Tales: The Art of Christian Alzmann
Tales: ('teilz) a narrative that relates the details of some real or imaginary event, incident, or story.
Whether it's a tale that Christian has read or one that he has been developing in his head, the tale has always been one of his biggest causes for inspiration.
Tales: The Art of Christian Alzmann is Christian's first collection of his digital paintings and sketches and his traditional pencil sketches. For our pleasure he also takes the reader through his digital painting process using Photoshop and Painter.
It was seeing Star Wars at the age of five that first inspired Christian to draw. The years following would be filled with drawings of spaceships, animals, creatures, and images from the many science-fiction/fantasy movies he watched.
Years later he graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, and was hired by Industrial Light & Magic to work in its art department. At ILM he has worked on many film projects, including Star Wars Episode ll: Attack of the Clones, War of the Worlds, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and A.I.: Artificial Intelligence.
Now a Senior VFX Art Director, Christian is still having fun working in film, games, and publications.
