My artwork of 2009

For the end of the year I have updated the website with a compilation of my favorite artworks of 2009. I was quite productive this year and you'll find a colorful mix of subjects and an extra dose of my ramblings in the new exhibition.

That's it for this year. I wish you all a happy new year and hope to see you around in 2010!

Cleaning up the slate

I'm slowly getting ready to start my Wormworld Saga graphic novel. I plan to start the practical work in January and I'm spending the last days of the year on cleaning up my project folders and preparing for the big project. I stumbled upon a sketch from early this year in which I toyed around with the idea for some Captain Orion artwork. During the production of my CG Challenge entry which featured Captain Orion for the first time I had started to collect story ideas just to backup the character a bit. Well, these ideas developed into a rough story outline and I summed that up in three paintings that could serve as a setup for the Captain's adventures.

The story isn't too sophisticated right at the moment. It's a classic "guy escapes to a fantastic far off place and becomes a hero" story but I already have some interesting visual cues in mind that could make it worthwhile.

Well, I guess that's just something you also have to do before big projects: shelve the smaller ones until it's their turn.

My inner demons

During a longer phonecall my friend Igino discovered strange creatures in the header image of my website. With some swift brushstrokes he revealed my inner demons!

Or are they his? :)
