Spring is coming!

I proudly present: Spring is coming! This is the new painting I was talking about in my latest post. It was a big project: very high resolution (you can basically print it on your wall :), loads of detail and I sat more than two weeks with it from first draft to finish.
An early day in spring: The snow is slowly being melted away by the first warm rays of the sun, snowbells and crocus flowers are starting to bloom, the forest animals are playful and happy that a long winter finally comes to an end.

A Winter Tale

Winter is coming… and with it comes a new painting: A Winter Tale. You find a making of with progress steps and a short video on behance

My Wolf and Squirrel featured in ImagineFX

Check this out. The May 2014 issue of ImagineFX magazine (Issue 108) will feature four of my works (p. 12-13). Wow, I am happy right now. 🙂

Tales of the Fireflies

It has been a while since my last post but today I present you a new picture I worked on the last couple of days. I wanted a fourth piece for the series of the wolf and the squirrel which acknowledges the already existing pictures. In this regard I wanted to show a landscape with close resemblance to the one I created in ‘Summer Rain’, so that the viewer would get the feeling that he or she had been there before.

Faster!

This painting is kind of a follow up of ‘Want a Nut?’.

Red Riding Hood

I found this old painting of mine which I’d like to share with you because it has some nostalgic value to me: It is the first painting I did with my Intuos 4 and also the very first digital painting I ever created. So in this way it was the beginning of a very intense friendship between me and my new favorite medium.
The painting was inspired by a song of Patrick Wolf (which you can find here: Patrick Wolf – Short Story). I am a big fan of fairy tales and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ has always been my favorite.
Looking at this painting today, I’d say it is very messy and a lot of stuff doesn’t really work in it. I had a lot to learn (and still have) but it’s nice to see my progress and development. Images like this show you where you once started and where you are today. <3

‘Want a Nut?’

How would you react if a squirrel would offer you an acorn?

Summer Rain

At the moment it’s up to 40°C out there and awfully humid. The weather inspired me to do an environmental piece which catches the atmosphere of a warm summer day. But instead of picturing the suffocating heat I have chosen to focus on the relief which comes with warm summer rain… with the smell of wet grass and foliage, the fresh air and the beautiful sight of the light refracted by the rain. To make the experience perfect, feel free to listen to ‘Rainy Mood’ on rainymood.com. It’s wonderful and refreshing!
