Warm-Up Sketch; Captain Christmas 2.0

Update (FRIDAY, June 5, 2009): Besides the Toby Skybuckle and StarDucks tasks I'm playing with a re-design of our Captain Christmas character for some action figure plans we're discussing here. Motto: The decent chap-hero becomes an almost invincible superhero. "Almost" being the operative word.

Original entry from Wednesday: Starting with tomorrow, I'm officially back to work at my (more and more digitally) drawing desk after this very time in Florence.


  1. I can't help myself, you do the most appealing ducks in the world.

  2. haha ya it's a fine art, that has appealed to my nostalgic childhood, their use to be so many ducks back then.

    Keep up the great work

  3. If that's the warmup, what was the actual project I wonder.

    Excellent work. I especially like the squiggles :P..... oh, and the duck's pretty cool too.


  4. What a beautifull life you´re having! A master drawer.

    Regards from Argentina

  5. This is good start, I can see your beautiful works again!

  6. i like the depth on the last drawings with the sketched perspective bkg!

  7. You're going from strength to strength. Tolle Zeichnungen, Florian.

  8. Love the design of this character and that sword with the jagged teeth in the blade.

  9. Really Beautiful sketch !!! Really funny!
