Character Design (Ched) – Final –

Hello and good evening.

Here he is again. probably done, maybe. I will check him out again tomorrow and decide. For today thats all, as usual no photo use (except as references). Oh, I also recorded the process. So I hope to make a new YouTube video of it! It would be about coloring!

Muscle packed back study

Today was a relaxed and lazy day. I was reading and playing and now all I have to upload is this study that I drew into my sketchbook.
It is a female muscular back by the way. It's my first moleskine sketchbook and I used a mechanical pencil, my old and dusty copic markers that I haven't used in a while and some white correction fluid.

Character Design (Ched) – WIP I –

Hi guys,

this time it's really a character design. It's still work in progress but so far so good, right? But right now while I am writing this, I think that I put should one or more far away spaceships in the background. As usual it's going to be Sci-Fi, but that guy lives in the desert in the slums. Tomorrow I'll go for the shading and rest of the coloring of course. But for today that's all I've got.
Hope to see you tomorrow!

Spaceship design

Hi everybody,
instead of a character as I first thought, I painted this spaceship. Oops! Built a model in ZBrush first and then painted it over in Photoshop. No photos in use. For the background I used custom cloud brushed, water color brushes from the internet and splatter brushes. Hope you like my spaceship concept and maybe next time comes the character.

Shotgun Design

Good evening peeps,
my shotgun is done. Somehow I was in the mood for something golden. For my personal project I created some fake brands, so the logo that you see in the top right corners is from one of these. I hope to do more on that one and also series for the other brands that I've created so that each of them will hopefully have their own design language. Did this gun as 3D model in ZBrush first (but it's not really usable for anything else, it's pretty messed up, oops) and then painted it over and colored it.

Shotgun – Work In Progress –

Hello there,
today I have a shotgun for you. I ran out of time today so it's only a work and progress. Also I have to think about the colors, I can't decide yet.

Yamete project cover - Final -

Good evening dear readers and visitors,
this seems to be the final version for the "Yamete!" yaoi manga anthology story. Again, it's not my story, just providing illustrations to one of the stories. It's a bit of a pity that it will be printed in greyscales, but I really had fun with coloring this. Okay, except or the hair. Why is manga hair never fun to draw? I think the aquarelly effect turned out nicely. I used different aquarelle-ish brushes for this effect. Now there may also have to be a title printed on this, as it is the cover. But it's not sure yet because there is also another possible place for the title on the page after the cover. Just wait and see. Or as we say in german "await and drink tea". Wich is weird because most of them seem to prefer coffee.

Yamete project cover - WIP II -

And the Yamete project character design continues! Oh, hello by the way! Uh oh, did I really not post anything since nearly one week? That's bad, I didn't really recognise that it's been so long! Well as mostly, I wasn't doing nothing. I finished the illustration that I was working on previously and then I started something secret. Nope, I won't tell, sorry about that. But I hope you like this work in progress from today. It's the main character being the cover motive and I want to make it look a bit like a traditional piece. Anyhow the image has to be greyscale in the end, but who cares if I do a colored version anyway. I can still desaturate it when it's done. If you want to see the line drawing only, check here.

Book Illustration – Work In Progress –

Hello again,
here is my next WIP, it's for a book and maybe probably I should not post the result of the illustration (final image, I mean) before the book is out but some steps may be allowed I guess. Well me and drawing children, something that doesn't happen very often but it's a challenge. Kind of. Just this time I have to take care to make the face look soft. Can't ignore it just because I like edgy faces, right? But it's on a good way I think.

This is work in progress too, obviously

Just Another Work In Progress

Yes, another one. I started this a while ago, then didn't work on it for...maybe weeks? And tomorrow I have something else to work on again before I go back to this one here. hm, yes, basically I have a bunch of stuff started that wants to be finished, other things wich have higher priority too and things in my mind that I am already planning for when I am done with the things I started. At least it never becomes boring that way.

Yamete project cover - WIP I -

Arrrrr!! I mean good evening.
Good that I am done with the lines, hope the author gives me an okay with this one. Will have to send it to her. So...this is a work in progress for the cover to her story, wich is one of the stories in the "Yamete" anthology book. That guy is the main character. Maybe the background is too much...but I don't plan to make it pop out by coloring and shading it equally to the character. But not sure yet, nothing is fixed, everything is open.

Post-Apocalyptic Character Design (Final!)


Hello and good evening!
Yes, this is a good evening, because I think I am done. I will wait for tomorrow and check it out one last time, if there's something I want to work on a bit more. But for now I am good. Hope you like it, this is a portfolio candidate. It has about no photo textures. There are textures on the cape and on the pants, the pant's texture is done with a standard Photoshop background-pattern, the cape's structure is done with a customised brush but from a standard Photoshop background-pattern. Not sure if that's any interesting, but I say it just in case.

Post-Apocalyptic Character Design IV

Oh, hello!
Now this is the sketch for my character design/ post-apocalyptic scene painting. I wish I could have brang it further today, but there was not enough time left. There will be some lonely torn buildings in the background as well. And I think she still needs a bigger backpack!

Post-Apocalyptic Character Design III


here come the ladies. Hard decision, will I ever decide? Yes, I should. But not today, I really need to take my eyes off of them until tomorrow.
So, do you have any favourite(s)? I still may change the hair color of the chosen character later. Maybe. Yes, probably I can't resist it anyway in the end. It's just that I need to decide for a face and a hair style. Yes. I spent almost 6 hours today with female faces, trying around, changing bits and bits and moving noses, mouths or eyebrows around. Actually there was a 4th character but in the end I screwed her, because she doesn't fit into the role that I am thinking of.
