Here are some paintings i did earlier this year for NCsoft.
These early development paintings didn't make it into the cut as ideas changed, so i got permission from them to release a few. There are more to this series, so i'll upload additional ones later. These 4 are all part of the same environment, thus the similar lighting / color scheme.
My painting technique has changed a lot since the time i did these. Looking at them now, they need another pass of detail and refinement....and some figures here and there for scale.
painted / sketched in Painter...
and some initial linework....
and thanks again NC for letting me post these....=)
Awesome and inspiring as always. Thanks for sharing these.
Fantastic, are these for lineage by any chance or for an unannounced project?
just marvelous paintings!
beautiful work Feng. particulalry enjoy the 2nd, with the building looming up.
lovely...really lovely, i like the way the grays go with the blues in the second one.
Awesome work. I have a question, do you use a ruler on the actual tablet or is there some kind ruler tool in painter.
Awesome and thanks.
Your stuff is amazing and I got your DVD's. I'm thinking about going to school for industrial design or something like that. Great blues.
do u have premade perspective grids for stuff like this?
Sweetness. What amazes me is how you keep that sketchy quick feeling with the technique you are using. You are shift clicking lots of these lines right? Or since you can turn the page in painter can you actually draw more?
Awww, man!! Sorry about that. Yeah,thats gonna stain.
Super cool man...
Those are really well done.

Oh very inspirational work. Especially the first one I just got pulled into it. Thanks for showing this to us.
Do not forget to *enjoy the sauce*.
Feng you are the master of concept art business
dramatic and immensely moody. liking it.
Some nice vantage points and designs...wow.
I still can't figure out how you're sketching those lines in Painter, freehand, on a tablet even. Who else did you work with on this project? If you're at liberty to say, that is. Thanks for the post.
thank you for the kind replies!
Davi: no, these are not for Lineage. It's early development stuff for another game cinematic....
yeah, drawing straight lines in painter takes some practice. Took me about a month to get the hang of it. You can hold shift to get 90/45 degree lines...but any other angle you have to do freehand. The screen-rotation makes it a lot easier tho.
I dont have any pre-made perspective grids...but i always start my environments w/ a horizon-line and some vanishing points....
here's another un-used painting.....a pretty standard village in snow....=)
the way you painted the horizon adds to the coziness. nice effect.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
Amazing stuff as always....well.. keep em coming!
My God ull always be my hero!
