My muse is still superbusy with artwork (more foxes) and comic, but on weekends we always go out for a walk, stay at an Onsen (Japanese spa) and enjoy the beautiful colors of Autumn.

Here is the the last painting for my big fox commission.
Had so much fun to expolre more and more the different ways to work with polychromos pens combined with airbrush, acrylics and watercolor.
Now I wonder, what comes next...
anyway, I'm highly motivated to work on some more fox and Koi art.

Just in case you are wondering, what I'm up to at the moment, I'm currently working on the third fox commission and since April on a VERY, VERY old project of mine, which is still very dear to me. It's a comic called "Shadowpath" and I started this in 1995 and stopped in 1999. Now I dug out the old pages and realized I HAVE to redraw and finish it as my characters have suddenly decided to jump up and down in my head again telling me, what they did in the past 20 years and how the story will continue up to now.
In fact, most of them were in my head already, when I was 15 or so, they helped me through times, when I was bullied, misunderstood and alone. They were MY very motivation to start drawing and painting, because they wanted me to tell their story and I went on a lot of epic journeys with all of them. Some died, some new ones came in and I feel honored that some close friends of mine encouraged me to carry on and even went together with my characters and me on that crazy journey.
I never spoke here about this story or that I also did and do comic ever. Simply, because it all slept very deep until the beginning of 2017 and simply because I will probably never publish it, but as I said before, I always take good and trusted friends on a ride to join my charactes and me on that crazy journey, where there is no good no bad, just different shades of shadow. ^^
Just giving you a very small snippet here. The original story (Part 1) is actually over 500 pages and still going on and on and contains lot's of characters. I'm now redrawing page 244 and having so much fun ^^
German only... sorry... ^^"

Working on 2 huge paintings (2 foxes) now.
AND I was really lucky with the paper of my newfound art supply store here.
At first, I was a little bit frightened to do a polychromos/mixed media painting on a 90x60cm Format, but the paper turned out to be very smooth and just great for those pens and also for the blending pen.
I will keep that in mind for my next group show in January.
On top of that, I'm very, very busy at the moment. Working on 2 comic projects... covers and illustrations and one more commission.
Will be an exciting Summer for me.
Done with polychromos pens, acrylics, watercolor, postercolor and airbrush on thick paper
Format is 90x60 cm

Here is some more Koi art, done with Polychromos, watercolor, acylics and several layers of black and white airbrush.
Took me a long time to finish. But I learned a lot about Polychromos pens again, especially, that you can paint with them on acrylics and use an alcoholbased blending pen (did so on the lotos leaves).
Size is 27x39cm
