Wow! Leaps and bounds. I liked your stuff to begin with but your work is improving rapidly - very awesome stuff. I really love the perspective on the recent one with the bike.
I like that you're doing more work with colour, I think it's the area that you most need to work on - most of the time it looks like you're colouring black and white, which can look good (as you've shown), but it'd be great to see you use colour differently for your lights, darks and midtones, which isn't easy to do when you work on it in black and white first.
Flip - yeah its hard to maintain the value composition when using lot of colours. It kinda messed up that bike pic actually - still much to learn.
Quick_Sketch - well I try not to draw inspiration from those sourses. I follow certain design rules that work for me but this can lead to familiar looking concepts - I really want to push for an origianal look to my work. I get tons of inspiration from music. I listen to music (I love over the top 80's rock) and I can see other worlds and stories and compositions etc.
Anyway though you guys might like to see a model I've been working on

Damn Andrew, you seem so focosed. Does it really take such amazing all around skill to land a job in the industry? I feel so blurry in my goals when i see your stuff. No need to be nice to me - its a drive to see good stuff.
Fellah - dude you needn't bow before anyone - you rock
liam.c - my main aim is to develop concepts that people would love to experience in games and film, so your comments really made my day! - Cheers Liam!
Dude your sh*t is sick! Awesome, all of it! The bike above is my personal favorite thus far--but I'm a biker, so I'm biased.
I have a question:
How large are your files for printing (working resolution)?
--I'm learning this digital painting thing and I'm wondering if I should paint at 150 PPI to make the working file smaller and scale up the drawing to 300 ppi for printing (13x19 prints @ 300 dpi on an epson inkjet).
Thanks and I'm looking forward to more of your work!
wow. First time check onto your thread: first the page 1, then 5, and then 1,2,3,4,5. Everything looks pretty. I was amazed about your 3d skills. May I ask, did you first became and 3d artist or did you draw 2d before that? My own selftaught "career" eh started with couple of years with 3d stuff and then when I was totally bored to do crappy designs or model others designs I started to draw. Feels like I have lost those years.
I really love this. Keep up the performance!

libbery - keep your baby maker away from my paintings Cheers dude
bengonzalez - Cheers man - I try to capture a moment of action in those pieces and sometimes the methods I use can make me lose control. Like the Bike piece - I was really happy with the bike but I lost control of the composition with the background - I really don't like it now.
maknien - Thanks man - I've been drawing all my life. I started 3d a few years ago. I'm 21 by the way.
neoknocker - Inspired by so many things but I endevour to keep my stuff fresh and original. Cheers bud
Hey man, I love the biker pic. Reminds me of the scene from Akira where he's hallin up the concrete. Great textures on... well, on everything, all your surfaces seem to have really well done textures. A great perspective peice.
