Orlan Korninger (private character commission)

The past days I've been painting Heike Wolf's pen&paper roleplay character Orlan Korninger. He is a member of a holy order that stands for law and order, and against harmful magic, the so called "Bannstrahler Orden". It is basically the holy inquisition, but in Aventuria (The Dark Eye ).

Since Orlan has pretty bad eyes, he usually wears glasses while reading. I've painted a version with and one without them.

Heike Wolf is by the way well-known for writing German historical and fantasy novels and adventures for The Dark Eye. I especially liked her novel "Die Tote im Nebel", a mystery crime fiction, playing in central Germany (Marburg), featuring one of the brothers Grimm (Wilhelm Grimm) and playing with the theme of Little Red Riding Hood and the bad wolf.

You want to get your character drawn or painted by me? Please get in touch!

I've posted the version with glasses on my Instagram and on my facebook artist page
Costly Plunder (Vraska)

Vraska is not a beautyqueen and I like that fact very much about her. 
The card got animated for the Ixalan promotion trailer. You can see her in action at about 0:49 seconds:…

Dire Fleet Poisoner (Magic the Gathering)

I haven't posted anything for quite a while. I am going to change that.
I start with my newest illustration that just came out today, when Magic the Gathering's Rivals of Ixalan got released.
