There is no escape from Chaos..

...HO, HO, HO! <epic, grim narrative voice in background>

I'm a little bit afraid that I'm not very good at making christmas cards. Some crazy reindeers came out from the Drakwald forest so I was completely defenceles and innocent.

Late-But-Better-Than-Never Merry Christmas!

Run, Martin! Run!

Yay! I made ONE (shocking!) second test (!) of my in-progress animation! Now, I only have to do the rest of 5760 sec. or 69120 frames in other words. How excating!

War stuff, I guess

I have no idea what I'm doing but to be honest - I like it.

Yeah, it could be better (as always) but it's time for another things to do (like sleeping or study for example..)

Good night!

PS. And the Epilogue

I should work on my study stuff but of course I more interested in shooting epic lasers&horses&shit. Here you have early work-in-progress sneak-peek:

It's going to be kitschy, serious and fu**ing amazing. Yup, that's a good plan for a weekend. I have a Martin Luther King's blessing.

Good night!

Forgive me, comrade

“We're no longer young men. We've lost any desire to conquer the world. We are refugees. We are fleeing from ourselves. From our lives. We were eighteen years old, and we had just begun to love the world and to love being in it; but we had to shoot at it. The first shell to land went straight for our hearts. We've been cut off from real action, from getting on, from progress. We don't believe in those things any more; we believe in the war.”
- All Quiet on the Western Front

Good night,

Some lazy kitty is going to lose his lunch.

Daily speedpaint, 30 minutes ( right here) + few minutes for shadows, color correction and few details. I really enjoy working with more colors in my palette... or maybe it's just awfull weather outside.

Usually I use hard brushes and generally prefer paintings made with visible thick strokes rather than spick and span pics with soft shading. Also when I have to do "analog" painting on canvas I always choose acrils. I like how fast they become dry so I'm able to make new clear layers which don't mix with each other like oils do.

However I must admit that I totally fall in love with THIS GALLERY so I decided to practice "smooth painting" with one soft brush. Here's a result:

I know it's not the best painting in the world but well... I didn't know that I can achive some effects so fast and easy.  In other words - after few years of digital painting I discovered how to use soft brushes :P And moreover... I have so much fun with it. Yeah, that's shocking. It's my STURM! blog not a "smooth&gentle&fancy dancing in the rain". Well, time to take care of my delicate, romantic side.... damn!

Wild Boar

30 miutes + 2-3 minutes for color correction.

I'm satisfied with boar's body, however background is too "random" for me. Keep in mind: draw more enviro, you lazy bastard!

King Slayer

Next speedpaint. Have no idea how much time I spend on it, I was watching a film in same time :P

Maybe not very original but I like it and I'll finish that sketch in free time...

"The role of a Concept Artist is the role of an explorer, tasked with charting a world without sunlight. (...)
You start off with your reference and research. These are well established base camps. They’re well lit, highly populated and safe. The better your reference the better your bearings will be. The artist’s job is to start at base camp with a bag of torches and run furiously out into the darkness. Every doodle, sketch, painting and storyboard is a torch lit somewhere out in the black."

-Matt Rhodes, Concept art behind scenes 

Horrors of war.

I always remind myself this quote when I can't find "the right path" during my concept work. It's all about exploring new and mysterious land, and it's only depends on you how much it'll be fascinating.

I can feel that I'm really close to find satisfying results during my work on Sven and Martin animation concept. I'm looking at today sketch and now I know - here's my new base camp. I also know that's not the final stage but I'm not afraid. Moreover!.. come at me darkness! I'm ready for an adventure!

Daily Speed

I really like idea of the Daily Speedpaint group. +10 to motiviation to make awesome things. 30 minutes for each speed is a gret challenge - mine gryphon rider took me about 36 minuts. Here you have a little bit improved version:


Happy Birthday Geralt!

That's why I love my job in CDP RED :)

Drawing nazis and stuff

First something normal:

"And now for something completely different".... ;)
Or maybe not at all... I'm still drawing nazis and stuff. It's really nice feeling when you can draw lasers, shit and explosions and still you can call it your work. Or bechalor animation. So much win.

Great Reason

Almost one week absence but not without any reason. This reason has four legs, tail, wet nose and beautiful brown eyes. Her name is Kara, gentle lady from animal shelter. :)


Meanwhile I was working on script for my animation so I had time only for few very fast (and mostly crappy) sketches. Of course, the are related to animation so here they are - more Sven and Martin scraps.

Yesterday you met Martin, this evening is time for Sven. Martin's best friend, also my imaginary friend and ruthless Wehrmacht soldier. Of course, he's going to take his place in  my animation too.

He's not the most social guy on the world, so please pardon him his grumbling.

Hallo, Martin!

Let me introduce you to Martin - one of my imaginary friends, and probably a character for my short animation.

 Martin said gute Nacht! Cute guy, isn't he?

From today I have a "ban" for any animation and storytelling workshop from my professor - supposedly my brain is overload with information, theories and my messy cogitations. And to be honest I can't totally deny it. Still I don't know what I want to do for my bachelor animation, even though I have few quite nice ideas. It's going to be a really funny academical year...
