Digital stuff

Here we go, painting in Photoshop I think I got a better feeling for painting digital after all. I love to paint with oils and as our teachers always say: "If you draw traditionally it will help you to draw digitally and the other way around." 


 I found my love for designing Robots I think, still I have to work on my texture skills and the way how Robots actually move and feel, but the first steps where good. So I will go on and work on it, what else can I do ^^

Jeremy Lipking master copy

Here is my approache on an Jeremy Lipking master copy, I put up the comparison and the final painting. I am kind of happy with it after all, there are still some problems with my color and the technic. In this painting it was important for me, to match the colors and the feeling of the painting and I think I succeeded better than before in my oil painting skills. Still a lot of work to do, but I finaly got better in mixing the colors I want instead of experementing all the time on the canvas ^^.

Nemo Comic

Here is my "Little Nemo in Spaceland" Comic I did for the visual narrative class at TAD. Took me a while to ink everything out, especially the dark areas, but after all it was worth it, I am very happy with it.

pen and ink

pen and ink work for my final reviews, a lot of fun got inspired by moebius. I love to work in pen and ink but the next challenge will be to add a little bit more color to my work ^^

Tried to use watercolor properly, I think it is a good start but I am not completely satisfied with it. Some colors are missing and next time I will handle the medium more fluid I think, but after all i am happy with the outcome.

Go forward in oil

Here we have a fechin copy done in oil. It was more fun than challenging but the learning process is always interesting, TAD forces you to keep up and take new goals and thats amazing .

The earlier head study now in color, done with the Zorn palette ( vermillion red, yellow ochre, titanium white and ivory black).
