What I show you today is an quite old piece of concept I did for Negaia last year. It is a design of the armor of the albes. A spunky, demon-like race of the fire element. They are living in a “dark-steampunk” city and created the first machines in this world. Their metal is rusty and heavy, but also very protective. Actually I wanted to wait with the upload until this concept is implemented in the game, but I guess it will take a while so I decided to show you guys now :)
If you notice the dates of this and the last post, you will realize, that I haven't upload too much stuff the last weeks.
The reason is, that I'm quite busy with my portfolio. But don't you worry guys, I will post all the work I have done for this when it is finished.
Hopefully I will get a nice position in the concept-art industry.
Besides that I will go for vacation now for one week. Looking forward so much to work on my present projects and to post more stuff soon! I wish you a great time :)
It's such a long time ago since I did my first concept of this character. I learned so much about anatomy and rendering the last
month and just felt like giving this rough creature another try :)
Also I am about to figure out, which views and details are important for a proper concept. Of course it is depending on the kind of project you do the concept for, but even then there are a lot of things to consider. Hope you like this one. More will follow!
Hello dear friends and followers. I hope all of you went into the new year 2017 with a good mood :)
Her comes my first post: Last month (also last year) I was invited to draw caricatures of the staff of the leben&wohnen organisation in Stuttgart. It's a company, which provides living space and flats to old and handicapped people. It was an awesome evening with a lot of nice people and a lot of vine. Thank you for this day! Have a good week, guys!
Third and last poster of our Pokemon-Destiny climatic series! I have no idea how it looks like all over the world, but in Germany we have to celebrate Christmas without snow this year. But maybe this little poster will give you a boost! Hve a nice time all the people you love and enjoy the last days of this very year 2016! :)
And here comes number two of my Pokemon-Destiny Poster series: This time beach / coast environment starring Krabby and some Wingulls. Wish you all a nice Christmas preparation! :)
To make all the waiting people out there more expectant I was commissioned with a very nice task: I had to create three different Posters each presenting one of the climatic situations in the Pokemon-Destiny game. They should look similar in style and should show one Pokemon as an eye-catcher. Here is the first poster of the rainforest. Hope you like it! :)
Hey my friends. As you probably realized, I am creating concepts for the Negaia-Project by Vankenthor for more then a year now! I found myself working in a very nice team! We have a lot of fun together, talking about a plenty of things and being creative in so many ways. I am very proud to present you the release date of the very first alpha-version of our project. In exactly one month you will be able to test what we did the last years. Please check it out give your feedback, so that we know what to improve for the final game.
You will get all the information you need with clicking on this link. I hope you like it!
Here comes Part two of my anatomy madness! First time you find human legs in this pages :)
Hope you like it! Won't be the last part though.
Here I present you a little extract from my last months of anatomy practise. Again and again the same muscles. I used references at first. Realistic anatomy and some examples how other artists deal with muscles and proportions. I will continue and so you will see the next part of my anatomy-madness soon :)
It's Negaia time! For a little tavern in the game I had to create a hanging sign. It should look quite old. It's made out of wood and the picture was painted with white color. What do you think about the final result?
“Hey Lukas! Can you create a concept for a playground for kids with a slide, which looks like a ekans?”. That was my task and I started working on it. The playground should be separated in three parts. The slidetower, the watch-cube and the diglett-tower. I created concepts of all three parts and sketched different views and cuts. The modeler team is working on it right now and I am looking forward so much to see the final result! :)
From bugs to real armor. This nice stuff I created with references from a armor book. Helped me a lot to get more familiar with metal reflection. Also I was surprised what different kind of armors there existed a few hundred years ago.
I worked with black and white pencil on brown paper. I think the lights are coming good in this one :) What do you think?
Happy Halloween by the way!!
A long long time ago I did my last try on landscape and environment thumbnails. I am working on different projects right now and for one of them a swamp was needed, so I started sketching. Actually it turned out quite nice! I got inspiration from photos I took in Thailand, paintings of other artists and videogames.I feel stronger in painting environments now! Hope you like these three swamps. :)
I thought drawing bugs would be a nice idea! Their chitin-armor looks similar to metal and work very well as references for real armor. Such a coincidence that my teacher had a few old bugs I could draw. Just amazing was nature is able to create...
During my drawing lessons I was impressed by this little wooden figure. My topic was metal, so I didn't think about to draw it first, but I realized later, that these nice shapes and edges of this figure are playing with light and shade in the same way like metal does! So I started to sketch this wooden buddy and tried to give the bright and darker parts a little bit more attention. The final work looked quite nice. What do you guys think?
Hey my friends! I decided to take some professional drawing lessons for the next months to get some proper skills in different fields of art. One of my topics was the drawing of metal and it's light reflections. I started with tools and used pencil and black color pen for my work. I don't know why it takes so long to understand the physics and structure of this very special material but I am sure that I will get it in the near future :)
This piece of work is actually a little old, but anyways it's a nice one. I created a few versions of possible cursor designs and worked on those, which very my boss' favourite. The final design you can see here as well. For checking out the cursor in the game just wait a few more weeks until the alpha-version of the game "Negaia" will be released.
I really don't know how long I have to continue my anatomy sketches, but I can not deny, that I improve with every single study. I kind of avoided leg-anatomy so far, but there is no other way than master this field as well! Back to work now!! :)
The people of Hermunduri in Negaia are the humans. The humans element is the earth and so their color is green. Because of the history of the hermunduri, we decided to choose a tree as their symbol on their flag. This flag will be seen in many place of the game. Especially in the capitol of the human race.
First time in my live-Caricature-drawing-history I prepared myself in a special way: I laminated my example drawings, so that I didn't have to worry about every little rain drop. I also printed a plenty of different adress-cards and finally I was ready for the “Hoffest” in Isenbüttel. It was the second time I took part to this unique event. It totally worth it! The weather was on my side and so I was never running out of interested people and I had a lot of work to do for hours. Looking forward to next year already. Thanks for the invitation! :)
Number two of my current challenge. This time I was checking out some ancient Egypt clothes and armors and added a little bit of my own ideas in it. Because of the hot climatic situation the most clothes are quite light and show a lot of skin. Hope you like it!
Since a long time I was looking forward to take part at the education-event in Hannover. I supported a booth, which was providing information about the science of properties. I sit besides and drew a lot of caricatures of interested people. I guess I never sketched this much persons in such a short time! That day was a great chance for me to meet a lot of people and improve my skills a lot.
Nice weather, cool event! Last week I have been in Gifhorn, invited to a little activity of the NABU. Different people providing information material and let the visitors explore a variety of nature habitats and animals. I had my little place like usually and drew the people. Nice event! Looking forward to the next event in Hannover :)
Hello my friends! Today I start my new rubric here on my website: Armor-Challenge. I will draw armors and clothes of different centuries and cultures from references and from mind to learn how this stuff works and to improve with drawing them. First chapter of my challenge is the stone age. All the clothes are made out of leather and fur. Some of the tribes used animal heads and bones. Hope you like this challenge. More stuff will come soon :)
