Trying something new: http://texahol.blogspot.de/2013/05/some-more-thoughts-about-thinkingabout.html
a perspective study about unparallel planes
Some pics from work
Worked some more on the Van Dyck study. I tried a lot of different brushes, but ended up using the good old Hard Round Size Transfer
This is Dribbli Ironlegs, when he gets fouled the other player has to check if he is injured ^^
I attended a podium - discussion about the topic: Cybernetics and human ethics. It was really interesting. One of the guests (Sefan Greiner) had a magnet implanted in his ring-finger that vibrated when there was a strong electric radiation. In a way he had one sense more than a normal human being.
Below are all the guest and the hosts (and a long nosed listener).
Dungeon League Card Art
Finally I have something to show from the card-game-project I am currently working on, on the side. The name is "Dungeon League" and here is the link: http://dungeon-league.com/
It is a mix of a card - game (duh), football and a good portion of fantasy. You choose your team-members from a great range of different characters. Each character has unique abilities, for instance: Tarantorla, the spider - goal - keeper has 2 chances to hold a penalty shot. It is a really smart designed game, I am always excited to see the new designs by Lena and Julius Kuschke.
The line-art is done by Lena Kuschke.
My job is to add color and texures. I have a lot of creative freedom and it's a lot of fun to work on the cards.
Below are the first 7 finished characters, more to show soon.
The Dark Knight
Emblem of 2. FC Nurnenberg
And a Van Dyck study I did for the next character card
Hey there, I am back from the holidays.
I had an awesome time, saw my family and friends and took some time to draw in my sketchbook.
I hope you like what you see.
I learned a lot from doing studies of great illustrator's work like the 1st face and the guy seen from back. The reason why some of it is doubled is that a friend of mine Anne Pogoda http://darktownart.carbonmade.com/ (check out her stuff, it is great) gave me the tip to draw studies twice (or more). Once from reference and then once from memory. It is supposed to help solidifying the information in your BRAIN. It felt weird at first, because I had the feeling that no matter how good my drawing from memory would be, it will never be as good as the one from reference. So it sorta feels like you can't "win". But then when I really had to think about what to draw in order to bring at as close to the 1st one as I could, I had the feeling that I understood it better. Also I tend to pay more attention to the study, when I know I have to draw it again later.
All in all there are mostly studies and some sketches for illustrations I plan to do in the future. The last one is one of the four horsemen. The drawing is still WIP.
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
