From left to right: "A warning - city lights - fountain face / ancient mech - gaining superpowers - in the trenches - tempting serpent"
These are great warm - ups.
Check out Lorenz Hideyoshi. He is a big inspiration for this and I love his work.
Also I finished an illustration.
To get better at composition and key-framing, I thought I should start doing more spitpaints. Spitpaints are paintings that are kept under 30 min. There is a group on facebook, that coined the term. I think they are a great practice. Btw it is amazing what some people are able to achieve in that time-frame.
Check out Karel D'Huyvetter's spitpaintings. I can't stop looking at them!
I am working on a new landscape illustration. I am using 3D and overpainting to encrease speed... Getting the background to work is quite tricky this time. I am not sure, if it should stay like that. We will see...
Some studies for the background and the general colors.
Just some of the digital studies I did in the last time.
I also updated my portfolio with new illustrations and concept designs.
I love doing these Warhammer 40 K themed portraits of friends. Here is another one, I finished. It is for the brother of a good friend. Hope you like it :)
I skipped to the part, where Clint reviews my character, but the rest is also super - interesting.
I participated in the character design challange over at "Swatches". It is an art-community created by "MTG"-Artist Clint Cearley. This is my entry: Blade - Mage.
These are the drawings I did on a live-drawing-session on Saturday. 30second gestures, 2min gestures and some longer poses. I feel like I have really gotten better at this over the years. Still some proportion issues here and there, but it was enjoyable to do these. Mainly because of what I learned from the french baroque artists and looking at some great sketches and pencil-draftsmen at instagram.
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.
