I'm quite concerned with the quality of those new pencils.

BTW: I'm featured in the August 2008 issue of the ImagineFX magazine, as I noticed today. Together with some brill wizards like Gabriele Pennacchioli (DreamWorks), Colin Fix (2K Games) et al. I think I'm in good company :)


  1. That's a really nice piece Florian, those hands are great!

  2. very nice pose, great hands. Is this a character design project?

  3. thanks Florian. I think I'm going to make the jump over to 3D for a little while! I must pick up a copy of Imagine' too - I'm a big fan of your work.

  4. seeeeeeeeeeeeehr gut :D hihi

  5. Oww grreat! I love his face, the colors, the expression,.. I discovered this blog a few days ago, and you really keep me from studying!

    Small question: i was wondering why you use a blue pencil to sketch, does it have a specific reason or do you just like blue? :)

  6. From a "brill wizard" to another: congratulations!

  7. Super play on the lead from a pencil. LOVE IT!
