what are those purple stripes? they're pretty! and even though I adore your work... zulusplitter is kinda right: your pictures look slightly 2D. maybe, if there were more colours (subtly different colours like young-leaf-green and muddy green) in your pictures they would appear to have more dimensions.

Well - those kind a leaves. but just a kind of:) Basically its just for adding some additional colors to break up the greenish tones.
Thats all so sortf of right - but keep in mind that most of my images are more speedpaintings then finalized illustrations. All of them are more to get better and push my skills for composition, color, mood and style.
"The meeting" is one of my more illustrational takes - and it shows way more depth. On top of that - I think I also try to implement taht as a kind of style.
Well - maybe some say, I'll add more details and depth to it :)
Cheers

oh, i'm not complaining. it's just something that i noticed and thought i might as well say it out loud. in reality many "paintings" wouldn't be able to compete with your "sketches". haha

You know what I think I like so much about your work? Everything is so raw and natural... You always go all-out with the scenery, and the colors are so realistic... It looks to me like he's in a wetland of sorts. I'd like to go exploring in that thick of trees and meet some little animal friends. :la: Or some big animal friends... like a crocodile...

Thanks so much for your kind words (again and again).
It way more fun (to me) to do landscapes/environment, than doing characters. I have the possibility to go more "crazy" with colors
and to keep it rough, while painting chars are the entire focus is on details and such things.
:D There will be a lot of small friends and a BIG as well…
just step into it and enjoy what you'll see:)

Best

You're very welcome! (Again and again. XD)
We've all got our strong suits, I guess! I wish that I were better at setting and scenery... I think I'll always be better at the living, breathing sort of stuff. It's a lot easier to put personality into a person than it is to put personality into a landscape! XD But that's why they stick artists like us together in the work field; good balance. (Although, you're still better at creature design than I am.)

*waltzes into the forest* New animal friends! :dummy:

Thats right! And the best thing about it, is that we all could learn from each other.
Hmm - interesting. For me - the opposite direction. To much to care about a char…
anatomy, mimic, gesture and VALUES!!! :)

Will have soon a sneak peek at your works (again :) )

Enjoy :D

Inspiring as always.

Sehr schön :-)
Arbeite mal ein wenig mehr mit den Tonwerten im Hintergrund, damit du ein wenig mehr Tiefe in das Bild bekommst. Dadurch das du meisten (oder in vielen Bildern, so wie ich das sehe) viel Schwarz drin hast, geht dir extrem viel Bildtiefe verloren.

sonst echt gut geworden, ich glaube, selbst den Fischer würde ich nicht ganz so gut hinbekommen ;)

Dank und immer wieder dank!

Na na - hast du deinen screen kalibriert? :) Ich versuch meistens reines schwarz zu vermeiden und arbeite an einem kalibrierten screen.
Allerdings das schärfen zieht ein wenig die lichter und die tiefen an. Aber im normalfall versuch ich reines schwarz zu vermeiden.
Auch ein grund warum ich in Adobe RGB arbeite - da sieht man die farben am besten und später (browser) sieht man das meiste eh nur in sRGB.
Aber du hast recht - ein wenig mehr auge auf die töne könnte ab und an nicht schaden :)

Naja - das glaub ich jetzt zwar nicht, aber danke noch mal für die blumen:)

ZuluSplitter Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012
na aber, aber :D
Ich arbeite mit einem 27 zoll iMac, da werden doch wohl die Farben stimmen ;)

Ich mein ja auch nicht reines schwarz, sondern im allgemeinen die dunklen Flächen die du im Hintergrund immer verwendest...

Arbeite im Hintergrund auch mehr mit den Hintergrund-Farben (im schattigen Bereich)

Heißt aber nicht das er kalibriert ist:)
ab und an mal die eye one software drüber laufen lassen und man erlebt ware wunder:)

OK :) behalte ich auf jeden fall im kopf.

ZuluSplitter Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2012
ja, da hast schon recht :D

Weiß ich noch nicht, vielleicht mach ich mal wieder ein Speed Painting oder so :D
Aber dadurch das ich in Maya noch nicht so drin, dauert das umsetzen echt leider noch extrem lange, bis ich es umgesetzt habe und gerade bei dem Matte Painting bau ich ne futuristische Basis und ein Scout-Fahrzeug :D Gebäude gehen noch relativ leicht, bei Fahrzeugen eher weniger, hab so was halt noch nie gemacht xD Maya kann ich wenn es hinkommt erst seit ner woche :D

I love the shack. (Sorry I haven't gotten back to you yet, my parents are quite stingy with the money at the moment, but I will work something out in the next few days, and hopefully have everything ready by Friday.)
