My 1st Walkthrough Video

Walkthrough & Deconstruction of Valis Licentia


Walkthrough & Deconstruction of Valis Licentia

Alrighty! Here it is. Finally, the video walkthrough to my Valis Licentia artwork. After a short Intro to the picture, I'm trying to explain the scene setup in Vue, as well as how I refined composition. The following segment talks about how the rendered elements made it into ‪‎Photoshop‬ and how it all came together there. It's my first try doing a video like this and (even if it's not a real ‪‎tutorial‬) I hope some of you are able to pick up some stuff that helps you with your own projects. The video is more than 80 minutes long. So, if you make it through it all and don't get bored by my monotone voice... I salute you. =) Beneath you'll find links to start the video at the segment you're interested in.

The Luminarium Exhibit #26

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 9, 2015, 4:42 AM







For our 26th pack it was hard to decide where we wanted to go after our Silver anniversary. Themes associated with myths, fantasy, reality, travelling and literature came along. Eventually we dusted off our brushes, fired up our trustworty desktops and dove into the deep headfirst to proudly present to you our 26th Exhibition: DEPTH.

Peeling away the layers of the surface and seeing what's beneath, a talent inherently nested deep within our artists. It proved a difficult task to reach out to that talent and apply it on a composition and we as a collective are immensely proud of the effort that we have put in this body of work that show what is beneath and beyond.

Fitting our theme, we decided to highlight one of the most important cornerstones in The Luminarium. After 7 years and 25 exhibition we highlight the amazing effort our founder, Alastair Temple, has put in this group to make it the Luminarium that you see before you today. He spoke to Joeri for our featured interview.

Finally, we'd like to thank everyone who supported us and we hope we can enlighten you once more with our 26th pack. Brace yourself and go headfirst into "DEPTH"

Spectrum 21


SPECTRUM 21

The Spectrum book series scores with some really neat high quality presentation, features and art from all kinds of fields and earlier issues were even nominated for Hugo awards. I was lucky enough to be featured in its 21st issue, that came out earlier this year. The artwork featured is my 'Phoenix Rising' piece. Which is awesome because when I look back at when I worked on it... so much time and dedication went into it. So a big feature for it is a great movitation. I did 'something' right with it. =) For detailed infos and some photos feel free to check here: v5.tigaer-design.com/?p=2030


>Gothic Dreams - Dystopia


Gothic Dreams - Dystopia

Here we go with two pics from my artwork catalogue have been featured in the recent book release "Gothic Dreams - Dystopia" by Flametree Publishing. It's a book that gives young folks the perfect introduction into the field of dystopian/postapocalyptic scifi stories. May it be books, tv productions or movies. Everything illustrated by some really good work by fellow artists from around the world. I even recognized a couple of the artworks. The price is really affordable and what you'll get is a book that's printed on some nice thick quality paper that perfectly serves the artwork it presents. For specific info feel free to check here: v5.tigaer-design.com/?p=2004

Need Help - DA Groups

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 12, 2015, 12:23 PM


I'm Confused


Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I need some advice here. Like every artist I'm trying to spread my work as much as possible. The Groups feature here on Deviantart should be helpful when it comes to spread the word. Over time I surely joined like 8 or 10 groups but I'm not able to submit anything to them. Except for 2 or 3. How does this stuff work?! I would love to see if it'll have some impact on the exposure of my work. If there is anyone who can explain this feature to me... any help would be very appreciated. Because right now this 'Groups Feature' seems goddamn useless and I would like to understand how this works.

Thanks in advance!

The Luminarium Exhibit #25

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 26, 2015, 5:45 AM







The Luminarium is immensely proud to present our twenty fifth Exhibition to you, bearing the title and theme of "Silver", as to celebrate our silver anniversary.

In scientific terms, Silver is a chemical element which is known for possessing the highest electrical conductivity; with immensely varying amounts of usage in coins, solar panels, water filtration and of course jewelry and ornaments. Story-wise, it's often compared as the second most valuable material to gold. A value that we take highly, as this exhibition marks our 25th endeavor to bring you extraordinary art, a challenge that we take with immense pleasure and excitement.

With a landmark as this, we expected our artists to push themselves to the limit and beyond. That is exactly what we got with more than thirty original works of art set in varying media, which are worth their weight in silver.
To underline our exceedingly talented roster, we turned the spotlight to Andrea Carecci, AKA Magic Fox, who has enlightened us with his amazingly control of technical and creative know how, and was a logical choice to highlight the growing diversity of artists that we nurture.

