Here's a creature I did for a small artcontest over at, which came out looking rather 'fuzzy'...:)

The rough sketch was done in pencil, digitally colored in Painter IX. More digital stuff coming soon!

My internet connection was down this past week, so I finally had time to watch 'The Dark Crystal', the superb Jim Henson puppet movie I hadn't seen since my childhood. I got alot of inspiration after watching it, which resulted in the drawing below. It came out looking rather chaotic though...:p

The concept behind this drawing is the one from the movie; a forest where you can't really tell foilage from creature, and vice versa. If you have the chance, be sure to check out the artbook of The Dark Crystal aswell, Brian Froud already took creature design to another level, way back in 1978.

More stuff coming up soon, probably some digitally colored drawings aswell :)

Well, I just finished up on the forest drawing I mentioned yesterday, it came out looking quite different then most of my stuff I've done sofar. I usually don't use alot of shading, but it seemed to fit the mood I was going for in this piece. The drawing is part of a personal project I'm working on, which couldn't be more fun.

I also thought it would be a good opportunity to post another environment I did about a month ago, which is done in a somewhat more 'realistic' style. It's very busy though, I shouldn't have drawn in those treedetails in the background I think....oh well. :)

That's it for now, more stuff coming up soon! Oh, and thanx for all the kind comments people, they really motivate me to keep going! :D

Here's an environment sketch I did for a personal project of mine, a bit more stylized then most of my environments. As always, comments more then welcome!

I'm finishing up on another environment ( a forest this time), I hope to have it up here in 1 or 2 days. :)

This weekend I went to 'Burgers' Zoo' (Arnhem, The Netherlands) with a friend of mine to do some animal sketching. We really had alot of fun, below a collage with some of the better ones I did.

Also be sure to check out some of the sketches my friend Patrick did over at , he'll appreciate it. :)
