This one was done for some Hamburg advertising agency. Huuuuge format – A0…120cm wide!

Monster Family

You’ll be surprised but this one is not a personal project, it’s fully commercial artwork, which means they actually pay me for creating these ugly guys!

Editorial for GQ magazine.

Parents

Parsons-1_small

Editorial for GQ magazine. This material was pretty sad, was hard to illustrate it. It’s about author’s parents death and his feelings about it. It’s about loss, childhood memories and solitude.

Making-of

vecher_making_of

It’s close to 900K image. Please wait until it’s loaded.

I guess I have to give a little explanation here. There is no refining step between “flat” step 10 and “3D-like” step 11, just because there weren’t any additional steps. I just painted all the lights and shadows over the flat color. Step 12 shows the step when I switched to Corel Painter to blend all rough brushstrokes. Step 13 is color correction ( adding more blacks in shadows ) and …the signing:)

I know I usually don’t tend to post here unfinished works, but this sketch I liked so much that decided to share it with the world, which means you people. Besides, who says it’s not finished? I’ve signed here!

I did it!

I’ve made into Animation Mentor Showcase 2009! What can I say guys? It’s was one hell of a surprise to find myself among all these really talented and hard-working people. Comparing to their work my animation looks pretty humble but hey I am in, that’s  what matters. At least for me.

Congratulations, Denis!:)

Finished piece

muscles4_small2

I think it’s been a while since I did something that lasted more than one day. This one took me three. Not around the clock of course but three sessions of 3-4 hours for sure.

By the way, I called him Ricco.

Character design test

baldwin

Usually I tend to avoid tests for my clients because I think my abilities can be easily seen from my works, but this time I decided to do it  because here we are talking about feature animation project and this opportunity is so tempting that I just couldn’t resist.

The character suppose to be a nice, a little bit silly silly but still very charismatic little dictator.
