Amazing stuff. I would love to see some pencil work
joshualyness: Yes, I've got a short attention span.. Sorry
Incinerated: I like Android's stuff a lot but I don't think you can really compare it. The way I'm thinking about brush usage and creating weird textures is definitely inspired by him though
PeteJ: Boy, it's been ages since I held a pencil. I might do some proper sketches soon
With the way your environments have been lately. I can't wait to see you combine the two (character and environment).
Your style remains constant across the board.
From what it looks like you use a huge assortment of custom brushes.
Interesting pieces lately. I can't wait to see more.
Hey Mat thx! Yes I do have tons of custom brushes. They're usually my 'streamline that workflow' answer to a visual problem. I just simply refuse to paint truckloads of detail by hand (call me lazy, or not Asian enough :p) so I try to recreate the suggestion by making a brush for it and then accentuate a couple of those details with 'normal' labor. Which in the end can take up just as much time actually, but the process is way more fun
Brush-up of a CHOW from a couple of weeks ago.
Xelar: No I don't mind at all, the thing is that you'd be better of with my tool-presets I guess. My brush-library is too cluttered with a lot of stuff which I hardly use (the bulk of M@, Goro, Goodbrush etc.) but my brush tool-presets are a bit more easy to grasp I hope. Still a lot I'm afraid :p And CS5 only.
Wow. Your stuff is amazing! I love it. Looks a bit like the direction I'll go to more, because my stuff is too unsharp and undefined but I also like to play with colours and shapes as your stuff looks like. Had great fun looking through this one here. Keep it up!
Charmer: Use a lot of lasso-tooling lately to get those crisp edges, that might help
Mr. Ebony: All the painting is done in photoshop, and I use some alchemy and illustrator every now and then for brush or pattern creation.
Yeah, much better! I think you should actually just stick to gestural for a wee bit. Your rendering skill is great, now get dynamic posing down and you'll be ridiculous!
