Currently I'm working on this modern mage for my project. Also I'm working on TAM truck 3d model which is mostly done. It should be the vehicle in which the main characters will travel to their adventures. 

TAM truck finished, some screens from 3d model presentation video for my show reel.

Private project

I also started a private project linked to the world that I've created for roughly 4-5 years ago
It should be old school plain adventurous sci-fi, something what I think that is missing today. I'm currently working on a story and main characters, also on populating world with interesting apocalyptic, mutated residents. Theme is actually about greedy people, stupid people and ecology.  I'm still not sure whether this project will be in a form of some kind of comic book or animated movie. Animation is really hard for realization, especially when you work alone. To evoke the touch of this world, here is a link to 4 years old video and concept art of a few characters. There are two more cadres of video that i never published, I'll upload them later.

Allods Team contest

Month ago I found contest from Russian company Allods Team, they needed concept art for sci-fi soldier, this is result.

Fallout NV BBD mod concepts

I started to work with people who wanted to try their hand at making games, they needed characters, monsters, vehicles, weapons. I realized that it is much easier to draw a concept and then create a 3d model, so I started drawing again, this time digitally. It's more symbolic, just to capture idea, more for personal use than a real concept art.

You can find 3d model versions on Beyond Boulder Dome mod blog
in older posts and something on my web page

Old comics

At the beginning, some selected details from the old comics I drew, something is sketched in pencil, something with ink. These drawings are from the year 1995, I found a small note in the first picture that says Fürst 95. Mostly they're not completed, do not have any text, and some remained in the stage of sketch.

Welcome to Art Of Oz

I'm Ozren Fuerst and I do mostly 3D models and some animation. I am a 3D generalist, and able to do any job of that kind. Here is my web page covering the 3D part of my work.

Since I have much to say, some in form of words, much more in form of drawings and paintings and since I don't have powerful enough loudspeakers or a large enough screen so anyone can hear it and see it, I decided to start a blog.

The intention of this blog is to motivate me to continue with traditional and digital drawing, which I neglect for too long, and to receive constructive criticism and advice for further progress. I have not had a chance to study in an art schools. I'm self-taught and that is the hardest (or the most foolish) way to learn so I'm not really sure if that what I'm doing is worth anything.

As I said, some of the content will be expressed with words, other in form of pictures. The reason for that is probably the fact that I have grown up among a lot of comic books which were very popular those days. I was only a kid then, so I didn't worry much about words and meaning. It was important to me that my drawings look approximately cool as those I could see in old Marvel comic books. Of course, I couldn't achieve that then and not even now.

Growing older, I realized that good story and meaning of things are very important too, that ideas originating in art are inspiring science, philosophy, ecology, even politics, every known human activity. On the other hand, it would be hard for art if there were no physics (influence of force), math, especially geometry, biology (anatomy), chemistry (tools for expression) and electronics (digital painting and 3D). All these things complement each other, so when you deal with art, you deal with everything. Well, that would be the topic of this blog, everything.
