I am really enjoying the stylized proportions of the guy with the horns. I would love so see more in that direction.

DefiledVisions-Man thank you very much!!! Thats an interesting idea, i will do :). What you say its true, it came out very center aligned, by doing the little cropings i was on the side checking which areas works and which are not. The most information is in the center and for the whole compo to work we need more stuff here and there. aargh!-Yo mate, thank you very much :), hehe glad you can feel that. wilkerson-Thank you very much mate, although i have to search some more on that aspect. However i still find that when i dont like something the fault is more likely to be found in values. ForScience-Thank you mate:D!!! That was from an older sketch, maybe i will try doing some more.
Ok didnt work a lot today but i said i am gonna try to update everyday with everykind of crap :)
Thanks for supporting!!! Good night
Thanks for the livestream. I would love to see you post the final product.

ForScience- Thank you very much mate :D!!! I will upload what i have done so far in the livestream. The dino piece reached this point so far, dunno maybe i will work some more on it.
I am uploading the livestream video on youtube right now, its about 7 hours or so, it will take a while, but when it finish i will post the link here. Unfortunately i cant livestream in high quality due to system restrictions [it becomes very laggy]. And i have to find how to properly record the background sound, because some times the strokes go with the songs hahaha.
Thanks for supporting :D!!!
[EDIT:i uploaded the video]

I love how well you use the technology in your painting method. It is inspiring to me.
January 27th, 2013, 06:33 AM

January 27th, 2013, 07:24 AM
Stunning work as ever mate! I love the illustrations on the previous page, I feel like there should be rain pelting at my face having seen the great effect you pulled off.
Thanks for the livestream. I missed it live but am catching up on youtube (subscribed to you there also!), it's great to see your work demonstrations in video now to add to your already great reputation for tutorials!
January 27th, 2013, 10:07 AM
KingKostas, I'm blown away right now. I would be absolutely humbled to get some crits/advice/berating comments from you if you so had the time, as I think your work might be the best I've seen on this site yet. Off to watch your livestream now. :)

NickyBeats-hehe thanks mate, probably you missed it cause of timezone difference. But the video is still there :) ForScience-Thank you very much mate :D!! thanks for the info!!! llex_paul-Thank you very much mate!!!Heheh yep i prefer it like that pure and continuous, but probably it will contain more random stuff in that way. MacTire-Yo Conor thanks very much mate :). Will try to provide better ones. MrFrenik-Thank you very much for encouraging mate!!! I will try to not let you down. Yep i will visit, just some worked piled up and i have to deliver. Thanks for watching :) TNiznet-ahahah thanks very much mate :)!!! kevin_-hehe mate thankieesss :), well lets both keep up!!! sytrex-Thank you mate :), i will do more soon. dimi-pou se man :D!!! Thank you very much, i will notify when i will be making one again.
ok sorry for breaking the daily update, its just that some works piled up, but i will try my best to keep it daily or very often updated :D
Some sketches i did because my drawing skills are weak and because there are a lot of things i have to solve [workflow related] and i have to start preparing portfolio stuff, i have to keep reminding myself that i want to be a concept artist first and then an illustrator.Probably i will screw it up in the end
Thanks for supporting mates!!! lets all keep up!!!!
January 28th, 2013, 06:27 PM
I'm going to watch the hell out of that Livestream you uploaded! :D That dinosaur is a badass. Will try and catch you next time you are on Livestream.
You're doing awesome as always, King.

January 29th, 2013, 01:22 AM
Wow, damn man you always kill it!
January 29th, 2013, 08:54 AM
Really sweet stuff the values in the rendered line girls are so jummy. Also like the dinosaur alot, is it a matte panting? Anyways thanks for sharing mate.
January 29th, 2013, 06:38 PM
Royzy-Yo mate how you doing? Thanks very much :), now the schedule became a little tight but soon i will do one smrrfette-ahha euxaristw polu :D!!! Thanks, lets keep up :D!!! NickyBeats-Thanks very much mate :), i will try to keep up RyanRyan-heehhe thank you mate :D!!! Yemi775 -Thankieesss :)!!! Baconstrap-Thanks very much mate, well its not matte painting. Actually you can see the process in the livestream-youtube video. I used some photo at some point but mostly for texture and some shapes :).
Ok i just have to do some things silmutaneously so i dont have lots of time for personal stuff. Ofcourse i will stabilize that, its just the period. When i find the proper time i will visit mates, and sorry for that.
Lets all keep up :)
here something for today, there are more things i wanted to try on this one but had to leave it.
January 30th, 2013, 03:42 AM
Aren't you a beast, kostas? lol. Very nice updates, both quantity and most importantly, quality! I fell for the asian chick pose, especially (one with a bow on her back). I like her personality.
January 30th, 2013, 03:48 AM
amazing stuff dude, been a very long while since i came here, i see you still working hard ! Keep it up !
January 30th, 2013, 01:44 PM
Haven't been by in a while - regretting every minute not stopping by. Really inspiring stuff here - Great imagination, and I really like the poses - they look 'real', not forced or pushed. Really amazing stuff - looking forward to your next post!
January 30th, 2013, 07:01 PM
witcrack-ahahhaahh thank you very much mate :D!!! Although each time i see my work i dont like it. There are still lots of things that i have to fix and i should also prepare a portfolio, thats giving me a little stress. kikindaface-Thanks very much mate :), i will keep trying to become better!!! meticulous-Thankiees :D!!! I am glad you liked the poses, i was drawing a lot in paper to get the rust off [because i hadnt done lots of characters lately].
ok thanks for the great support mates!!! I am trying to find some things, its frustrating but i will find it. When i see my artwork i feel there is something missing, even in comparison with less rendered and less composed scenes from other great artists. I think the missing thing might be in my level of detail. Probably i need more details, do you agree? Or please if you feel what my work is missing, share that feeling with me, it will help me complete the puzzle and also provide better info later on.
Good night and LETS ALL KEEP UP :D!!!!
January 30th, 2013, 07:50 PM
You are such an inspiration King' ! Really, I would like to thank you for all of your work and all of your advices (as an example, your advice about focusing more on values is helping me so much in my recent work ! :D )
Now about your work, I was also wondering some days ago if you wouldn't gain in strenght with more details ! Also, I think you are mastering the "epicness" in your scenes (They are sooo wonderful and they're telling stories) but your characters may have a sort of "lack of expression", I mean, you give them expressions but maybe you could exagerate or increase them, like you did on these :
