I spent a couple of hours with a friend in the Museum today, to study drapery. Unfortunately a large part of the exhibition is stored away, but we found some nice statues.
I have been really inspired by artists like Yun Ling, who does studies and entire paintings without using textured brushes. So here is my sketch of a plastic brain, only with the hard round brush.
After some back and forth and doing other illustrations first, I finally finished this painting. I learned a lot from it and I can't wait to keep learning with the next one.
I need to get better at anatomy. So here I am, learning more about the hand-bones.
A 30 min color study.
This is a new illustration, that I started. Using 3D after I did a thumbnail sketch. Next I will fiddle with colors and textures.
Another illustration, that I reckon almost finished.
A still-life study from today. I wanted to learn more about subtle color-variations. So I painted something white.
I am trying to involve 3D more into my workflow. Here is the result. This was actually done as a test for a client.
Thanks to the Artcore Germany facebook-group and my friend Nadin Lüdicke for some great feedback.
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.
