Studying Ships

This week was all about doing some design decisions on the main shapes of my ship for the ArtStation challenge. I was quite happy with the initial design, but the bow shape is still a little bit too generic. So I spent most of this week studying bow shapes 😉 Here are two pages of…

I also studied the mechanisms of trip hammers for a side project that I am currently working on. Refining my initial conceptual design for the ArtStation challenge, I also played around…

Happy Easter

First and foremost, I wish you all a Happy Easter 🙂 This week has been really busy with the final homework for my current CGMA class. Most of this has been done digitally, so I didn’t use my sketchbook much at all. I drew a cute little easter bunny though 😉 As a little compensation,…

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. I did that design for my current CGMA class and quite liked the robot, so I decided to render it with Copic markers, colored…

New Homepage Layout

After my homepage has been online for about 1 year now, it was finally time to give it a proper layout. The old one was not really bad, but it had some essential design flaws that were even getting on my own nerves. To me, that seemed to be a clear signal to redo it…
