Decided to re-register under my full name, and share some fresh art.
First, - The Raven -
A cover I did for Graphic Classics.
The bundle features various comic adaptations
of Edgar Alan Poe tales.
Second, concepts I've done for a Dutch rockband called 'Within Temptation'.
Next, a couple of brushed-up drawings:
Various studies and concepts:
I had no clue where I was going with this drawing... Not sure if I'm allowed to post this one here aswell.
Last, 2 paintings from earlier this year:
a rough paint:
a demon head:
All paintings were done in PS. I hope you've enjoyed some of my work.
Stories that go with the art can be found on my portfolio page.
I've been taking art way more seriously since the first CA workshop in April 2004, and have been painting since then.
I still consider myself a beginner in the field of illustration and concept-art.
I welcome advice on how to expand my portfolio, and crits to better my work.
take care, Ramon.
I especially like your colour choices. The raven drawing is very nice, but I personally would have liked it to be a bit more refined, particularly the raven's feathers. When I think "ravens", shiny black coat of feathers is the first thing that comes to mind.
The first one of your brushed-up drawings is the one I like most, but if asked I wouldn't be able to say why exactly. The colours, the abstract elements, they all work really well for me in that one. Beautiful work.
It's a crazy coincidence, but just today I was looking for the name of a song which turned out to be "Mother Earth" by "Within Temptation". Never heard of them before. Found it by googling the lyrics And now this. Perhaps it's a sign... 8)
Those banners are awsome. I'd love to have those hanging on my wall. I could see them as decorative panels on a set of folding doors or cabinets or something like that.

These are good, the only one i saw a with problem was the 2nd banner, the actual banner part is good, but the inner parts seem sloppy and less rendered as the rest of the banner. You should go back and tighten them up and maybe go for a little bit more realism. But the rest are good.
Love your 'brushed up' drawings and concept sketches. Great colour work.

- ceberae :
Your right about the Raven not being too Raven-like. I wanted to give the bird some kind of a twist, not your ordinary Raven. I think I might have overdone it.
Glad you like the brushed-up drawing. And yeah! Your coincidental encounter with WT is a sign!
- Gilead :
Thx. I'm glad you like the banners.
- phlem117 :
I'm not sure I get what you mean. Keep in mind the conceptual approach of the designs, for fleshing out is not a nescecity.
- SEVENS :
Glad you like those brushed up drawings.

Yo Ramon!!! How are you doing? It's great to have you back.
Your new work is great, really solid. It seems you've been working pretty hard.
It paid off, of course you must keep honing your skills. Your shading have evolved really great. Also your figure and anatomy.
Seriously, keep up the hard work. And post more.
dadamafia : Thx man (how come everybody keeps picking that one as a fav?)
Diego : Hey man, cool to hear from you! I'm glad you see progress in these images. I will definately keep at it. I hope all is cool with you, take care.
ugh, no matter how many times i see that demonhead, the details and smoothness wannatouchyness of it's forehead keeps amazing me, great stuff once again, we have to start our sessions together again.
very nice I especially like the one thats your avatar picture but the first one with the row of different heads up the top then one big one below them the hed looking right furthest right under her bottom lip it doesnt seem to go in far enough really like the raven one too beautifl colours and detail
