Old stuff


Some conceptual work I did for GameHouse. Never been put into production though....

Meet Mocci


Meet Mocci from The Wonderful World of Mr. Sweed.

I decided to begin character sketching on the little guy. I felt he needed some more extreme facial features because I want him to underline the main character's emotions. So BIG ears and a magical tale.

Mocci has been in the big guy's family (haven't got a name for him yet) for a little over 320 years. And not without a reason.

Every once in a while the ripe berries from an almost extinct plant spread a scent that puts some sort of spell on Mocci. He gets in a trance and he transforms into something very special with very special abilities. This is Mocci as he gets into the first phase. Check him out.

The Wonderful World of Mr. Sweed




My first visual acquaintance with The Wonderful World of Mr. Sweed. It's a story situated around the mediterranean sea. I'll tell you more about the story as my blog progresses. Hope to update some more soon.

color sketching part 4

color sketching part 3


I turned this little sketch into color last night. Maybe I'll do another pass to make it a little stronger and maybe more interesting. Original drawing done by Dirk van Dulmen.

real baa's and mehs

Just a new post to keep the blogblood running. It's funny, I thought I'd do one piece every week, but that's not as easy as I thought. Anyways...this one is just for fun.

color sketching


Like I said before. Trees. It's not because i like 'm that much-I do-but it also gives me the opportunity to play around with colour and mood. I'd like to do more of these little sketches. Stay tuned!

equilibrist




Back at the office...I promised I'd start my blog with a tree-sketching and painting excercise but instead I wanted to do something that reminded me of our short but well earned holiday. Just a couple of days ago I tried to walk over a chord in "Klein-Zwitserland" which is a fantastic playground. It was hanging next to a circus and tied between two trees and some 30 cm above the ground and I almost walked all the way to the other side of it. I heard my wife and daughter scream -while my other daughter bounced off the chord when I jumped on it- and because I was cheating because I touched the ground while I was walking over the chord...anyways...

btw...the jumping and bouncing part didn't really happen...
