Novels: Runes of Magic - Origins of the Shareena-cover

By accident I rediscovered some old - some very old, mark my words -  graphics done by myself as an adolescent. This was done during school in 1985, during a time, when I had no idea about anatomy etc. Thus hands and feet are to small etc. 



However the interesting part is the motif, as we find the female archer or hunter in the computer game SACRED as well as in my novel Shareena. Inspired was this image by a comic called Marada, something with a lot of sex and violence. Typical stuff of the 1980's.

Now compare it with the Shareena-cover. The circle is closing...

Game Design: Becoming a professor

Starting in October 2010 I am becoming a professor for game design at the Macromedia University of Applied Sciences for Media and Communication in Munich.
This will be the first university in Germany featuring 'the new role of the game designer as author and director' - a game director, something I worked on for several years now.
