This is a new personal concept with a bit more of a story behind. I really wanted to polish this one as an establisher shot. But still I wanted to keep the amount of time spent under 2 'usual' working days.

In the near future, many prints will be available at:

First ipad sketch

I received the Wacom Bamboo Stylus today for my ipad and I had to paint something on it. This is a study of a Leroy Grannis photography. It shows a depression-era delivery truck turned sixties surf habitat. About 2 hrs with procreate on the ipad and 5 min photoshop

My San Francisco Girl

After the Anders Zorn studies I decided to make a 'study' of my girl:) It is based on a photo, which was shot in San Fran a while ago, but the light coming from the back looked pretty good.
I used a hard round brush, soft round brush, some texture brushes, the smudge tool, highpass for sharpening the hair, a slight grain on top, and the brushes set to color dodge for the ears, where the light is shining through;) Took me a couple of hours with no color picking or tracing the real photo. Let me know what you think!

Anders Zorn Study 02

Ok, this one was stress! The skintones in the face were much harder to read. Everytime I had to increase the saturation after a couple of brushstrokes...always too flat and too grey...This one was also started at lunchtime a while ago and now I finished it at home. Took me twice the time of the first study :(

Anders Zorn Study 01

Started at lunch time 30 min with focus on colors and shapes and I decided to finish the sketch to really 'understand' the skintones. An additional hour of detailing went into it. Of course no color picking or tracing!

Pokerstars Advertisement

Here is something different I have done freelance a few months ago for PIXOMONDO. I was asked to do Printstill Compositing/Retouching for 3 stills included in the campaign. The job was to bring together all the different pieces (photo, 3d, background etc.), which were delivered by different agencies, and to polish it.

So sad

This is a personal artwork. Started with a black and white sketch as before and detailed it a couple of hours. I used some post effects like color grain etc. to make it more 'realistically'
This is heavily influenced by the characters of curiousart over at cghub. Same topic of a space knight.

Under Fire

This is a personal mood sketch. For me it is important to stay flexible, versatile and quick in what I'm doing as a concept artist. That's why I don't want to focus too much in one direction, like characters, environments, tech etc...Concept Art / Illustration is already very focused in the game industry. Therefore I want to show my diversity in styles and topics. And I'm working hard to be good in all disciplines HAHA. It took me about 8 hours including the compositional sketches. Hope you like it!

Beer in the sun - Study

This is my attempt to make a digital still life as a study. I used a reference photo HERE but of course there was no tracing and no color picking. Otherwise the study is useless. Global illumination was freaking out with the red aluminum buds. I mainly used a simple round brush with soft and hard edge and the lasso tool.

Story: Two special edition buds standing in front of the window in my working room at home. Bought in Las Vegas for 10 bucks each I think. And our cats left many marks of their noses everywhere on the window.