We are very proud of this achievement, and we hope that our twenty fifth pack will bring you as much inspiration and enjoyment, if not more, than the twenty four that came before.

Feature and Interview

I just want to let you guys know that there is a really extensive and well researched part about me and my work in the latest issue of 3D Art Direct. Part of my Skyhigh image even made it as the coverart. Pretty damn awesome! This is the second interview I gave them, with the first one in issue 15. Here, for this new issue 38, I have to thank David Haden for his work on my part. He did a really good job. Everyone else... go check it out! Really great artist interviews in this magazine.

Daily Deviation

I also want to thank everyone for the fantastic support and feedback I got from the Daily Deviation for Sanctuary. It's always an inspiring and interesting thing to read the comments and ideas. What people see in a picture. Sometimes it even surprises me. Which is fascinating because I'm the one who worked on the pic, invested hours into it, thinking about all kinds of things related to the picture. And still there are ideas and interpretations out there that are new and refreshing.

It Would Be Awesome!



For a very long time now  I'm selling prints through deviantart here. I'm by far not a print powerseller but over the years I sold a few pieces. Which amazes me, thinking that my pictures are featured in someone's home. That's just great!

Now to my question. If you read this, and you are one of the fine folks who bought a print of mine, I would love to see a photo of it! How you use it or where you use it. Same goes for feedback about the print itself.

So yeah... if you have bought a print of mine, just drop me a mail or send me a note via deviantart. Would love to see what you did with it and if you're happy with it. =)

It would be very appreciated!

Workshop Book Released

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 8, 2014, 5:14 AM


Photoshop Artworks - Die Tricks Der Photoshop-Profis



Photoshop Artworks - Die Tricks Der Photoshop-Profis


Mid 2013 the German publisher Galileo Design approached me asking if I’d be interested in writing a Workshop for an upcoming book release. I previously worked with them on a Video Workshop project which turned out really nice. After a short time thinking about the offer, I sat down with them and talked about what we could do for the book. We ended up with my suggestion to bring interested people a little closer to what’s all possible with Fractals. In my eyes Apophysis deserves more exposure since I find it a very inspiring and creative tool to create some really cool looking stuff. Just today I noticed that my last released Fractal piece was 2009. A far too long time! So it doesn’t surprise me how much fun I had creating the piece I did for the Workshop. The book itself comes in truly top shape quality. Especially the paper quality surprised me and is really worth every cent. Also a big thanks to everyone involved for their advice and help during the writing process!

If you are good with the German language then maybe the book might be something for you.

Of course there will be wallpapers which, I hope, will get a chance to grace your computer desktops! Until then… have a nice and successful year!

Like Me!


I really am a very very very big Facebook skeptic/critic (for all the right reasons if you ask me). There is rarely a week going by where I'm not reading any weird news about what they can do with all the things you post on that site. So I avoided it as good as possible. Recently though I spoke with a couple of friends about it all, and when it comes to promoting my work, even the skeptics among them told me to go for it. After literally 2 months of thinking back and forth I decided to give it a try. So yeah, there I am, still looking a little confused at what Facebook can do. It's really a beast and luckily some of my friends guided me through it. Especially the privacy and security settings. A big thanks out to them.

There are already some things up and ready for you to view, but I have other things planned to do on my Tigaer-Design.com Page - well, aside of the usual posting of artworks, I also plan to drop a couple of detail snapshots of my artworks every now and then. Due to the fact that I'm a little ridiculous with putting detail in my pics, that no normal being could ever see on the downsized pics I usually post. The pics within pics so to say. =)  There are a couple posted already. Larger than the usual print preview pictures I create for my bigger projects.

Now hush and go LIKE ME! - Tigaer-Design.com Facebook Page

"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..."

"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!"

Dylan Cole (Digital Matte Painter)

The Luminarium Exhibit #21

Here we go again! "Elements" is the 21th Exhibit release by The Luminarium Artgroup. #21's topic "Elements" focused on things that are pretty much responsible for 'existence' in itself. This time it took a while to get the exhibit off the ground due to lots of busy members. The group nonetheless managed to collect a wide array of artworks that fantastically represent the topic at hand. Yet again it's something for everyone - may it be Photography, Digital Art or Music. All of surely a nice source for inspiration! So be sure to check it out -> Elements
