    Weekly Character Mahem!!! new Magic the Gathering cards pg2

    in the interest of making time for my own art and eventually prints of them to sell i and my coworkers have taken to doing the weeklies just for fun during our lunch breaks and this weeks chow topic was so good i just couldnt resist
    self portrait s a super villain? hell yes
    i spent most of the day today wrapping it up at the magic the gathering conflux prerelease event in houston texas and, damn, anyone out there who has done one of these events as the guest artist signing cards and selling prints should have told me what happens there hahahaha
    i showed up with a (borrowed) sharpie and my laptop.........
    nothing else
    i feel like such a moron
    nobody told me i should bring PRINTS TO SELL!!!!!!!!!
    i had a great time but missed out on a good opportunity to make a little extra scratch for the modbook pro i so desperately desire that
    it haunts me in the night hahahaha
    the fans were nice and i must have signed at least 1000 cards (seriously i am not kidding! i have heard the pro events are even worse and will destroy even the most powerful of wrists!!!)
    do any of you people selling prints out there have some good printer info i could get? maybe postcards as well?
    but anyways
    here we go
    the pic, detail and a image only tut
    i will put a psd up for DL soon if anyone wants it but thats a bit hard to put together right now so i will wait untill i get home hahah
    i may go in and add a bit of tech-ing maybe some demolished bilboards or even bodies in the rubble
    but for now im damn happy and happy its over hahaha
    let me know what you think
    i know i dont say this often enough conceptart.org, and for that i am sorry
    so here it is.......i love you
    this site has done so much for my career in the last few years and i want you all to just imagine where you would be without this community
    its been such a great career guide, learning resource and playground
    dont take it for granted and it will help us all grow
    oh the image is called "nervous circuits" named for
    an amazing song by this post-whatever no-wave awesome band from the mid nineties called the VSS
    check them out

    The perspective is so neat, I'd even say perfect. You truly achieved in giving tis piece depth and dimension.
    If I had to crit only one thing though, it would be the hair. Compared to his beard, it looks unfinished, undetailed. It's part of the central part of the image; the face.
    apart from that, I can only say: VERY nice work. I like.

    Great image, and the WIP is very nicely presented.

    You are totally right about this website. It's scary to think what I'd be doing if I hadn't discovered this site. I'd probably cry myself to sleep every night and think life sucks because I'd have no guidance or idea what I really want to do with my life.

    Fantastic image and great character. I love how you managed to seamlessly integrate the mechanical tentacle into the casual pose to really highlight it as an extension of his body.

    I said it before I'll say it again... That is freaking awesome man. Love yer work ;D

    Also, I can see you're process but I can't understand how to colour images properly. I done a CHOW piece but I kept the black lines and the colour's + shading are not very strong at all. You able to give any tips? On how to apply good looking colour?

    well step 2 is a hard light layer to sort of use as an underpainting
    then i doge it a little bit to establish lighting
    then a few soft light and overlay layers with mid value circular gradients of color to establish the tone
    then painting on soft light layers with lighter colors to push the lighting some more
    after that i merge it all and then just start painting in color
    occasionally using gradient map adjustment layers set to soft light color and overlay to further define my color
    its really a big experiment until it feels right
    which of course is completely subjective hahahah

    This is pretty cool. The color scheme and design of the suit are really remeniscant of Metal Gear Solid 4. I'd crit it, but really, anything I see that bugs me is so miniscule that it's really not even worth pointing out. Great job!

    Totally rad and all that! I would modify the lighting on the thumb of the left hand just a teensy tiny bit, so that the cigarette is more easily seen. I looked for more than 20 seconds at least, trying to make out where it was, because I knew it was there (by the flame and hand position) but I just couldn't see it.

    absolutely fantastic!
    i love the color schemes you use, aha i always feel surprised by them.
    I´m not sure if i like her hair, but i love the rest, especially the poited nosed creatures! The image has a greath depth, is a pleasure to look at!
    I also love how her "costume" is a part of her skin, not just something placed over. nice nice =)
