some drawings .. from a longer while ago.
The last 2 drawings are lineart drafts for illustrative tattoos with given specific guidelines regarding the comicstyle, mood & what keyelements to depict.
(reduced opacity of the fills to see the lines)
Well John, I don't have much to say that will help you. But I will say two things
1) I'm glad I checked out your thread
2) I think this is going to be a great sketchbook to watch.
some random lil paintings done outta boredom .. made in Paintchat
huhm the last one pictures Benkei, a character I designed & kinda carry around with me for years.. if someone wantsta know ^^
and yeah perspective's kinda crooked'n'made up
Waaw, nice start man.
I can see you got some talent to drawing and painting. Great colors, i love the speculars of your rock painting, really.
Show us moar!
If you don't mind I would like to give some feedback: in your last painting, you should give the weapon some more thickness, now it looks a bit flat.
But great colours and composition. Anatomy looks fine too
that bird is amazing . like it a lot..
this like the next new 5 star book .. awesome start !!
Really nice SB you have here!! Keep posting! LOVE the bird!
Great intro Love the work so far and keep dropin your work cause it's definitely on point from what i see, lovely pieces
Oh thank you very much for your comments - didn't xpect it that fast and positive with all the xcellent and shiny stuff around here.
As a base I'll post older and finished works of mine that won't be touched again .. hoping some of you guys may point out some things that keep flawing my pieces & I should keep in mind for future works.. Is this's ok.
also@artaphrax; I def. don't mind at all
@Oma; Srry for my nooby question(I'm not that used to spec. Terms) what did you meant by 5star book?
here's some more older stuff

I like this! You are clearly not afraid to have fun and play around with things such as perspective, and it pays off. To answer your question of a 5 star book, he means that this thread (sketchbook) will soon have a 5 star rating, which is the highest that people can vote for it. You need I believe at least three votes on the quality of the thread before they get averaged out and displayed.

Allright thenalso@artaphrax; I def. don't mind at all
Your rendering technique is great man.
I wonder how your environments would be... hint...
and again thanx for your kind replies guys!
@Andrew; big thanx I appreciate it, also the xplanation - I see if you guys say so .. hehe I feel kinda flattered.. ^^
@Fetsch; thanx, nice to know and yeah right the Daf .. hm memories..
also thanx to you artaphrax - hm Environments, don't made that much of those .. foremost in combi with something to tell or with character interaction
somemoer older stuff -drawings and lineworks for an indiegameproject that didn't survived the concepting phase I kinda liked a lot but hm well..
-huhm is it me or just on my end or why do attached pics don't show up?-

thank you guys again,
and @Rocko; glad to see you too^^ round here. Nope, that bird wasn't meant for tattooing purpose, its an illustration from a bands logo I did 4 their Albums special edition (called Dante's Dream); besides doin most of their artwork.
here's some more old stuff I'd like ta show; this may be considered as Environments in some ways..
(the last one's conceptwork with a roughcoloring showing the maincharacter's home, the 'suicidaltower' in the BG and some parts of the housings - connected to the indiegame project I showed the maincharacters some posts ago)
lovin it so far
(Insert witty remark here)
hey Steffen, thank you..
yeah its mostly self-tought (from interest since I can remember, observation and a restless mind that needs to xpress itself through my hands + some courses in studying nature(stillife, people, models etc.)) perhaps thatz why I'm kinda standing still sucking dust..
and I'm 29yrs - but why? is it important?

Great stuff! Love the energy in your work.
Hey thanks 4 your positive comments, guys
Here're some more environment pieces;
first one's a header illustration for the blog from texterkolonie.de
the second one is quite old, one of some backgroundillustrations for a childrens shortfilm consisting of 3 parallax layers around 3-4screens wide for ergotherapie-steindl.de
