Pencil portrait of my original design for an unusual luxury home, House #334. Features include classic English vernacular massing and styling accents combined with a light-toned multicolored barrel tile roof similar to those found in southern France. (Note: early versions of this and the floor plans are in my gallery.)[link]
Technique: this is a shaded version of a line drawing submitted a year ago or so. House is blocked out on rough paper, checking perspective lines, roof lines, etc. When satisfied, I put tracing paper over, retrace outlines, lift it off, tape to card stock, and detail it all out. Paper size is 8 and half by 11 inches. All drawing is by hand using imagination only, no computer models or other gimmicks. All materials are light-toned, so shading must be in the middle to light grays, using primarily H and 2H pencils with limited use of HB and 3H. Strategy was to emphasize house and only suggest trees with outlines. Challenges included capturing the mottled sunlight and shadow on the right part of the house behind the oak tree, capturing depth and drawing the eye towards the house with the stone walkway and steps to the front left, and doing a "reverse" for the half-timbering pattern, with a darker color for the stucco background and lighter tone for the half-timbering. Also, suggesting the tile roof without getting too carried away with drawing each individual roof tile. A sketch needs to be finalized when "it says what it needs to say, no more, no less."

Hello everyone. A new concept painting that i have been working on. I've always wanted to try out painting one of those blade runner inspired cities as they always seem so atmospheric and epic. I used some matte painting techniques for this piece as i wanted to explore different styles and ways to approach a painting. I would say that this piece is a change from all the fantasy environments that i have been painting and it is definitely a breather for me. Will definitely do more of these kind of paintings in the future. Painted in Photoshop CS5 with Wacom Intuos 4. Cheers!
Wizard: "Cmon dude, just pay already! Or forget that stupid quest of yours, you are not getting anywhere without this portal!" Somethings lurking behind their backs.. lol
I decided to paint this piece really vibrant and throw in something random as I paint, like a brainstorm process. I also deliberately didn't wanna go into details or bump the shadows up that are cast from the characters as they are not the main focus of this composition. It started out as a speedpaint; wanted to create some detailed scenery from it, then an interesting shape popped up and I changed my mind quickly. PS CS6, Around 7hours. I absolutely LOVE fantasy and creating my own mysterious and magical worlds, its just this awesome feeling that drives me to paint these things.
EDIT: WOah a DD, Thank you so much for suggesting and featuring my work <33
