I am a big fan of the Halo games, so did this piece of fan art for fun. The grunt characters are some of my favorites, not only do they have tons of personality, but overall I love the design. Since I own several of the McFarlane Halo Grunt toys, I did a little photoshoot, and used the photos as the basis for the character's pose. Painted in about 3-4 hours, the last couple of hours were mostly subtle color corrections, usually I start off with a pretty strong color scheme in mind, this one ended up coming together at the end of the piece.
Hello hello! Been following this thread for a while. The work in here is simply amazing. I just started digital painting about six months ago and it has been VERY challenging. But in a good way . I've been practicing ship design and finally feel like I'm getting the hang of it. I've got a loooong way to go to get where you guys are though. Anyways, here's my latest quickie. About an hour give or take 15min in painter. I didn't intend to post it, which is why it's just a flat side shot, and I sort of just threw some stars and a random planet in there for you guys so it wouldn't just be a ship on a black background. Any helpful crits would be much appreciated. Woot woot for first time posting in conceptorg!
Come on guys, keep this thread alive! Post your stuff! Some of the best pieces on this site are on this thread. The energy and life in these speed paintings are incredibly inspiring. In an effort to keep things going, here are two pieces I just did tonight. Definitely not up to the quality of stuff I've been seeing on here, but we gotta start somewhere right?
The tank is a ref piece and I spent about 15min on it. I'm trying to to do super quick ref pieces to help my brush economy. The old portrait I did with no ref, and it took about an hour give or take 15min. I was pretty deep into my crown and cokes by then so it's a little messy
