    Things i do.

    I decided that it was time to get rid of my old nickname and take my real name as a nick instead (thanks again Fozz).
    So here i am with a new sketchbook. I hope i can keep this as regular as possible. I'm aiming for 3 updates a week...let's see how things turn out.

    As a start something i did more or less recently.

    those paintings and especially sketches are insane man, I really dig it.
    I think the third painting with the yellow knight guy, might contain a bit boring colors, but other than that it's top notch.

    Keep to it!

    great pencilwork, and style.
    hope we will see more from you, i think your strength lies in your pencillines, try to use the same style in color paintings.

    Lms piece had me dying here, loved it. Your creatures might be gettin repetitious, maybe vary the designs a bit here and there or add more mass to their frames, I dunno. Cool textures in the paintings, something I need to try. Post more!

    Some really nice work. Quality's high, the paintings and sketches are great. As has been said, vary your designs a bit more. You're already improving, I think. Keep on.

    Vor allem die Farbbilder sind echt imposant gelungen. Gute Lichtsetzung und farbabstimmung.
    Hab gehört du musst euer Projekt am 9.12 mitvorstellen an der GamesAkademy. ´Toi,toi, toi
    Hab zudehm neulich Nacho getroffen, hatte sich an der selben schule beworben wie ich, vielleicht sind wir dann im selben semester wenn alles gut geht. N paar andere Berliner waren auch dabei.
    Kann sein dass ich mal fürn't Wochenende nach Berlin komme, so nächstes Jahr oder so, wär cool aufn' Bier sich treffen zu können....
    Bis denne.....

    Really sweet stuff in here man. Your pencil style really suits those insectoid critters, and I love the 'random' piece in your 4th post. Great colours.
