    I like those a lot. If only you could be more specific and form. Right now each of those images looks awesome! But I don't trust them. Have you made conscious design decisions? Or are thoses merely 2D collages of cool looking forms? Do you know how these look from all different angles?
    If you could show these - I know I'll repeat myself by saying 'truely awesome' - vehicles from different angelse... ... You'd be the MAN!

    btw - you also said 'matte paintings' but none showed up in my browser. So to be safe - I'm referring to the only ones I saw, namely a yellow wheeled vehicle laying on the side with two dudes repairing it and a big ice-glider...

    I think these are very cool. i understand what Lewiston is saying, to a degree, but I think a bit of ambiguity is fine. If you were doing conceptual art and designing ships for movies, games (especially) where the form needs to be fully realized and solidly designed from all angles, I could see the need for what Lewiston is talking about. Sometimes, however, it's fine just to make cool looking images and shapes. Many sci- fi illustrators, very famous ones, do this. Lewiston's work, which I looked at, is more of the Ron Cobb approach, engineer and design from the ground up and make it practical but still make it look cool. That's just one approach, it's not the only one. Just my opinion.

    May be "quick and dirty" but I think it is great. Like the bike too, although I prefer your others as they are more original in concept.

    Your designs are cool but your characters and backgrounds look like you've just used photos and the 'Cutout' Filter.

    NeecHMonkeY: that is exactly what I did in this case. There is a bit of paint over here and there, but yes - the "Arcticus" definitely needs some more attention.
    As for the characters, I am not hiding that I use references. Sometimes I also use my Alias primitive manequin (made from spheres) to pose properly for me. On the other side, there were always analog sketches made first and then I looked for the reference. Wanna see them?


    lewiston: I can obviously post different angles for all designs here, since they all live as 3d models too.

    In all cases here, there are some specific goasl for all images here: To show a design in specific scenario and make it work as a "standalone picture" is one of them - though they are just small part of a bigger project. That's why I post them here and not at ID or CAD forums.

    I really appreciate all your feedback here and attention you pay to this thread, especially here on this forum. Thanks a lot!
