Sensational body of work, almost nightmarish in a calm way.
W O W Please show us more. I would love to see more of your pencil sketches as well.

Wow your work is impressive. I don't have any technical knowledge of how you go about creating such things but they are visually stunning. Is this in the realm of graphic design? You seem to have a real architectural focus as well. Also, is some of it CAD modeled such as the structures or do you use software like Sketchup for the buildings?
Your work is very clean looking! REal nice work and I look forward to seeing more! Thanks for the feedback and you are right on. I think darkening those trees is splendid idea! Thanks for your input and I must add that I would love to see some futuristic city scapes with epic skies.
Hi JI7, I use 3dStudio Max for buildings. I a noob but I strongly recommend it its an awesome thing
Hey Aaron, thanks man, glad I could help!
Pavel, I left you a long rambling crit in the crit forum, hope its not total nonsense, and thanks!!
Patrick, JR I spoke to you guys priovately but thankyou both v much

Ok I read your thread on the Crit forums and wanted to see what you had been talking about. I read through this entire thread and am I little confused.
It looks like you are not always posting your own personal works? But you are posting other people's designs and taking credit for them? Which pieces are YOURS? Some of this stuff looks like your taking photos and just slightly altering them? I think most people assume when you post something, everything in the picture was done by you, unless otherwise noted? I mean are you doing this stuff from SCRATCH? If not I wish you would specify exactly what you did.
I don't know... something is just not adding up to me.

"It looks like you are not always posting your own personal works? But you are posting other people's designs and taking credit for them? Which pieces are YOURS?"
Chill out youre so agressive. How can I "claim credit" for something I dont even use my real name. Calm down and stop SHOUTING please.
I just put up work to see what people think and be a part of CAO. Im not trying to gain in any way from other people's work.
When I started this thread I was working at my friend John Bowens studio, J&B. I posted a collection of mine and Johns work thinking people might like to see it. He did the first 8 and the last 2 or 3 images in Post 1 and the first 3 in Post 57.
My friend Jay Sayed currently works at J&B. He asked me to do an interior for his Rolls Royce concept. I posted his exteriors with my interiors so they all made sense.
With one exception I can think of everything else I did from scratch.
I also posted some character sketches my friend Jamal Mustafa had sent me for soemthing we were working on at the time. One of these turned out to be painted over the cover of a fashion book. I didnt realise at the time I posted, but left it in the thread so the Omen Spirit's comment pointing out it was lifted made sense. That was embarassing but I dont think I did anything wrong apart from putting sketch work in the Finished forum...
"Some of this stuff looks like your taking photos and just slightly altering them?"
I think most people assume when you post something, everything in the picture was done by you, unless otherwise noted?"
I use photoreference as much as anyone. I have cut out people from photos to use in images sometimes if the image is a sketch, or used textures off the internet or the ones that came free with my software..
I looked at your thread.
I bet you didnt take the original photo of Brandy youre copying from and subsequently signing your name on.
"If not I wish you would specify exactly what you did."
Id much rather talk about what you would do differently in the images, or ideas youve had that might improve future ones, things like that. Or have people voluntarily chop images around and make them awesome, I love that. I know how much I have to learn and am very grateful to the people whove commented on the thread. A lot of the guys here, Coro, Jason, Patrick, Dallas, I really look up to as artists and they actively participate here which is exciting. Thats the reason I wanted to get invovled in this big community of artists, not to argue.
Mouse paintings. After seeing all the awesome TAD work Ive ordered my first Wacom. i say ordered, asked for off my mum for xmas... i cant wait for it to arrive. Mouse is ok but its a bit like drawing with your wrong hand, quite tricky!

Impressive ID. Keep it going!
I'm very glad you've posted these here. It's awesome work and incredibly inspirational. I'm curious how you managed to achieve such atmosphere with those mouse paintings. That first one especially is exceptional.

Ive just spent a happy time slowly scrolling down your blog and zooming in on things. Theyre like Cezannes! so fine. Id love one day to do something like those.
The trick to mouse paintings in the few Ive tried? (and the reason I am in awe of painters who use real materials): Ctrl-Z undo. And layers. Digital spoils you I think. And photo reference. Without that Im stuck. I wouldnt recommend mouse though its a pain hehe.
My first ever wacom is on order.
kareem ilya inspired

Wow your SB is awesome!
First of all, let me say that you are a great artist, love your sketches, paintings, everything. Next, i want to ask for your permit to model your black taxi on 3d. I model cars (for fun) and yours will be a good practice for me. Of course you will be fully credited.
Thanks in advance, keep up the good work
wow and yes, it would nice to see some syd-mead-like sci-fi scenes.
thanks for checking my sb! weird designs man, i wonder at a lot of images whats the story behind it. It would be interesting if you would add some comments at some of your image so we understand more about how to understand your image.
another question, is it ok for some pieces to show it? i mean, isn't it under NDA?
keep up the good work!

I hadnt check this for a while so sorry for not replying!
Also sorry this is effectively the double of the SB now; I was going to take all the sketchier stuff out but it sort of destroys the meaning of a lot of the comments, so from now on this is just going to be for polished bits, SB for junk.
shouldve just done all this properly in the first place mumble mumble
GEB Thanks bud!
CG18: Id be flattered and honoured! Although I apologise in advance that the surfaces dont make much sense and might be a total dick to model...
Schowalye: Thanks! I remember having my head blown off when I first bought Oblagon off Amazon when I was about 16, and his images stil hurt my head today; the perfect perspective, total control of colour, the amazing design ideas, the great anatomy and faces, amazing reflections.. and all in guache. The excellence is intimidating. But also inspiring!
JellevdVegt: No problem, its a really good SB, I am most envious!
I can certainly explain what I was thinking with any of the pics, if you want to pick any and I can explain the rationale? I say explain, I mean make up bullshit stories...
Yeah theres loads of stuff under NDA, but youre not missing a massive amount really, mostly sheets and sheets of designs for game assets and things, yawn...
AllthatJazz: hahahawith all the little details are we ocd or what!?
Colin: thankyou very much sir
Bhanu, right back at you homes. I love the rust red bodies, Id expect to see them on the wall in the Saatchi and go fuck, thats cool in my head. Big love
That new car design is badass, and also the Solaris stands out.
I love watches, but unfortunately you haven't posted any in a while. Got a few new ones by any chance?
OH. really awesome pictures!
your work is amazing.....
