Coat of Arms

(Above) The coat of arms of the Dukes of Steiermark (the Austrian state where I'm from) and my very own understanding / interpretation of it. I made this some time ago. Four years?

(Below) Update: And while I am at it, here is another older piece (I showed this twerp a good number of months ago, but he deserves a 2nd work in progress "shot", don't he?):


  1. hahaha... very funny! great drawing though.

  2. Oh man, I love the rough sketch.. it's so appealing! Great stuff as always Florian!

  3. That is the coolest drawing I've seen in a while!

  4. Your draws look so clean!!.. I am trying to understand how you can do it!!.. awesome!!..

  5. For a minute I thought that guy was drawing blood from someone, but I got a closer look and he was painting a swirl around himself.

    I love the character and that Suessian bird above him!
