A good day!

Oooh yeah!!! "I have EXCERSIIIISED the DEMONS!!! Happy day! WOOP WOOP!

Woo... ehm, sorry. But it IS a happy day, because ladies and gentlemen, my kickstarter award for
"Master of Anatomy book 2&3" campaign is finally here, and it looks AMAZING! A lot of controversy has gone into this campaign after the creators hit a snag with the e-books awards (which I also initially applied for), but all in all, this is the next best thing.

I haven't had the time to look through the books extensively, but from what I've seen it looks really good, from all the different artists participation, to the character designs themselves. One of the con's was the thickness of the paper, some said it was quit thin, so you saw the drawings through the pages, although this is true, but personally, it doesn't really bother me so much.

In the end, I'm superhappy that I got to contribute to this campaign, with an awesome payback! If you want to check out the kickstarter, you can see it HERE.

No if you'll excuse me, I need some private time with my books!:P

Chris Oatley and the awesome academy!

So I joined the Oatley Academy a couple of weeks ago, and I'm SUPER excited! Woop Woop!

If some of you aren't familiar with it, its an online school for artists who wants to pursue Concept Art, Comics, Illustration and other branches within Digital Arts developed by the awesome Chris Oatley. I found out about the school, from my friend Kenneth (you can check his blog here ) last year, but I wanted to wait a little before trying it out. 

I've only been part of the school for two weeks, but already feel the warmth and support of the community, both from the other artists and the admins and teachers!

I'm doing the "Self taught course", this way I can still work on my other projects and also do the course at my own pace. 

I always wanted to delve more into the world of concept art and painting in Photoshop, and can't WAIT  for you guys to join me in this exiting new journey!

Here is a small still life which I worked on, in a "Lets Draw Together" session over skype!

More to come soon!

Beatboard panel, Obscurum

So for a while now, I've been working on my shortfilm (right now, as much as I can), Obscurum.

A film about overcoming fears and friendship.

I recently started working on the beat board for the film, I just wanted to show you guys a WIP. The progress is slow, but I'm SUPER HAPPY that its moving forward.

Hope you like it!:)

Rise of the Tomb Raider

"I HATE tombs"
- Lara Croft

I feel I'm getting more comfortable with the brush pen and also less sloppy. There are some places where I could tighten the drawing up a bit more (anatomically and technically) but all in all, I'm happy with the sketch. 


"I love the smell of burned fuel in the morning"
- Trip, Steampunk Mechanic

Dynamic posing 1

I saw a tutorial about Dynamic posing, from TheBoxofficeArtist on youtube. If you'r interested, check it out here. I felt quite inspired, and wanted to do some of my own!

I loved doing them they may not be perfect, but they are quick and fun to do! And dynamic posing is something I really lack in my sketches. I will definitily do more of these in the near future!

Character study 19

Morning character study sketches. I love doodling these. The hardest part for me is coming up with new design ideas, and these really helps freeing your mind against the ol' artist block!:) 

It also helps experimenting with shapes

Sunday, August 7, 2016

Girl with a bat. Not much thought behind the contrast, but I tried to use the brush pen in a more minimalistic way, also trying to create contrast between black & white.

I always loved the brush pen, it's fluid and creates great line contrasts. But since it's so fluid, I always went overboard with it, be it using to much black until it obscured much of the details or the shape itself. 

So I tried to pull back and put the black where it counted more, and I like the result very much!:)

Time lord

Time lord, Augustus Watch. A time travelling thief from another dimension. His age is unknown, which also includes his origin.  Maybe he's as old as TIME ITSELF!:O

Anyway, I just wanted to expand on one of my characters which I did in a character study sketch. 
More sketches coming soon! I haven't been so good at updating lately, it's more because I had to priorities some other projects. 

But I'm back now, and will update something ever day (a huge task, but I will DO IT!:)
