cool creatures.. keep it up, man. great stuff!
I like what you have for your creature and mechanical designs, but I think that your composition needs a bit of work. Then again, I need to work on mine as well.

Sure you're improving at a fast pace, since I last visited! This robot piece is really good. I've got some small critiques:
The robot's right hand doesn't "pop out" too much, which is kinda weird considering that it's in first term. A few white glows in the fingers would definitely help.
Also, A bit of work in the shadow (more defined, and darker in the tips of the legs) would help in giving the impression that the robot is actually touching the ground. The rising front-left leg is a bit distracting, I would have it touching the floor as well.
Anyway, good work!
Keep it up man
Cheers guys, my composition has always been an issue and is something I'm defo keen to remedy, so all crits are more than welcome :o)
Have done a few more I'm hoping you'll crit me on. The dragon pics are for a short story I'm working on, and is a nice opportunity to try a softer more child friendly style. While the vehicles are just good practice as Sci-fi is another thing I've struggled with, so really want sort the look of different materials.
So many great SB's it's all a bit daunting...
gotta agree on that XD To much fun stuff to look at aye
But ur sb is pretty awsome to man!! u have sum cool vehicle designs right here
U rendered the material very nice
Keep up this stuff I hope u get more free time ))
Man alive my eyes are burning from all the great stuff I've seen here today. Gotta raise my game or die of shame...
I'm liking what i see here and want to see more
(i used to babble a lot but it's late now and i'm tired and not wanting, but i don't want to miss your next update also )
Well, keep it up, man!
Fantastic stuff GEB, your values and colours are top notch. Excellent variety of work here too which is good to see. I especially love your painting of the dragon sitting on the lighthouse. I'm just a little sad that there isn't more! I'll be keeping my eye out for your next update.
Haven't been on here fo ages been so busy with life stuff... Boo
Everytime I have a look on here I'm overwhelmed by the talent it's so inspiring. Gunna make sure I get on here more often
Anywho here's somethying I did today please crit your hearts out!
Am finding environments really tough, so I'm gunna try tackle it head on. Did these rough sketches today to get started. Would love to hear any advice
Really cool stuff you got here. Creature designs are really nice and I really like those landscapes from your last pot, especially the middle one.
whoaaa, that picture of the dragon on the lighthouse with the lightning. T_T so cool. i can see where you're stronger with creatures than you are with backgrounds, but they still look pretty tight!
on another note, i feel like that little green car thing is a bit too all over shiny, and i know it's just on the metal parts, but the black doesn't seem to bring it down too much. maybe the green's just over shiny. maybe it'd help if you made the parts that are more in shadow than the others a bit less light stroked.
Erotopia - Yeah I think you're right, doing shiny surfaces is always tricky. I always look back at stuff and think why wasn't I bolder with it?.. Ah well if I can learn from my mistakes I don't mind making them.
The next one is a really quick study from photo ref, took about 40mins. I'm going to work on a few of these quick portrait type paintings, as well the landscapes, to try to work on my efficiency. See if I cant get the important info down quickly and still have it readable
Epic fail today...
The idea was to quickly capture the essence of this portrait. She has such a beautiful face and I fucked it up. Not her face you understand, the painting. So hang back on calling the cops...
Wow, lots of cool creatures here, and the enviroments are looking good too. Keep them coming.
Here's a quick enviro. Really not convinced so any comments welcome
Another quick enviro
Hey done a couple more enviros, I think the lighting is starting to come on a bit but my composition is still in the dark ages...
I really love this!! and also the other one
And pretymuch everithing else you posted Lots of it reminds me of bladerunner, whch is one of my favorite movies
great work, keep posting!!
Worthy adversary! High praise indeed!
Flattery will get you nowhere... But don't stop trying!
OK haven't been on here for far too long so just gunna chuck some stuff up quickly. The first one was something I did for CHOW but didn't get to finnish in time. The second is just something I'm doing in my down time. So crit away!
Quick update. Crits please!
Man, you really got something going with that last one! Would love to see it finished, maybe make it a character design? With a gradient background? I would epicly love that
Very nice anatomy and perspective too
Wow, man you have a ton of skills. Your works are really wicked. I would recommend grabbing a piece of ref for the faces though, seems to be a little weak spot there.
Ur works are awesome... cant wait for the next step wip from death to the currently ChoTW... ur colors are so intensive, but not kitschy, i really like them. keep on, man
Ok so this is some stuff I'm doing for the latest CHOW really having a ball with this and learning a lot too. What could be more fun than that!?
