I have to say some of the images make me return and look again and again at them.
Especially this Satan-like horse from entangled wire, touch of death... by Tinfoil. that's very impressive and charismatic image. I look and look at it..this image has no barriers in my brains. And overall his images have a strange, surreal taste, looking at them like traveling in some far, far away worlds, so enchanting. Like those mountains with lamb horns or wheels frozen in the air. Very fresh, deep, original manner to see. I like his manner to tell the story... calm and dreamy, kind of philosophical story about other world.
I like the lyrical softness in flaptraps's images, kind of moss-like sensation form his colors and textures and I especially like the character with naked torso in green checkered pants... he looks so alive, like he just came out from trees density suddenly, so wild. Sense of colors, harmony, subtlety and richness are outstanding in his images IMO.
Prostrate sunrise images look delightful despite the context... I don't know... they look like a celebration of life, like some festival, which was eagerly awaited by everyone. he just cheer me up with the energy and hidden joy in every image. A lot of taste and it is great to see so many tones of brown or orange in one image. Very rich and never ending force of life in your art. I like the girl with bear and I especially like the character with fire in his face... Japanese festival triumphantly moving through the city, really.
Cicinmo... I enjoyed all your images, especially this one and gruesome rocks in the air...
Robot caught in the swirls and the iron horse with a great presence and personality ... my favorite.
M.C.Barrett, you have a very personal touch to all your image, be it enviros or creatures... they have souls and very attentive eyes, curious face expressions and very often very funny ones... make me look with a bigger attention , expecting soemthing form them.

I am Shiva the god of death...
Omg. This is orgasm for my eyes.
You guys are my heros! These are amazing. Im an avid GW player.. (haha its probably why my art is not going anywhere lately!) and I wish I could see all of this in the game. The armor and everything are very well done. I hope that some of the extra armor ideas are added later on.
Great job, I cant wait to see more.
ok hereīs a long boring blah blah blah post
in a few words it says: you guys rule !!
just want to show my appreciation for this team
take my hat off
Dougbot: Man, you did a bunch of stuff!!
from your first post i really like the creature
with the red energy glow, there is a nice variety
of texture and color on the wings, and i specially dig the
tiny white lnes on the floor, and for post #29 i like em a lot
the one before fire elemental is awesome, i wonder how big is it?
and fire elemental, blue orb totem and camouflage grass creature
are super, the small diagrams really reinforce the actions of these
creatures, also we can tell you imagined and made the "concept"
for actual gameplay and animation, very nice, all your work
shows good mass i like it very nice variety :-)
Xia: !!!!!!!! you posted !! thatīs awesome dude, it has been
a while since i saw your work, dude kick ass!! love all the
armour designs i like the one with the bird motiff
Flaptraps: first one is very nice all those hard edges
and the tiny bush detail on the bottom left describe the scale so
greatly, love your brushwork, lotīs of variety keeps me going
around the illustration discovering more elements, figures
are badass!! nice style
Tinfoil: that mountain in the port, the one in the
shape of the horned beast is EPIC the hues on the rock
are my favorite part specially on the bottom left, and the
horns are rendered beautifully, most of the work has
great broad brushwork and speed to it, but looking at it closer
depicts a much more delicate care for detail and form, nail the overall
then work for polishing it, great work !!
Ragnar X: hey dude, you got some good stuff on your website, and the
olmec head is awesome nice variety of details is cool to see your
environment work and character work together :-)
Prostate sunrise: not fair man, not fair, what can we say after
looking at those, everything is so "in your face " loose in some
parts and BAM amazing care for detail and good detail, well organized
and never being repetitive thats whatīs great about your work,
it all has this organic feel and personality you tilt the heads of
the character and move their arms to show personality, color,
rendering it is very impressive and overwhelming
Genital eclipse: Nice environments and variety of angles the 4 bridges one is my fav,
has some good contrast in the point of interest and washes that gove
a good atmosphere, the vegetation under the pilar is very cool
Cicinimo: First time Iīve seen your work and WOW i got crazy about it
it is impressive, dude that spine mountain bay where the spikes are getting
direct sunlight and have that reflective light under, you really nailed
that one having less render less contrast bigger brushstrokes on the ones
near the front and all that work and scale on the ones in the sunlight
what an awesome illo, and the one with the viking getting the bird
on his arm, that one is gold !!! pure gold!! can see the bird flapping,
and the materials are all so well depicted i specially like the fur, nice flow
and no repetition, you took your time with this one and it is awesome, all
your work is really good . . . you are a good artist man
Stokes: dude thatīs a lot of good variety! looks great i like the last 3 the most
they have some nice sense of scale and the overview looks great very inspirational
I bet is cool to imagine all those characters moving around those huge places,
you got some nice color palettes, the last one i like how you washed the mountains bu still
retains some nice color to them and they contrast very well with that warm top
part of the building.
Jason Juan: I remember looking at this on your website, that is so cool, man i love the
level of tighness on the finished looking ones you just went there and did some great
details nice materials and great 3d sense of form.
Merekat: nice ladies :-D !! those designs are very nice, i like the ones with the
japanese armour motiff, they sure look cool, very nice headpieces, did a great job
maintaining the style of the groups and also making them different enough.
BlindMan: dude that Pirahna beast is nasty, thatīs some cool stuff, i like the
ruins environment how the vegetation wraps around the statue, looks very nice, you got
some good renderings here , all elements of the concepts are very clear.
M.C. Barrett: well well well, the one weīve been waiting for to post :-)
man you totally delivered !! for me you are one of the best creature desingers
out there, it shows how much care and thought you put into your concepts, iīm just guessing
some of use design doing silhouettes but you i can see you combine stuff in nature
and make it look like it could actually live and breathe (not the undead ones) your work
reminds me of Wayne Barlow cause all things i just said, even the material of the fur, shell
and pattern design, it is so cool, nothing is left without proper care, dude you bested yourself again
and your rendering skills are mad!! I think of all this thread your work is the one that
brings more "new" things to the table nothing but truly admiration for your artwork dude.
Now iīm going to sleep
I have nothing to say.... It's too much to swallow....*passes out*...
It's nice to see I'm not the only one posting here who plays the game
I just hope to someday be joining you guys in some way.
I would love to say I want to see more, but I doubt I can handle it
Amazing work guys!
"Master storytellers never explain. They do the hard, painfully creative thing-- they dramatize"
Happy, happy, joy, joy!
Really great work. One of the rare posts where use of the word 'awesome' is truly justified.
I've nothing but praise for Cicinimo. Your paintings made my day,
