For some color practice, I did this study off a random grizzly picture on pinterest.

Sketchbook Mechs

22.02.2015       0


Last week, I’ve dug out a small sketchbook again because my other one was full. It’s nothing fancy, the paper seems rather cheap and thin. But because of the small size and the quality I didn’t feel pressure to fill it with well “thought out” drawings. So I’ve just kept it really loose and didnt think about the drawings too much which turned into much better drawings than I do usually. It’s good to overthrow your usual workflow every once in a while.mechs2


Some photoshop colors for the tall guy.

To practice getting Values right a bit, I challenged myself with a self-portrait, done in Photoshop using one of Chris Oatleys Custom Brushes.


Chalk Portrait Practice

22.02.2015       0


In my desk drawer I’ve found a set of pastel chalks waiting to be used. I’ve finally got to use them on this portrait of a buddy of mine. Sorry for the long neck, buddy =)

It’s fun to work on colored paper like this one where the paper defines your midtone, you can then work in it with white chalk / pencil or one of those white correction pens. And since you cant make lines really well with these chalks, it was a good practice like that where I had to work more with shapes and values instead of lines, as I tend to do usually.

Just Kidding Logo

The logo for the new KIDNAP and ONCE films Snowboard-/Skateboard-Movie “Just Kidding”, premiering on 29th of November 2014 here in Thun.


Size comparison of the logo. A well designed logo should be legible even in small sizes.

Rough Thumbnails and a colored Gunbot

Been busy the last few weeks with the last bunch of lessons of the awesome Painting Drama course in the Oatley Academy. The course is just plain awesome and definitely something I would recommend to anybody who wants to really get into the guts of visual story telling.

Here’s a bunch of random stuff for you to see, mostly rough thumbnails that might become full illustrations when they grow up.

Beware of Gunbot. He’s got a Gun. And he’s got a posse, consisting of a weird bird and a pig. Tiny feet indian guy isn’t part of them yet, but maybe he’ll join them someday.
