Sketching


For the first time in a long while I've been painting (digitally) in my own time again. My work at Trippel Trappel is done and in a few weeks I'll be working for KLOMP! studios again in Rotterdam, animating for their upcoming short "Haring" (which will be dutch in cinema's next summer) and hopefully another season of 'Bad Days'. Anyway, thought I'd post this one, as a sign that I'm still alive.
I basicly started drawing without any plan and ended up with some more artwork for a personal project I'm doing with my mate Tom van der Linden.

New Job!



I was hired this august to work on a feature film at Anikey Studios in The Hague! The film is called Trippel Trappel and it's a 2D frame by frame animated film (classic Disney style so to speak) which will be in dutch cinema's in October 2014.

I started out as an inbetweener, but after a week or two I started with animating. So now I'll be animating 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, untill mid December!

If you'd like to check out some artwork and updates on the film, be sure to visit http://trippeltrappel.blogspot.nl/ and/or like the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TrippelTrappeldeFilm

here's some artwork Wouter Tulp made for this film:

The Sad Roadie

Did this Illustration in Photoshop after a rough sketch in my dummy. Tried some new brushes too, I like 'em very much. And in the bottom right corner you can see my prototype logo-design!

Whistling Biker

Did this sketch with pencil which I photographed and then I colored on the computer. I think I really like this style, so I'm going to do more characters in this style soon I think. Stay tuned!

Lonely Fisherman's House

Another house, on yet another weird location. This time i tried not to go into detail too much, so it's a bit more rough and sketchy.

Holiday sketches

Here's some sketches I've made during my holiday in Belgium last week.

Concept Art for a children's book I'm going to make together with my best mate Tom van der Linden

Gouache Portrait

I decided to give real painting another try after 3 years of just digital painting. So I made this portrait of David Gilmour (from Pink Floyd). I used Gouache and canvaspaper.

The House Inbetween

Here's a concept book cover I did for fun and practice. Maybe someday I'll actually make the book.
What I personally like about it is that it makes you curious about the house inbetween the rocks; why does anybody decide to build a home in such a weird place? Who is this person? The man on the bridge looking down is probably a hiker who stumbled upon this house by accident. He decides to have a closer look....and then: TAM TAM TAAAAAM!.....well actually I haven't figured that out yet. But it's a good starting point for a story I think.

Open it in a new tab to see it in it's original format. Enjoy!

Sketches

Made some charcoal-pencil sketches a few days ago. I really like this style and I think I'm going to develop it further in the future.
