Blaz: Thanks man! Great you like the Bettie designs.
The new issue of 'GameStar/dev' is out now. It contains my tutorial MakingOf about how I made the 'Scientist In Love' image you can see some posts above.
Before I started to work out the image I did some idea-thumbnails. Because they are so small in print here are some bigger versions... but keep in mind they are only fast thumbnails to sketch down some ideas...
Hey what is this? I post some of my old stuff and loose one star... damn!
Dynamike: Thank you! Sure it will work out and give me the chance to do more concept designs and comic related material. I'm looking forward to this new time! ... there could be worst things than working from home and being his own boss.
Flesheater: Thank you too! You will see more of my comic work... I don't know if you will see it here but you can buy it ... hehe. Sure I will post what I'm allowed to post. The girl with the green spacesuit was a quick designsketch I did for a comic project I had planned to do as an album for the european market. I decided to do something for the american market instead when Dan contacted me with Alpha Bettie which is a fantastic story I instantly loved and had to do. 2006 started as a great year and ended as a very sad one because of a death in my family. My wife and my little boy are okay and I'm looking forward to the time ahead and some great projects... Bettie included
And because this is a Sketchbook and I posted too much old stuff already... here are some newer sketches of two childhood heroes...
Hey there nice work with the Star Trek characters!! I love that show and always will. Don't worry about the stars, just keep doing what you're doing. Those stars are not an accurate representation of your work.
And finally a big HELLO to Peter Bergting! I know you are surfing my sketchbook... hehehe
If you guys don't know Peter's fantastic comic 'The Portent' (Image Comics) yet go and buy it! It is available in German now too.
I don't know where to start. I have so much news to tell...
Ok, let me start with saying "I've quit my job". ... I'm sure this is something you would like to say too right!? hehe
... and it gets better: I relocated and I will work as a freelancer from at home starting today
My first project is a comic for the new 'Tales from the Crypt' comics from Papercutz. I will start working on it in exact 8 hours from now.
Today I've finished a tutorial for the biggest German game developer magazine 'GameStar/dev' where I created a character. The Tutorial will show how I created the Girl you can see in this post.
Beside my comic work on TFTC I will work on cover illustrations for a German book publisher. More about this very cool gig I will tell you soon...
Hi Chris, nice to see you again. First of all I must say "Good Luck with your new job experience", I think that with your great talent the customers will be truly large in number.
I like the last character, especially the clothes.
Keep sharing, cheers
Dreamworker: A big THANK YOU for your kind words! Great you like the girl from the tutorial.
I'm trying to post more stuff in the future now that I'm working full time as a freelancer but I'm so deep into fantastic new projects right now I think it will take a while to get to the 'regular' posts... so for today it is only a fast sketch with some color tests I did for one of my current projects. I think you will hear about it soon
