    Ive been working in digital painting for about 8 years.
    Im so glad you dig the work, its an honor to be told youve inspired someone.
    All the best to you.

    Amazing technique, but how was this achieved? I mean, the silhouettes are so sharp that I suspect you are using paths to mask them, but then again, you even manage to create super sharp shadows inside the characters. It is so super clean, and really impressive. But I guess it also leaves a metallic feeling to some things, which you might have to be careful of.

    The left side of the giant in "Beneath the Blackened Heavens" have zero of the light from the sky reflecting on his skin. But this might be done on purpose, because his right side does have it, especially on his arms and leg.

    Other than that, your style looks like a HDR effect done right, and the fact that it's done by hand is probably the most impressive thing I've seen in many years.

    Thank you for these really kind words my man!
    I dont use masks, I just toss on a low impact sharpen after popping up the contrast and saturation.
    All of what you see is done by hand from scratch, I feel you learn the most that way.
    I dont really have any shortcuts or special tricks unfortunately, these pieces usually take me about 2+ weeks to do at around 6-8 hours a night, 6 days a week.
    Its not an optimal workflow but I learn a lot on every piece and have come to enjoy the journey far more than the destination, I love to work.

    Your right though, I do have to be careful of going too hard on the overexposed lighting in the future, I appreciate that insight.

    All the very best to you and thanks again!

    Thank you very much for taking the time to comment as much as you did, I dont even know basic greetings in any language but my own!
    It means a lot to me that Ive inspired you, thank you so much for that!

I did want to ask you a few questions about your way of practice and maybe a bit about your history. I assume you've been drawing pretty much all your life but at what point did you start to take it seriously and actually look towards making a career of it? Also what media do you work mostly in? What past education have you been through etc?

    I would love to one day be able to do work even close to the quality of yours but I'm a bit lost in terms of what is involved along the line of getting that good.

    Once again, brilliant work, I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for more of your work.
    I appreciate your enthusiasm for my work, it really goes a long way for me and keeps me driven.
    To answer a few of your questions:
    Ive been drawing on and off my whole life but I decided to start taking it seriously around my mid 20's. Im not trained in the arts, in fact I was kicked out of high-school and have the equivalent of a 9th grade education, im still learning punctuation and spelling as I go.
    I practiced and still do practice a lot, I draw everyday, clocking 5-6 hours when im slacking a bit or waiting on an assignment, 8-10 a day when on a project or contract. It used to be a lot more but since im daddy day-care for my daughter during the day I have less time.
    I practice from photos, and draw from life. I study how light behaves when it comes into contact with an object, I try and duplicate it. I spend a long time trying to make it as accurate as possible so when I sit down to create I can recall it.

    And thats it.

    If your willing to devote yourself and willing to go through the pain to get better, you will get better.
    Its that simple.

    I personally cant wait to get better, the learning *never* ends.

    Thanks so much for your interest, it means a lot to me.
    All the very best to you.

    I'd tell you good luck on getting hired but you won't be needing it. Now if you'll excuse me, i have to get back to work of my own, I suddenly feel very very small. Thank you for the inspirado!
    Inspiration is a 2 way street my friend, its comments like yours that push me to strive for better results and push myself to improve. Thanks you very much for the kind words, they mean a lot to me.

    Best wishes to you.

    Hey all!
    Here's a card I did for Fantasy Flight Games' Dungeon Expansion for thier Board Game Talisman.

    I think ill always hate deadlines, I never feel like I can give it my all or do my best, its the nature of the beast I guess.
    There were more cards but this one came out the best I think.

    I hope you guys dig it!

    Below that is going to be a post of a big 'ol collection of doodles that I thought some of you guys might get a kick out of seeing, ive been fortunate enough to have some of you guys be interested in enough in what I do to even ask, I hope its helpful!

    Thanks!

    Here they are!
    Ive numbered them and titled them in case anyone had any interest in a specific one.
    Crits are of course welcome but please keep in mind that these are are extremely rough, I do a lot of rescaling and repairing of anatomy/backgrounds/composition etc after ive layed down the raw feel of what I want.
    Most of these were done in a few hours, the majority of what I like to do takes place after the sketch.

    Enjoy!

    Nice work man. I can see you render out points of interest as an anchor point to continue on. This is just my segway into pointing out the nicely rendered butt in #15.
    Always a pleasure to View your work.
    All the Best.

    #6 was a practice study and I looked at a photo for that, and you can tell since its probably the most accurately lit.
    The rest is imagination and memory.
    Im glad you liked em, the pleasure is mine, im grateful people are interested!

    Hee hee!
    Yep thats exactly what I do, now that you mention it. I honestly dont have a set process, sometimes ill render out a whole background before I start with the figures, other times ill lay down something incredibly soupy as a background ( #16) around the primitive figures ive started on and developed.

    Thanks for your kind words and interest, I appreciate it!

    Whatever I'm going to write next is just going to be a rehash of all the compliments you've received so far. I love the feel of each work you've posted- they're just amazing! The cging style is just too gorgeous to describe. I don't know how you're going to get better but I'm looking forward to your future posts as well in this thread!

    Nice to know Im not the only one who doesn't have a set process either. even though it might do me some good to figure one out. Im always just fudging it and going with what little instincts I have.
