Sargent study - concentrating on values and color

Application of sargent study (middle) to a painting from imagination. Damn looking at reference makes such a difference!

Don't ask!


Hey guys! I had a freaking headache all day and in the end decided to just live with it and paint something still. I like only the colors, but the only way to improve is to try, right? :)

Temporary Post

Hey guys!

The blog is currently incomplete. Because I can't publish my freelance work until it's released. As soon as this happens, I will fill all the gaps. So I might be a good idea to check out the months from June until now from time to time ;)

Noah's Art Camp


After finishing some of my work I started another imaginative sketch today. Took me around 50mins.

Just finished the second imaginative sketch right now. This time 45 mins. Hui!

Third sketch for today. Damn coming up with those one after another is really hard. 20-30mins for this one. Also I mainly used the marque tool. Which makes a really interesting working approach!

Noah's Art Camp


Did a color study of one of Kazuo Ogas paintings. And afterwards tried to apply it as best as I could to the sketch I did a couple of days ago. It looks awful but only through trying I can get better. So here it is!

Sketchbook pages


Hey guys! I'm feeling quite creative currently. So I kept working from imagination in my new sketchbook. Colors are from copic markers and colored pencils. The first and second one are based on sketches from yesterday.

Lots of sketches


Today is a very exciting day. Because I finally finished my first sketchbook! My whole life i always drew on loose papers only, so having started a real sketchbook in December 2012 I'm glad to announce that after nearly a year I have filled it completely :D
The last sketch is already the first page of my new one. This being Din A4. So I'm really excited working twice as big as usual.

Hello! Today I wanted to see how good my memory is. So sat down and drew my kitchen in perspective from memory. I'm seeing it everyday and still I had to think really hard about where on the walls tiles where and where not.

Illustration Progress


Hey guys! Spend some more time on my illustration today. Rearranged her in front of the moon, so she is in focus. And finished the line art today. Also took out the color. So that it doesn't get overwhelming and I can tackle on problem at a time. So wish me luck :)

Final Design


Hi guys,

here the final design for my client. Next to me was another possible artist he checked out for his game and in the end he went with him. Because they were both living in the same city and therefor could meet in person and didn't have issues time zone wise. Which is totally understandable for me, I would have done the same!

Also I have a lot of respect for him, because he offered this paid for art test. Unfortunately there are not many people out there who do so.

It still was a fun experience, especially since I haven't designed any animal like characters yet. I have still a lot to learn and look forward to new exciting challenges! :)

Mini contract

Hi guys,

I got a small request regarding a dog-like super hero. I wanted to do something a bit different at first, so I went with a worgen like creature. Luckily I also did a more generic super hero type character. Because that's what he wanted to go with in the end ;)

Here the initial sketches (I didn't send them to him yet, he got tomorrows version):
