2Q3: Caspar Haidenstaadt, The Little One

And while I was at it, ...

I'm in my blue period. Definitively.
Well, seen as a building block - in the abstract - I'm in a red period, but that's a whole new ball game.


  1. I don't know what to say. Something about those loose lines make your work impossible to resist.

  2. Now that's what I call a BIG gun! Absolutely wonderful!

    I maybe wrong, but I think the blue is definely of another kind than in the posts before ;)

  3. Let me guess. He requires some sort of weight buttressed by that hook behind him to help carry the weapon, which, perchance, is larger than he. However, he needs something for that hook to latch onto if he needs to shift the weight of the gun, so maybe he latches it onto himself! So every time he hoists the gun, he has to hoist his butt......wait.......

    Awesome picture anyway!!!!!

  4. Hahahaha, that thing looks crazy!

  5. Florian!!

    you´re blog is really fantastic!!

    I learn a lot just watching your way of draw hands and expressions.

    keep on posting dude you´re great!

  6. No words....just incredible works!!

  7. The contraption on his head, the gun, all great stuff on the lil guy. Terrific work!

  8. love the fake nose and the big mustache! the pose looks like a 70s bass player.

  9. Fantastic gun! Where you got your inspiration?

  10. I love the scale in this! Great

  11. Derek, Oliver, Richard G., Richard O., Juampa, Herbie, Ryan, Flaviano, Joern, Tim, THANK YOU! MANY THANKS!

    Joern, what I had in mind designing it, was a big trombone or bass tuba. If I remember rightly.

    Due to a high workload I will be blogging less frequently, for the next two or three weeks. So my blog will get a bit slow.

  12. Florian, your work is stuning! I love this new artwork and I think your blue period is wonderful! I wish someday I could draw like you.

    Big hugs!
