It may come as a surprise to some of you, but yes... I am still alive. Haven't had time to do much personal painting these past months, but now I finally finished something new. And I am quite proud of this one, can't wait to see it on a really large print. Hope you guys enjoy it. I think I can say with some certainty, that you should be able to see another piece or two quite soon.

Tell me what you think!

...or?

I know, it's hard to believe. Two submissions in one week, I'm setting personal records here!

I have been working on this on and off for quite a while now. To be honest, I'm still not entirely happy with it, but I think I have to call it done. Sometimes working too much on something just leads nowhere. And this bugger has changed a LOT since the initial sketch. Still, I'm overall quite happy and it feels good to finally have realized one of my dozens of ship sketches as a painting. More may follow...

As usual, I'm curious to hear what you think. Print should follow soon. Happy Easter, everyone! :heart:

Look at that, he still works digitally as well! :lmao:

This is a rather quick piece that I did this week. Should be about 10 - 11 hours. The whole painting was pretty much there after 7 hours, but I wanted to polish it a bit and add a few details. Whoever coined the phrase that the last 10% of a piece take 90% of the work time, was right on the money.

Anyhow, I hope you guys enjoy it. I got a nice matte print of the 7-hour state in front of me here, and I have to say it looks pretty nice. So treat yourself and check out the print, as soon as it is up! :D

I actually began this piece over two years ago, and then put it aside because I just couldn't get it right and it kept bugging me. So a few days ago I decided to dig it out and finish it. Looks so much better now!

Dedicated to `mynti , who has seen this from the first sketches and always kept nagging me to finish it. Well... I finally got around to it :D

Print will follow on monday...

Concept from a cancelled game project.

Done for Frogster Interactive Pictures AG

By now the pieces are almost two years old and I'm definitely noticing mistakes, but I figured I'd show them anyway. I still had fun working on them.

Hope you guys like them =]

Seems like I actually managed to finish one of the many personal paintings that I have started over the course of the past weeks and months, whenever work allowed. This one began as a tiny ballpoint sketch in my sketchbook...and developed into a little more work than I had originally anticipated. Partly because I wanted to paint this one without using any photos or textures. But I had loads of fun, and I hope you will enjoy it as well!

I will probably upload the print next week. Am looking forward to hear what you guys think. Much love :heart:
