    Mon's sketches - Painting demo - Updated! Oct11

    Hello everyone

    Here are a couple of things I've done when I'm not working on "serious" stuff (concept work for video games). These latest sketches pretty much revolve around me pressing every conceivable button in either Photoshop or Painter, always looking for that "magic" button. As it turns out, there are several of those (or rather, you need to find the appropriate combination of buttons). They can make shit shine.

    If you have any questions regarding any of these feel free to ask. Hope you'll enjoy them, and I'll try to maintain this thread to the best of my ability

    EDIT: Oh, and that linesketch is not mine, it's the work of the awesome Joakim Hellstedt. He kicks ass, and his drawings rock. He let me put some color on to that linedrawing, so I thought I'd include that here.

    That is just bloody wicked!

    Is there any 3d as a base in there? some of them looks straight off a render and comped on top. If not this is some serious amazing 2d work man. and If so, its very good too.

    cheers man

    Damn Mattias, I'm a total fan of your work!!! I'm really enjoying these experiments, and I've found the articles on your website really inspirational and mind openers.
    Mandragora is my favorite, and the critter above that one is really disturbing-cute.
    Please post more!!

    Very nice textures and realistic quality to these. Wondering what games you have worked on, because your style seems familiar but I just cant think from where tho. Keep posting.

    I love the atmospheric lighting and texture use you've got in these. Really helps to bring the characters to life. Great stuff, post more!
