    Cow Security Self Promo Piece

    Here's my first finished piece i'm uploading- Its a self promotion piece and part of a series with camera head people. This is "oil plus photoshop." While i've been coloring linework with photoshop for years, digital painting is a relatively new monster to me so i'd appreciate any comment on my technique. Thanks guys.

    It'd be cool to see it in higher res.

    Seems fine, although I feel that the perspective is abit off....but if you are interested in peoples opinion of how you "paint" in photoshop....then some details will be needed

    The perspective is from a slightly fish-eyed photo -it looks funky to me too, and i probably should have compensated more. I'll try and get a higher res version up when i have a second. Thanks for the comments guys!

    Hey that's really neat stuff you've got there! Funny how you just clip the leg off in the format. I like it when people does un-orthodox things like that sometimes. However, what is that red explosion thingy back there? I think it confuses up the image, and I certainly dont know why it's there. Good work.

    Thanks! I thought the foot could create a sense of movement out of the frame, so it would look less static - it sort of looked like he was just standing in the street otherwise. heh.
    The explosion is part of a larger story - this is a splash for a mini comic venture. I guess it is sort of random out of context... heh. Maybe i'll paint it out just to see.

    Revisions, New Stuff



    I decided to rework the format of this piece. It would be great if anyone had any opionions about the vertical format, which is pretty close to what i consider completion (Tho honestly i'm not really sure what "complete" means anymore.) . I've also included some of my more finished initial character concepts for a game i'm working on.
