Depression

By | Digital Painting | No Comments

A bunch of digital paintings I did for Bilderfest.
They were shown in a short documentary about depression, airing on German TV. I did a couple of other painting as well but I feel these are the strongest. It was a pretty tough job because I didn’t have as much time as I’d liked and drawing people isn’t near my comfort zone either.

Suzanne Award – Best Design

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Wohoo … i surprisingly won an Suzanne award in the category “Best Design” for the SINTIK title sequence at this years Blender Conference.
The other entries were amazing!
My two favorites:
30th Modern Art Days – by Sebastian Lukaszuk
Freshness – by Blue Pixels Animation

It really put a grin on my face when i opened the the goodie package from the Blender Institute today! :)
A bunch of awesome DVDs, a book, and this lovely 3D-printed monkey award.

Ehrenberg Ruins

Last week i went on a hike to the Ehrenberg ruins to shoot some reference photos for future matte paintings – and I thought i’ll try out 3D scanning too.
It’s far from perfect but I’m actually very pleased with the results from this first 3D scanning test.

Finally finished this 3D title animation for a fictional TV-show.
All names except the endcredits are entirely fictional too.
This was my final project at the BAF.

This is an opening title for a talk show for a small german TV-Station. It will be aired one time only.
This was done as a 2–3 month lasting school project in competition with two other teams.  I’m really glad to see it finished. :)

Just finished this short test animation.
We got an introduction in AE in school and everybody had to make a short movie alongside – well, this is my result.
I did the 2,5D parts in After Effects and the 3D part in Blender.
