Hi guys, today I wanted to introduce you to Aki and his tiny big sister Nuru. These two unlikely siblings will go on a long journey to safe their rain forest nation from the Serpent´s life draining powers and the forest spirits will guide them on their way through the thick twilight forest. I added a step by step break down to give you a glimpse into my process. Hope you enjoy the character illustration. :)
A hot sunny day, a deep lush forest and a rare elusive questing beast that lives among the trees. Hope you enjoy! This artwork is available as a print on Society6, Inprnt and DeviantArt.
Even hell hounds want a belly rub sometimes. Hope you enjoy this illustration. :)
So I went through my files yesterday looking for something and stumbled over an old sketch. Kinda felt inspired so I decided to give it a bit of a makeover and share it. Hope you like it!
At the edge of a small town in a deep dark forest are the three farms owned by three very different Families. The first one is almost abandoned, since no one wanted to take on the family business of growing crops. The only one left is old Ms. Meier who due to her age can barely keep the farm running and has a serious love for cats. The second one is owned by the Bricks Brothers who think everything bigger is better and treat everything on the farm with this principal in mind. And the third one houses a…
Some more feet studies.
I hope you guys are doing well! Today I want to share some eye studies based on a cast and some of last Saturday’ s life drawing sketches created and Syn Studios biweekly life drawing session.
Today I want to share some concept art we created as part of a fun team assignment at Syn Studio Montreal. Everyone of us had to work on a mech of one of four cryptids that needed to be created with the same restrictions in mind. My cryptid was the Kraken ;) Below the final concept art as well as some original scribbles from my sketchbook.
Finally I got a chance to finish up this piece. I hope you enjoy it. It´s based on a sketch I´ve posted a while back. Now that I´m settled down in Montreal I got around finalizing it. I really enjoy the broad lion face so I decided to deviate from the original Manticore design.
Finally I got to finish one of my own Illustrations again and it has been quite some time since I last worked on an Asian dragon. So here we go. :) This one was a lot of fun to work on. I challenged myself to work with saturation to create contrast instead of color contrast. So the entire picture is done in tones from yellow to red and the shadow areas are simply lower in saturation. At the beginning I had a different design for the horns but found them rather boring and decided to go with ram horns instead….
Hey everyone, I have no idea what the weather looks like at your place atm but I hope it´s a bit cooler as it is here in Germany! I´ve been finishing up the summer semester and the week of exam till yesterday and I think when it has around 32°C/90°F inside your apartment and you still think it´s so refreshingly cool in comparison to the outside, it´s definitely way too hot for my taste. :D So now that I´m done with my tests and university projects time to share some art! This is my entry for the Heroes of the…
I have always found the idea strange that the northern water horse aka kelpie is supposed to look like an actual horse. Everyone who has crossed a river on horseback knows they can swim but they aren´t the best swimmers in the world and horses hate walking through muddy areas where their thin legs sink deep into the ground. I like the idea of him being a real aquatic predator, webbing between his clawed hands and feet, covered with scales and using his strong fish like tale to propel himself through the water like a crocodile in search for prey….
Today I want to share my newest illustration Griffin Mom with you. Remember if you ever find a huge nest with big blue eggs, don´t just walk up on it. Momy might be just around the corner. ;) Hope you like it! Below I added some steps for you, so you can take a closer look at my work in progress.
Time to Head South – Creature Concept
Just did another speed painting. This one was solely about the colors. :)
So here is the finished artwork, hope you like it! :) I have decided to go without the two horsemen because I wanted the artwork to be emptier and put focused on the complete silence of the moment when this creeping creature actually takes shape out of the dense fog just to vanish into it moments later without making any sound.
This one was based on a free super fast skribble I did a view days back. I named it Equal Power – hope you like it. ;)
So this is my new Illustration. I leave it to your imagination why this grey old beast and the little song birds are meeting at the moss covered trees. I just noticed that I havent´t worked on a dragon for a while and decided to finish up this one. :)
