    yay for the courage to post in this a;lskjf;lakf forum full of pro art superstars. *__*
    I know how you feel.. D:
    The best way to improve is to surround yourself with artistic awesomeness, so...
    Your stuff's very nice, I like how well rendered the guy's face is in your second post. and that cool first painting, gloomy and gorgeous. ;D with the attention like the kind you paid to the face in the second, you can probably render it out to something epic.
    ;alskjd;lakjdslkajsdlkajdf keep posting, your stuff can't be that bad. x]

    that makeup bottle study is great, could be a photograph. The environment on the first piece is also good, but looks like the guys anatomy could use some work, especially around the shoulder and arm areas.

    Your knight characters looking good, i like his expression a lot

    Keep up those studies! They're not bad at all, the more of those still lifes you do, the better they'll get. Sometimes there are parts that are a little over-blurred and could use some more work and time on,but keep at it! your art is not as bad as you think!

    hey dude lol your pause was longer than mine and we started about the same time here

    I stopped to paint because I was doing some 3D works, then I got a little bit depressed because I was unemployed and wasn't able to really find a job, any job, then around in february I got a good job, not really what I want to do in life, but it's a good job and can use photoshop really often. Since february basically I was happy but I stopped every previous thing that I did at home, both 3D and painting studies, because I started to play every kind of videogames in all my free time lol (not including the time spent with my girl). Recently I got a toon up to 80 in Wow, then I left to go to a vacation to the sea, stayed there 2 weeks, and when I came back, last week, I didnt start to play wow again, but I started to draw again lol, and it's something that I really like and I'll be doing this from now on (even though I will play still, but not that much lol ). This evening in example I'd really like to paint, but I'm going to watch all the season one episodes of the Clone Wars animation, so I'll paint tomorrow. Not only of bread lives the man ffs.

    it's funny that u saw my thread when I posted yesterday
    cool
    come on good stuff keep on doing this
    cya

    that little cookie type guy from your icon is awesome and, more importantly, completely disturbing

    the building on the right is a texture of a house...the clouds are added from a photo too ^^ trying to find a way to work efficiently and add it into the paintings i do...to save time and being able to make quick speedpaints to catch a mood or a certain atmo or whatever ^^

    oh yeah and the anatomy is sooo off...but i wanted to work quickly and just threw in the character quickly...dont blame me for that...im still such a noob...BUT IM WORKING AT IT xD

    Game art update - Theory of Chaos

    Finally: I can now proudly present my work for the game: Theory of Chaos.

    The game is set in a near-future era, where scientists were making revolutionary experiments on lab-made microorganisms. Their experiments went haywire, and they unleashed a deadly species of blood-thirsty mutants into the world. We must stop these creatures before they continue to multiply in numbers, and the situation gets out of hands.

    My job: Graphics, Interface, Illustrations


    Now to the game art and screenshots:































    thanks for watching and being interested.

    Greetings, Max.

    Got some gold in here, studies seem good but best of all are these pieces from imagination, super creative, and in art creativity is king or at the very least queen nice work so far, keep it up
