Two older quickies

Some time ago,Roberto recorded a video of him doing a quick pencil sketch (timelimit was the length of the song "troy"). You can watch it here. I painted over the sketch. It reminds me of a character from "Asterix & Obelix" on steroids or something.



I also painted my good friend Benjamin some time ago. I had a crappy Fotoref (with flash), so it's not the most original thing ever.. it was more of a warm-up sketch.
I screwed up the glasses..



If you like wacky electronic music with beeps and boops, check out Crystal Castles, some of the stuff might cause a seizure so be careful, but make sure to give their track "Air War" a try. You can download it at their myspace page. Do it.

Ok, I'm off to partaaay. Have a nice weekend.
Jonas out.

Thunderdoooome...

I finished my Thunderdome picture a minute ago. I really can't work on it any longer and when I notice that I'm just pushing pixels around it's usually the point where it's best to just stop and call it a day.

The topic was "the escape"..

Please click the image, it doesn't really make sense to look at it at this size.



It started out quite different from the final version.. the colors where warmer, the whole image was very... comic-style. After a few hours, I didn't like it anymore so I changed it. I'm pretty happy with the final painting.

checkitoutcheckitoutcheckitou....

Two pages from my sketchbook.





Tomorrow, I'll meet up with a bunch of guys from different forums. I don't know any of them, I hope to find some people who like to draw.

Marko Djurdjevic got a blog, go check it out. The guy actually lives about 15 minutes from my place now, small world.

James Jean shows how he works his magic on a Fables cover, go check it out!

Three new links on the right, Ondrej, Tonci Zonjic and Maxetormer. Go check'em out..

Currently, I'm listeing to The Blow, especially their track "Parantheses". Click the link.

In case of boredom, visit Shawn Barber's website (he is awesome) and go to his links, it's probably the best collection of links I've seen in a while. Great art and stuff. But make sure to look at Shawn's art first if you don't know him. If you do know his art, go check it out anyways.

That is all.

Astronauts rule.

I've been obsessed with astronauts lately. I bought this awesome hoodie with astronauts on it some time ago and I can't stop thinking about astronauts, because they are sweet. I'm actually wearing that hoodie right now. It's the only thing I ever wear lately. Besides pants. I even got my buddy Max to paint astronauts so there is no denying the pure awesomeness that is astronauts in general.
So I did a quick sketch of one of these nerdy heroes today.



I watched an interview with that German guy who's in space right now and they asked him if they were allowed to watch movies up there. He said they had "Apollo 13" and "Armageddon" among others. I thought that was hilarious. Who'd want to watch a movie that's all about a desastrous space mission while being on a mission in space? Astronauts are so badass.
