I´m amazed by your work, its not only that you are a master on digital paint and sketching, you have such an amazing comprehension of light. I wish my designs could come close to yours. But I´m kidding myself , you are some sort of wizard.
Anyway, did you have experience on acrylics or oils before going digital ? where did you study art?? How long ??
Yes, I used acrylics, oils, watercolours etc before I taught myself to paint on the computer. I studied Graphic Design at college, but I'm a self taught illustrator (did take art in high school, though I'm not sure it counts as I had very different ideas to what my teachers taught me ) As for being a wizard... I have a pointy hat... does that count? Cheers , and happy drawing!
Can't really take much credit for the concept - it was done through a client who was pretty specific about what they wanted. Real fun to work with though and they were very open to input etc. Cheers, glad you like!
you digital painting skills are AMAZING. the flesh bits on the lady look like they could be photo real what with all of the details in there. especially the back of the hand and the foot/ankle region. the tone and texture on the monster really tell what this guy WOULD feel like if he were real. you can tell by colour alone that his horns are hard and the skin is leathery. the lighting and shadow, with a healthy dose of yellow ambient light add an excellent sense of depth. all of this really pops against the taupe backdrop with the subtle puff of grey smoke. all of this hearkens perfectly to the classic monster films like Creature From the Black Lagoon, with a fun, modern-spoofy twist! BRAVO!
