Hey guys, here is a concept piece I did for Cheyenne Mountain. They are developing Stargate Worlds. I am happily going to be doing a bunch more work for them. It should be a lot of fun. Thanks for taking a look.
real good stuff dude- looks 3D .is it?
only critque here would be - since there is hard light from almost all sides of this
painting i'd expect to see more shadows may be going in few directions,since you have 1 light comming from straight above the character and 1 from the right.
same for the props.
I like the composition and the lighting otherwise.
keep it going...good job
Really nice. And, I too want to know if it was 3d. It sort of reminds me of an Unreal Championship 1 level.(I wish I didn't sell that game)
beautiful work Howard...it is great to be working with u again.

dgbrain - thanks for the reply. It isn't 3d, but I did do quick mockup to paintover. Check the new attachment.
xbrianx - Cool man, thanks for checking it out. I will post some wips at some point. See the new image to see where it started.
Jason - Thank man. I can't wait to get the pipeline going. It will again be one of the highlights of my workday to see new pieces come in from MB. I saw the turnarounds on the character you sent, so nice.
Justin Oaksford - Good eye. Here is the preliminary render. Thanks for the reply!
Great work Lyon. I will have to disagree with the comment dgbrain gave on the lighting. In daylight situations alot of surfaces themselfs will reflect light back to illuminate a room (they dont have to be shiny).
I would add a hint of specular highlights on the pillars where the torches would reflect from.
Hope to see more work, please come again.
I like your painting skills, very detailed and rich.
My crit is the mish mash of cultural and architectural elements. It just doesn't feel right. It's like a Japanese Elvis impersenator. But heh, It's Startgate.
Great job, Howard. Very effective sense of space and I really like the variety of textures you've used - makes what could have easily been a cavernous room into an interesting space.
I'm assuming Stargate Worlds is a game - did you need consider the game camera's viewpoint ( 1st / 3rd person ) when dressing the environment?
cool stuff - very clean with a great sense of staging ,scale and mood .
Wacomitis - fear of an empty bank account.
