My name is Patrick Toifl, I'm a digital artist with roots in pencil-drawings!

My gallery mostly contains digital portraits done in Photoshop using the Airbrush-tool and a Wacom-tablet. I also try to get back into traditional media, so every now and then I will post a pencil-drawing or a watercolor-painting!

My works are not vexels or vectors! All is painted with my Wacom-pen from scratch. Yes, I often use photo-references, but I never just used a Photoshop-filter to alter a photo! And no, I do NOT just paint over the photos! What would be the point of that?!

I joined dA in the year 2005 - but did not post much in nearly 2 years until I came back in Sep 2007 and that's when I took it seriously and posted my works on a regular basis! You can at least expect one new work a month!

Visit my official website for a closer look at my artworks and for my Archive of older works:

You can watch an interview and a 3-part-video of how I do my illustrations here:

Because over the last years a lot of people on deviantart have demanded it, I have finally now made a video-screen-capturing of my painting-process! You can see the making of my newest artwork "Jessica Stam" exclusively on my new youtube-channel! It's divided into three videos - each 10 mins long - running at 8x speed.

I also was asked to do a video-interview - so I kinda coupled these two projects. The final video is also on youtube. You can see an overview of my work in the last 10 years, me working on the "Jessica Stam" painting and answering questions regarding my art.

Hope you like it! Let me know what you think!

Over 320 books of my Artbook 2008 have been shipped internationally - thanks to everyone for their orders!!! As long as supplies last I will give the surviving copies away for FREE!!! The only thing you have to pay for is shipping! More info:…
