    hey, welcome to the boards
    my first thought when looking at these is "he's painting over 3d renders"

    literally. that was my first thought, not "ooh, cool environment" or "nice design"
    what im getting at is that it seems to me that when you're painting over a 3d mockup, you'd want to hide the 3d as much as possible. that way its more of an aide instead of a crutch.
    your work ins't hiding it that well... so much so that its kind of a distraction.
    i wish i had more time to explain, but i gotta crash out
    later bro, keep posting!

    Regardless of how you made them, I still think they look very good. The forest one is especially pleasing. Beautiful colors and textures.

    I have to admit that I also don't like the technique here as much as some of the environments by the other artists here. They just look a little too synthetic for my tastes. I do think they are good ideas, visually, and a "concept" is just an idea so from that perspective they're pretty good, but the style/technique is not my favorite.

    Hey guys....
    thanks for the comments awesome stuff

    Josh - sorry for the misunderstanding mate - no 3d was used in any of these ones actually - im soooo terrible at 3d so its really not a good idea anyway...sketch-up is about as far as my 3d capabilities go
    these are all just done with a solid perspective grid and good ole photoshop paint!

    but on the flipside - i know i totally need to loosen up!!

    Hey fish032, this is an interesting start to your posting. Some nice paintings here. The forest one has some really nice texture and colour.

    In terms of what TheDirtSyndicate is on about. I guess he is kinda right. Ok your not using a 3d package and painting over the renders. but to me it looks like your using things like the polygonal lasso tool in photoshop. and perhaps relying on it too much? this is something i do myself and am trying to avoid it, or if i do use it, i paint over it to give it more of an artistic flare. If that makes sense! Its most noticeable you've used this method in the first 2 images. With the last image here It looks like you've overlayed bits of photograph on it. Which is fine, just look out for it being too pixely and match the scale of the image proportionally to the structures. good work overall, be nice to see more over the coming months

    The last one is really nice. I would be more careful when overlaying those textures though. It looks a bit rushed in some places.

    As for such techniqe in general. To me it's fine but with placing textures carefully to keep the form solid and putting a bit of paint on top to loose the rough feel. Of course it's better to do more natural painting but some textures are really hard to achieve with more traditional methods. For example painting tiny chequered pattern or metal netting on floor would be really hard. At the same time giving up such more complicated textures really limits the design possibilities. And I believe that when doing a design you need to use whatever is possible to present the idea instead of trying to be artistic.

    really good ideas here

    when your overlaying photos/textures i would recomend to go back and paint over or erase some parts of the photo/texture eit will sometimes make the photos/textures look hand painted

    hope this helps
