hello ,my name is David Demaret aka "Moonchild"
I'm a senior videogame artist ,but I'm now focusing on conceptart and illustrations.
a card art for a cthulhu game
the library of perganum:
Beauty and the Beast
-an unknown alien intruder ...a job for the interceptors squadron
-this one is more" HARD SCI-FI"
just like some good friend suggested me to paint nico
the emperor is arriving on the golden planet...fear!!
you better hurry man or else you will end in the mines of zandiker 9!
before you ask,the surface of this planet is composed of giant minerals called pyrite ,that looks like gold...
THE BLACK ARROW
you can view here the BLACK ARROW spaceship accosting the HYBRIS space station for refuel and resupply.
those kind of spaceships are so radioactive because of the extreme conditions and high energetic environments they explore, that they need special docks ...
A warrior's choice
on the battlefield ,you never know what will happen,except a lot blood spilling,killings and suffering...sometimes you face the unexpected and face destiny.this warrior is in front of a choice,what will he do next?
it's up to you to decide
NEW: sailing to Achaeron
dark mood paintling.
here are my latest:
black moon ceremony
(it's a retake)added the bottom part...
Above and Beyond:
a painting for an online contest about last days on earth...quick stuff
I Feel you've got a really good sence of mystery and evocation of something deep and profound here. my only crit is the composition .....you could add standing stones that go beyond the limits of the composition that frame he center of interest better.............. In saying that I love your work on this.................
Stahlrollin:thanks for understanding the message here,mystery,dark poetic lanscapes ,more like painting a vision than a concept really...
here are my first images as an illustrator;
the purpose was to share my visions and open to a new worlds...hope i've succeeded...
"This is a place in between worlds...
...a place for the burning souls...
...a place where THE GATE is waiting...
...waiting and calling...
soon , a new world will host them...
a dark or light one...only the gate knows..."
the second is :
AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS:
inspired by HP LOVECRAFT.

I like the second one the best. It reminds me of a scene from The Day After Tomorrow, but with cool mysterious artifacts or building in the back (which are vaguely similar to the shield generators from The Empire Strike Back).
thanks for the kind words ,makes the heart feel good
and yes,for me an image comes from a vision ,and with a little story ,sure anyone can see what he wants in any piece of art,but i have also my own background stories that goes with my pictures...that's how i work!

This is the USS barracuda, exiting from a wormhole hyperdrive-jump...tachyonic propulsion were used by the small fleet to exit from it.
the blurring of the stars comes from the menkeiev/mac coy effect, itís due to the parallax of the stars ;the ship goes instantly from point A to point B in a matter of millisecond and the observer-probe has to adjust enormous distances in that time when virtually it hasn't moved at all ,thus producing a blur.
(this one is very old school styled by purpose; again ,somewhat FOSS and HARLOCK inspired)
comments greatly welcomed!

hi ,this was my entry for the newborn contest (edited)
...Once there were giants walking on this earth, fighting each other........fighting for what? For whom? Nobody knows.......it was such a long time ago, it has all been forgotten in the shadows of time.........now, those almost indestructible shells are the foundations of newborn cities...
How long do u draw already?
Do you have a book which helped you most?
How did u learn to draw figures in different angles?
Oh such a great work!
thanks a lot!
well ,i paint for 9 month now
previously it was only textures for models...
and i draw on paper in B&W since i"m a kid ,but never had the courage to go full painting and colors...
i don't have a book ,i look at a lot of illustrations,read some tutos,and take all critics seriously...
for characters it's better to have refs (take photos of your friends for exemple
and always use images for references.and of course a lot of work
to get good you must never stop
