Self Portrait

Well, I definitely have some quirks...

Update: Here're some additional recent rough extracts from the same sample scribble for a bigger sujet titled "draw tank"... 'hope I'll finish that sometime soon:


  1. Hey Florian! Great, as always! you're an amazing artist, really really love your sketchy looking style.
    Wich size of intuos are you using? I always used the small ones, never got the chance to try one of the middle or large ones, but I think that since my currnet Wacom is pretty new, the next step should be a Cintiq.

  2. Hi Florian,

    ahhh it´s sooo good to see you working traditional again. All your work is awesome. But the strokes of prismacolor pencil are so rough and that´s what I like. Hope you upload this crazy critter in a desktop res. This would be awesome ;).
    Besten Dank. Dein Stil ist eine wahnsinns Inspiration für mich. Beste Grüße Zapf.

  3. Ha-Ha!Cool Self Portrait Florian!:o)

  4. Javier, cheers!! I'm using one of the middle ones. I've a Cintiq here, too... but the funny thing is, I still prefer to work with the Intuos than the Cintiq.

    Zapf! THANK YOU! Vielen Dank fuer das tolle Feedback... um den Critter in Bildschirmgroesse werd' ich mich noch kuemmern ;)

    Andrei, cheers! Your last post was jaw-dropping beautiful...
