I am working on the logo and writing for the packing of Dungeon League. Lets see what the clients say :)
I am currently reciding at my parent's place, but I still wanted to keep up with posting art. So here it goes, some pages from my sketchbook, which is close to being full. :D It always feels great to fill a sketchbook! I am working through "Glen Villpu's Drawing Manual", because I want to improve those drawing skills. I am way less happier with them, than with my painting . Not that my painting abilities are very good, I just feel like I have to work on my drawing skills way more. Drawing boxes and making them flow through space is one of the exercises in the book. More and more I feel that a strong grasp of perspective is essential for good drawings. So I guess I will have to brush up on that subject soon too.
On a different note: I have been accepted into a freelancer-net-pool which is called "Colorscale Design". The idea is that we can offer a huge spectrum of design-knowledge as a team and help people to realize their visions. Its pretty exciting and I can't wait for the first projects to start.
And even more personal: my pregnant girlfriend went to the doctor today and confirmed that everything is good and healthy with our little daughter-to-come. Yes, I am going to be a dad. This is by the most exciting thing happening in my life so far and to be honest it can be scary at times. But I am sure everything will be fine.
That's it for now. Here a small video for your enjoyment by the great Ryan Lang:

some warm up skull studies
sketches for the 4th assignment for the Jason Seiler course
WIP painting for the same course
Logo designs for "Dungeon League"
Color studies, I think I really learned something from this :)
30min Spitpainting - The pink scyscraper
Lines by Lena Kuschke
Colors by me
At first I thought about having a subsurface scattering effect in her wing, but in the end that would be distracting and so I left it out.
here's the caricature class' 3rd assignment, still WIP but almost finished. We got the sketch from Jason and the goal was to do a greyscale render in PS and really push it. I didn't desaturate the ref but left it in color so I could practice seeing values in colors at the same time.
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.
