Water reflection study

I did this quick study while creating a tutorial on water reflections for deviantArt. It is based on a photo I took during a visit to Hagenbeck zoo in Hamburg, it is the elephant region of the zoo which is beautifully designed to resemble southeast asian ruins (they are Indian elephants).

My Dark Eye characters

I finally finished my roleplaying characters from the Dark Eye setting. The twelve of them will be subitted to deviantart over the next few days.
I used Painter 12's real Watercolor to paint them. I was very different from my paintings with physical watercolours because I work very wet, and I missed the accidents that happen with that medium, but the digital brushes were okay too.

Goodbye, Cthuloide Welten.

I've been working for the past few issues of the Cthuloide Welten, the Call of Cthulhu magazine by German games publisher Pegasus Spiele. Now, the last issue #21 has been released, featuring my works in several articles. These are some of my favourites, and I have to say that especially the monsters came over nicely in the print.
I leraned a lot about working with print media while illustrating for the magazine and met nice people, and I thank editor Frank Heller for giving me this opportunity.
