    You have some amazing figure/ground interaction going on in the first painting of your last post. I also love the second image because it's sort of a children's book stile at odds with its subject matter.

    There's a ton of new things learned. But those things aren't all that artistic, spectacular or Conceptart-worth... unless anyone wants to see infographics for the printing process or my mexican loo modell from Sketchup or wants to hear about intellectual property rights in Germany.
    Since the last time I have been trying a lot of new programs, improved the workflow, learned stuff that's necessary for the printing process, for label design and infographics, first time finished projects in Indesign, Illustrator, Sketchup and Autodesk Sketchbook. And on a long sunday I finally tamed the free-growing reference folders with Adobe Bridge - what a nifty little program. Right now I am kicking in my own soft butt cheeks because I didn't see it's usefullness a lot earlier. Besides that I have been running my feet into my stomach on the bookfair in Leipzig where I helped out with the illustrators organization (hey guys!).


    Art. 3 pictures? OK.
    I could really use a critique for design and composition on that picture with the red bird. I am stuck, to the point where I am completely blind.

    This was a one day speeddrawing/coloring job.

    I used a modell for this and this didn't give me all that much control over the composition.

    There are folders and folders full with stuff that looks like this:

    It's all useless without the context.

    LOVE everything in your last post. Fantastic design choices, especially in the dog/head one.

    I don't know if you've made changes since the last update, but it seems like the bird one is a relatively solid design. It could use some jazzing up of the overall shape, the silhouette gets a little bit boring and predictable as my eyes move down from the bird. Perhaps if you add some sort of complicated large shape toward the bottom to represent the floor you could counteract this effect? I'm imagining some pale, swirly sort of smoke shape in a hue that ties to the bird's in my head. Hope this helps!
