    Hey Janos! Love your new work!
    I just really wanted to wish you good luck on that interview (if I'm not too late )
    That does make me wonder though.. How old are you anyway? (Don't answer if you don't want to )

    Take care!

    grats on the news about school! i really like your watercolours, do you perhaps have any specific tips for someone with basicly no painting experience to work with watercolour? :3

    Hi Lav
    Watercolours are a really tough one. I kinda was attracted to them because I can work in washes and get a very vibrant and light colour and soft transitions. You really need to WORK and PAINT with them for a few months to get the idea behind them. But there are some useful tips of course. The paper is key, get a nice thickness and a very light grain. I do not really like rough watercolour paper because the texture kind off gains the upper hand. Keep the water you wash your brushes in clear all the time. Get different thicknesses of brushes. And invest in proper aquarelles with a strong pigmentation. The cheap watercolours you used as a kid aren't going to cut it. They tend to have less saturation and they also streak more.

    Luckers I'm 20, 21 in one week though!

    Thanks Darknight and Danilo I totally see what you mean, and I think I am slowly going in that direction, a good basic knowledge is key for me though, and I do not think I am there yet.

    Many different faces. Enjoy!

    SO, I have been working on the World-Project and here is some new character design stuff.
    These designs are for a group of people living on isolated attols and on house-ships sailing the ocean, mostly peaceful but at times as pirates. The designs shown further down are the clothes they wear when visting one of the few atoll-cities. No weapons and the hair let loose.

    More coming in the following days. Do not expect too mush traditional stuff in the next few weeks!

    WOW! Things are looking great in here! Look at all those people you drew! Holy crap! Very impressive stuff, Janos! Don't slow down! just keep going! Ha! The latest character concept is very nice. I love how loose you seem to make it look. Very different ideas in each. I might push the values a bit more to develop the forms a bit. Some lighter areas and darker areas to make things pop more. Great job tho! Lovin' it!

    SO, I promised I would treat you to the stuff I have been doing the last few months and here it is, enjoy it and let me know what you think about it:

    The people presented in the following post are men and women of the sea. They live on their huge ships and boats and travel on the oceans of our world. Once every year the return to one of their few island cities were they take part in religious rituals and see their family again. Special dress codes for the life at sea and the life on land are deeply rooted in this cultures customs. The tightly braided hair is let loose and decorated with native plants and flowers. The woman dress in sheer and light fabrics, put on their finest jewellery, sometimes stolen from one of the merchant ships of the olden people, and the men leave their battle gear on deck and celebrate with their comrades at one of the many feasts that take place a whole week.

    Thanks Darknight. Rendering is a step I am not ready to take yet, though I am definitely going in that direction at the moment. Soon I will be able to show you some more stuff, newer stuff where I brought the rendering up a notch. Atm I have a lot more idea/design work to do, and time is ticking so I just need to get the ideas out and talk about them with my collegue. There is tuff to change often so I don't bother going with a complete render. The idea with the atmospheric leg/arm (the one further away) is good though. I'll keep that in mind.

    If anyone feel like hearing a good song by Bat for Lashes and Beck
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRQpJldYrps
    It supposedly is on the twilight soundtrack, check it out though, its really good!

    The Nomads that live in the north of "Arabia" in the stony deserts and the mountain chains that divide the land of the olden people and the land of the Arabs are the last few remaining ancestors of the now modern culture of Arabia. They believe in the god of fire and the god of rain, both of which are moody gods that give life and take it again. Every Nomad grouping has its own two shamans that dedicate their life to the gods. The sex of teh shaman is secondary to their character and knowledge.

    Thanks guys for the nice comments, here is some more stuff just for you.

    After hundred of years of being servants and slaves to the olden people the freedom the imprisoned nomads got from the mongols led them to start populating cities and leave the nomadic life behind. Their culture prospered dramatically due to strong commercial bonds to "India" and the other newly founded nations after the fall of the Olden Empire. Keeping certain rituals and habits from their nomadic ancestors the arab people began worshipping the sun as a monotheistic god.

    The Headress of the pope in the very last image is taken from an Alexander McQueen collection. I used it only because I didn't have the time to sketch the intended idea, but aas its very similar I chose to take the image and tamper with it.

    Cool stuff man! Some of those have anatomic issues, but I understand that anatomy isn't the point of those anyways.

    I'll be hijacking your references if you don't mind

    Keep it up!

    AimBiz: Thanks!

    Morgado: Anatomy issues are my main problem, so please feel free to push me in the right direction.

    MattGamer: Thank you. A certain consistancy is very important because it maked the work go faster and the end results are more comparable.


    The tribes living in the jungles south of the Olden Empire have been living in harmony with nature since thousand of years. When the Olden people conquered the jungle a bloody war errupted but by infiltrating the religious castes of the natives the intruders managed to make them surrender. The tribes of the jungle were enslaved and brought to the Mountain of the Gods where they were used fore every need the blue blooded Olden people had. The few remaining natives adopted the believe in Death the Olden people had brought with them but swore to revenge their loss. When the "Mongols" attacked the Olden Empire the Jungle tribes started their own reconquista of the jungle by assaulting the cities that had been build on their earth and killing the intruders.

    Nice tribespeople Janos! In fact excellent work on all of these character designs!!
    If you get a chance, check out James Gurney's work on "Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara" (he often puts up images from it on his blog Gurney Journey). Post #930's moodboard really puts me in mind of it!

    and good luck with the next stage of application to Stuttgart!
