Created for a Collective Exhibition in Mexico, as homage for a mexican Rock Band. It depicts my vision of one of many versions of the mexican legend of "The Weeping Woman" (La Llorona) and it is inspired by the song of the same name by the band Caifanes. The legend tells the story of a young woman who has lost her children, even after her death, during nights her spirit keeps weeping in sadness looking for them. Again, this is one of many versions
Thanks for watching!
Created in Mudbox & Maya, rendered with mental ray and post in Photoshop.
commissions will be open soon!. I've been trying for years to have a more agressive/rough style, try to use my markers in their original form and make it look good, but I was always thinking "nein, this looks so simple, or so messy..", I'm done with that!, I really need to free myself~ if you can't be free in your art then where the hell can you be free?!, so I decided to do a back to my roots hahaha and this is the result. . .. my roots: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
a present for ~Munrou her super hot OC shiro hope this make you smile hunnie ;^;
I just wanted to pay homage to one of the greatest movies of all time. I had so much fun doing this piece. Tim Burton's artistic style was surprisingly easy to mimic being that his work is more random and almost child-like, rather than being definite and repetitive like some characters and scenery of other famous movie franchises. It's almost like there was no scripted shape to anything so I was free to create what I wanted and make it look like the movie because I didn't have to be exact. Although it took forever playing with Jacks head before I was satisfied with the size and shape.
I'm trying to get some newer portfolio pieces together utilizing some feedback I got from the conceptart.org portfolio review a few weeks ago. The main comments I recieved were to watch my value patterns and overall composition. Thankfully, I had recently gotten it in my head that I needed to draw a huge migrating swarm of eels, so that seemed like a good subject to practice with. Unfortunately this isn't necessarily the best solution to the compositional/value pattern problems (the values are still a little spotty), but it was a lot of fun to paint. I like having something like this to render away at during downtimes.
Here we have the first painting i did on my new machine. I had the actual cave background plate render on my disk for a while now and used this project to see what the new machine can do. I'm pretty happy with the results i got from this project. Computer speed wise as well as painting result wise. I really used Vue a lot here to render out different elements for the background and foreground. The crystals, ships and trees were implemented with help of multipass rendering. Due to the speed of my new machine i finished the painting in a very good time.
This is a painting that, after lots of storyless pieces, has a story again. Some of you might know that U2 song 'Van Diemen's Land'. One of the most beautiful songs ever btw. In fact i listened to it when i was looking for a painting title. I always liked that name 'Van Diemen' and used it here. Now lets say this base we see here is some sort of hidden pirate base. Hidden within some sort of planetoid/super asteroid...
...A rock large enough to develop some sort of atmosphere where plants can grow. But only on the inside caves of the asteroid. On the surface you'll find plain death. Downcrashing asteroids. Deadly subeams. Extreme temperatures. Due to a special magnetic field the base cannot be spotted. You can only get there with the right coordinates! The base was once founded by a space pirate legend named (you guess it) Van Diemen. After one of his biggest coups he had to flee before a huge fleet that tried to hunt him down. His last chance was to hide in an asteroid field! He and his men made the brave decision to hide within an immense large weird splitted/cracked open rock, carefully maneuvering his massive ship, while the fleet searched everything for him. Soon he started to wonder why they did not pick up the energy signature of his ship and found out about the specialty of this place. He started to make plans... to build a hideout! That was 200 years ago. Now this place became a massive outpost for all sorts civilizations. The place now is named after its founder but it's no more a place for criminals and other scum of the universe. It's still very tricky to find this base and even with automated landing procedures there happen accidents every now and then. So when you plan your trip there... better pay some extra for a good ship and an even better captain!
Okay. In last six month i have worked on the project details of which i still can't share. Project is not published and two characters left to do, but i am able to share some stuff that was not approved. Allow me to introduce this little rascal. Dancer a genetically engineered cross between a lemur, meerkat and weasel, who love to party. Actually he looks a bit tired, doesn't he? It is the first version, later on he become happier Let me know what you think, guys! ---
This is ‘Pierke’ a Jay ( Vlaamse Gaai – for the Dutch and Belgian people). I have made it for the same friends as I have made [link] for. They run a Bed & Breakfast in Drenthe in the Netherlands. If you ever go to Drenthe, you should stay there!
The jay is made of plush and has a needle-felted face and paws.
At Thingvellir, people toss in coins from all over the world. I'm almost certain if I went scuba-diving and collected all the coins, I'd make quite a bit of money. However everything in Iceland is slightly on the expensive side, so it might not last that long.
Some friends of mine, they got their first gig at this bar and requested that I took pictures of them. (Actually most of my sidetime is spent on these guys, and since they can't afford a professional designer, they call me up!)
I had a lot of fun taking this set of pics, and learned a lot from taking pictures in dark interiors.
