About five years ago, I sculpted one of the key characters from my headworld stories: Xantar, the Chronist. Now, as I gained more experience with painting 3D-objects in the last years, I re-painted him.
First dual colored 3D print of the Barbossa model with reduced size (2/3 of original print size). His name is Shoto (pun intended).
“Let me be the contradiction of your false beliefs.”
“And I reach into the raging chaos to seek the truth that lies between you and me, to nourish the passion that leads me on paths which were hidden before. Free like a bird, they say. Free like a tree, I answer. A tree which grew from the heart of a bird. The bird itself is a slave to the storm, while the tree observes with mild interest, standing tall, even unshakable, against the furious wind.“
“In the end, without a vision for the future you will always return to your past.”
“The mind always wanders, on known and unknown paths, observing, thinking, trying to unravel the mysteries behind all living and dead eyes.”
“Quo vadis? To the stars or to the flame? To the river or the tree?
Vanishing borders, disappearing orders.
A beating heart.”
“To ashes, to ashes. You will make the land bloom once again.“
What I love about traditional art is that there is an ‘original painting’, which you can hang onto your wall. It feels ‘more real’. Therefore I just had to print my latest large digital painting “Lucid“.

“And still I dream about a world at peace, even though I know better.“
