Inktober 2016

Here are my drawings for Inktober 2016!
I chose couples as my theme this year. I was supposed to draw 31 images, but as usual I never really got that far.

The drawings were created with Deleter pens, and I used a small Moleskine notebook this time. It wasn’t ideal for drawing, as the ink bled through on several pages. I’ll have to think of something new next year.

Still, it is a fun exercise. Maybe I’ll make it to 31 next year.

The Art of Magic Artbook entry

These were my entries to The Art of Magic, our collaborative artbook that was released for Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart this month.

We still have a small amount of books left, so if you’re interested and missed out on buying one on the convention, you can still order your copy by writing an e-mail to TheArtofMagic@web.de. We ship worldwide. :)

Acrylic charms

Arisupaints_CharmsI have ordered some acrylic charms to sell at Stuttgart Comic Con and Japan Expo.
Making my own charms has always been a dream of mine!

If there are any leftovers, I will consider selling them online, but for now you can only get them at my booth.
Anyway, I’ll keep you posted.

 

 

 

 

Mystique fanart

By the way, for this year’s X-Men Big Bang – a collaborative fan project – I got to illustrate a story about Raven. I’m just going to leave the pictures here.

Color Me Sanshee

SansheeYes, I know it’s kinda late for Christmas themed art… But the folks over at Sanshee did a fun Dragon Age colouring competition. I entered, even though there’s another entry I’m rooting for to win.

I love the lineart bei xfreischutz, especially Solas’ face. It was a lot of fun to colour this in! :D

 

This ended up becoming one of the runner-ups! Yay!

Inktober

Ah, yes. Inktober, the annual challenge of drawing something with ink every day.
Last year I managed to finish one single drawing. This year I drew a couple more before I got sick and busy. Maybe I can do the entire challenge next year. :)

In the meantime, here’s some examples of this year’s drawings.

Another Palette Meme

Recently I took requests for another palette meme on tumblr; people could request characters and colours. This is what we ended up with.

KaKAO-Karten

Zur Leipziger Buchmesse habe ich mich einmal an Kakao-Karten versucht — dabei handelt es sich prinzipiell um Künstler-Sammelkarten, die getauscht oder in manchen Fällen auch verkauft werden. Das kleine Format ist ungewohnt, aber zum Ausprobieren und Üben eigentlich gerade richtig. Vielleicht mache ich noch mehr davon, wenn ich die Zeit finde.

Halloween & Wardrobe Memes

I took some more requests over at tumblr. For the wardrobe meme, people get to request a character and an outfit; for the Halloween meme there were several prompts to choose from. I use these things as warming-up practise, so they’re usually not very serious.

Colour palette meme

There is a meme going around tumblr at the moment that lets people choose a character they want you to draw, and a colour palette to work with.
I have been asked to draw lots of X-Men (which is no surprise, really).

Silly X-Men drawings & memes

Just some silly X-Men sketches, drawings and memes from my tumblr that have been piling up on my computer.

Ben Whishaw fanart

Some more drawings of Q from Skyfall and Robert Frobisher from Cloud Atlas. Both are beautiful movies everyone should watch — especially the latter. Ben Whishaw is a wonderful actor. My drawings do not do him justice. (Yet.) ;)

Ragnarok Online Fanart

A small collection of my Ragnarok Online fanart from 2004/2005.
Ah, good old times…

Study in oil

Starting a blog has a weird feeling to it… But as this is my first entry here and I promised oil paintings, here you go:

Oil studies on cardboard, all of them unfinished, of course, but we only had 2~3 hours to complete each, and I am a slow painter.
The pictures are taken with my cellphone camera, so they are a little grainy…

The next class starts in October, I can’t wait.
