Incredible anamorphic painting! Great job man. Oil's are ruling!
those paintings are amazing.
i like the anamorphic one, it's an interesting concept.
nice stuff once again Hiipi! as has been said, that anamorphic painting is crazy! would love to see that in real life. love the open mouth type of theme you've got going hehe, really nicely executed. keep it up!
kick ass paintings!! keep em coming... I feel like a junkie...
Another double post, just posted all this on the Finished -side.
Made a compilation of these with my self-portrait. It is meant for a "yearbook" - we are to put one picture of a project we´ve done and I chose to do this.
Was thinking of naming it something like this:
"We were listening to music, me and my cherubs, and would have enjoyed it tremendously if there wasn´t for Azazel, Dagon and Urakabarameel ruining it for all of us singing out loud..."
But that name is stupid, you may help me with that if you wants.
we women have the POWER pld:
look I dont know why I love you I just do
Those creepy Hale series rock. Also the one anamorphic piece is stunnig. Looks hard.
Post more! Post more!
yeah dude!!! the paintings look great. that anamorphic one is friggin' cool. Kudos to ya on that one man. You did a great job. Keep it coming man.
Damn me and my updating, almost a month between everything... Bugger me.
Anyway, have something here so I will just show you.
These are quick-oils from life and the lakepiece I actually sold! We set up a small gallery with our painting class in an underground cellar - kinda a bunker. Just put the paintings in there and let them be, then someone contacted me and wanted to buy one. I said yes. Go see, sorry about the music! he he...
Then some columnpics...
Work-related stuff (and many thanks to hipper for this one ):
And then two bookcovers I am workin on at the mo... Painting in oil, bringing it to PS and touching it up there. Good advice is always golden so do open up if there´s something you want to say!
There´s the idea and design, the typography is totally placeholding since I didn´t think of it too much yet and will do it again. But something likes that. And the picture is unfinished in both of them (for example the hands on the farao-one).
Here´s two more recent pics of the paintings, crap pictures but to show you that progress has been made. NOW IS THE TIME TO GIVE YOUR CENTS!!! I will be painting the flying lava and all the jewelry and stuff like that, just haven´t gotten around to it yet...
great skecth.. which porgram are u using ?
Wow... those cruise pics are kicking my ass!!
Haha, the columpics really crack me up
Kewl galleri. I guess you were behind the camera most of the time.
Hmm do you leave the paintings there or are there any one watching the "galleri"?
Damn, I really want to know how you get your realistical palett for those first oils, superb. Teach me!
Hehe, I think hipper made quiet an impression on all of us, but you really did it with that cruiser. Is it one of his paintings you have in the front of it? Looks like you flipped it.
Sorry, but I can't come to think about anything with these last oils. I bet you'll figure something out
thats some good stuff man!!

Ok you did asked
Her left hand from out pov is really to big,
I dont know the story, or if she is supposed to
have her hand on this size, but to me it looks off
Her legs look a bit short, and the buildings clould
use some hard edges here and there
other than that I realy like your color usage and the
faces look very nice and naturalistic.
Thats about all, oh! and I really diged the cartoonny stuff!!
Orkun - I dunno which sketch you mean but some of these are pen&paper, some oil&canvas and the rest wacom&Photoshop. Occasionally some Painter thrown in just to give it a little exercise, so it won´t get fat on my harddrive.
Theo - Däng juu too!
Glikster - Cheers! It was a challence for me, haven´t really done anything like that before. Heavily reffed they were and also stle some bits from other artists.
Peniclator!!! - The swedish angel... Heh, glad you like the columns, I hate them nowadays. I was behind the camera most of the time, yes. It is me setting up the sign though, in the first pics. My design on the sign btw, just found a piece of wood like that from the shore and dragged it down to our workshop and painted it fiery! COOOOOLNESS!!! Ha haaa! And yes you gots it right, we just left them paintings there hoping that no-one will steal them. And no-one has so far. On the guest book there was a marking saying something like this: "Thanks for the gallery, was nice paintings, had fun, had sex." ...and then signed by their names. Ha haa! And about the palette... I dunno, it just comes out like that. It is not realistic at all though...
