These double-homages are based on existing works and styles. Pastiche with a twist. Mostly it is classical work, but sometimes contemporary, combined with a pop-culture franchise. The main challenge was to keep the beauty of the referenced masterpiece and establish a relevant, transformative new work out of it.
Android Legacy Series
Personal Work / Commissioned.
This series of original artworks are based on photographs, collaborations with photographers and models and are inspired by literature and movies like Ghost in the Shell and Tron Legacy.
Character and Creature Design
These original artworks are created for clients (mostly) and reflect me raising the bar with my set of tools available. My main focus with creature and character design is Photoshop, Zbrush and Keyshot.
The Ancient Kaiju Project
This ongoing series is based on existing 19 century paintings similar to the "Handpainted Inceptionism" works. The main intention was learning and studying how the old masters used light and brush strokes to their advantages. Again, pastiche with a twist.
This set of images are a personal challenge, most often it is me wrestling with the square-format, composition and impressionism.
These images are based on photographs for reference but the challenge is to have the photo just as a starting point and develop a personal version of what I see in the models, which is often muchly different.
The Dark Realm
This set of images are partially contribution for the "Dark Realm Collective" but also personal projects and mini-series that tackle the dark side and allow for raising the bar in combining digital painting with photomanipulation and 3d design to a novel experience for both, the viewer and me as artist.
This personal ongoing series is a tribute to the female beauty. My understanding of aesthetics demands to show very often strong women most likely from an alternative fantasy-universe.
