The Art of.

Was just talking with some mates today about the new Assassins Creed game, we all pre-ordered the first game and had a sort of unwritten rivalry to see who could complete it first, I didn't win, but that's another story.

Anyway, I decided to take out my Assassins Creed limited edition tin box, and was flippin' through the *tiny* graphic novel, with art by David Levy, at the time he was unknown to me as I wasn't into art at the time, but now, breaking down his images, it was a lot of fun!

In the same drawer I then decided to take out my 'Art of Grand Theft Auto' book that I got with GTA: IV when I pre-ordered it, and man, I was oblivious at the time, but the art is absolutely amazing and it's not necessarily just the 2D stuff, but the 3D visualizations of the entire cities is just awe aspiring.

Really inspired at the moment and would love to start some sketches to perhaps do a small graphic novel, could be cool, I thinks.

Until next time guys, take-care, and peace :)

Lost City

Finally finished this mofo, I'm happy with my outcome in terms of the workflow, if I made a mistake I fixed it, was a really fun project, and took a pretty long time, haha!

Takecare guys!

Oh my.

No excuse this time guys, except for the usual laziness of course, but I seriously just forgot to update this bugger, I've been keeping my sketchbooks updated, though, somewhat xD

So check back there for anything you may have missed.

But in short, I've started matte painting, i've loved the stuff for years and have finally sat down and decided to do my own one, this is my latest one, wip/progress shots and base plate can be found at both sketchbooks :)

At the moment, water needs fixing, sky replacement needs to be done, and I'm still not happy with those buildings, *sigh*.  Around 3 days work so far, on and off, really want to get this polished to a high standard!

Not quite sure.

Hey guys, once again, sorry for being so lazy.. I just have been so strict on what I upload, quality wise anyway.

Heres a quick prac I did in photoshop because atm I am really considering going back to photoshop for painting, it is so far more superior to painter in so many ways, photoshop has its flaws, but not gaping flaws like painter.

Here ya go, was fun, found it really easy to add in blue hues for lighting and to blend out, something I was having difficulties with in painter.. :)

Another alchemy image, I really like the laid back way the program makes me work, the randomness of all the shapes really lets you envision things, its amazing :)

Now I needa find a way to take these further..

Thanks for viewing, have a nice day!!

Heres my random creation I dubbed 'Mechusa' a reinvention of Medusa.

I like it, just happy I finally got some productive out of Alchemy :)

Great open-source software by the way.

I may or may not continue this piece in Painter, stay tuned!

Samurai WIP

my samurai painting thus far, about 2-3 hours so far i think, ultimately decided to use artrage, so yeah, i'm off to bed, but will return to it tomorrow and it should be done by then, hopefully I can save those eyes before they end up looking any worse..

i'm happy with the skin tones they may need softening or perhaps some yellow or pink glazes, but ill get to that when I need too :)
