Very impressive work! I can't give any crit because I don't have much experience. Even if I was experienced, these pieces are still amazing.
concept art rules!

Damn it, these are so freakin' amazing! The second one is so detailed.. Are you sure that isn't a photograph? Especially the hills and trees.
I love your enviros a lot, specially the Dune inspired ones. I admire the series a lot. I think they evolve the Dune feeling very well... although the arrakis one is very strange! Kick ass none the less.
I'm guessing the bath is actually indoors, and phased array optic paneling or some similar advanced display technology is being used to create the look of an outdoor environment. I like the placement of the mirror, which hints that this could be an illusion.
Hey, I absolutely love these. I'm a sucker for good uses of photographic elements.
Something bothers me about the front piece of the building in your second picture. Maybe I'm just stupid but it seems to be tipped forward a tick (perspectivewise).
All the cool kids ignore my ketchook.
nice lisa, good to know you are doing well, I really like the 2nd and 3rd one, atmosphere, lighting and comp works really well! are u still at the bay area?
Thanks for the encouraging comments!!! It took a lot of effort to create these, and I'm glad you enjoy looking at them.
Yes, the bath is indoors, but it is set in a natural setting. The idea was being in the midst of nature with all the contemporary comforts. I was reading about Stanley Kubrick's films, where he uses doubles to hint at multiple meanings and duality of things: past/present, reality/illusion, self/others, interior/exterior. Of course, it's delightful to contemplate on such concepts in a tranquil bath.
Hey Lisa~ (this is vicky)
Great stuff you've got! glad to hear that you're doing so well after school

i´m a huge dune fan, so thanks for the fan service.
great paintings and i think you did something refreshing to the desert planet.
please make some more!
I love this stuff...really good lighting, brush strokes, moods, etc. Great looking and definitely awesome. Kudos
excellent concepts. all them have such a nice mood to them, and I love the color pallette as well. The only critique would be on the night cityscape which seems a bit unfinished compared to the others... maybe you were goin for that? anyway great environment illustrations!
very nice execution of the concepts. the concepts them self could use a bit more designing.
the rock on the first pic looks like it will collapse any second.
The downsides of the clouds on the second image on the right side follow the horizon line and the trees in the lower right comer are distorted in the right direction pretty much.
The background on the 3th image is rather colorful compared with the room that is almost monochrome and the toilet you placed in the center catches my attention a bit to much. The shoes on the ground cast a shadow in a different direction.
the last image has a strong mood and nice colours. the smoke coming from the pipe could have a more sophisticated look. Looking at how you fogged the background i wonder why some elements remain black and this bridge connection stops casting the reflection halfway.
Thank you for your critiques! For Arrakis, since it's a dangerous and dry place, the rock looking as if it'd collapse any second was the idea - the impending doom, but it's hard to tell when.
The other pieces may use some minor adjustments, and your critiques have given me fresh ideas!
Beautiful. I like the shapes in the 1st but all are excellent.
What I can't understand is why the painting style looks so different between all those images, almost like it was done completely differently. I also see a lot of photos pasted in (like the castle scene http://www.fotosearch.com/comp/AGE/A...17-212992.jpg), some 3D (the last pic) and some weird stuff like the smoke Randis talked about or the mirror in the bathroom scene. Totally bewildering. It's almost like those were created by pasting together other images.
Hi Black Fish,
Thank you for your inquiries about my work. They are all 2D images and include a combination of photo montage and painting. I wanted to create distinctively different moods, and some paintings are more tightly rendered than others. That may have been confusing as different styles. Your comment is appreciated.
Love the mountaintop monastery... reminds me of Crouching Tiger. And that rock formation one makes me nervous... just looks like that thing is going to collapse. Great renders. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, lovely. I just love the castle one.
really nice environments! I want more haha!
Life is a long lesson in humility.
Yep, I'm liking. Very nice indeed.
