    Every planet in the galaxy

    Its been 2 (edit 4) years since I rededicated myself to artmaking so I thought it time to start a new thread. Much older stuff can be found in my other thread. link?


    My education: a Bachelor of Fine Arts and certificate in 3d. Neither one helps much with my current work.
    I use photoshop almost exclusively with brushes from m@, inetgrafx, and myself. The main ones are chalk and soft/hard rounds but when doing landscapes I use a lot of custom brushes; trees, leaves, ground textures, clouds, rock, etc. Those are invaluable for quality and time-saving.
    I get inspiration from artists here on CA and elsewhere. My favourite concept artists are Ryan Church, Feng Zhu, Sparth, and Levi Hopkins.

    it's great to see a collection of some of your best environmental paintings! I would really like to hear more about what program and brushes you use and more about where you find inspiration and such.

Sometimes when you can't find what you want you'll have to make your own, ie, bubbles, fish.

    I love your stuff on here, its so cool, I hope to be at this level of awesomness I guess you could say lol, I didn't know how else to express that level at which your work is at.

    Egads our group has shrunk a fair bit. I'm not even sure I understand why Leo left. :/

    Well regardless good work. The new thread's off to a strong start. I'll try and get my own thread humming again and we might be able to salvage the group.

    Yep, new thread!
    The way you render rocks and mountains is savory, and the yellow plain and range under deep blue sky has a particular presence.
    Glad to see some line art again. Lines so clean invite coloring.
    The outer walls of the base on the latest picture look very low and poorly defensive where the terrain is higher.

    I left because I failed at updating again (was my PM that unclear?). The group needs fresh blood.
    But I'm still around to read your threads. See, I'm there!

    I am incredibly impressed with your environments... Both the mundane landscapes and the sci fi scenes. Your figure studies and portraits are great too.

    Real nice work there. Grats.

    Regarding the mars-base looking thing you posted, it's good but the base itself is so clean and featureless I initially thought you had just painted some dunes around a 3D geometry render with ordinary lamberts applied. I really like the way you painted the horizon and all that though.

    Edit: sorry for the inactivity again. I'll explain in detail when I update my thread, but I should have some new stuff coming around the bend in the next week.
