the creature in the back looks like he has no right hand...or it's grabbing it's own neck? I probably just can't see the detail becuase its a small version. but the wing coming out the right side of the head kinda bothers me. i like symetry, specially with wings/ears. but the color and atmosphere are very strong. thanks fer posting it
Thanks for the post clodhopper, the creature isnt grabbing its own neck actually. i supoose in the reproduction of the painting it didnt translate as well.
there was a bit of a value change that showed the hand better.the creatures hand is actually open with it's thumb actually over the area of the necklace, in the redo i will make sure to naot such considerations forsake reproduction.
i saw some of your 3d posts that were most imperessive . keep em coming !
I'm sure the alternity.net users would be interested in any shreds of information about what wizards currently has planned for Alternity - as the product was dropped quite some time ago.
Alternity players all feel the Alternity ruleset is by far the best Scfi-Fi and all-purpose RPG system to date, balanced and flexible. (nearly 1000 registered users http://www.alternity.net/user_register.php3 - quite a few double ups though :p)
I would hate to hear that it will become a D20 product though, so if it is don't tell me
terrox- i dont think wizars has any plans to relauch alternity , if they do fully i dont knwo about it , if u liekd that u may want to check out ,golm the universal darkness, which is another property i did art for as well . its been int he making for sometime and is due for release any day now ill post perlim and comps for some of the jobs done for this line , for which i have many .
Wow, that's a nice piece. The right forearm of the winged beast keeps the composition flowing, but the hand is then hard to see. Always there are compromises with composition. Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff.
thanks hudnut , i most certainly welcome comments of all kinds related to anything i do . i really consider what is said and often people have really valid points about things i certialy dont see , thanks for the kind words .
Thanks man, I much appreciate the compliment. Coming from you, I appreciate it even more. Thanks.
I noticed another thing about your piece on this thread that you might find interesting. It appears as if the rightmost hand on the bottom of the guy's rifle COULD be the hand of the girl on the right. Of course, I know it's not, but the angle on the bottom of the front of the gun is in just the right place to be the girl's forearm. I'm sure at full rez, it's more clear whose hand is whose, but I thought I'd point it out. An interesting tangency of forms. But your painting still rocks.
Hudnut this piece looks traditional to me. I don't know much about wizards. Are they strictly fantasy? I guess I'll put together some dragon and elf samples or something. Heard they're not to receptive to new talent though. Only one way to find out. What was this originally used for? Have you considered going digital if you haven't already? Lockwood's been doing some amazing stuff. I think he's using painter. I've been having a ball with photoshop. Don't think it really matters which program you use.
using photoshop before learning painter will cause cerebral damage - I would suggest all artists ignore photoshop until they have learnt how to use Painter brushes and Painter layers (after using Photoshop for many years before bothering to actually learn painter, was quite a task to rewire the brain for Painter use - I can swap from 3D Studio Max to Lightwave 3D to InfiniD fine, but painter and photoshop seem quite opposing in their workflow..)
i like to see and you never have to do this. Is to let some areas go so that there not all of equal value.
like her back leg or some other places if it 100 percent sharp all over your eye has no rest and your not leading me into what you really want me to look at.
just a suggestion for some other works at some other time maybe.
