/GhostRiders

Hey! So thought I'd open this pic up to you all and ask you if you'd help me out with some crits? Please, rip it to bits!
I included a bit of the process too.

Somewhere02

Just another quick sketch for tonight. Really trying to keep the layer numbers down. Apart from 2 adjustment layers (hue/sat and levels) I got this speedy in under 10 layers. Its sad that that's what I'm most happy about :/

|Nolan

So I think I have to attribute these sketches to Christopher Nolan. Inception really did blow me away, regardless of hype. I could pretty much go on for a while about it, but I'll just say, go see it! And get hold of the soundtrack too.
With these sketches, I realised something about learning that seems obvious when I say it, but as much as thinking and studying something is import for learning...the doing is just as if not more important for learning. Sometimes not thinking, just playing will teach you things you didn't even consider.
Hope you like em!

]LightandEnviro Study


Hey. So I've been pretty slack with finishing sketches recently. Spent more time relearning environments and playing Red Dead :D
But heres the kind of thing I've been working on. A fast way to generate shots and lighting setups. Still needs alot of working out. Heres the same shot lit in three different ways, trying to convey a different mood for each. Hope you like em, I'll try get some finished next time.

|2Quick'ns


Trying to learn and improve the ol' environments. Been really inspired by the incredible MassEffect2 which was so epic is blew up my xbox and red-ringed it. So I'm playing Dantes Inferno in the mean time.
The main enviro guy on mass effect was Mikko K whos work blows me away. So I wanted to try 'decode' his approach. Hope you like!

Long time no update! Had a major break over christmas which was great. But now its back to the tablet. Heres my entry for Mike Lim's BeautifulGrim event.
This image is based on the Jacobs Ladder quote: "If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. If you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth."
