I like Salaryman's graphic style and fancy way of coloring images and I wanted to give it a try. I think it's really helpful for concentrating on mood and composition rather than on details and realism.
and a study from reference
Some work I did for the Pray for Dark project... ( I highly suggest to check and support Pray for Dark on Kickstarter !!). These are all to various degrees paintovers on 3d models so I had little choices about poses and composition...

Very nice work!
this one especially very appealing:
great use of color and atmosphere.
Some great work in here. I enjoy the sketches the most actually. The latest image though has some pretty sweet perspective.
Environments seems definitely to be your strongest field. Characters needs more work but it's going in the right direction. Can't come up with much advice from my part at the moment to make this post useful. I'll follow this thread for sure and see if I can come up with something.
Impressive updates rev! I like the way you did the structures in this one http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1348314721 They just look immaculate, very well done.
Fantastic environment designs. The abstract ones especially look quite unique.
really awesome work in it! I hope to get at this level one day
Cool character. The sign bugs me though. It looks like it's attached close to the arms which would hinder movement. I'd get rid of it for practical reasons but you could make it more like a samurai banner with just one pole.
The new version is a lot better by the way. Good that you gave his calves more protection.
Hey Revenebo, brilliant work you have here. I love the line quality in post 377, and the captain morgan character is so well thought out and executed! I also saw that you are coming to the London symposium, I look forward to meeting you there!
I keep checking your thread once in a while but usually I prefer not to write if I don't have something constructive to say. This time though I have one or two suggestions.
I also lately I tend to sketch traditionally more as it's hard to force myself to look at computer screen again after coming back from work. It's also the reason I don't look for additional freelance jobs lately.
You got some really nice work on the last page. The grayscale landscape reminds me a lot of the Caspar David Friedrich paintings (Especially the tree branches and ruins). There's good feeling of scale though the foreground and middleground has some elements like trees which look very similar in size which doesn't enhance the depth as it could. Also maybe removing some detail from far background and leaving it almost as silhouette would help.
The blue dance club scene is a a bit like that club we've been to in Bucharest . I like the idea of mixing mundane with unusual. There's lots of place for imagination and unexplored territories in this type of art.
The costume design is cool. The there's lots of really nicde detail and overlapping parts of the armour work well for conveying depth. You should check out "Salute of the Jugger" (aka. Blood of Heroes) movie from 1989 if you haven't seen it before. It's a lot like this image - warriors on the postapocalyptic wasteland.

Vulgar`, AimBiZ, ceddo, Farvus thank you folks!!!
Farvus thank you man!! About the landscape, I actually used paintings by Friedrich as reference!! It has some scale and details distribution issues as you pointed out but for some reason I got tired of it and I don't think I'll put more work in it soon.
About the dance club, I liked the idea of making something weird and out of context appear normal... That dance club in Bucharest was cool man!!
I know "Salute of the Juggers" and I love it!!!!
Hey Revenebo! Keep up the excellent work! I'm glad I stopped by after so long. loving what I see! Keep it up
Talent and Creativity are yours to use and keep
