    Some of you might have seen an old version of this one on the first page of the thread.
    I decided to redo it, with new fangled tricks and techniques. All of my experience from the last 2 years must come in handy, right? Right??

    I'm thinking of axing that waterfall, because its kind of a desert planet, so what would be the point of wasting water?
    I'm not quite happy with the structures yet, but at least that sick red hue is gone...


    what do you think?

    Damn dude, your environments are AWESOME, do you just started studying from photos ?

    rem92: thanks.
    Yes you start by painting copies of photos until you understand whats happening, which literally takes years.

    I really like your work, it's really well done and easy on the eye.

    I always bookmark sketches like these as they're examples of good colour palettes and I really have problems getting my colours down.

    Thanks for sharing your work!

    I've been too unsatisfied and depressed lately to spend much time on art. The lack of comments doesn't help either.
    There's just so many artists on here trying to get noticed, it's hard to build an audience.

    Wow! all these environments are epic! I especially love that jungle where you used some actual images for the matte painting.

    It's good to be back on CA after the long downtime.

    Thanks Mihail and Pete for your comments.
    Pete: The forest picture is not actually a matte painting, I did not use any photos, just some custom brushes, a couple of which were extracted from photos. It's a couple steps removed from the origin.



    So this is the new bulk uploader?


    The new bulk uploader sucks.


    They make it a chore to post images...


    anyhoo,
    enough negativity.
    Here's some studies of metal objects and and ice. I kind of suck at using a variety of materials, hopefully I can improve that.

    I'm back!

    Hey all.

    It's been a rough couple weeks, had a kidney stone, in bed for 9 days, lots of pain.
    I'm back to normal now, and I've been working on new pictures.

    Wow your sketchbook is intense! Dont ever stop!! Your are doing really good. Everything is looking sweet! My only suggestion would be to try drawing those shapes/buildings you did early in sketchup by hand. Like draw some buildings or your own orginal design and them draw them again from a different angle. Repeat this for some vechicles as well kinda of like the student artwork you see coming from Feng Zhu's school. Im sure you can do it, your skill is way up there! Keep going!!

    Kidney stones. Ouwch. I really hope I´ll never have to deal with something like that. The new updates look epic. Good stuff. Keep it going

    A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.

    Thanks joe and bbwolf. I've been meaning to draw more architecture, there is some in my paper sketchbook but I haven't shown all of it here.


    Have you tried photoshop's 3d tools? I've been experimenting with the 3d in cs4. No doubt there are limitations, but I'll bet someone has figured out how to use it in digital painting. Remember the smudge tool? Custom shapes? A lot of people thought they were useless, myself included, but then somebody showed that was not the case.

    One tool is turning greyscale into mesh. Basically extruding white and recessing black to create a three dimensional form.

    Works best with smooth gradients:
    Name:  3dmeshfromgreyscale.jpg
Views: 197

    The mesh will be bumpy no matter how smooth your map.


    Here I painted a textured surface with brushes and then converted to a sphere (top right) and plane (bottom right).
    The results are...weird. Typically high detail maps will produce something like spiky hair.
    Name:  texture test.jpg
Views: 301
Size:  115.3 KB

    One tool that is useful is turning a layer into a 3d postcard which can then be rotated into perspective.
    Sphere mesh can be useful with bump/texture applied.
    That's what I know so far, I haven't tried cs6 which has some more options.

    ---------------



    Here's a small planet made with lunarcell plugin for PS, then painted over with textures.
