I really enjoy the last one, cool colors and textures. None of which works without the awesome composition you pulled off.
Lovely work M@. What exactly are you doing at Blizzard? Sorry if this question has been asked before. Are you mainly concepting environments or other pre production material as well? I'm assuming your a concept artist there

well i totaly love you envoirment and landscape work but you need some serious work on the live things the knight (king) is awemost ok but the leg seems to be little short the horse neck is short too,the eye not on the right place and other stuff ....dont get me wrong i love all you other stuff
sorry for the shiti English
Amazing sir. Great rendering and sense of perspective. Love the brushstrokes and blending.
ecsdesign : thanks for dropping by! glad you like.
Villa : thx
Stark : just crit the hell out of me, even if its a speedie, it's supposed to work. What do you mean by upper left? the back ground or the pillar? and I dont think its a much rendered piece actually, if you look closely a lot of it are fat random strokes..
Johndowson : thanks!
dsg : thank you.
skrubbles : thx!
Main Loop : hehe , yeah!
Nivec : haha, okay, I should.

Koto Stomp : thanks!
Skeiff : thanks, glad you like!
Beelow : hehe, yeah actually I did
Sirio_Brozzi : thank you!
Wasker : yeah I actually upped the whole saturationof the piece in the end... maybe I shouldnt have...
bumskee : thanks!
kischi : heh, unfortunately a good game = good gameplay, and concepts don't really affect that... but blizzard always delivers anyway
and no, it wasnt supposed to be chun li.
Fishspawn : thanks!
Alex Alexandrov : thank you. I just observe a lot and paint as much as I can (sometimes) . I never did a lot of studies, though I should.
Anthriel : thanks!
Joshk : thank you.
Blue Severin : thanks.
CHARLES CARVALHO : thank you! glad you like the brushes.
Art Addict : Thanks. I didnt start yet at Blizzard ( I start monday) but I guess I will do all kind of concept/viz dev stuff on cinematics
Nivec : thanks!
Alex Alexandrov : yeah I agree, I definitely gotta work more on characters and stuff. But since Im comfortable in landscapes, I tend to do too much of them :/ and yeah foreshortening without refs is a PAIN , I think all the stuff you mentionned are linked to the foreshortening. But if I do a standard view then people will tell its too static :/ ahh damn characters are a pain. Don't hesitate to crit more in depth if you have a little time
Stark : thanks!
Man , I love you're style of painting (specially you're hard lighting) and idea's.
I hope that you're gonna have an influence in the next Blizzard game.
Wow, amazing work!! VERY inspiring speedpaints and environments
Hm haha.. Your book is the only thread on CA i visit frequently. Cause its getting better everytime and you always inspire me
Lst image shows a lot of movements, the horse is very well made, I want to think its done looking at reference, even tho' as I think I know u a little, its probably done from your head ?
Great piece , I also like the other one , the environment!
Great stuff as usually.. Its kinda hard to find words when having a look at your work.. Oh well, keep sharing plz !
dude great updates!!!!
pld: NEED CRITIQUE! But BEWARE your Eyes might BLEED OUT of YOUR eye SOCKETS <---cause I really suck and haven't done shit pld:
My Sketch Book!
Since you gave me the ok, I'll leave something really slight for you. Based on the light on the hoofs, thighs, and hind quarters of the horse, the rider's shin guards should have a touch more lighting on them. Right now, you can make out that they are separate, but it would probably be better to make the distinction a bit more clearer. Also, from the sword and the gleaming armor, shouldn't there be a bit more reflected/refracted light on the horse and other parts of the armor?
I have to say you are a uber god when it comes to eviro!!! My fav is #172, that castle is godlike!!!!
I have to agree, props on your enviroments, they are well done, they tell part of the story solidly.
crazy stuff man, keep it up
oh man. like WOW!
Really enjoyed looking at your stuff, cannot wait for more!!
very beautiful stuff ........its kinda romanticized,,,,very cool
Please visit my sketchbook ….I love the feed back
The greatest achievement is selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
Man I really love your stuff. It's well composed and designed, and everything look so concrete somehow. Wow.
