    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.

    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

    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.

    Hey there,

    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)

    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?

    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
