses, over 50 heavy artillery guns and 35.000 visitors.
Leipzig indeed is a very beautiful town and the battle monument (which was built 100 years later to remember this giant battle) is really huge.
Together with my friends I visited the city Halle where people I know live. They suffered hard from the flood this year and so their house, which lies only a couple meters away from the river Saale, was only half-rebuilt. But they managed to welcome us more than friendly and I felt very comfortable at their place.
We managed to see the famous exhibition of Yadegar Asisi, that shows a 3-dimensional Panorama of the city of Leipzig during the battle.
Yap, we had to wait for a loooong time to get in, but this was really worth it.

So, why do I tell ya all tis things? Because a dear friend of mine was kind and lend me a proper camera to take photos. And so I tried my luck at the battlefield. It was really hard because there were thousands of people and I stood in the second row - so many of the pictures are crap.
But I hope some of them will be good enough as painting references ;)

Please understand that I will need some time to sort them and to adjust the contrasts. I will need even more time to name them properly, because I need to identify the military name and type correctly. And, there is also a bunch of photos from the stallion parade - I only managed to upload the half of them yet. Of course I'll give you a tiny sneak preview ;)

I hope you like my pictures and that they're a good help for drawing horses and riders ;)


Hallo zusammen,

mein Wochenende war stressig, aber extrem cool. Ich war mit Freunden zusammen in Leipzig, um mir das Reenactment der Völkerschlacht
</a> anzuschauen. Die Schlacht wurde mithilfe von 6.000 Reenactorn aus 26 verschiedenen Ländern (ich habe sogar Landsmänner von mir getroffen und mit ihnen gequatscht), 250 Pferden und  50 Geschützen dargestellt. 35.000 Zuschauer hatten sich um das Feld in Markkleeberg bei Leipzig versammelt.
Leipzig ist eine wirklich schöne Stadt und das Völkerschlachtdenkmal, welches 100 Jahre später erbaut worden ist, ist in der Tat gigantisch.
Zusammen mit Freunden habe ich Bekannte in Halle besucht, die sehr durch die Flut gelitten hatten. Und dennoch haben sie uns ein schönes, temporäres Heim bereitet in dem ich mich stets wohlgefühlt habe.
Wir hatten es sogar geschafft, in die berühmte Asisi-Ausstellung zu kommen, um uns das Panorama der Stadt während der Kämpfe anzuschauen. Natürlich haben wir uns die Beine in den Bauch gestanden, um auf die Aussichtsplattform zu kommen, aber das war das Warten wert.

Warum erzähle ich euch das alles? Weil ein Freund so nett war und mir seine Kamera geliehen hatte, mit der ich dann mein Glück versuchen durfte. Leider  sind die Fotos in keiner Top-Qualität (nun, ich bin ja auch kein Fotograf und habe kein Händchen dafür), was auch daran liegt, dass wirklich viele Bescher da waren und ich in zweiter Reihe stand - so musste ich durch Ellenbogen und aneinandergereihte Köpfe fotografieren, was eine Herausforderung ist, wenn man 4 Stunden nur auf einer Stelle steht ;)
Ich hoffe dennoch, die Fotos werden gut genug als Zeichenvorlagen sein.

Bitte bedenkt aber, dass ich eine gewisse Zeit brauche, um die Kontraste und Schärfen nachzujustieren und vor allem auch, um die Bilder richtig zu benennen. Mein Chef würde mir den Hals umdrehen, wenn ich euch einen französischen Hussar als österreichischen Dragoner verkaufen würde ;)
Außerdem warten noch Fotos der Hengstparade darauf, hochgeladen zu werden.

Ich lasse euch aber nicht ohne Vorschau ;)

Ich hoffe, meine Bilder erfülle wenigstens ein wenig ihren Zweck.
Liebe Grüße aus Berlin ;)
