    Best images to date Randis! I love them. That golem piece is a hot concept. Technical execution is exellent. Thanks for sharing Randis. Good luck with those entries.

    You cool skin tones and textures in the vampire piece just blow me away. I'm deeply envious (in a good, inspired way).

    Usually I prefer pics with a more painted look, but this still looks reaaaaly good.
    Especially the vampire piece. The diver has a very good lighteffect as well, but looks to much like a 3d model (on the helmet)

    Do you have some earlier VIPs of the vampire pic ?

    Wow your final renders are just fantastic! Definitely a big inspiration to keep moving forward in my work. I was wondering how much reference you use and what kinds. You mentioned that you used the live models for the vampire piece, and it seemed to really pay off. Same goes for some of the 3d modeling/texturing.

    you are a GREAT artist, Randis... and saying that i feel my words too poor.
    I am overwhelm by your chromatic and realism, by the expressions and so carefully details. I just enjoy your work incapable even of envy

    Wow guys, thanks so much!
    I dunno what to say honest, feel a bit shy now and i don't feel they are that good like you say. I guess i will have to work my ass off now to keep up haha

    @ Vaejoun

    Yes i saved some steps, thats fairly early WIP.
    Let me attach it here

    The diver helmet has a 3d base, its still VIP, i need to paint out some shades a lot more and tone down the 3dx max look here.

    @Sirsketchalot

    No, i wrote real model, not life model. I mean i had real, naked chicks here not 3ds max models.

    First i made some rough thumbnail to show the girls the idea, based on that and my direction they were posing, i made some quick sketch and shoot some photos. i had only 2 girls so one was reused obviously.
    Based on that i started the painting using the reference loosely and mainly for anatomy.
    When i was at about 70% i had my GF pose hands and feet for me, i always work those out late.
    Colors changed a lot during the process, lighting too.
    Backgrounds and some smaller details changed a couple of times.
    I had some focus testing with many people and had some useful critics from other artists.

    Good grief Randis. You are like some kind of masterpiece machine. I love all your ideas and the quality of the finishes is just outstanding.
    That Golem idea is phenomenal. That's my favourite. Very original and so well done.
    The vampire piece is gloriously atmospheric.
    The diver piece is superbly handled.

    Do you ever sleep?

    @rickardwestman

    Thanks man! In fact i still have 3 other entries, but i did not finish them, i might post the wips for fun later.

    @Nlincoln.renall

    Thanks man but i am pretty sure that there will come some awesome pics submitted last minute... as usual. It's not like everyone posted already.
    I should have waited too and polished my work more tho i have no more time, lots of work needs to be done.

    I might rework the golem pic tho... not sure

    @ Nickillus
    Thanks man! Glad you like em!
    I do sleep tho not at the usual times, days pass by, have no feeling for time any longer.

    WOW my jaw is still on the floor. You were'nt kidding when you said you loved vampires & it shows in your work, you are SERIOUSLY GOOD. All three images look incredible. I have a question which i hope you haven't been asked already, how many hours does it take you to paint one image? I'm truely glad to be able to see the WIP of such awesome creations. I wish you good luck, to tell the truth, you deserve to win IMO.

    Holy Shit Randis!! Those last Three images are AMAZING! I am torn between being awed and gutted at the same time lol. Awed at the super skills and gutted that my Newborn work is seriously lacking in comparison. If you don't mind me asking, how long have you been painting?

    @ Oscar Austin

    Thank you! I didn't use any of my life sketches for this paint, i made some roughs but only as a note and i think i didnt even look at those during the whole paint.
    I was mainly referencing the snapshots i took, as you see the base was rather rough.

    @ ManaBurn
    hehe thanks man.
    Didn't try to recreate the shapes exactly, only concentrate on the feel.
    If you paint from life models you have to capture the details as qyick as possible, can not have people pose fpr you for 2 weeks without movement, taking shots you dont really need a precise under painting, you paint rough shapes and work out details and fix and refine thing during the process, same as you do a quick painting without detailed line work.
    a digital canvas has lots of advantages. can crop things cut and move around elements, change colors easily.

    @ miycko
    Thank you! Yep , love vampires. I read all kind of vampire novels, all i can get in my hands. finished 13 books in the last 4 months only and many more before that.
    I also work on a game about vampires, zombies and other monsters with my dev team. i will put up the site for the game online in a month or so.

    I am not exactly sure how many hours i have been spending on each image. Vampire took longest, was working intensively for 2 weeks on it. Golem took me 1 week and the diver was done in 2 days because building the helmet base in 3d saved lots of time.

    @ WOMD
    Thanks man!

    @zimfin
    Thank you! I started drawing a lot when i was 13-14 i think, that is 18 tears ago. with 15 i started to paint, watercolor and all kind of other traditional media.
    with 16 i started freelancing and painting for a dice and paper rpg production house. till i was 20 i was doing mainly gallerie art.
    Digital imaging i started when i was very young too, i do not remember the year but i know that we had this monochrome apple computer in school, we learned drawing circles by typing in coordinates and doing some sort of asci images too...
    later i was using all kind paint apps on amiga, when i got my first pc i was also looking into 3d things, started with morray, povray. Got into photoshop more seriously when a friend got a SGI workstation with photoshop 3.?
    Painting with tablet i started when i was 22 i think, had to learn drawing from scratch and until today did not master it well. i still see a gap between drawing on paper and drawing with tablet.

    Amazing work! I like the concept of golem best though your finished product of the turning is fantastic. Can't wait to see the final products.

    thanks for sharing your history & the WIP thumbs from the turning with us, it's good to know that it's possible to produce such an image from pencils. i guess there's still a lot of years to go before us newbie's can get the kind of experience you're at, lots work, practice, sweat & all that stuff. i visited your website & the stuff you've done looks awesome, i wish you'd upload some high res stuff for us to oggle at

    @art80

    Thanks! I hope i will finish the diver in time, i still did not touch the image...
    and i probably will not submit the baby image, no time to finish it. 3 entries pratty much enough, anything else would be paranoid? haha

    @miycko
    Thank you! i am not sure what you meant with "that it's possible to produce such an image from pencils"
    Does not have to be that many years really, i see many people who are a lot better at their age than i was at that time. Its all about motivation and how much time you spend on your work. Most people who start out are a lot slower but they also spend less time on their work, its a huge difference finishing one image in 2 days or investing 2 weeks tweaking.
    The pics on my site are small, probably to small.. i will have a new website soon, will have higher res images then.
    Thanks for looking.

    Hey Randis,

    Been a long time (since Eatpoo forums). Nice looking stuff there.

    I'm wondering though. What's your process? How much of it is drawn/painted, 3D, and photo reference if any at all? I remember your stuff way back when, and I've often wondered how the heck you got it so clean and well cut.

    I myself use all sorts of stuff to convey the visual message the fastest depending on the style I'm going for; I'm curious what steps were taken to get to your final results for any of your images.

    I know you posted the work up/WIP for the vampire image, but the final image in the WIP looks like a huge leap to the final result. I'm curious as how you got there. If it's an artists' secret though, no worries!
