My fascination with astronauts will never end.

I'm a boy, I can't help it. I also think ninjas, pirates, skulls, robots and videogames are the best things ever.

Vlad and friends

More work for "the project" which is now called "Pjotr".

Here's what we did today.
Julius built a rough traincart interior in 3D over the past few days. Here's what it looks like when you render it in lines:

He then put some rough colors on it and (lazily!) pasted in my concept art for the girl:

Then it was my turn. I painted the characters and the details. The finished image:

It's alot of fun working like that. Julius has a great eye for colors and light and his work saves me alot of headaches. Sometimes we'll pass an image back and forth a few times before arriving at a point where we can call it finished.

I did some more character concepts, too. Not much to say here.

Here's something that could be a poster for the new film.
But it isn't.
Or is it?

Character Designs

Did some character designs for the new animated short I'm working on. First some portrait sketches I did to find a style and interesting faces.

And two guys I put some more work into because I liked them.
Keep in mind, this is very early stuff, so nothing final here, just getting started and finding the flow and all..

Hope you like!

Mood Paintings

Two mood paintings that I can show but not talk about yet. Mysterious!

Julius and me finished work on our short film "Echoes" some time ago.
Ian Dorsch did the music and Jochen Mader did the sound design. They both did a great job and I'm very happy they worked their magic for us.
From now on, every collaborative project between Julius and me will be done under the name "Werkpilot". You can visit our website and watch "Echoes" here:

Recent work

Some recent sketches:

some experiments with mixed media, trying new things:

And two title sketches for the shortfilm before we went and threw everything overboard to start fresh:

Long time no see...

Soo.. here's a bunch of stuff from the past few months.
I've been working on a short animation with my friend Julius.

The character design for the project went from this:

to this:

to finally arrive at this:

I'll post the animation when it's done, it'll take a few more weeks.

Some pages from the Moleskine:

A bunch of creepy old dolls in a doll museum near Hamburg.

Some lifedrawings.. Lynn, ducks, a naked dude..

More lifedrawing.

On the ferry between Denmark and Germany.

Some japanese statues in a museum in Denmark. Yeah, I like to go to European cities to draw japanese stuff.

I also have a Flickr for the less artsy stuff I do in my sparetime.. it's more entertainment/conceptart oriented, so you have been warned.
