2Q3: The Creating Dragons Formula

Update: The sketch above shows the local (in the 2Q3 story) UPS man. And a pretty unusual means of transportation.

This is an early character sample of Dr. Viggo Haidenstaadt.


  1. "Ah, a human."

    Not too many of that breed strolling around this blog, right?!

    Nice one. But be careful with that pickaxe ...

  2. This is truly a great character! I can't wait to see more of 2q3.

  3. Wow! This character is really cool. I love he´s expression so much. The blue-gray tones fits him very well. Amazing lines, amazing color!

  4. Damn, that UPS guy is amazing!

  5. I love your rough drawings and what is even better,you manage to keep those roughs alive when you tidy them up. Not a lot of people can do that. Smashing work, Mr. Satzinger.

  6. Ditto here! What really knocks my shorts off (not physically) is your choice of costumes. Your style of applying clothing really gives your characters that extra spark!

  7. I completely agree with Uli. You don't lose any of the life in the drawings when you clean them up, absolutely amazing. I have noticed you posting on my writing partner Shane Lewis' blog now and again. We only hope we can get one of our projects funded so we can hire you.

    We were in Budapest once together and took a day trip to Vienna - (Shane speaks German). We spent about $20 Euros each on ice cream. Loved it.

    Continued success in your own work. The work has tremendous appeal.

  8. Did you ever think about FedEx?
    Very nice Artwork, like usual and UM is right, your rough and the same time exact stile is always amazing.

  9. Oliver, Derek, Pit, Rodrigo, Richard, Joern, many, many thanks for your comments and complements!

    Uli, Kelly, I really appreciate your rave reviews. I'm flattered and cajoled.

    (BTW: Kelly, count me in!)
