The drawing was created with the idea to represent all the bad that we can do in the name of evil. How many wars have been declared on behalf of good, when actually, the goal was greed. How many times we have reached the war associating the enemy as the bad one (evil) ,as the partner of the devil. When in reality the good and evil are relative and they're not in God or the Devil, but expressed in humans.

First painting in a while! I started with little planning and no line art - just slapped down some paint and kept going, and switched to black and white halfway through, when I realised I was churning out yet another brown horse painting. As it progressed, I concentrated on getting a sense of solidity and three-dimensionality into my digital stuff. I also wanted it to have a kind of storybook illustration feel. I think it's probably the best I've done so far.

Backstory :

The Zancoatl, was a myth carried through the generations. A massive serpent god who lives in the plane of Air, large enough to wrap itself around mountains and crush them with a force enough to shake the whole world. It travels through energy waves faster than light being almost invisible to the naked eye, only loud thunderous roars can be heard.

But one fateful day, a powerful Mage feast his ears upon this myth. Eager to view this magnificent creature, he researched and practice the magic of summoning rifts of Air. He could open small ones at first, and then bigger ones. Then, after many many years, he felt he was ready.

Climbing up on top of the highest mountain, he began casting his spell. He felt the wind around him raging with tempests and storms. Cyclones formed from the clouds. And then he saw the sky ripping apart as a bright blue light blinded him. A rift was formed before his very eyes, and something huge was coming out of it. Massive. Colossal. And the moment the mage saw what it was, he knew that the myth of the generations have been proven.....

..and he feared for his life.

A monster idea I had in mind after seeing the cute monster design contest banner, so I am joining in the fun! :)

** Yes it is supposed to be a monster disguised as a ninja. Therefore the intended ambiguity of the fangs (eyes), eyebrows (monster's eyes). :)

I wanted to approach this contest and do it my own way, and god only knows how many sketches and even finishes I came to before I settled on this piece. I have a new found respect for the concept artists of this game, every time I looked at the armor I kept finding new screws and hooks and so many tiny details. So here is Anya and a Brumak.

Another figure painting from Angel Academy, done from life. In the class of "Maestro", we use a different style/method pretty much everytime time, and I love it.

Size is about 110x60 cm. Took several days to paint.
I used Winsor&Newton oil paints, and some by Old Holland.

I can't believe it! Just came back home from Italy to my parents' place in Germany, and there is my mom baking cookies! Berliner Brot, something between a biscotti and a brownie, and they're quite good. Even more so because she rarely ever bakes. Ah, the wonderful Christmastime!

After a lot of work, and a lot of distractions, it's finaly done!
My entry to the Tomb Raider Reborn contest.
I decided to take it up a notch and try out some new painting techniques. Watched a couple of tutorials and aplyed them, and this is the result.
I think it turned out pretty well, though there's still much to learn and practice.
Hope you like it :)

There's a pretty rad skateboard comp going on in collaboration between DeviantART and several bands. Go check it out if you want to see your work printed up on a board!
