Hello folks!

I have been busy on the programming front so hardly finalized the artsy front but now have finally finished the Flash project I worked on. It is essentially a heradly generator which allows you to create your own Coat of Arms. I found some similar stuff on genealogy and heraldy pages but most of them were more about the formulas and rules defined by medieval heraldy while not looking to be create nice looking coat of arms.

This one is more of an art editor meant to allow anyone to shuffle together his own shield without being limited in his imagination or having to be capable to draw or paint anything.

You'll find it here:Fantasy shields

I'm currently still working on the presentation of The lists and will add more content to the selection panel but overall a sortiment of basic shapes and most common beasts is already available. I'll see to it to get more ready. Some performance tweaking might be in order as well as currently there're no progress bars telling you how much it needs to load and how much it has done already. I will come back to this latter!

For suggestions and ideas feel free to comment here!

A while back I created a couple of truetype fonts of several writing systems and runic alphabets I had devised. Because of several requests concerning an example page of mine in the gallery I now offer them to download on my homepage.

Some of them a several years old, some of them incomplete but they should be suitable for your rpg round or world development projects to give some flavour to some of your stuff.

You may freely use them for any non-commercial works or application. I only would appreciate it if you give me credit by adding my name and deviantart gallery or homepage URL!

The url to my homepage can be found on my profile info or plainly here:

Have fun and I hope you enjoy it!

In an effort to bring you more stuff to see while preventing me from doing extra work ,;) I compiled a slideshow of the development stages of Spearwoman ( > final ). You can download the quicktime movie (~8 MB) at here at my homepage

I hope you enjoy. I must say such snapshots of my development stages in a painting really help me to appreciate the progress I made, esspecially when I get stuck with something and can't work it out properly. It usually helps to see that it is indeed progress, just doesn't look that way when your head deep in it. :)

Kinda....

After a long dryspell I finally found my way back to some illustration works.  Hope you enjoy and I hope I can deliver some more stuff in the not so distant future.

I really want t get back into the saddle. I recognize how I rather devolved over the past years and now only slowly get back to where I want to be.

Enjoy and thanks to all who faved my pictures!


Comment much, comment long, comment hard!

I really appreciate feedback.

Cheers,

Mangalore

A general thanks to anyone taking the time to comment on my stuff. It always appreciated to know what others think and some praise cannot hurt to fight the general depression, an artist has at all times when his skills are not yet where he wants them to be. So thank you!

Cya, I'll try to get some more stuff done in the future!
Well, currently I seem to lack the time or will to finish some bigger painting so I decided to upload a couple of sketches I'm satisfied with. Maybe I even manage to tranform one of them to something deemed finieshed but we'll see about that. Until the enjoy the ugliness of sketches! ;)
A new row of updates, this time of newer images. I'm currently struggling to find the right balance between detail, realism and composition as well as for a workflow that doesn't feel as slow as my former brute force approach.
Well, as this is the first entry by me I just guess I better go and introduce myself. High, I'm 24 years old,  currently studying Mediadesign in the nice medieval touched city of Augsburg, Germany. I kinda dig all things fantasy and besides lots of reading and roaming through fantasy art try my hands on drawing myself which takes quite a bunch of my freetimes outside studying.
Currently in my final year so drawing is one of my few left sparetime activities in my very rare sparetime. Here's a portion of my work(most already a bit older) and I hope you enjoy it. And as it stands, I always appreciate some constructive criticism to enhance my skills, so thank you for any advice, remark or praise you feel to post. Thank you in advance!

I'll try to bring up some newer work as soon as possible. Currently on vacation and try to spend as time as possible on fooling around with my Wacom tablet.

Cya, Mangalore
