After doing only value study portraits for a while I thought it was time to try to work in color again. I think I learned something in the meantime!
Reference photograph by the wonderful Toph Wei cosplay :
Koso Keikai, city of vigilance
Built for only the surefooted, The city of Koso Keikai was never intended as a place to relax. It promoted clear thinking and a vigilant mindset. Even though one misstep could be fatal, it hasn't stopped some brave souls to completely find themselves.
Deadwood: Seth Bullock
One of my favourite hero actors; Timothy Olyphant playing Seth Bullock in Deadwood.
Been awhile since I saw this show but I recently got back into Justified. Watching it all again. SUCH good shows!
Portrait value study 2
Doing a relaxing portrait value study before heading off to London to visit EGX. Love doing these. Wish I had much more time for these. Hope you like it

(if you know the name of the model here let me know!)

Game concept
A foliage concept for the game I'm working on. It's a lot of fun to pump out these color schemes and make it look interesting.
Painted over early versions of our game engine.

Psssss Sam.....

How are you doing? I see you are more consequent at drawing then I am :P I know we only talk through DeviantArt once a year or so, but I'm glad that you still keep drawing. Everytime a drawing of you pops up, it helps me get motivated to draw too. I mean, I'm not gonna lose to you ;) 

And at this long period in life it is hard for me to get motivated, soooo I just wanted to say: Thank youuuu :D

Hey Fransien!

Long time no speak ^^
I'm doing alright! I decided to go freelance with my art and I've just started. I'm not getting rich off of it
but at least I do what I love instead of wasting my life away at the tax office :)
Yeah it's real tough to stay motivated sometimes. I have to be willing to go that much further than I feel I can.
It's has intense downs but it it's a very rewarding process in the end.

How have you been? Still doing the callcenter work?
You better not lose to me! I'm counting on you to catch up real soon :D
Furenshi Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2016

Freelance, that I think is so awesome, I'm thinking about doing that too, but with the current situation it is not that smart. 
Awesome that you are brave enough to try it out, I might do that in the future hahaha 

Well I could have been better. But I'll be okaay ;) And no I'm not working at the callcenter anymore for a while now. I've moved to Dronten and I have found a job in the webdesign, but not really that fun as I thought. It is mostly click and drop for sites in the beautybranch, but well it is still better then callcenter work hahaha. 

And what about you? 

No, I will not lose to you mister xD

Wow that is the nicest thing anyone said to me this year! :)
It's so good to hear this from an artist as good as yourself!
I hope this will be a great year! I have some pretty exciting plans and I hope they pan out ^^
How about you? Do you have any plans or maybe even new years resolutions?
