Albion Online - Morgana Faction
Hello everybody =] This is one of the many loading screens I did over here at Sandbox for the game Albion Online. It's a really cool game with a charming world, so if you don't know it yet, give it a shot =]
Had a lot of fun painting these loading screens, hope you will like them as well!

Find me on Facebook:
And on Artstation:

Let me know, what you think! :heart:
In The Midday Heat
Whew, this was a major push for me. I have always been fascinated by the orientalist painters and with this I attempted to do a painting in a similar vein. Hopefully I will do them justice =] It's also the first time I am incorporating people in a significant way, which definitely was way out of my comfort zone. But all the life drawing's gotta pay off somehow :lol:

As with the recent pieces, I did my prelimenary sketches on paper. If you want to see more from my sketchbook, find me on facebook:
Also you can find my work on ArtStation:
Prints might follow soon!

Anyhow, I really hope you guys will like it, let me know what you think!

After the previous journal entry had graced my dA profile for like a year and a half, I figured it's about time for a new one. Hopefully though my recent submissions have proved that I am indeed alive. And I can tell you that it feels good to finally have some new pieces up. Since June last year I have been working as a full time concept artist, and that left me pretty much no time for personal stuff. But I am having a great time at the job and I have learned so much and have in fact painted more than ever before. Lately I just got too fed up with having only my rather old pieces up, hence why I made the time for new ones. And I'm definitely happy that you guys are enjoying them, that's great encouragement. There are a good many more pieces in the pipeline, but I don't know yet when I will find the time to finish them.

The next couple of weeks will be rather chaotic for me and I will probably not be online much, so please don't take offense if I am not replying immediately. I will still read every comment. But life sure isn't boring these days.

Hope all of you are doing well!
Dancakes :heart:

Hello! Thank you so much for your words and analysis on a piece I made. :D
Your works are so, so beautiful!
I'd like to ask what is the purpose of having a tilted view in your landscape paintings? I've seen it in numerous landscape paintings and it really gives off a nice impact but I don't really know why and how behind it.
I hope to see more from you!

Hey, sure thing! I don't find the time to be as active here as I used to be, but when I see something promising I like to point it out :nod:
Tilting the view can add a dramatic effect to a piece. It offsets the viewer and that visual imbalance translates into a emotional one (ideally). It doesn't make sense in every situation, but if you want to indicate a sense of fear or impending danger, then tilting might just give that extra push =]

And thank you for the compliment! You will see more, although it might take me a while. I don't to find much time for personal paintings. But if you want, you can follow me on facebook, where I upload my traditional sketches quite regularly!

Where'd you attend school
memod Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2018  Professional
As in where I studied? I studied film and animation at the SAE in Leipzig and Berlin. But I didn't learn to draw or paint there. In regards to that I am self-taught.

Hope that helps =]
