    Some new works - update 7.13

    Hi Concept art,
    I haven't posted here for some time (actually nearly two years). I've been trying to develop my style and skills further after very useful feedback on MADE symposium. Here is a selection of my more recent stuff.
    It is illustrations I made for: Paizo, Blizzard, few fan arts (Hulk, Darkness inspired knight) and illustrations I made for fantasy books.
    Thanks for your interest!

    I recognize some of the characters from the Pathfinder RPG, one of my favorite tabletops. Well done, man. Looks great.
    So, it has come to this.

    Great work. It all looks familiar and yet fresh in how clean your lines and colors are. I love the WoW art work.
    In search of the mythical art job!

    Ace!
    I love the fact how easy you can switch between different styles.
    D&D's are top; I know how demanding are those. 5 stars.
    How long does it take for a big ones (first 3) ?

    Thanks a lot man!
    The first 3 are the most complex illustrations I've done so far. I'm always trying to make those within a week, but these took longer as I'm tryng new things etc. Maybe something like 8 days, don't know exactly as I'm usually working on more things at the same time.

    I think your style fits perfect for D&D world. I was studying you paintings today and I realized that you successfully managed to translate complexity of Wayne Reynolds drawings into the digital paint, something I was struggling with a lot.
    Do you work from a greyscale painted shapes, or you go with a linework and color? Do you have a sketches for any of these pieces that you can share, I have a feeling you can help me solve some of my problems while working on mass scenes:
    1.If I start drawing , it's taking too long
    2.if I start from a paint it's never well defined.

    Any help?

    thanks ferrando!
    josic: I'm glad you think so.
    I've had the same issues when approaching complex paintings. Line sketch never works without problems for me, I rather work with shapes from the start. On multiple character paintings I like to work in more layers, I discovered it works better for me. Here some of my process pics (it should be pretty self explanatory): http://michalivan.blogspot.com/

    here is a drawing I did yesterday it's different than my usual stuff, but was a lot of fun. Inks colored in Photoshop (and yes I'm a big Mignola fan )

    hey, thanks, that helps a lot! Now I can see what I was doing wrong. It's necessary to start with clean flat shapes in mass scenes, I think it's the right approach,
    cheers

    Badass stuff! I like how powerful and dynamic your compositions are.
    And great work on proportions, my favourite picture is ogre magi.
    Keep up!
