Ice Canyon

Check out my latest painting. This time it’s a futuristic one. Painting ice helps with the temperatures outside, too.

The heavy armored tunnel squad, commanded by the experienced dragon slayer Broutgrok Redbrew, is fighting an enormous beast in one of their tunnels.

Shrine In The Woods

Ehrendil enjoyed the light chill that the rain had left behind. It didn’t rain much here in the woods, just enough to bring out the heavy forest air that he loved more than anything.

Goblin Farm

Gligtel looked around. The destruction was all around them. The whole farm building was burned down, and the fields were completely destroyed. Only the silo tower was left.

Goblin Blacksmith

Gavif let the hammer crush onto the red hot piece of metal. Although she and Clobs were taking turns in this task, it was still very exhausting.

Goblin Brewery

“Why do we have to guard this place?”, Jenva muttered to Wak, who was standing next to him in front of the massive iron door in the hills. Places like this were common here in Ikix, as the vast hill land offered plenty of opportunities for hidden cellars and catacombs.

Goblin Observatory

“What’s he still doing up there?”, Gyrd asked, looking up to the slim platform where master Vanik was sitting for hours now, staring through the huge telescope and scribbling some notes every now and then.

Cavern Gemstone

I did this painting in a color-first approach, skipping the grayscale painting that I usually would do first to get my values right. It’s fun to try out different techniques.

Back With A New Painting

“Why do we have to guard this place?”, Jenva muttered to Wak, who was standing next to him in front of the massive iron door in the hills. Places like this were common here in Ikix, as the vast hill land offered plenty of opportunities for hidden cellars and catacombs.

Landscape Study: Cherry Tree

I am doing a set of landscape studies at the moment. While these should be quick studies, I really liked this one and spent a little more time on it to bring it to a higher level of finish.

WoW Fanart: Orc Painting

As I don’t have any time left to play World of Warcraft, one of my all-time favourite games, I took the time to practice my digital painting skills with a bit of fan art :-)

Inktober 2016: Days 12-18

After a good 18 days of Inktober drawings I had to stop early due to my CGMA class starting again. It was really fun and I can’t wait for next year.

Animals And Grumpy Guys

The last few weeks have been really busy with drawings, working on my homepage backend, and life. Unfortunately, I can’t show most of the drawings I did over the last few weeks just yet.

CGMA Homework

It was a very busy week, so my sketchbook didn’t see me at all. I can show you some plant sketches that I did for my CGMA class though. Those were done in Photoshop.

Spring and Monsters

I actually did find some time to draw into my sketchbook this week. The first drawing was done in the park.

Studying Blacksmith Tools

This week was very heavy with drawing / designing digitally, so my sketchbook didn’t see me very often. I did some shape studies of old blacksmith tools though.

Studying Ships

This week was all about doing some design decisions on the main shapes of my ship for the ArtStation challenge.

ArtStation Challenge: The Journey

Last week, I decided to join the ArtStation challenge “The Journey”. I was already drawing a concept of a ship that I am now going to develop even further for this challenge.

Playing with pigmented ink

Last weekend I got myself some pigmented ink. I just bought a small bottle of Cyan Blue Pigmented Ink by Rohrer & Klingner to try it out.

Hands and monsters

This week was really stuffed with homework from my CGMA class. Because most of this is done digitally, there is not a lot in my sketchbook this week.

Cute little robot

As a follow-up on my last Sketchbook Sunday post, I am now showing you the design that I came up with for the little robot character that I sketched last week.
