    Sorry, I forgot to say that the first is a cover for Games Workshop, the second for "Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine".

    You have some really nice work here. I like that the centaur is part zebra rather than the standard horse. The composition is the woman is really nice. No critiques here.

    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    All the colors and ..well everything related to the actuall work is really great...i have no critics for the last 2, BUT........i do have a little critic that haves nothing to do with the work in the first one.....the thing is, it would be nicer if the ork was more massive, i mean a bigger face and hands, and maybe more muscle.....but all that could mean also change the shape of the shoulder pads ( so they look thicker)..........again this is only a personal preference, but i think (profeccionally) that it could make a special touch to the ork character......for the other two, i absolutly love them, the first too if i wasnt so picky about orks

    SHAMAGIM: Yes, I had some troubles finding the right proportions of the orc, the AD made me correct it several times, I think the second cover I did for "Blood Bowl" (I'll post it soon), more or less same subject, was more succesfull this way.

    Thanks,

    TOM I'll soon put on line on my site the "prints for sale" section.
    rWDrk First I made some rough pencil sketches to fix the ideas, then I made the photographs of the characters (I attend a GYM and the trainers posed for me) with a digital camera. I imported all the pictures on my mac and finished the illo with Photoshop. It took me 8/9 days for each piece, more or less, using the monitor as I would with a canvas. I use Wacom tablet and optical pen, of course. It was really of help turning the canvas upside down or flip it horizontal to correct many mistakes.
    For the second picture I used as reference for the colors Tiepolo's "Mecenate presenta le arti ad Augusto" and Maulbertsch's "l'educazione di Maria" (sorry I don't know the translation in english of these titles). It's really helpful studying the Old Masters paintings, whenever I have doubts I keep looking at those masterpieces to find inspiration and the solution for drawing problems.

    I've gotta say that I like the first piece the best, although all of them are equally beautiful. I suppose I have a soft spot for an old tabletop game, as I used to play Warhammer 40K. The sky in the "Blood Bowl" piece is really an interesting contrast to the violence on the field, it's almost serene-- and I don't know if it's intentional but that Disney-esque castle in the background made me laugh. It's sinister and funny.

    That's interesting to read. I must admit, looking at it now, that you are partly right. Maybe that's why the AD asked me to make a more "rough" background for the second cover.

    These pics are good. When i saw the first pic, i thought immediately "Bloodbowl" and you confirmed that in a later post. There's only one crit i can offer, and it's not really a technical crit, but more about your choice of pose in the 2nd pic. The problem i have is that the man with gun has a pose that is not quite aggressive enough for the scene being depicted. What i mean by this, is that according to the scene, his mate has been shot, and he is turning around sort of bewildered ( it almost looks like he is offering the gun to the rider).The pose itself is perfect, but in the context of the overall picture, the movement should have a slight more "rigid with rage" sort of movement about it, as in his current state he doesn't look like he is really willing to use the gun, whereas the female rider has already demonstrated she is quite wiling to use the bow.

    Otherwise it's done damn good, the pose thing is really just me, i'm sure not everyone feels the same way about it.

    digby yes, you're right. But I'm happy with your comment because that was the feeling I wanted to transmit after I read the novel I had to illustrate. The captain, the man with the gun, is really surprised and unwilling to use the weapon, he is bewildered, he didn't expect to find life on Venus and is an astronaut, a peace bringer, not a soldier.

    Thanks for your words,
    - Max

    haha i remember Blood Bowl from my Warhammer days. well done i love the depth of the piece. like Shamagim though, i have a little prob with the orc. even tho its most likely at print already, i would have liked to have seen a diff choice in skin tones. this one is a little too yellow and as such a little too close to humans. from memory theyre sposed to be all organic, spawning from mushrooms. this guy shoulda been a little greener. also, your experience, strength or authority as an orc would be dependent on the shade of green, the darker the better. oh well love everything man am looking forward to more posts

    Well, lots of people from Ol' Aussie :-)! That's good my uncle and cousins live there, in Sydney, and I was there for a while when I was 19....
    So, the skin tones... yes, sounds interesting....I'll surely keep it in mind for the next cover, thanks!

    The instant I saw that first image it reminded me of Games workshop and Bloodbowl, and as I look down the thread Ah! it is.

    Really nice work, my favourite has to be the middle. Technically, pretty much perfect, with brilliantly emotive characters, beautiful colours. It really expresses the movement of the scene and somehow seems to show you more than just a still frame. Really nice idea as well.
