A little personal painting so I don't get rusty. I wanted to give some color to a creature from my sketchbook. It would be possible to go further with the rendering, but I think I've captured the idea. Maybe I'll build it in 3d if time permits.


I was in Norway in April. I drew this on the outward flight. Breathtaking landscapes there and great myths.

Schleich Eldrador Creatures: Cavebear, Battlecrab and Ice Spider

Since 2 years I have been working for the German toy manufacturer Schleich on the new Eldrador Creatures series. Together with the great art department of Schleich I designed some new figures and modelled them for the production. Three figures I have worked on are already available for purchase. If you are already in a toy store, take a look at the Schleich shelf. More creatures will follow.

With the release of the creatures, I can now show some of the material. I will post them in chronological order of creation.

The fine details must be greatly exaggerated in the model so that they remain clearly visible during the production process.

Final Toy

The originally rejected stone collar concept was later realized by another artist at Schleich.

NPR Experiments with ZBrush2019

As the title says, I did some experiments with the new NPR rendering features of ZBrush2019 this weekend. I played with various self-created seamless textures to create a analog looking style. I hope you like it.
