I've been messing around in artrage a little, and its a pretty cool program...using it in combination with photoshop could produce some pretty interesting results
I feel like with a lot of my artwork i avoid doing actual drawing and instead just hint and things through texture and random strokes, so here i'm taking away all the color and value and leaving just the drawing.

For one of my classes we are giving ourselves our own assignments and for this one I decided to do an assignment after one of Feng Zhu's youtube videos. Basically what I'm trying to do is combine one animal and one vehicle and create a believable design. My idea, as the title says, is to combine a helicopter and a humming bird and I wanted to try and avoid anything military so i was thinking this could be used to fight forest fires.
not sure if I'm ready to call this done, id like to re do the rendering and i don't really like how its composed... feels empty in a bad way

In the aftermath of the global war, a few survivors found themselves in Applewood, Colorado; the last city in the United States to still have power.
