Hello my name is Chun Lo, I'm a 21 years old freelance illustrator.
I'm very interested in specializing as a creature illustrator. I've had freelance experience with Fantasy Flight Games before but would love to broaden my array of professional clients, especially to work with Wizards of the Coast and Paizo Publishing.
Currently I'm still studying hard and trying my best to improve with each and every piece. Things I think I need to improve on the most is probably composition and anatomy both of which I'm currently focusing on as much as possible. I would love to hear some advice since I'm struggling to understand composition.
If anyone would like to do a paint over it would be more than welcomed
Great designs and details work ! And you have only 21 waow...
The first thing I noticed about this was the references to the recent block of Rise of the Eldrazi from Magic: the Gathering brought to you by Wizards of the Coast. After reading that you have clients like Wizards of the Coast--I was extremely impressed with your work. I have nothing, but positive feedback!
If you're interested in learning more about composition, bring up a bunch of images from a master (Frazetta for example) and look at the image purely as black, white, and chunks of color. Maybe even put it in photoshop and max out the contrast. That may make it easier to see how he leads the eye around the painting in exactly the way he wants - which subsequently adds to the mood of the image.
Your work is craaazy awesome, keep it up.
I think you've got a great understanding of light, form and texture, and you are no slouch when it comes to rendering your work out. I think however that some of your illustrations are teetering on overworked. There's a great amount of detail, but as such, it gets a little jarring and there's no real clear focal point.
I think compositionally the piece that appears to best put together is the one third from last. There's enough going on to keep people interested but not so much that they can't focus. Nothing is really clashing.
But then in the one directly below it, I know that the creature and its action are important, but it feels like it was stuffed into the image, you can't define a lot of it, and on the right side the snow is mixing into the clouds and we lose a lot of depth. Its hard to tell exactly whats happening, other than MONSTER! Then the person and their creature (is that a pokemon???) seem to be an afterthought.
