Hey Jannis, i'm very impressed with your speedy enviros, such strong moods and natural contrast! It seems like your character work is coming along too. Im interested to know if you ever use reference as a guide for those enviros? Or all from the head? Cool flying rat!!
Whisping leaves break the air as lost souls sleep unaware. Colors and sounds thrive and sway under a blind cover of mud and clay
Nice environments. There's a big improvement from the first page to the most recent ones.
AttackCat: Thanks! I barely use ref for anything, especially not for my enviros (as said before, not really a good habit, but it works for what I do right now). They all come from mind and are sketched pretty quick to not loose the image I have in my head when painting them.
xbrianx: I hope so Thanks a lot!
Pencil sketches from the last days. I was on holiday last week in Italy, but I was laying around getting toasted more than I sketched. I guess I needed some recreation. Anyway, back in cold Mid-Europe, so no time for toasting, more time for sketching.
Shrike is a topic of mine, based on Dan Simmons' novels that I'm reading again right now to get some more impressions. He omits describing much of it to keep it frightening, but simply speaking, it's a creature made of chrome/steel blades and thorns. The coolest creature ever, I'll be doing more of those. Focussing on the profile.
The rest is just random sketching.

Sketchbook (daily Oils):
Danke euch beiden
Drew too much lately. Obviously I made some progress, but I'm growing tired of it right now. Here are some bust studies from university drawing class (we draw way too much there, it sucks big ass). My problems with using ref show, but to a degree that I can ignore to pass.

those studies in the last post are really good. I like your hatching / shading technique.
How can you draw too much in a drawing class??? Isn't that the point?
man that last study is sweeeeeeeet looked at it and trhought.. aah k hes's not finished until i took a closer look for a secound and saw that half of his face was torn of xD but thats a study guess.. a good one keep it up!
Adrian: Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it.
So … I'm sorry for not posting here for almost a year (imagine that, I get nauseous when I think about all that time). I've been working hard for uni, trying to get through it with as good grades as possible and doing a lot of advertising and advertisement conception. I guess I'm a little over-worked at the moment, got some health issues (probably related) that keep me from being able to work on those ad projects and I'm actually thinking about all that career stuff a lot these days.
So for a change, I got back to drawing and painting after a year of almost no artwork. It helps me a lot, I can't think of anything else anymore. Still not on my previous best of some paintings per day, but I think I got some quality going on in my stuff that wasn't there before the "break". At least, that's my impression. Tell me what you think, I'm eager to know! Some of those are as old as a year, but most are from the past weeks.
For the first one, I made a quick WIP-process-montage.
PS: I'll scan some dozen portraits made with my now-favorite tool: a fineliner. I've been away from pencils lately, the non-forgiving fineliner helps me work focused. Stay tuned.

Alta Geil!!! FEARLESS!!!
Berlin soll dieses Jahr noch ein Workshop stattfinden!!! =)!!!
Voll geil man!! Also halt dich auf den laufenden! Ich würde mich ends freuen http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...39#post2426239
Thanks a ton!
Soja: Bin dabei, keine Frage. Mal sehen wie viel es kostet, aber nachdem Italien in Shanghai umgeändert wurde, kann's mit Berlin ja gar nicht besser werden.
theories: I'm just learning to refine stuff, I often lost patience with the paintings. Nowadays, I tend to put in some more work.
Here's my first try in zBrush. I love that workflow. It took some time to understand zSpheres, but after that's, it's great that you can just work on it instead of tuning vertices and stuff. I'll definitively work more with it.
EDIT: Uh, I still don't own a scanner, but I'll scan a lot of drawings next week. Promised. For now, here's a quick enviro from mashing some older ones:

Here's the latest update on the bug. Unfortunately, I have some bad joints in there that I can't seem to remove (maybe if I find out how to remove zSpheres from a sculp). Hope you like. More stuff coming.
EDIT: Adding corn to x makes x a lot better. General rule, applies to x.
Phew, the corn made my guts rumble quite a bit.
Uh, so where was I ...
A thing I started yesterday, let simmer for the night and serve to you today. Although I still like the whole lava leech idea, I'm not as happy with it as I wish, sometimes I just hit the wall. I hate the knight in this pic. It took me ages and looks like shit. I already have 60 bucks worth of Bridgman and Loomis in my Amazon cart, which I will order as soon as my check arrives. And I'll take an illustration project next semester so I can focus as much on drawing and painting as I can. I'm sick of this half-baked muddy crap.
