Rupert Pollard’s Assassin’s Series
Mid 2014 I got contacted by Rupert and asked to do a cover for his Assassin’s Cradle book. The cover itself has a pretty simple setup and I some fun working on it. Mid 2015 then I got the chance to do the cover for the follow up book Assassin’s Escape. We decided to keep the look of the first cover but did go a more complex route with what is to see there. We ended up with a rather cool pic that has elements that surely leave some impression.
Both pics are mixed media and created with Cinema 4d, Vue and Photoshop.
The books can be found on Amazon.
Here we go with the 27th Exhibit of The Luminarium Artgroup. “Organic” was the topic this time and the interpretation of it amongst the artists in the collective spawned some nice ideas. The Exhibit features some of the best digital art that’s currently out there and surely is worth your attention. There is digital art, digital painting, 3d, 2d, photography! Congrats to everyone involved! Fantastic work!
Artworks from all kinds of different fields of expertise, surely are a nice source for inspiration! So be sure to check it out – Organic.
Alrighty. Here we go. The calendar for YOUR amazing 2016 is now available in my deviantart store. Had a hard time picking the artworks for this one since they all work well for a calendar page. A nice look back at the pieces I did this year. Among a few older ‘personal favs/classics’ we have quite a number of new pieces in this calendar this time. For the calendar design I used Vue to create a neat looking cover image and plates for the month pages. Had some fun with it and hope it turned out eyecatching enough. :) Due to the format I had to cut off small parts of the images but tried to keep the main elements in frame as good as possible. I’m fairly happy with how it turned out this year.

Here we go with a lengthy article I wrote about how I approached creating the seven artworks I did for Galactic Civiziations 3. It’s includes concepts, render plates, render passes and insight into the techniques I used. Hope it inspires and may even teach you some things! Feel free to check it out here on Behance.
Here we go with the 26th Exhibit of The Luminarium Artgroup. “Depth” was the topic this time and the interpretation of it amongst the artists in the collective spawned some nice ideas. There are a couple of pieces in there that really make me proud to be a part of it. The Exhibit features some of the best digital art that’s currently on the internet. There is digital art, digital painting, 3d, 2d, photography and music! Congrats to everyone involved! Fantastic work!

Here we have a book of extraordinary quality. And by that I don’t mean the presentation and quality paper. It’s more about the diversity and quality of art that is included in this fine publication. It contains all kinds of artistic fields and artists that define the visual media of today. No matter if games, movies or entertainment in general. No wonder that other editions of the book were nominated for a Hugo award. Quite amazing. This book actually would not even be on my radar if it weren’t for Lauren Panepinto at Orbit Books. Quite a while ago they used my ‘Phoenix Rising‘ piece for the cover of a Simon Morden scifi book. Lauren seemed to really like my picture and submitted it (as well as works by other artists) to the Spectrum folks. With a little luck my picture made it into the book. That was a great surprise. So a couple of weeks ago I received my copy of the book and want to show you some bits and pieces.
And my ‘Phoenix Rising‘ on page 52.

Here we go with two pics from my artwork catalogue have been featured in the recent book release “Gothic Dreams – Dystopia” by Flametree Publishing. It’s a really cool book that gives young folks the perfect introduction into the field of dystopian scifi stories. May it be books, tv productions or movies. Everything illustrated by some really good work by fellow artists from around the world. I even recognized a couple of the artworks. The book’s price is really affordable and what you’ll get is a book that’s printed on some nice thick quality paper that perfectly serves the artwork it presents.
