Wow! This was another numb bummer!
I've somehow managed to sit down and finish this all in one sitting!!?

So tomorrow I'll reward myself with a trip to Hyde Park, and chill out in the sunshine that I missed today :)

I have a whole load of WIP shots of this which I might be able to use a some kind of digital paint style tutorial if people are interested.

Anyways, all done with CS4, and my trusty Wacom

Hope you like it.

(p.s. Also done a Maximum Strength version now, and it sits here )

J :)

The game is called Crysis (and Crysis 2)

The first one on pc, still has the best graphics of any gome so far, and it came out in 2007 :D

I'm a gamer from those old D&D days back in the 70's and 80's, but thanks for the info. :-)

No problem. It's always worth checking out on youtube or something.
it's just incredible that they've made a game that looks like that.


Blew me away the first time I saw it.

In your style (photorealism) it is a good job, but i just dont like this. I like more pictures, which looks more "painted" chceck my profile, let you know, what exactly i mean ;). How i said. What you wanted to reach, you definitely reached. Its nice photorealism. But personaly i like a little bit diferent styles.

Adding to the other post, I also use a STUPID amount of layers, and hsade/highlight layers ontop of those. That's mainly a speed thing though. If a client asks me to change something, it's alot quicker adjust just the 1 layer, than repainting the area again. I think that's one of the other reasons I work in a very clean style when I do my final bits :D

And I really do mean a STUUUPID amount of layers! :)

No problem :)
I like that style too, actually, I like TOO many, that's one of my problems :D
I end up with a mix of them all sometimes :P

Most of my past jobs have needed to be very clean styles, so I think that's the way my brain is wired now. Also, this is going to be a HUGE print. (actual size at 100 dpi is about 50 inches I think)

wow, nice :) and i thought, that if i paint in resolution about 8000x5000 px its big imige :D:D.... well i printed any of my jobs at A3 format (only experiment) and it looked even more better on paper than on monitor (of course it was quite worse, because on pc i painted in RGB and CMYK is just lower...) okok, i will be checking your profile and will be glad to see your next works :)

The trick to printing rgb pics (if I'm doing this for normal print or other jobs, I'll always use cmyk) I get these printed at A1/A2 size at a photo camera shop (as photo's are all in rgb, they have to get close to the photo)

I printed the F1 car pic as a prez for my Uncle, and it looked SO much better on a print that size and stayed so clear :)
The only thing you need to do is print a small test shot in the shop first and then play with the levels of the pic, as it WILL come out darker when printed than it looks on your screen

I'm going to try somewhere online like photobox next, as they are cheaper than in a shop, and did a really nice job on some photo's I just had printed at A2 size. :)

I'm reworking a "Maximum Power" version of this right now. It might add a bit more colour to it

STALKER!! :D

Actually, if you don't mind, I'm interested to find out from people... Which do you like more?
The first image, or the Max strength one?

Well, it really depends. The first image I tend to like more because of just how clean and professional it looks, while the second really emphasizes the shape of the character with the use of the red lining the character and highlighting certain parts to draw the attention of the viewer.

Both really cool; but I go with the first one.
