Scifi Calendar 2015

It's this time of the year again to post my products for a shameless plug. Beside the usual prints that sit in my store I just want to show you some other alternatives for possible neat christmas presents. If you're a die-hard scifi fan like me... it's surely worth a thought!

The Art Of Christian 'Tigaer' Hecker

If you are planning to invest into something big, then I would like to suggest going for this fine book. The pictures in it represent some of my finest work and are printed on fine quality paper. To make the pictures work in their full glory they are printed on two page spreads. The intended viewing experience regarding my work, which allows the viewer to dive into this selection of rich and detailed environments.

"While I respect the Judeo-Christian ethic, as well as the Eastern philosophies and of course the teachings of Mohammed, I find that organised religion has corrupted those believes to justify countless atrocities throughout history. If I were to attend church, I'd be a hypocrite."

Hyde - That 70s show

"I never know what I want but I know when I'm low that I... I need to be in the town where they know what I'm like and don't mind..."

(Elbow - Station Approach)

"...Just because you know there are people with far worse problems than yours... doesn't mean you don't deserve a piece of that cake called 'luck' too."

(A Friend - 07.2007)

"We may feel that we have figured out a lot of great things with digital, but in reality we are just in the infancy of digital image creation. Traditional painting took thousands of years to perfect. We have only been doing digital art for a couple of decades.

You are all pioneers!"

You've got some of the most beautifully crafted concepts I've ever SEEN in my life. I hope I can achieve skills to at least HALF your level. :o (Eek)

Hehe, no problem... I haven't submitted (if that's the right term) a lot of them yet... so I decided to send some out. =)

tigaer Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2014  Professional Digital Artist

Da fehlen mir doch glatt die Worte... Deine Bilder sind nicht nur auf einem technisch beeindruckenden Niveau, sondern auch sehr ausdrucksstark!! Hoffe mal irgendwann auf so ein Level zu kommen! Muss mich mal in PS einarbeiten, bis jetzt sind alle meine Szenen "am Stück" entstanden, aber da komm ich oft an die Grenzen meines PCs und darunter leided dann wiederrum die Kreativität. Gruss Aron

Danke danke. =) Immer schön zu hören. Aber hey, deine Vue sachen sind wirklich nicht schlecht und brauchen sich nicht zu verstecken. Ich seh da einiges in deiner gallery wo ich mich frag wie genau es gemacht ist. =D Und ggf schick ich dir mal ne frage per note. Zudem hast du durchaus einen blick für komposition. Was Photoshop angeht so kommt es im endeffekt drauf an was du tun willst. Deine reinen Vue sachen sehen schon wirklich sher gut aus.
