    truly beautiful

    I love the sheer depth in these, shift from bright to dark is done remarkably well and the level of detail is off the wall. Bravo!

    Ricardo - Thanks for the kind words. That piece started as more of a concept painting, than a matte painting, but slowly made it's way in that direction. I'm a photo retoucher, so the urge to use more photography is always there. I'm trying to find that happen medium between paint and photos, always. Really nice stuff on your site though. Humbled to hear from you.

    Thomas - I'm glad you like the older one! It was done to see how fast I could paint an environment, which usually lends itself to having cool brushstrokes. It's great to hear someone say they were inspired by my work. Thanks so much.

    Verehin - Floored to have you visit my book and actually like it! I found you in imagineFX a while back, and have been following ever since, so I'm really humbled. Keep up the awesome work, my friend!

    Jonathan - Thanks for visiting. It's great to hear a comment like that. I feel that the best environments lead people through them, and value and color are major ways to do that. Thanks a bunch for stopping by!

    More to come. Thanks for looking.

    Hi again, I love colors, I can't help it
    Really like your last 2 paintings again great colors and you set the atmosphere and mood perfectly, but maybe add a shadow to the ship in the bottom one, at the moment it kind of looks like a floater.

    JS - Haha, well thanks. Again, reaffirmation of my color palettes is a welcome comment.

    I do plan to add a shadow and vague reflection to the ship. The plan is to also paint a few smaller row boats going from the ship to the steps at the base of the cave, just to stay realistic with how these guys might have actually gotten from one spot to the other.

    Thanks a ton for checking back, though. I really appreciate it.

    I downloaded the Mudbox trial version on the suggestion of a friend. Pretty fun! I call him Treeman + Concept sketches

    Some really nice updates. I like the treeman design, I'm looking forward to seeing how that evolves. And excellent brushwork, specially in the images in posts 36 and 40.
