    You've got a beautiful "fairy-tale" style. I find the story about the toad touching in particular.. such innocence in his eyes while in the beak of that stork. Well done!

    Your other works also show some versatility and a much more darker approach. Enjoyed it all!

    @all: Thanks, I really appreciate the nice comments and I am totally into training myself at the moment...at least until I seriously start to work for my diploma ^^°

    @knoxie: Shiver in happiness, heres a small update ^^

    ----

    My first piece for one of the ca weekly activities: I am more into creatures thant characters, but I still want to do both ^^

    Translucent, muscular and levitating: The mammoth leech.
    Book illustrations and other works

    And a pic I made after a old german childrens rhyme: A rough translation:

    One stands in the forest, silent and mute
    He wears a purple-red coat
    Say who might that one be
    that stands there in the woods alone
    in his purple red coat


    I made this pic yesterday night, but when I look at it now in daylight, it looks pretty dark...maybe too dark.

    Hey this work is great. I especially like the newborn contest paintings. I like the spider creature one the most--that is just fantastic. And the rock guy chiseling a baby is so creative! The outer space one I wish was a little easier to see the woman--I know it sposed to be subtle but people could look right past it.

    @Artfix: Thx, glad you like it

    Another CHOW entry. Though it got a lot of votes, I didnt make it again ^^ And now I really have to start working on another project so I am not sure If I will be able to take part in C(H)OWs in the next time. T__T

    And I am desperately trying to get better in Painter XI, I am only used to PS, and Painter is kinda tricky to handle. but I am curious how close to real oil you can get with it.

    Ok, the CHOW: Junkyard golem

    Sorry for the long time without an update.
    I am pretty busy with my Diploma and things like that.

    My diploma is in co-work with a local museum and the planned redesign of their dinosaur exhibition. The work is freely created, but theres a chance that they will buy it later.

    I tried a new stile, to bring some fresh air into that pretty old fashioned museums art. They like it so far. Here are some postcards in the same stile, to give an impression.

    I really like the Newborn pieces especially the first one. Also I don't think the little red riding hood is too dark. It just adds to the dark and creepy forest feeling.

    Also, the last two dinos in the post above are great. There is just enough of that spontaneity and randomness in the color (which, being a lighter earth tone, can more easily blend with the ground to make a more naturalistic toned background) to make the figure and ground have such interesting interactions with one another. They seem lighter than the other ones which have a much heavier feel i.e. the second, fourth and (borderline) first dinos. This is mainly because the dinosaur itself takes up most of the picture plane and that the color is farther from what we would generally perceive as a naturalistic background. The first one's color is close to what I mean by naturalistic in that they are earth tones but they are also more prominent and dark. The second and fourth one's color is less naturalistic and they are by far the heaviest compositions of the set. The third one solves the color issue by having a more constant wash of blue throughout the entire piece. This turns blue into the "naturalistic" color given that the scene is underwater. I think it would be interesting to try out one of the heavier compositions with the aim of incorporating both figure and ground in the way that makes the last two so successful. Keep up the good work.

    You are right, I changed the Bronto and the ankylo a little.
    The tops got a little more blueish in the bg, but I didnt reupload that one ^^

    The words and colors imply so much in the illustrated love story. I love the character designs (especially the little girl when she jumps into the puddle!), and how they contrast with the background, makes it so fun to look at

    I really think the new style of dinos has something. It is good that each dino have his own color, it makes them unique. I just think that the outlines on some of those (like on the 3rd one) are much stronger than the rest, which makes it a little out of style, but i think you know that and it's matter of time to get it right. Also liked the selection of colors and composition style on the 27# frames. The way you create levels and dynamicankles is great.

    I really like the toad illustrations. Colors and detail are very good. I would not sacrifice detail for speed. I know you have to get more done to make more money, but, it could cost you in the end.
    Good luck.

    @Mah ' Crub: I hope I can do both ^^ Good quality in short time. Or just getting paid better XD
