The lost Books of Calon

The Cover Art of Dominik Saur's and my Bachelor game "The lost Books of Calon", which I have done a few weeks ago in March. The game will be released in June 2011.

Character Concept "Nuzzler"

Here are some of my Concept Arts and 3D previews of the character "Nuzzler". It is the main character of Dominik Saur's and my Bachelor Game "The lost Books of Calon" which will be released in June 2011. I worked a lot on this Character Concepts and I spent many hours for the 3D Model and the Animations (wahh animating is such a hard job^^). I know it doesn't look perfect at the moment but I am satsfied with the result. The only thing I don't like is the texture (which is hand painted). I wanted that it looks like long fluffy fur but I think it looks to smooth (fur is a pain to paint!). But at the moment I am working on the environment and a lot of 3D Assest who can soon be implemented in the game, so I don't have time to make big changes on the model. So my day is full of modeling modeling, and more modeling of caves, barrels and so on^^ In my next Bachelor Entry I will show you some Concept Arts of the Environment :)

Video Walkthrough on YouTube:

Last but not least a funny Picture of the SUMO NUZZLER!^^

Rune Keeper and about Demotivation

At the moment I am very very demotivated to draw or paint any Artworks. Everytime when I try to improve my skills I think my Artworks look still like my older ones. That's so frustrating!-.- Maybe you know the problem about demotivation and Inactivity and so you can understand me better:( I also have to say that I didn't draw so much in the last few months. Actually there is also no time to draw because I am working a lot on my Bachelor Game which takes a lot of time every day. I did some Concept Arts and Artworks for my Game but it isn't really much. But it was something other than I normally do and it was fun (creating creature, drawing Tournarounds, painting Enviros/Levels etc).
In fact the whole thing is at the moment very painful and it is hard to motivate myself. I hope there will be better times and I hope it will be in June after graduation. So I can start painting again with a focus on getting better and better ;) 

Anyway I painted a new Artwork "Rune Keeper" (my first Artwork this year which I think it looks ok). I did this to take a break from all the stuff I am doing for my Bachelor Game. It was an old sketch I did last year and I decided to color it. I am not very satisfied with it but you know why (demotivation blahblah) ;)
