March Of Robots: The End

March Of Robots: Time

The end already. The last robot that I drew for the challenge, which you can see above, is very representative again.

Yep, I got so far behind that I gave up. There were already many things on my plate, in my work- and personal life. I didn’t seem to be able to keep up with my own schedules and I had to give those other things priority.

Project updates

It is a pity that it didnt work out for me this year with the March Of Robots, which was supposed to be the first time for me to participate. But its okay. Things needed to be done and I can now fully focus on my projects again. I didnt even find time for my personal project Skymir lately, but I will get back to it eventually. I am looking forward to get my new ideas for it out there and to have Hilda, Yngvild and Bjolan go adventuring again.

It will be new, it will be different, but Im sure its gonna be pretty cool Once I have the short story for Ucomix finished I should be able to make some free time to work on Skymir on the side again. And the short comic was supposed to be finished by the end of this month. I am hoping to get it done this week, if nothing unexpected keeps me away from it.

The Interior Design for my Comic

Making Of / 10 April 2020

As promised today I am gonna talk about the interior for my comic. Which I built a 3D model for, like I did for the outside of spaceship that I showed to you in my last entry.
Above you can see how I used it for the comic. It’s still all drawn but yes – it is traced over the model. Which is coming in really handy. 

Why it’s so good to have a 3D model...





The Spaceship Design for my Comic

Making Of / 06 April 2020

As I mentioned in this post about the story’s main characters and their designs I did 3D models that are supposed to make the drawing part easier later.

See more and what I made of the model on my website.


March Of Robots 2020 #3 / Don’t panic

General / 23 March 2020

Oh, it’s been a while. The last time I didn’t know yet that there was gonna be this epidemic and that people would hoard toilet paper and pasta. But here we are. I am fine and I hope you are too. The social distancing part goes rather easy on me, I like hermitting anyway.

Yet I managed to fall waaaaay behind with those robots. I’m going to post some anyway and I’ll try to catch up again. But I’ve also started one of the two comics and there is another project I’ve been asked to work on. Which I sure want to do! Plus, let’s not forget about my personal project Skymir, involving Hilda, Yngvild and Bjolan. I’m craving to go on with it but right now there are too many things that require to be tended first. Also in my personal life. But I have lots of ideas and ambitions.

March Of Robots: Tool

My “tool” entry might not be the most interesting, but it was fun to do anyway

March Of Robots: Bomb

“Bomb” is so far my favourite, I must say. I am pretty satisfied with the result. Poor little robot though…

March Of Robots: Substance

Now “substance” is somewhat different. I’m giving credit to my beloved girlfriend and her ideas and to my friend Luís for providing me with reference photos.

I shall post more. I’ve also been playing some stuff on the side, really not that much but I took screenshots. And then there are still the 3D models I’ve made. So there are things to blog about. I’ll put a reminder in my phone so I stop forgetting to post! That should work.

Don’t panic (Covid-19)

I wish everyone and their loved ones strength and health and remember to be careful. Always wash your hands properly, keep distance from people and such.
And please do not hoard toilet paper and stuff. There are other people who need things too. So please be considerate. Don’t panic, that won’t help anyone and only leads to bad decisions.

March Of Robots 2020 #2

General / 07 March 2020

Here comes the second set of robots for the March Of Robots challenge. I fell one day behind though. Maybe I can catch up over the weekend, I’ll see. I put more time than planned into the “shock” prompt. But since it is a challenge I wanted to do exactly that – challenge myself -, in that case not just with the robot but also with the lighting.

March Of Robots: Shock

For the following one I wanted to do my friend a favor by doing a “happy” robot, he said not all of my robots can be depressed. Well, technically they can, and they’re not all depressed. But not happy either, that is true. So I made this happy robot for “three”.

March Of Robots: Three

The next one is what I did yesterday, actually day five. The prompt is “island” and I did the next best thing that came to my mind, which was a coconut. When I started drawing it I was already very tired from a day full of work. I am at another 3D model currently and it is at least almost finished now. I just felt like doing nothing but at the same time I didn’t want to fall behind further. So decided to draw the island robot anyway and just tried to make it a little simpler to not spend too much time on it. That might be one reason why the cocobot is making that face, more likely though it is but a representation of myself when I drew this.

One of these days I also want to share the other things I’ve been working on meanwhile, which are the 3D models. Two so far, one being a little more complex. But it will help me tons when I draw that comic, I might even likely re-use them for other projects. I’ll start with the comic next week as soon as possible.

March Of Robots 2020 #1

General / 03 March 2020

This year I’m finally doing it! I wanted to join the March Of Robots challenge since three years already I think but somehow I always managed to miss it.

Comic Character Concept Art

General / 26 February 2020

It's been a while! So currently I am working on comics again. The first that I am tending to at the moment because its deadline comes first is going to be a short story of eight pages.
It took me a while until I was satisfied with the characters. I was also playing around with style a little bit but most of the things went to trash. Today I’ll post here what I have left to show.

Albert Nobbs Drawings

General / 24 January 2020

I live! It lives, the social media! Or at least I am reviving mine right now. It was quiet, very quiet, if not too quiet.

I deleted all my old blog entries and starting over here. I’ll try to post more often than I used to.
“Didn’t she intend to try that a couple of times already?” – yepp. And I have a plan to make it work now. I’ll just write about whatever I want, not about what I think I am expected to write about.

Recently I read about the deadness of blogs. Who still reads blogs? Maybe nobody. And surely not a lot of text. Well, how good that I usually have colorful (mostly at least) pictures.

I’ll begin with something I started in December. Something that was just for warming up and fun.
One of the movies that I watched with my beloved was Albert Nobbs. I’ve been wanting to watch that one since a while. Now I finally did and really liked it a lot.
But poor Mister Nobbs… sigh.

Working on personal project

Making Of / 09 June 2018

Ah, it's been a while since my last post. But well I don't post that often anyways. Besides my current client work(s), one especially, I am focussing on my personal project. It's called "Skýmir" and is a Sci-Fi story consisting of severeal short stories or episodes. Now I have 4 short stories that I wrote this week and a longer one that rather follows the main story line, whilst the others can also be read seperately. Of course I do the designs and other drawings for it, even though it's no comic this time, but a written story. And only for that I started blogging in German again. So I am actually having two blogs. In case anyone wants to check it out, this is my German Blog.

Below - after the video - you can see see 2 of my main characters and a still life that I did for the most recent short story of Skýmir and lastly a cover I did.






  

I'm back!

General / 24 May 2018

Hey there!
So I am back from my vacation in the Netherlands. I had a really good time and also continued doing my daily vlog, if you understand German or if you just want to see the beauty of the Netherlands, you can check it out here.


Above: Very happy me


When I came back I couldn't get myself to start working again for the first two days. I only doodled a bit into my journal. If anyone cares to see...


But today (Thursday) I picked up the work again. One of the character designs that is. Currently I am working on the JAGS (tabletop RPG) Gunslinger character design. I think I am going to keep that for my next blog post.
