    I like what i see.
    But I like the 2nd one more because it's looks more transformers/Mech than power rangers and there is more action(more dynamic). The first one has too much power ranger looks, probably the blue,gray,red,gold colors of the mech.
    Keep up the good work...

    wow. I can honestly say... WOW!!!

    If I have to crit I'd say, the 2nd piece, the even more gargantuan mecha seems to be shooting at someone even BIGGER than he is! A little confusing... but then, I'm grasping at straws here.

    AWESOME
    I wonder how you create these wonderful textures?
    For example, this:

    How do you get it so wonderful?

    Dude... like they said, wicked.

    Mecha was never really my thing (well, besides when I was 6 or 7 and kept watching Tansformers over and over), but the technique you use is just staggering. I seriously hope I'll be able to do that one day.

    amazing style, extra special bonus points for that old/epic look with that kind of texture combined with the futuristic subject matter of huge mechs; it makes for a really interesting and innovative feel. some may say it invokes memories of childhood (transformers) as most of us probably grew up with at least some influence from the series.

    Great stuff, especially the second one. It's loose and tight in all the right places. Mechs don't usually light my candle, but there are rare exceptions. Can't wait to see more.

    I dig the missle clip on the second piece a bunch. neat variation.

    I also like the rock on the first. nice and gritty!


    Hey as an edit... Your website requires a 1100+DPI resolution, but doesn't offer any alternatives and ther's no scrolling. Folks like myself who use a low screen resolution cannot enjoy your portfolio. You may want to take that into consideration next time you revise your webspace. I wanted to see what you have worked on in the past... but I had to abandon your site.

    And to any wisenheimers who tell me to change my resolution to view his site... you're missing the point.


    Great work, man! Good Luck!

    Now that I look at it again. The second picture he lookst like he's powertraining. A gun with the clips and much weight up front. The gun is bigger than the arm. I wouldnt carry that on my shoulder like that...perhaps from the hips carrying it with two hands like a minigun dunno...

    Man, this stuff is wicked. I love the texture that you've created, it adds a real life, and dynamism to the piece. my only crit is in the second piece, the mehc in the bottom left looks kind of half finished. I don't know if this is on purpose, to draw all the attention to the giant mech, but I think it could be more finished with out detracting from the big guy.

    OMG ! that's incredible as always Dowa. the first one takes the cake for me because of the sort of "atmospheric fog" (bad french can't speak good english ) that's so realistic and adds a lot of mood to the pic. You are one of my top fav' on this board definitely.

    congrats

    Just stunning as always. These images are so badass. I think I found a new background for my desktop. Did you ever post a tutorial?

    Smokin! The second one by far, I like the painterly look to it.

    I feel like Optimus Prime clocked me one right in the smacker. Which is a good thing when it comes to artwork !
    Anyhoo, I really like it but am a little surprise not to see any scratchies when I saw your nick on the thread.

    Oh my god I just noticed the two people at the bottom of the 2nd piece. Right when I saw the first piece I gasped, and the pleasure sectors of my brain blew out. This is the stuff that I grew up on, not like those anime subculture kids, but like those "omfg autobots rock!! whooooo!!!!!eleventy" people. In my opinion mech design is one of the most pleasing art forms to produce, and watch come to life. It's like you took a shotgun, filled with imagination, and sprayed the canvas. So here I am signed onto my account for the first time in ages, but its so worth it. Details man, the details, *sniff, so beautiful!

    Now, as much as it pains me, there are some critiques, but only knit picking cuz ur anatomy is crazed.

    1. In the first picture, the pose is what makes it awesome, but something about the angle of its feet makes it look pidgeon footed, I suppose this is because of the way you cropped it but maybe I'm wrong.
    2. The style you used was awesome, and realistically while you get further away from the foreground ur consistent in "blurring" things but on the lower left, with that samurai looking one (i don't know where this is from please don't rip my organs out!) i didnt know what that thing was on its back. I realized you used the same mech as in the first pic but if the thing is hunched over wouldn't that ornament change angle as well? I thought it was a similarly colored temple in the horizon until i looked at the first picture a little closer.

    YES I REALIZE YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL I'M SORRY!!

    but i feel if you truly respect someone you need to give'em all you got. in this case it was some condescending advice. and again i apologize.
    dare i ask for a tut? or at least the program used? hehe keep it up man.

    That's classic looking like John Berkey doing Robotech.
    What is your medium? how big are the originals? How long does it take you to do these? etc.

    woah! like the ridiculous contrast in size between the humans and machines!

    also the excessive amount of action and damage makes me wonder what a second frame
    of the same scene would look like...

    skillful!
