crowded sunset


Der Sonnenuntergang in der Ludwig-Wucherer-Straße hier in Halle zieht Ende Juni immer wieder einige Schaulustige an. Aus der Not eine Tugend machend, habe ich diese einfach bewußt integriert. Was die Aufnahmen letztendlich sogar interessanter gemacht hat.

End of June the sunset spectacle in the Ludwig-Wucherer-Straße here in Halle/Saale gets a lot of attention. Using the giving circumstances I just intergrated the bystanders, what made the shots much more interesting at the end.

made with:
Nikon D5000 (time-lapse)
Nikon A900 (video)
PremierePro CS6 (editing)
Reason (music)

pencil pierre

Here is a preliminary drawing of Pierre Richard for a another caricature of my ongoing project. Since previous post I am trying to find the caricature with the pencil on paper first, before digitally paint the final color version.

Today I did this caricature of Gerard Depardieu. This time old fashioned on paper, it is meant to be a preliminary drawing for a another painting of my caricature series I started this year.

Jean


Jean Marais still impresses me today with his knack for playing several characters side by side, prominently seen in the Fantomas series. So after Louis DeFunès here is another caricature of a well known french actor from the past.

Terence


I just finished the next caricature, this time it is Terence Hill best known as sidekick of Bud Spencer (see previous blog post). It is funny, now I see the other caricatures I made with different eyes.

Bud


After the experience of the previous caricature (as mentioned before it was the first serious one after quite some time) I worked on Bud Spencer, another "companion" of my childhood. Again, painting digitally I had the freedom to change things drastically as the whole process was improvised - as usual. Using several film stills from a video file helped me to find references for certain sections, as there was not one single image that had every visual information I was looking for. The original idea I had in the beginning I discarded for the lack of reference and there is still room for improvement, but I guess it is better to work on another caricature instead!

Louis

What started as simply trying out painting digitally, evolved into this quite elaborate caricature of Louis De Funès.
When I was a teenager there was a time period when I did caricatures quite regularly, but since then more than twenty five years have past. Other interests emerged and with working as an animation artist I probably was artistically absorbed enough. Beside drawing colleagues, I never did serious caricatures, even though the fascination was always there.

Now, having done this painting, I feel quite confident to go on and do more. There are some other childhood "heros" I definitely want to do a caricature of. Do you have someone in mind you would like to see?

medallions













Super Sculpey Firm
Ø 5,8 cm
Info
Last week I made these medallions. Looking for a personal birthday gift I thought I could try to capture my children - from life, what was not that easy. At the end a mix between observation and working from memory did the trick. I always wanted to sculpt a relief like this, it is so close to a coin, what would be also something worth trying out. But this would need much more thinking beforehand.

Letzte Woche habe ich diese Medallions modelliert. Da ich wieder einmal auf der Suche nach einem persönlichen Geschenk war, habe ich die Idee aufgegriffen, meine Kinder in Reliefform festzuhalten - was nicht ganz einfach war. Letztendlich hat direkte Beobachtung kombiniert mit aus-dem-Kopf zum obrigen Ergebnis geführt. Gerade die Ähnlichkeit zu einer Münze hat für mich den Reiz ausgemacht, diese würde im Vorhinein aber viel mehr Überlegungen benötigen.
