Hello, my name is Philipp and I'm a concept artist & illustrator.

I love science fiction, open source, Linux, and VR. I paint in , model/animate/render in , and design in VR with . My non-client work is by-sa. Lefty, vegan, life drawing lover. Occasionally nsfw art.

Hit me up if you have questions or requests! ❤️

Since I’m now surrounded by snowy mountains in my new hometown I guess learning to paint snow and rock is a must. I’m still in love with bright blue shadows. Painted in

I love studying cinematography, good films are incredibly well crafted and composed – they can teach you so much about image making. Here are a few resources I use when looking for movie frames to paint:

Do we have any artists currently living in or even around here? I’m slowly extending my local artist network here, but since I moved here during lockdown it’s been slow progress. Get in touch if you want to connect, or pass it on if you know somebody – making art with friends and making friends through art is the best!

This time the water and waves worked out a lot better, I especially like the light coming through them from behind. Anybody else want to chill at the seaside? Painted in .

What’s your favourite artwork you discovered today?

I’ve signed up for Jama Jurabaev’s “Concept Art for Movies” class and I am so hyped, ngl. Can’t wait for next week to get started, I’ve cleared my schedule and am looking forward to taking things to another level. Jama’s always been a great inspiration and I feel like this is a dream come true. Let the grind begin..

Have any of you ever tried working with art agents/agencies? Would love some insights and experiences, I’m very curious about the topic but know basically nothing about that part of the industry.

Working for and with people who appreciate you and your craft is such a positive experience, don’t settle until that’s your everyday reality. Just keep moving and working at it, it is possible and well worth it.

Waves and water are so difficult. Originally wasn’t very happy with this one (and it was so difficult to paint), but I like how it holds up when viewed from a distance/zoomed out!

This is actually a place that rents out old timers and military vehicles for films, but I’ve found it to be a real treasure trove of reference for drawing! These kinds of gems help so much with improving my mental visual library and are much more interesting than generic search engine image searches. film-autos.com/

I’ve sent out tons of applications over the past years, more than 100 worldwide in the most recent run alone. Most of course never get back to you, some send short rejections. But a small handful give actual, useful feedback and tips! These are the people I want to work for, they give me hope, a guideline, and, most importantly, show that they really care.

Trying to work on making dull references look more colourful and lively, and bring back some texture into my paintings. Semi-successful, it’s a lot more friendly than the ref but I think it could have been pushed even more. :) Created in

Black and white photography is fantastic for painting studies to learn about composition and value structure, it always blows my mind how clearly these shots read. Would love to achieve that level of appeal and structure in my paintings some day. photographyoffice.com/blog/201

This is one of my favourites out of my recent paintings, it took a while but I’m pretty happy with hue shifts and the sunny vibe, feels very warm and free. Painted in

I’ve had this in my bookmarks for a while now: A great template for simple and uncomplicated commission contracts with thorough explanations! It’s not as intimidating as the legalese contracts you (should) have with bigger publishers, while still protecting you when working small time gigs. Check it out and save it for later, might come in handy: reddit.com/r/artstore/comments

When I was a kid I often used to listen to audio books and copy Star Wars characters from comics for hours, completely unaware of time passing. Working my way back towards that state now, sometimes the best way to progress is to just have fun and chill the fuck out for once. :D
