    Photographic Art

    Hi everyone. For a long while I've been producing two kinds of art, normal digital painting for clients like Wizards of the Coast, Spiral Direct, etc, and art based heavily on photography. I'm in a mental mess about having two disparate styles/techniques, especially since some clients are starting to ask for it, and it looks like I might (hopefully) be getting a licensed calendar out next year. Not sure if I can bring them together somehow at some stage, or if I should pursue one on its own. Anyway, here's some of my recent(ish) photo-based art, I hope you like it, opinions and crits welcome.

    sweet stuff. What do you mean by photo based? Are they digital paintings over photos? If so it's extremely well done, almost to the point were I can hardly notice.

    Thank you. Typically I photograph people in a controlled lighting setting, then do the rest of the picture in any way I can - straight painting, other photographic elements, 3D (less now than I used to, and only if necessary), etc. I will work over the photographed model sometimes, but not to deliberately make them look painterly, more for effect or to tie them in with other elements.

    Nice work! I think you shouldn't worry about combining styles, you should do it. I'd like to see something with more integration between photo and painted. A snake bodied lady or an elaborate unreal costume. You do good work and merging painting with photos either works or doesn't and I'm digging yours here. Keep going!

    Also, I want your watercolor tool presets haha (I emailed you)

    Thanks Fersteger, here's an older work which demonstrates a more complex character. I've also done some Shadowrun RPG work like this which I'll be able to post next year, which features extreme photo manipulation (trolls).
