Thies : Waves Of Steel



The lonsome metalsurfer on the highway to shell...

If you want to create an optimal metal band name or song you have to combinate terms like:
blood - fist - iron - hell - war - skull - leather - pain

(e.g. Ironfist, Leatherblood, Hellwar or Leatherfistbloodpainwarskull)

Don't try this at home!

Cheers,

Lutz : Pussylover



Wenn man das 10 min. Ding durchziehen will, bleibt keine Zeit zum Schummeln!

Bei der Gelegenheit kann ich gleich mal ein paar Wünsche erfüllen und reine Liebe zwischen unterschiedlichster Lebensformen darstellen.

Nein, das war nicht der Wunsch des Inspektors....

Ich hab das skizziert wärend ich bei McBurger (Lindens McDowell) auf mein Cheesburgermenue gewartet habe!

Echter geht's nicht!

Olf : Ten Minutes ... Three Times!

















This week is themed 10-minute-drawings. OK. So I downloaded a freeware stopwatch, took my sketchbook and sat down at the desk. Sharpening the pencil. Concentration. And START. Well, I actually ended up doing a whole bunch of scribbles. The first ones took a little bit longer. But these three were done in about ten minutes per picture. It was actually quite fun! And I learned one thing, a ten minute drawing doesn't take much longer than ten minutes, ya know ... It's the scanning and stuff what's really time-consuming!

Cheers,

Olfie

Marie: Zombie rules

aus einer Serie zu einem Buchprojekt über den Schwarz-Weiß-Kultfilm "Night of the living dead" (1968). da machen Zombies Spaß: sehr reduzierte, grafische Bilder, starke Schatten, extreme Perspektiven – und gar nicht gruselig...(und bevor jemand fragt: der Typ vorn ist NICHT Steve Urkel)

Series of 3 for american book project interpreting black-and-white movie "Night of the living dead" (1968). very minimalistic images, cut-out shadows, strong angles – zombie at its best. (AND: the guy in front is NOT Steve Urkel)

Lutz : Ein Herz für Tiere


So, nun ist die Katze ausm Sack und macht die härtesten Kerle Butterweich.


Du gibst mir zu Essen und ich gebe Dir die Illusion von Zuneigung.
-Wenn Du Liebe suchst, kauf Dir'n Köter.


Und denkt immer dran: Nach dem Streicheln Händewaschen nicht vergessen!

Thies : my neighbourhood ...(North-Linden)




Some guys from the homie gang just in front of my bedroom window. They are babbling about kittens, chewing gums and their skin pigments almost the whole night...

Olf : Private Eye!


"Ladies of easy virtue, crooks and the police. That's his world. Halfway between law and crime. He's engaged to his gun. And a bottle of whiskey is his only comfort."

Well, something like that.

I did this one using real brush and ink for a change. But I don't know if it looks so different, because I coloured it the usual way - but I tried a different color palette to give a little old and yellowed feel to it.

I'll keep an eye on you.

Cheers,

Olf Marlowe

Special Guest : Florian Satzinger!



Today's special guest is Florian Satzinger from Satzinger & Hardenberg. When you scroll down you'll find the matching surf-tip.

He's from autria you know. Imagine him sitting there in a Kaffehaus, listening to Kreisler-tunes and enjoying some fresh Kaiserscharrn, while he's drawing ... ducks!

This is what he has to say:

If I were a (cartoon) duck I would look like this. Probably because I am the biggest fan of Donald "The King" Duck over here Right after Gottfried Helnwein, of course.

Henning : Tribute to Shelby



Last weekend I read "Die Wahrheit über Shelby" again.
Written and drawn by Matthias Schultheiss in the late 80's.

In my opinion one of the few german comics with international quality.

Now in Theatres : Urmel aus dem Eis!

Ok, we're drawing funny little pictures. But have you ever wondered what the folks of the Bilderwumme do to earn a living?

Illicit Distillation? Bet on the horses? Smuggling plutonium? Selling vital parts of our bodies? Maybe working as a party clown? Or just roasting burgers at MacBurger?

Well it's not that bad after all. Some people of the Bilderwumme and the 30Heimers worked on a movie called Urmel aus dem Eis, which was released in Germany last Thursday. It's a CG children's film based on a well known german book which was turned into a famous puppet series in the 60s. I think it will be rechristened Impy's Island in other countries. (If someone is interested I'll add a plot summary.)

The most important credits are as follows:
Henning Ahlers : Production Design & Lighting Supervisor
Jens Benecke : Lead Stoyboard Artist & Production/Prop-Design
Uwe Heidschötter : Additional Design & Characteranimator Seelefant
Fredrik Kammer aka Kleinpixi : Lighting Artist
Oliver Kurth : Character Design & Supervision
Michael Mantel : Storyboard Artist
Thies Schwarz : Concept Artist

So now it's official. If you're in Germany: Go and watch it!

Thies : Tatoo For Free!


You can follow a lot of crispy burnt skin with strange tatoos on interesting parts of the body in this sweaty hot summer.

So how do you feel about this piece between your shoulders, across your waist or somewhere else...

Olf : The Rookie!




Nothing special this time. I just coloured a computer-sketch I did some time ago. Practising a little painting, ya know? Well, I can't help myself, but somehow I like this young fella.

Hope you like it too.

Cheers,

Olfie
