I am very happy to be able to offer my own first book, published by myself, as my own book publisher Torvenius Publications. This is the first release of TP and is strictly limited to a first edition, 333 hand signed copies.
This book contains older digital sketches and speedpaints done by me, ranging from 2008 to 2012. A4 in size.
From the back of the book:
"This is a collection of earlier works by Concept Artist and Art Director
Axel Torvenius, made during the period of 2008 to 2012. It is the first
book in a series of books focusing on the speedpaints and digital
sketches made by Torvenius. The speedpaint technique is a type of
digital sketching where the artist tries to nail down as much in an image
as possible, in a very short time. The majority of the images in this
collection are made on a timer set to 20 min. Some even faster than that
and some up to 30 min. All of these images are created from a blank
canvas and with no predetermined, fleshed out idea, sketch or agenda.
The content herein, is the the result of spontaneous and raw creative
Embark on a visual journey that takes you through fantasy landscapes,
greedy bounty hunters, monsters, sci-fi weaponry and broken cities.
Regardless if the image portrays a run-down city, an inviting ghost or
a female techno-wizard, they all share the dark undertone and
playfulness of Torvenius aesthetic style."
154 pages with the majority in full cover. Soft cover with a matte finish on the cover.
