Mr. Pumpkin, animation short concept development...

I am involved in 3D since around 2000 and, for a while now, I am working on my animation short so stuck on in the middle of concepts for it. This is one of the characters I am working on, the one who will be a sort of the riddle guy in this story...



...and its base drawing:

The Lost (Mad Dwarf)

One of my works at the beginning of 2012. Brainstorm of "mad dwarf" in the cold mountain. It was sort of challenge to make this kind of environment and him with just few colors. Alone, above the mist. Lost in icy mountains.... The work is huge, A3 on 400dpi and here is just one 1:1 detail to get a picture of canvas dimms. I hope you like it...



Detail:



Student drawing


One more drawing I like... made during class at Academy of Fine Arts. The model that students had to draw that day was not interesting enough to me (or I was just lazy, I dont really remember) so I choose this nice silent girl who was sitting in front of me. I used blue and sepia pastels on big rough paper.

Spooky light and contrasts



Spooky light became kind of my obsession so I continued painting with oils and this one is one of my favorites. Painted traditionally with oils on canvas representing ancient warrior on cold rainy night. I really enjoy making this. Simple heroic pyramidal composition with dynamic lightning, strong contrasts...

Tribute to Frank Frazetta, R.I.P.

Frank Frazetta. Who didn't hear about this master of fantasy art??? This drawing is one of my tributes to him and his art style. He was always inspirational for me, showing one of the strongest approach to illustration on traditional way. Man whose artworks were done during one single night... For this drawing I used 0.1 - 0.5 ink pen for fine details on nice A4 paper.

One angry afternoon during the war


Drawing done again during the aggression on Bosnia 1994, fast and symmetric... just one more comic illustration of werewolf. I was very angry and sick of war this day...

Drawing from the trench, smallest of my collection


I have to start with something and I decided to post one of my drawings done in the trench during the aggression on Bosnia 1993. Its not my first or some revolutionary work but, I like it. Its simple, small and done with almost empty color pens on some old paper during few, very difficult hours, on the front line...
