    Woah! What to say apart from: Awesome? Your paintings really are lively and strong in contrast and storytelling, I really dig this stuff man, you certainly deserve the rating you've got. I am surprised by the great quality in here!

    In suggestions maybe there'd be nice to see more dirt-kind of colours , cause, even if your stuff is great, there's not much brownish-dirty kinda colours, and I think it'd be great to see some. Anyways, great work man!

    hello everyone, thank you all for the wonderful comments. it feels nice to come back to some nice replies.

    as promised, i'm back with an update. and i'll try to write some things about what went on with these images.

    I had to work on 2 images, a sci-fi environment and a character. I really can't disclose anything about the project or client so i would really appreciate it if you didn't ask too much. I will try letting you in on the process a little.

    I'll start with the environment. At first i did a round of sketches, trying to get it a big more clear in my mind. Usually i start with drafts like these, then i discuss with the client and we narrow them down and shift them to fit the briefing. Here are the initial drafts:

    _

    _

    _


    At this point my power plant was still too anchored in the present day, it needed to become more sci-fi and more energetic. It was also pretty static and it definitely needed a bit more work. I took the feedback and incorporated it into this next step:


    Now things were starting to look a bit better so i took the last round of feedback and started working on the final. Here it is:


    On the side, i was working on the character. It had to fit a warrior spirit with a nomadic side so just as for the environment, i started with some rough drafts to try and get my ideas fleshed out:

    _

    _


    At this point, things were kind of ok, some drafts were better than others, some of the guys looked too light, others looked too heavy. You can see a version having a red circle, we decided that was to be the main option we would work with. After a round of feedback i narrowed it down to these guys:

    _

    _


    After a new round of feedback we decided the first guy still looked the most solid while the other two had some concept flaws that were difficult to work around. They were just not expressing the proper image and weren't well aligned with the briefing so we narrowed it down to the first guy and i started working on the final. Here it is:


    It feels good seeing them done, there are of course many things that could have been done better, especially for the environment but i feel i've learned immensely by doing these and i hope all i've assimilated will turn into better future results.

    I'm thankful i had the opportunity to do this and i'm thankful to the people who supported me along the way, either with a crit bash, a warm coffee or just a nice word.

    Thank you.

    "Don't let them say you ain't beautiful." I'd agree with that. I'm really digging the contrast between the ultra warm lights and super cold shadows in that environment. The gal with the fiery pillar in her hands is really neat too.

    Something that caught my eye but took me a bit to place was the depth of the environments. I feel like the world is really close with not much in the distance with the recent pics, though the environments on page 37 definitely have more depth. It might just be me, and I can't really describe why I feel that way.

    Great sketchbook! I really hope to reach this level someday.

    So you can draw and paint, and you're just getting better and better... So? Am I supposed to be impressed? Lots of people can do that... Just... Don't stop okay?
