Bad Homburg

Last weekend I went to Bad Homburg. Felix's hometown.
We visited some sheep on the grassland and I touched their electric fence....waaaah.
Anyways here are some pics of our little vacation.

Sheep are cool!

Our New Home!

Yeees! Today Felix and I signed the contract of the apartment I was talking about earlier. On Sunday we will move to our new home. It's pretty small but very nice.
I'll post some photos later.

Dino Strider

I think we (Felix and I) finally found an apartment. Yey! But we still have to sign the contract. It's a tiny apartment in a town close to Ludwigsburg where we work. The location was nice and it's only 7minutes by car to Ludwigsburg.

Here's a quick painting I did after work!

Painting on a huge screen!


I'm currently staying at a friends apartment. He recently bought a huge HDTV LCD TV.
I used it as my monitor today and did a little speedpaiting on this huge screen! I'll certainly do it again! It was fun painting in that size!
And here is the finished piece!

@ work

Today I went out to look for an apartment with Felix. But the one we found was not the best choice. We will keep on looking for other possibilities. Now we're sitting at work again having a great time.
These are pictures of Felix, Heiko and myself.
Felix is doing "Fur", Heiko is refining the "animatic" and I'm still texturing stuff.
T.T it's so warm in here...

Return

I took a day off from work today and spent almost the whole day at home practicing guitar, doing some Open Canvas with a friend and doodling around in Photoshop....
Hm now it's midnight again and I should go to bed. Or....practice a bit more guitar? ^^v

UV Unwrapping and Guitar Madness

Today I spend almost all day long unwrapping UVs...
I hate UV unwrapping....Tomorrow I'll probably spend the whole day texturing the main character. Anyways this is our room. It has a pretty nice ambience.


I'm practicing guitar like hell every day. Yesterday I had a skype webcam session with a friend of mine. He gave me a guitar lesson through skype. It was really fun! And now I'm trying to play "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton...but it's darn hard...maybe it's a bit too advanced for a beginner like me ^^;
Well well I won't give up!

Glowing Rose

I recently started to play guitar. My left hand and my fingers hurt ;)
But it's so much fun to play an instrument again. I gave up piano and trumped years ago. Now I wanna do some music again.

I'm working hard on the 3D short with Heiko and Holger. I hope to be able to show you some WIP images soon. I'm still looking for a cool apartment in Stuttgart as well.... T.T

This is a little painting inspired by the short we are doing.
Now I'll practice some guitar ^^v

FMX 06

The FMX is over. It was an awesome conference. I met a lot of great people and also a lot of fellow students from the Filmschool where I studied.
There were a lot of interesting presentation! The making of "Kong" and the "Open Season" presentation were supercool!
The weather was tremendous almost too hot ^^;

Just came back from a huge party. The dinner was really great. Since I slept only 3 hours last night...I'll go to bed now...gn8

FMX & "Descendants"

I'm already 4 Days in Stuttgart now. Right now I'm staying at my friends apartment until I find a room or an apartment in Ludwigsburg where I work. I started to work with Heiko on the animated short "Descendants". I will put some pictures online soon.

Tomorrow starts the FMX conference in Stuttgart. I'll spend the next days there.
There will be a lot of interesting presentations and I'm looking forward to meet new people from the industry.



Hayfever is really killing me T.T
