it seems, I've been having a registration here for quite some time now, but I've never visitted, nor have posted anything.
Today I've been going through some of the inspirational stuff here, and in the end I decided to post some of my own stuff...
I'll try to post my according to the time they were created at
this one I did quite some time ago. 3 years maybe. Lacked the anatomy knowledge at the time, so I used a reference photo.
another one done using reference at the time. The Stalker movie.
concentrated on the mech for this one. Lacked the environmental drawing skills back then... and still do in my oppinion
a more latter piece. probably a year ago.
this one was quite fascinating actually. A friend of mine and I had this discission 'bout future machines. We actually went on brainstorming that future machines might actually be muscule driven steel skeletons. For pure efficiency's sake.
It gave me the idea to draw some of those future machines (I actually did just this one but I have some other ideas too) - here's a freighter hawling chassy
Just an environment tut
Just some sketches I did for a story. Might do them some time as real illustration... not shure though - mostly tested extreme perspectives.
dass me did it in front of the mirror. Actually I kinda overdid the meanacing look -
That last piece is really cool. Good work man.
one of my favourite. The thorough preliminary work on the character really paid off in the end in my oppinion
I've been really into old italian masters lately. They seem to have these beautiful architectural detais all over the paintings... love 'em
as for the piece itself - I was quite depressed this one day... Had the feeling of just literally pulling the weight in vain - so I just sketched it. It came out as a nice sketch, and lately I did it as a full illustration.
I really like your use of perspective on later pieces, it's very dynamic. And you can paint digital really good.
Insert very insightful quotes here ...
- get back to work!
It's a T-shirt design for a friend of mine. It should have been just a line sketch originally, but it gradually grew into this. I'm not quite good at comix style coloring, so I used the opportunity to do some exploring. Not quite happy with the result but I'm calling it finished - I could continue refining it forever, but I'm really fed up with this design already. Time for something new.
besides - the guy loves it, and in the end - it's all about fun... right?! ughhhh
Holy moly! This is good stuff! That matte painting is really nice! I like your artistic stylistic stuff!
and I've got to say I really like this one: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1244044102
well, add more stuff now!
never tried manga before, but I guess it's quite fun to draw anyway
sooooo... It's become quite a series of manga drawings now. I'm kindda surprised manga proved to be so easy to draw, once one got hold of the basic rules, and it's a quick fun too.
Posting just some of the pics here.
The idea for this one is to become a sort of a comix for a T-shirt. Here are some of the elements, and a preliminary general composition

a speed I did for the splash-page of an upcoming air-soft game
and yet another speed. The spaceship is based on a study for freehand drawing of complex shapes. Got inspired by Daniel Simon...

album cover for a band
some general perspective studies
played around with a free 3d package...
my first try at matte-painting... hm...
just some quickie.
woa'... it's been a while since my last post...
it's just that I recently found this wonderful medium, called PAPER and I also discovered these... absolutely... BRILLIANT tools, called Copic markers. Honestly - I haven't had this much fun drawing since... I don't know when
It's just pure fun to sit in the park and quickly throw in sketch after sketch, blocking in shapes on the fly... love it
so as you might guess - my wacom's gathered quite a bit of dust recently
anyway - here's a piece I did for the cover of a great new e-zeen featuring "marginal fictional" authors. It's a project I hope to see having future development since the guy doing it manages to find exceptional young authors, that have... well... ideas, that are ... interesting.
In my previous post i'm showing one of my preliminary sketches for this project. Colour-wise it's actually my favourite. But anyway it did't make it to the finals.
It is based on a story from the e-zeen that takes place in St Louis. Hence the arch
The piece shown here lacks definition and detail in the forward plan, it's compositionally flawed, but I did it from the beginning having in mind that it was going to be cropped and surrounded by texts, headers, commercials'n'stuf - a regular tabloid-style cover.
a sketch for a future tattoo
another new venture... learning to do Japanese style tattoo dragons. Not an easy thing - quite a bit of rules.
here's a sample
