    Smile Frank Hong_concept art and matte painting dump, new updated May 27, 2009 at #17

    hey everybody. I haven't posted here for a very long time now. almost a year i realized.

    anyways, i've been working non-stop on my digital painting. and i picked some pieces from this year to share with you guys.

    here goes..

    My blog
    http://frank-hong.blogspot.com/

    my gallery at:

    http://frankhong..com/

    Thanks ! please feel free to comment.


    and quick note for those who care, the snow mountain painting is referenced from Whit Brachna's video, you can read the "artist's comments" and other credits in my gallery.

    after watching Whit brachna's snow painting video, i decided to test my techniques with the newly acquired brush set. it's a much more opaque oil color-ish set, works beautifully with the traditional painterly style. I haven't completely sat through MrB's video yet, but i plan to do that at least once at some point, he talks about a lot of great tips on painting.

    Really like how painterly your images are. The first image is really interesting, how long did that take?

    I must agree, many of these look like they were painted with conventional brushes on canvas. And thats really cool that you can pull that off.
    Nice work.

    Dahami:

    Thanks! glad you like it.

    pandanus:

    That one tooks a good over 10 hours, used photographs so quite a bit the base work is done fairly quickly. thanks!

    growing pains:

    Thanks!, i always tries to study from the concept masters, how they establish atmosphere and such. and speedpainting is a good practice for that.

    Duman:

    thanks man, yea i try not to over polish or render every part to a equal degree, and leaving a bit of the image undefined. i think as long as the domiant subject matter is readable, the rest can be filled in by the viewer as they please.

    These are so pretty, I could cry. . . I absolutely love the colors. The realism kicks the "lets figure out how these work" logical portion of my mind into work, and I question the supports for the rail road track.
