I am Thomas Schmall, a German now living in Amsterdam. My passions are painting, games … and thinking about science and other unimportant things.
For many years I was employed in the games industry working on several triple-A titles, but changed into living from freelance work and traditional paintings. By now I’ve had some exhibitions in the Netherlands and Japan. I’ve also created by now thousands of costume drawings for operas around the world. I found that what I learn in one area, helps me greatly to improve in the other – so I’m also still busy with games – making and playing.
Here you’re at the right place to see all the outcomes of it: Paintings, sketches, tutorials and other art I find, random thoughts, or the progress of a little game project I’m working on.
Where I share my work:
Want to send any ideas, suggestions or hate-mails along? Feel free to comment or email me. I’m always eager to improve this page.
And of course, you can as well contact me for commissions or freelance work.
Here is a short clip of a German documentary from 2011 – showing me painting in Amsterdam’s Oude-Kerk.
