    This stuff is awesome, i really like it. I do a little environment painting myself and would love to see how you lay your texture in your paintings. All of these have great texture and lighting, any chance we could get a step by step? thanks for posting!

    Now that I can talk again, I just have to ask a few questions.

    This is the kind of stuff I want to start doing, but I don't know how you do it. Did you use a graphics tablet and paint all of that? Are you using several photos and making a "matte painting" ( I think that's what it's called?) If you do paint it, how do u get all that texture? it's amazing.

    And are you using like photoshop or painter x or something?

    And again, amazing work.

    This stuff is unbelieveable, James. I really have to learn how to do enviros. Any general tips on how to go about making good enviros? I know absolutely nothing about it. Also, Do you like to use some rock pictures for those rocks or is that all painted by hand? Looks great!

    Sorry i know i posted a few up, and dont mean to be creepy but this stuff blows my mind.

    I was Just taking a second look through your sketchbook; I'm really curious how you get such an amazing textural look to your pieces. This piece is the one i'm staring at in amazement: http://www.jamespaick.com/images/ent...terance_05.jpg
    How did you do the rocky cliffside in the painting? The texture and lighting on them is right on, and i don't see any brushstrokes which is another thing that i love about it. I spend hours painting brushstroke by brushstroke each nook and cranny of texture into rocks and it still doesn't get that crisp look i want. I was just wondering how you go about creating such nice textures to your work. You don't have to give away the full secret but i've been tying my brain in knots trying to figure out how on earth such a great texture is achieved.

    Second question has to do with the tri-archway that cuts in front of the sunlight in the upper right. How did you go about creating that? it's really crisp looking and also has great texture to it. Many many props on such amazing work, it's totally amazing stuff.

    ArtZealot- hey man. thanks, again, for the support and great things you said about my work. The piece that your asking about was produced after experimenting wtih pushing and pulling of paint, custom brushes and photo texture. Many times I just let the paint and brush do all the work and other times I will have much of the photo do the work. Its a fine balance of photoshop tricks, painting and matte painting techniques. To answer your question regarding the arches. Using photoshop just as a painting tool, to me, is a bit ignorant. ps has so many tools that can support and speed up the process....so why not use them. I used to the pen tool and selection tool a lot to help create edges and crisp lines.
    THere is no subsititute for just learning the basic theories of color, composition and painting. THese foundational skills are what matter the most, and photoshop is just another medium to work. Its not to make an artist better per se, but I think its just a tool for quick production. just my 2 cents...
    also, i recently submitted much of my work to 'digital arts masters' vol 3. hopefully if accepted, i'll be doing an extensive write up on this piece and other pieces as well. Cross your fingers =)

    Sweet, yeah i'll be rootin for ya to get that in the digital arts masters. Thankyou very much for answerin my question. I tried a bunch of stuff except the pen tool for stuff like that cool looking arch in the painting in question and that texture tip really helps. Also, thanks for the advice on the texturing. I've never really tried mixing brushes, photos, and paint, it's usually been one or the other. Anyway, i really appreciate the help.

    This is the kind of design I'm obsessed with. You have my thanks.

    One piece of criticism though, I don't like diagonal perspective on one of those pieces. Always preferred my images square, with well developed angles and things.

    I know I am just another brick in the wall saying that I like your art a lot.
    I wish I knew how to make environments like these, environment is my achilles heel.

    Great Job man, I've always wondered to know how you draw your straight lines, do you have a Cyntic wacom, or just a normal digital tablet!?

    Very awesome and incredibly inspirational stuff. Really nice work! All of the stuff is exceptional, but I personally really like "upper_city_full.jpg" a lot.
