I don't do comissions anymore, sorry.But Feel free to use all of the paintings in my gallery as you like, except the ones that say copyright in the description. You don't have to ask me for permission. I don't have the paintings in my gallery in higher resolution, sorry.
FORGOTTEN MOUNTAIN - is the highest mountain in the Night Mountains range. It's very peek is covered with clouds (like Olympus ) Some say, that beneath the clouds there live dragons.
This is nearly the last drawing from the series! Soon I will upload the final one I am aware, that I made a quite typical drawing of a mountain here. but I am quite pleased of it. I never painted a mountain like this before, in the centre of the drawing, so it was both something typical and unusual if you get what I mean ^^)

UPDATE - 10.04.2008 General update of the files. Postwork, colors, sharpening and refined details.
Another one of my big ideas done. I wanted to do that kind of image for years! Now i finally could do it. Since i saw the fellowship of the ring on the big screen i had this kind of pic in mind. When the first part of the lotr trilogy hit the big screen i barely started my journey through scenery art. back then i did not know that i would come that far with my work. today i think... it was a long way! and there is still so much to learn. special thanks to gary tonge for some composition hints! helped a lot!
not much to say this time. this time i worked with photo and painting only. manips included. no terragen or c4d. please check this link [link] for more info about how the pic was done. i worked with two psd files. the first psd to establish the basic background elements. the second psd to build in the details.
"When I was a boy I heard a story about a wizard. This was not any ordinary wizard who used his power for himself, but for everyone. He was given his power by nature itself when there was no hope for its own survival as one last act for all of humanity to live as it has lived, in peace. The wizard did his job without reason as it was his duty; him and nature lived in harmony for thousands of years. One day the wizard asked a question to his makers why he was chosen instead of someone greater, why he was given this power and why, if he had so much power, did he have to obey them.
Nature saw what the power had changed the wizard into; something dark had taken hold of him. As nature decided his time had come to an end, they sought to take the power back from the wizard. The wizard became furious and struck back with vengeance. He claimed he would not stop until all had been destroyed on the world he had protected for so long. To this day, the world remains unbalanced. A fight between two titans does not bode well for people like you and I. We need to find the next hero to keep us safe, one that will not lose their faith in this world. A keeper of our grail."

I took the old boring King Kong mattepainting and turned it into something that is, hopefully, a little more exciting. The sketchiness is done on purpose, though some areas may be under-defined, but that's alright.
This piece was a big challenge for me, because I worked with architecture and difficult perspective for the first time, which means I had to plan the whole composition from the beginning, which I normally don't do. Just the process of getting the perspective right and the elements in place took the time I normally use to finish a piece. There was also a lot of texture work involved. Although it's still far from perfect, I learned a ton about perspective, which is great.
We were lucky to be chosen to work on Columbus’ Legacy, which is an hidden object game/HOPA game. We created background art for all the locations of this game! We took part in the making of this game for more than one year. This picture is an abandoned hut inside of the lost village.
A friend of mine ask if we could do some sort of weekly challenge (or so). Pretty cool idea - forces me to push my skills in different directions. The first theme - some sort of drow city. Here's my interpretation…
