I'm Tobias, I was born 1982 in a little village in the black forest in Germany.
For more than 10 years, I've been working as a professional graphic designer / webdesigner and illustrator. I like to use pencils & markers but also do a lot of digital paintings. Besides my commercial stuff, I always drew things for myself, mostly fantasy & horror based. I've always done that and I guess I always will.
I am also a member of the MUCC, the Manchester University Comic Collective, where I was both a student and a tutor. We do not only give lessons on drawing comics and manga, but also about writing, developing stories and the whole process behind that. If you are interested, you can find us in my groups widget!
From the end of 2013 to 2014, I had a lot of personal crisis to deal with and as a result of them, I've made drastic changes in my life. I decided to leave design behind me and started an education to become a professional caretaker. I want to do good and help people. Believe it or not, my experiences in art are a big pillar of help for this, even though it may sound strange to some people.
I live and breathe pop-culture, I love a good glass of wine, a good book and an honest conversation. I have a wonderful fiancee which I love dearly and can't wait to finally get married, I love animals and cooking^^
To me, Deviantart is a place where I can show my works, look for comments and meet other people that like the same stuff as I do. I don't give a crap about the "artistic level", the experience or the age of a person. We can all learn from each other.

This is where I have my complete gallery, sometimes also with step-by-step documentations of my paintings. And of course it's a great place to make new contacts^^
My Youtube Channel. I mostly do speedpainting videos of my digital artworks. Also did a couple of video tutorials in both German and English where I explain some of the things I do.
