You are a superhero!

For some time now, I’ve been turning my friends into comic book superheroes. This all started when I was trying to think of what to give one of my friends for her birthday. So after a very funny conversation about what kind of powers she would have, right then I figured out what my present to her would be. After that, it’s just became interesting to do the same for other people and I saw that people really enjoyed seeing themselves portrayed like this. There came a lot of requests, but for now I only worked on a birthday-basis. It was also a great opportunity for me to learn more about ‘super-human-anatomy’, inking, coloring and comic book art in general.
It's also a lot of fun to hear how different people few themselves, what kind of talents and powers they have and what their idea of a superhero is. My goal is to translate that image on canvas, capturing the essence and heroism of that person. Each one custom made, and varying from the previous. Below you'll find a collection of these superhero portraits. (O yeah you may also find mine there somewhere):

What you get is: A portrait of you or someone you hold dear ( (boy(girl)friend or someone in your family )as a superhero from a comic books (like batman, superman, you name it ) . The suit, the colors ,the equipment, the  weapons and superpowers are completely based on your character, hobbies and talents. The medium is mostly up to you.
You'll getit  digitally (nice profile picture for social media), or as a poster or a t -shirt! (Or all three).

Speed Paintings

Hey guys! It's time for another update! It's been a while since the last post, but I didn't sit still.Starting a "one- man company" is a lot of work (especially the papers) and I didn't have a lot of time to practice and improve my skills. But still, I've managed to practice some speedpainting. For those who don't know, speedpainting is a style of digital painting, where you give yourself  approximately 1 tot 2,5 hours to put something on your canvas. Most artists use it to set up a basic idea or just for practice. Some of the concpet art in games and  movies is also done using this method. It's been very challenging but also a lot of fun. It forces you to look better at your references and  all roudn you.Also working with a timer is kind of liberating. Without further due here they are:

"Arrow" fan art

Here comes another update!

So life has been a little crazy these days. Me, becoming a freelance digital artist involves a lot of paperwork and management (skills which I don't really posess). But I've still managed to find some time to get some art done. I am beginning my collection of fan art. The idea behind it is to create posters for different series, that I watch. This is also a great way to learn about lighting, composition and human anatomy:
The firts one is that for "Arrow" ( if you don't follow it, then you're seriously missing out some cool action, hero action and awesome martial arts fights). I wanted it to be gretty and yet colorful. I was going very back and forth with composition and character that I wanted to use. I've decided to focus primarly on characters which Oliver Queen ( played by Stepehen Amell) encountered during his days on the island. In some way every one of them defined Oliver. And also knew I wanted  Slade Wilson a.k.a Deathstroke (Played by Manu Bennettt) to be in it

Below you'll find  some sketches and pictures of making of:

Concept Art for An Upcoming Project

So it's been awhile since my last post. It's been quit busy here. I've been working on three projects and i'll post results as soon as they are done. One of the projects is a collaboration between me and another art academy student. He wrote a beautiful story years ago, and ask me to collaborate with him in bringing this story on screen as an animation.  First we needed a storyboard, animate it and then, we've started with some concept art. Below, you'll find some results of my speedpainting/concept art. Most of these were made in one hour, using Photoshop CS 6 mostly with one brush.
