Ursula 1600 01

Ursula. Sensual creature from the depths of the ocean! This was a personal project I created with the aim of integrating CG elements seamlessly into the human body. As a matte painter i'm often challenged with the task of manipulating the human body in one way or another, sometimes it's fixing makeup and prosthetic, other times it might be removing someones head! clearly never a dull moment in the world of matte painting! 

I recorded the complete process of creating this artwork and made the videos, ebook and highres break down available on Gumroad -

Derelict Ship Interior
This was a matte painting I recently did to demonstrate a piece that was constructed mostly from my kitbash elements. I've made the .PSD available for free on my Gumroad page here: The kits used in this painting are also available through my Gumroad. 
I've worked on some very cool projects in the last years; Halo and Maze Runner to mention a few! Did you see Maze Runner? Personally I thought it was better than I imagine it was going to be. When working in VFX on a high profile movie, you don't really get a sense of what the movie is about; you have your little part to play in the process and you have a very small window to see through, so for the best part of 12 months you find yourself making a lot of guesses. But in this case it was better than expected. Halo was a great project to work on, I can possibly say this was the coolest project i've worked on! I created around 30 extremely diverse digital paintings featuring wide cityscapes, space battles, worlds being destroyed! It was a blast!

I've recently begun to focus on creating tutorials. Though to be honest I'm a little blind for where I should focus my attention. I've created a few that you can see over on Youtube:  

Please check out my blog too!

Happy painting! :)

yup, I've never given up. There's been many frustrating times in my creative career when it felt like I wasn't moving, but I always stood firm to what I wanted to do. The more active you are, the more work you do; the more opportunities you create for yourself. :)

Hi man! Can you make another account with stock resources on DA?

Oh? I'm open to the possibility of doing that, but I don't fully understand how this would be of benefit? Please expand on the suggestion :) Thanks.
