another environmental concept attempt:....O whats that...bloody hands?! Dun! Dun! DUNNNNN!!!!
Your stuff is amazing. If your figures were vomit, I'd eat it. My only comment, and this is more a comment than crit, is that I'd really like to see some warmer colours in this image. It tends to look a bit flat/greyscale other wise. Similarly, there seems to be a lack of shadow which adds to the flatness. Anyhoo, you can draw a dome in perspective without it looking weird so ***** from me.
Wow! Exquisite Beast thats quite the compliment lol and thanks for the crit, I see what your saying.
jdeegz- yea sure lets go! blizzards a toughy though lol, they were at a siggraph job fair that I went to and they were sitting there with their arms crossed like they were set to auto deny... every time someone came up to them with a portfolio they pretty much said no thanks before even seeing it haha. I was talking to them for a while and they were saying that they can pretty much be as picky as they want because everyone wants to work for blizzard, some general advise they were giving to people was that if you wanna work for blizzard, Make "blizzard art" "make your work fit into our world" anywaayy,..
I'm posting my final medusa up in the finished work section, no reason to fill my sketchbook with multiple revisions or should I....
so hey, i am interested into going to come like.. concept art fairs or galleries, do you happen to know anything about a scene in boston ? seems like no one here at massart except for a small few are into doing stuff like this.
and do fill you sb with revisions :-D
I enjoy watching the process and progress in your work. Final looks great. Keep up the good work

heres a few shots from a recent commission, I usually don't do much city/sci-fi work so this was quite fun and refreshing I also think I learn a lot from it. also heres a page of waterfall quickies, I limited my time to 30 minutes each I know quality is more important that quantity/speed but I was just testing what I can to in a short period, anyway comment and crits welcome
Awesome paintings, Love the medusa! Keep on posting. Very cool and well made stuff you have here!
Amazing creations,man!!!Those fast little enviros look so great!
thanks both of you! obviously i'm still figuring the whole concept art thing out so any help on that would be much apreciated actually last night I figured out two major road blocks in terms of concept art: one my computer is to slow to do fast sketchy work! lol and i have a major problem with not being able to stop, i keep refining things that don't need to be refined o well gotta keep at it here is another concept im working on, possibly for this weeks environmental challenge, abandoned space station, with this one i tried the grayscale and later layered color over it, which was pretty fun, now i have to make it more devastating...
Amazing sketchbook, I love the medusa, it is so amazing! I await more work!
nice stuff, dont you hate computer speed limitations, Im still using photoshop 6 for the reason. But open Canvas seems to be lighter on the computer for fast sketchy stuff, smooth arcs not so much chop chop chop chop. Nice enviros, the only critic that jumps out at me is the second waterfall, there seems to be a light line that goes all around the tree that looks unnatural to me,but what ever stuffs lookin good!