And you caught me, it is his painting in there!!! I applied the same painting to all of these three, to give texture. Maybe on the rest it is not quite so visible but it is there anyway. Damn, should I say this out loud or not? ;-)
Jho - Kiitsa!
Hurricane - Cheers right back at ya Ruotsin nalle!
"Mean Machine" MacNevin - Njaaaah... I think alcohol is the nectar that provides me with all this inspiration and skill. Sober me up and you drop me down...
...back to the gutter.
and Maxetormer - Thanks for that! I mentioned there before that the hands were not done yet at all, now they are already a bit better but I fear I have to fix them digitally. I have noticed some flaws in her claws, yes I have. And about the legs... Hmm. Dunno if I can do much about that anymore. We´ll leave it be. The publisher has approved these already so I am off the hook but of coz I would want to make them perfect. (too late for that I guess but as_close_to as possible) And you are right about the details in the buildings, they are a bit too vague at the mo. Had no refs for them so I just sketched something in there and you can tell that too much. Will fix.
Thanks y´alll, I will get back to work!!!
Hello, Hiipi. probably a bit late with crits on the book covers. but just in case, my thoughts.
The one with a woman in tunic. I like her figure and the melancholic expression of her face, she already gives some heads off about herself with this static pose, passive body language and meaningful face features. So I like this. About colors. Looks a bit loud to me and very competitive. maybe they told you to do that.
But I blocked these bright orange mountains behind her and tried to imagine some darker color, more like the color of the dress of the woman in the picture above this one or the color of sly and water in the first landscape. It will make the figure of the woman in tunic to pop up more, I think. well, it needs some searching for the right temperature of the shade still. And although there is no wind in your picture I wish the dress of the woman was kind of blowing on the wind, not Marylin Monroe style, no, more decent one. but some beautiful waves with the hint on delicate thin fabric it made of, maybe.
Yeah, the hand is way too bigger than the other one.
In the second book cover, well the feeling of catastrophe is not so big, for me. the body language is almost calm. And again, all the colors compete with each other, hard to tell which is the main focus. The main character's hands are way too long, or yeah, leg are too short. The silhouette in front of the burning building looks too contemporary. It steals the illusion of the time when it happened you know.
I like the first painting. mainly for the cold air and water. The shore looks too warm for me though, I don't think it will be possible in the cloudy, cold day like this to have this shade. it should be cooler and probably less saturated.
Wonderful cartoons, as always, funny and great execution.
I miss you lyrical stuff though, like the theater poster. It was very sweet and touching, probably because of transparency of water and light delicate colors.
nice updates! going in order, the oil pieces you have first look great! really beautiful stuff, hard to say which I like better though I am a sucker for environment pieces hehe. as always the comics you've got are really well done, nicely painted and funny. the 3 after the comics are definitely my favorites of this update, such a great feeling in them all. I especially like the first one, the scale of the ship is well done, definitely feels massive. just hit me as I look at them that it looks like you keep zooming in from picture to picture (least that's how I saw em ) nice touch on that hehe. lastly, really nice book cover paintings, really cool that you did them in oil then in PS. the Pompei one is really nice as well, captured the event well I'd say. nice stuff once again!
i would have made the egyptian girl a little taller perhaps but that's just a nit picky style thing.
i love the little comics you made esp the beauty queen ones! ^^
are you designing the inside of a ship?!?! ^^
Hey you all!!!
Thanks for the comments. So it happens that I returned these to the publisher like this and they were happy (I am not too happy about them though but you don´t have to tell anyone...), only thing is that now all of a sudden they want 15 mm bleed with the pics and of coz I don´t have such a luxury with them. So I have to create it. Otherwise quite an easy task but not in this case since a lot on the pictures is based on the paintings and the visible brush strokes, which I obviously don´t have when I start creating new surroundings digitally.
But here they are:
groovy... wow... that's something I never would have thought of.. yet another way a client can make your life difficult..
