While Anthony Mitutoyo held his seminar in Cincinnati last month,
I was way back in Cotai Strip in Macau. He had some strong points
and shared some thoughts of enlightenment. What did I missed, who
knows, most probably a lot, and even more than a lot. You did wonders
again with the castle and the high quality mind molded plasticine. I
am surprised and dazed once again, such a sweet refreshing feeling.
You know, I have some kerchief to sell. It’s Michael Jackson’s kerchief
back from the days when he was in Budapest. I know you are good with
some people on eBay, so I thought you could help me sell it for a resonable
price. In forth I want to thank you for your assistance and help. And
your art, I will say it once again, it is wonderfully beautiful.
snake you crzay mang!

beautiful enviros got to agree with everyone eles the castle piece is a real stand out colours work very well so does the overall composition, the eagles, and the way you've used the smaller castle to create a sense of dramatic scale. Really nice work. Love this swamp piece to this machine looks crocodile/alligator inspired? real nice work the way you have limited your colour platte but let your values work for you. Keep it up

Ack! Ba- N- . . . Fagh! . . .∑¯Æ¿C®ç#!!?. ARghr . . . gurgle . . . die . . . . . .
What the heck V?! I leave for a few months, come back and BANG! I'm left a mile back in the dust! I mean, this one is just . . . pld: Awesome stuff! I have a lot of work (catching up) to do :|
I would say though, watch out for using too many small, hard brush strokes. Like this one I'd say is too scratchy all over. You need some open areas of smooth gradients, or some more blended transitions here and there. This one does it perfectly in my opinion - those little strokes work as awesome detail and contrast, but there's some nice areas for the eye to rest a bit. This one almost does it. I think if the strokes on the machine were rendered as actual forms rather than just lines on the surface, it would be superb. Plus maybe get rid of some of the spots in the foreground foliage.
and that's just my opinion.
keep on murdering it.

As usual, you are churning out some absolutely incredible work. Consider me a fan, although I do miss some of your photo-manipulations or 3d paint-overs.
Loving the dynamism of the car chase scene, looks absolutely cinematic. The white cocoon/worm airship image also looks fantastic. I could keep using superlatives for all of your works. Keep at it, mate.
I was whizzing by and caught sight of that white flyer thingy and had a flash back that I thought I would share - It was series of books that I read on Mars colonization (Red Mars I think) and the light weight airships that they used to explore (low G world) good one that matey. I am always happy when a picture takes me off on a mental trip down amnezia avenue or memory lane for those of you who own a functioning memory.
My continued support and praise shall woft on your general direction mate and all the best to you as always LOL stay well.
A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

Wow, that rainy night image is freakin awesome! I like how everything is seen through a window and then into another window. I think it’s much cooler than the original.
love that castle piece and the car, great work
my sketchbook- http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...=235313&page=3
hahaha funny comments! thanks!!
i havce a lot to answer for, here goes..
@ DNVN thank you. the inner rooms would be ambiently scaled so youd have 2km high great hall, town in the chandelier etc. for a wonderfully vivid story in this world, check out Feersum Endjinn by Iain M Banks, its amazing.
@yochanan; good suggestion sir, i tried it and it worked! i think atmospheric blue is my favourite colour you know.
@Eleyon: thank you my friend! actually i have very short attention span, hence everything is a bit messy, i like to spend maximum 6 hours on any one image; ie too long to call it a sketch, but too sloopy to call it finished hehe
@Vinicam thanks a lot dude!
@Greenhouse; no i didnt do them in 3d, and they came out looking a bit funny as i did the orthographics a bit hurriedly, something reviewers picked up on which was a tad embarassing. live and learn!!
@Krysjez: yep that watch is £450grand. which i find completely sickening. ha dont be scared, its amazing what you can do with a bit of practice and money!!
@wutang clam, love the name btw! hmm, i guess my tips would be get into 3d, it helped me learn a lot about lighting, and yeah just practice, find ways to make interiors interesting to you..
@asa, thank you homie!
@sony thanksss buuuuuddddyyyyyyyyy!!!
@Morkai; no those suggestions are spot on, and normally id agree, but the crazy thing about the castle in the story is that although its encrusted in towns and villages inside and out, the actual main sturcutres are all buiilt on that monsterous scale. the book implies it was a joke. i like to imagine Disney did it!
@lightship haha thank you mate! the answer is there are no giants. at least, i dont think so. but i might be wrong!
@crackpot, thank you very much for having a look!!
@snake you should write a book, youre crazy paragraphs always make me smile
@Jamie Romoser: thank Jamie! i wont stop until my hands fall off, which hopefully wont be for a while yet!
@Kungfoowiz; have ytou read Feersum Endjinn? if not youd love it!
@ccsears; thank you very much sir!
@King; right back at you homes!
@lightship, i coughed. then lolled!
@psage thanks!! i think i messed up the vanishing points a bit, next time itll be less brainbending!
@harmageddon aww thanks mang!
@chevy is always a pleasure to learn someone enjoyed something, so thank you a lot for commenting!
@Fetch haha well i think it was a total fluke, but thank you sir for your ongoing support!
@ja1037 thank you very much! I thought the crocodile thing might actually be like a wierd gun, or the place where a gun might have been unmounted from.. i wasnt entirely sure...
@ross ah i missed you man, your crits are bob on, ive tried to respond to them in this newer work, see if its made any difference..
@umbravita muchismo gracias senor!
@vritra, thank you for your kind words mate, and really glad to see youre still here too!
@flaskpost thank you!!
@GH thank you again! the green valley was just from spazzing around with big brushes, i really recommend it for generating ideas!
@siiillon, thanks a bunch mate!
@krysjez well part of the cost is the raw materials, gold etc, part is the difficulty of making the thing, and part is just because they can, and peolpe will pay it. for 700000 dollars you could pay you and all your friends way through university. its a crazy world..
@asa hehe you cant beat a good seagull!
@Jr Molcak thank you so much! inspiring people to draw, man thats awesome, i hope it helps!
@HK hehe apple's way more popular than jesus!
@takashmen, hmm you jmight be right. it always seems to push the blacks down about 10%. not sure why really..
@GH dude you got to try painting in highlights, its super fun!
@Kungfoowiz, haha another Angry Boys fan in da house??
@will123will thank you very much!
