I browsed through some commissioned art folders and found this. I think it's safe to post this now because the NDA was valid for 3 years lol. I did this back in 2007 for Outso. What project for? No clue... all I was given was a rough 3D render and some reference. I did a lot more work for that company but most of it isn't worth showing I guess. I still like this one. Wasn't sure about how to title this image, but it looks like a wellness resort.
Every once in a while, Hideyoshi puts a few more hours into his paintings. Neglectfully, he paints away without proper planning and concept, hiding a boring base in eyecandy detail and colors. Then he regrets that he did and submits it to DA anyway b̶̶e̶̶c̶̶a̶̶u̶̶s̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶h̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶t̶̶h̶̶i̶̶n̶̶k̶̶s̶̶ ̶̶h̶̶e̶'̶s̶̶ ̶̶c̶̶o̶̶o̶̶l̶̶.̶
--- *cough no 3D base (except for the 3 main buildings), I was struggling with making the boring composition work. There are some scale issues and most of the building design is rather generic.
Haven't seen the movie yet, though. I heard it doesn't meet expectations :/ Damn, I want this movie to be awesome! I mean, the concept and prodcution value alone seem epic from what I saw in the trailers...
From my point of view, this might be the most successful painting I did this year. Could't sleep so I just painted something early this morning - it felt most relaxing and satisfying. Syd Mead was probably my biggest inspiration here again - both technique and subject wise. I salute him with this. I am addicted to this one brush at the moment which has a very desirable look I've always strived for. Took around 2.5 hours
I wanted to thank everyone for their constant support. An artist is nothing without their audience.
Just skimming through my computer, while updating my online portfolio (which was so outdated) I find a lot of stuff I have never posted! D: This was another piece I did for a game called Immortal Souls - Dark Crusade, a few years ago (lol)
Hey, haven't posted in a while. Hope everyone is doing fine! I want to fill my portfolio with some matte paintings. This is one I based on a photo I took in NY. Not anything crazy, very basic extensions etc. Any crits? Does it look photorealistic enough?
