First off, very cool image, and thanks again for taking my tutorial and running with it. I love the rounded corners on your secondary s...




Half Moon Troop Transport Rough
Rough spaceship painting. Tried to keep it rougher than my usual rough, but it's always just too temping to add more and more details and tweaks. Inspired by a tree hopper insect, the spaceships of star wars, and a half moon.
Smash Giant 2
A giant robot I designed for a short film code named "Smash" my wife is working on. The simple 3d model was passed to her to begin previs / layout, then I painted this concept of the final modeling and texturing of the robot over top of the lowres 3d model. When the film reaches a point where it'll need a final model, I'll replicate the concept in full 3d. Inspired by the original transformers, many older animes such as Mazinger Z, Gundam, Patlabor, and of course the more modern Pacific Rim.
Megastructures 11 Rungworld 4
Inspired by the photography of ISS astronaut Alexander Gerst, this is a second painting depicting the megastructure known as a Rungworld.

Neil Blevins
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I've been an artist for as long as I can remember. Raised in Canada on a healthy dose of scifi and fantasy films, books, and videogames, I began painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into the computer, making 3d graphics and painting in 2d digitally. Professionally, I've created art for animated features, live action, videogames, TV, ride films and album art for companies like Blur Studio, and Pixar, where I currently work as a Technical Director.

Just now noticed thats actually Niel Blevins behind ArtOfSoulburn, wanted to drop a short word of thanks here for your CG Education on your blog! It really helped me to get a better grasp of compostition for my designs (and desing-process overall), though I don't work on sci-fi related stuff for the time being.

Glad you dug my educational stuff, and glad you found it helpful. Composition rules are pretty universal, I use them for scifi for my personal projects, but I use all the same rules for my Pixar work in my day job. It's all the same.
