These are great and those knight paintings are probably my favorites....have you done any commercial work?
aan - Yes I've been working freelance the past two years to get through Uni.
It's fuckin hard to post when i have no words left.
I love your stuff buddy... is just great. I would love to see somehting more then a speed paint... but you can keep at these too - it's lovely.
Keep em commin'
Fellah. - Cheers bud
Oblio - Thanks man! Here's a painting I spent a bit longer on
Is that Darth Vader in the cockpit of the beemer? Dope concept, dude...

your style is the sickest
your brush strokes and textures are relaxing to stare at
Damn! you got some super sweet stuff here, i really like how you can see the brush strokes in the robo/knight designs, and the colors all fit together prefectly, what can I say, love all the stuff you got here, the last one is really nice, how much time did you put into that?
deez - Thanks man - the way I work is very relaxing actually, whenever I'm stressed with uni or work I just open up Painter and do a speedpaint.
Gridur - Cheers dude - that one took about 10hours I think - most of that was drawing paths in PS.
Here's another quick head sketch

Hey man still lovin your stuff, thanks for the reply in my book On an average how long does it take you to do what you do?
Insane14 - No prob dude - most of the stuff in here is done in about an hour - the faces take about 30 min
Farvus - Cheers!!
A sketch of a painting Ian McCaig did of Padme. I know its lame redoing art but this was fun

Hehe just came in to return the favor m8 - im so tired - drawing all night and all day like a madman. 3 hours sleep...
And what do i see in here?
Omg, dude that girls face is truly beautiful! But i prefer your original stuff
And im not so sure it lame if you do it in such a nice way, its paying respect to art and artist you like. And great practice.
ok so after looking at a few McCaig sketches I did this without any ref - the mouth took so long to get right ...so much still to learn *sigh*
Gonna do a full render of this in PS later (like the BMW one)- maybe a tut if anyone's interested. The tail folds down as a landing strut.
Wow...... this stuff is tuff. You've got a kick ass sketch book ... I was just wondering what pencils you used for those Padme sketches ... there great... and I'm a pen so I'm trying to get into pencils.... also were do you find McCaig pics they're hard to find.... Hes got a site going up but its not up yet just a front page saying coming soon.
Well anyway off to work on my pencil skillz .... great sketch book, once again.

Ink_Monkey - I think that pencil was a HB, its a tech pencil, nothing special.
I have the two StarWars Art Books and they have loads of McCaig sketches and paintings. These books are a must buy for any artist.

I'll keep a lookout here mate, post more!
Hey AndrewLey! I loved seeing your sketches on cgtalk (and again here too!). Man those are some awesome knight concepts - that 3d rendering is gorgeous! Im definatley for any tuts you feel like doing

Hey there, really nice faces i must say, even if it's redo art hehe, i really like the shading, only by doing nice shading on a peice makes it to art so it's suppurb, I would definatly want a tutorial on doing them wicked nice mech designs in ps, so i would'nt cry tears of blood if you did one
