So again... this piece was done over a year ago (beginning of '07). I got the idea as I was working on my own stuff... and looked around at a lot of my friends sketches and what is popular out there, and noticed that Fantasy and Sci-Fi were definitely going head to head in some cases. Thus, I tried to create a painting showing the battle between these two imaginary worlds, where you have the non high-tech creatures and races battling it out with the spaceships, robots, and mech. This was another painting I abandoned due to lack of appeal in composition... and as I said before, maybe I will revisit it or redo it with more appealing composition and design.
So here it is a digital painting I did during last spring for a Yang Pulse's book which is still to be finished (but I can't wait to read it! ). It took me ages to finish this as I had never painted spaceships before and because I had to achieve an incredible amount of detail. I feel kind of proud so I hope you guys like it!
Everything is designed and painted by me except for the clouds which are kind of matte painting.
I hope you like it, I really enjoyed doing this one, probably because I have so much motivation from playing the game. I am going to post up another Skyrim picture I did shortly, it's the original one I was working on but as I progressed through the game I wanted to change the armor and pretty much everything else haha! So I moved onto this one.
Enjoy, and feel free to show me your setup in-game too. I'm interested to see how you are all going
This one was inspired by one of the best artists ever, Ralph McQuarrie. I know the composition is not the most fortunate one. The initial sketch had a simple "one point perspective" composition, but I've tried to experiment with something more complex...and failed ) That's why it's called trial and error. Anyway, I've put too much effort into it to throw it away, so here it is. Max for 3D, Photoshop for painting.
I took a step further in my sculpture and decided to have some fun. Made it all rusty and moldy, even though this kind of metal isn't supposed to rust. (yes, I'm a bit of a star wars geek). ^__^
I've had a lot of people commenting on how and what I made this out of, etc.
I've sculpted the original out of plastalina (it's kinda like plasticine but finer and less oily). Its about the size of my head, u can actually wear it; well at least it fits my head, a lot of people that bought it off me said it was too small though. After i was done, i made a mold and cast it with resin and fiberglass woven in. I've thrown it around, hit it with a hammer, tossed it off the 2nd floor of my apartment and it didn't break, just a few chips you see in the pic. the visor is made of clear Plexiglas which i cut to shape, heated in the oven and bended it to the shape of the helmet and finally covered with reflective film (see through of course). I used acrylic paint for every thing you see. the moss I used that stuff architects use for trees then painted to make it look more realistic.
all of it took me just over two months to make, but at the time i was in school so i spent maybe 30 minutes here and there when i could.
I still do make these every so often when someone commissions me to. Each one will be different since they are all hand made. If you are interested you can contact me with a note or something. I also make other kind of sculptures of all styles and size.
After much planning and material experimentation, I'm pleased to show you the results of my ADAM Syringe project. For those of you who've played Bioshock, you know these are the tools used by the Little Sisters for ADAM harvesting. If you haven't played Bioshock, go out and grab a copy. It's one of the best games ever made.
For the record, I am NOT 'griefboy' on the Cult of Rapture forums. He was my inspiration to make this beauty, and he deserves credit for being the first to make an ADAM prop. Mine is different from his, as is appropriate, since in the city of Rapture these syringes would be cobbled together from various parts rather than being mass produced.
This Vegvisir is made of thin Hand embossed Brass, (Repousse), its similar to Bjork's tattoo but my own design. It is 6" in diameter and in the center I have added a piece of Iolite. Iolite was a gem used by Vikings to find North during cloudy weather. When Iolite is cut into a proper cube, it shows different colors from different directions. It was this property called "pleochroism" that helped the Vikings to find the direction in overcast weather. The brass piece is offset mounted on a dark blue-green mat and framed.
I'm sorry that I'm unable to reply to all comments nowadays but I do appreciate them. Thank you for looking and for the kind comments!
Skarin, the main character of Sega's/The Creative Assembly's new title Viking: Battle for Asgard. The task was to achieve a rather realistic and more detailed feel of the in-game character. Since it was used for life-size standee prints, the artwork has an extremely high resolution, it was a challenge to bring in all the details while preventing from a too stiff and unnatural look with that huge size. Completely done in Painter X and Photoshop CS3, no use of 3d software.
Viking Berserker. His blood is boiling with adrenaline and alcohol and he feels no pain. His soul is a grizzly and he is possessed by the true animal instincts. He is a fierce warrior that does not seem to have any fear of death.
He sneaks. He creeps. He evades. He lurks. He ... well, you get the point. He weasels himself about in a slinky fashion to conquer nations, defeat samurai, and foil dastardly plans. He is... The Ninja Weasel.
grubunun düzenlediği "Hediyelik Eskiz" etkinliği için yaptığım hızlı bir eskiz. Etkinlik kapsamında her üye rastgele bir başkası için bir eskiz talebinde bulunuyor. Böylece herkes birisi için bir yılbaşı hediyesi eskiz çizmiş oluyor.
Bana ~komozeck tarafından gelen eskiz konusu ise resimde görüldüğü gibi "canlı performansta Zombie Beatles". Benim verdiğim konuyu ise ~telumaithor resimleyecek. Eskizi görünce buraya ekleyeceğim.
This is a fast sketch done as a gift for ~komozeck as part of the "Gift Sketch" activity held by the Turkish group #eskiztr. The activity was held to encourage the artists in the group to draw sketches as gifts for each other randomly.
The concept I got was "Zombie Beatles at a live concert". I gave my sketch idea to someone else which I'll post here once I see it.
Didn't have much time to work on this and I suck at likenesses but I guess the doodle serves it's purpose to some degree.
UPDATE: Wow I woke up on Dec 31st to see that I recieved a DD. Such an honor on the last day of 2011. Big thanks to Spring and Willow for their support.
Funny this was my first painting I did when I moved into my new apartment in madrid. This has been quite an experience for me thus far . I have learned so much and met so many awesome people and shared so many great experiences. I really 2012 will be better
So as my gift to you guys I uploaded the full res version of this painting for you guys to download. So have fun!! ______________________________________________
So I finally got my computer set up , I am surprised it made it through the long plane ride. Everything seems to be in order so I did a quick painting test to make sure everything is good before I start taking on any freelance.
Anyways This took about 4 hours total in CS5 , it was all done with one chalky brush and some custom shape tools. It was only when I was about 90% done with that I began to add photo texture in the foreground.
I usually add photo textures in the middle or beginning , so this was a different way of approaching it. I will try more tests . Ill try to do some live stream tests to as well. Make sure everything is working on that end . Anyways , thanks for looking
Illustration for the puzzle game "Family Mystery - The Story of Amy".
Unlike most hidden objects games, where items are just haphazardly tossed around, the items in here are drawn into the line art and the result is almost like an optical illusion. There are about twelve of them in every single image and there are thirty picture in the game. Here is a link to the site where you can download and try it - one hour - for free.
