Well this was my first attempt at braodcasting myself.
Sadly the quality of my Cam isnt that super at all and the first part of the inking got deleted...*****
However, I guess the music could be a little bit confusing for most of the people watchng this video, since it is kurdish music, which is very differnt from western music.
When I draw i listen to that music all the time...probably the reason why Im a little bit messed up in the brain :)

I will try to do more of these videos.
Hope you all enjoy
p.s. in the beginning everything is a little bit hard to view but later it gets better

"Where King Arthur Sleeps"

Page 1
the only reason why the 1st panel is empty is, that there is supposed to be a text. Since ive done such a terrible job on the lettering I will show you the artwork only.

Page 8

This is a unused version of Page 8. Ive been planing on doing all the other pages this way, but sadly my Illustration teacher thought, that it wasnt appropiate.
After almost 8months of waiting Ive met my Illustartion teacher again and talked with him about a project, that I did in june06 for a collaboration between our and a South Korean artschool. The topic of the projects our schools worked on were european and asian Fairy tales.
At the beginning I was very sceptical about this project, and didnt want to work on it, after 2 months or so I finally decided to work on the project too (for some reasons that I rather not mention here)...Im not sure if these pages will be published or not, but it sure was some good training.

Ive searched the web up and down for a good and interesting european fairy tale. after some time Ive found; "Where King Arthur sleeps" a walisian fairy tale, about a boy who leaves his home and meets a man who leads him to a cave in which King arthur and his army sleep in . The story was kind of interesting and I thought it would be a cool possibility to finally ink some of my own stuff.

Since it had taken me so long to finally get on the project, ther was not much time left to work on the story, the layouts and the final pages. Another problem was, that I had to get this very long story into 8 Pages, which was really an artistic challenge for me.

However, after Ive started working on these pages I really enjoyed illustrating them, even though I had to rush the artwork.
No matter what, Im still very proud of these Pages and hope that my next project for my illustration class this semester will be better. I hope you all enjoy.

Batman "Broken City" finished

Ok finally the Batman pages are done.
It took me 2 1/2 weeks of work putting all the time together i worked on the pages (during the time i did the pages Ive been working and had some familiystuff to handle too). It was a lot of fun drawing the pages, and even if I shouldnt get any work with these samples, I can say that it was a very good training for me. Ive leraned how to handle quality and quantity.

Ive woked from the Batman 620 script by Brian Azzarello and it was the first time that Ive worked on a pro Script.

As you can see the pages are very clean, that because Ive drawn the pages on printerpaper first and then traced them. Im not sure if im going to ink these pages, I guess it would be a lot of fun, but Im a little bit afraid to screw these pages.

On a side note, my nosesurgery will be on march the 19th (next monday).

Hope you all enjoy these pages. Let me know what you think and addsome comments :D
All the best,

First Look - Batman "Broken City"

As some of you guys remember, Ive mentioned that Im working on a Batman script at the moment. Ive been really busy lately with work, family stuff and getting prepared for my surgery (which will be on march 19th) therefore I had to keep the art on the low.

This is a doublespread from the Batman script. Iam actually very cool with it, since the script gives the artist a lot of freedom for the first three pages, I thought it would be nice, showing Gotham how I imagine it to be. I didnt want to show anybody is getting shot or something, but rather a situation before or after a crime happens but also stuff like prostitution, gangbangers, drugdealers and lines of sexshops.
Ive been trying to use different angles for the scenes to make it look like we were fly through Gotham and watching all his crimes...

For these pages I started to work with a complete new work flow. I make small thumbnails to get an Idea how the finished page is going to look like, after that I draw the complete page on A3 printing paper and then I trace the whole page via lightbox. This is the best way for me to have the page looking clean and it also helps me to make the buildings look more believable, because when I trace the buildings, I dont use a ruler, what helps me to avoid the buildings to look made up and stiff.
Theres one more thing, which Iam actually really proud of, this was the first time ever I managed to draw one Page a day. The only reason why I cannot do more pages is that I have to go wto my dayjob too and have to wake up at 5 o´clock in the morning and Im coming back at 5 in the afternoon. And if you sleep for only one or two hours a day that can cause some serious issues, which will keep you even longer away from the desk...no bad excuse at all :)

I will try to post all the finished Pages by the end of the week. Tell me if you like it ...
