Arctic Tomb Final?

Hey guys, I did some more work on my piece but I'm still not satisfied with it. Time to move on to B.

A for Archer Final

Thanks for the feedback guys. I think It really made a difference. I pumped up the contrast in areas I wanted the eye to go and softened up edges and toned down contrast in the back. I think this helped give a better initial read. On to B!

Also I changed the format to the original blogger format... I prefer it. what do you guys think?

the Aquarium

Meh... should probably have chairs

Anvil - German with "Chuch Windows"

I am a little bummed I was unable to try this out with my Wacom. Despite that though, I am happy with what came out, just need to raise the bar with the upcoming letter B.

Acrylics + Water Color


So I decided to work on Mr. Bat Ears and somewhat pleased with what I came out with. As I worked on this guy I felt like I wanted to add what type of alien gear he would use or maybe his ship but this is as far as I could get at the moment so I'll call this finished for now. On to the next one!

German Anvil

First layer of water color. Need better lighting.

A for Alien

I'm designing an alien! I'm leaning towards possibly a video game protagonist so I tried to create characters that I would like to play myself as well as getting certain designs out of my head to see how much I can push my character design skills. So far I'm liking the bottom row most so I might go with one of those guys.

Arctic Tomb Update

Hey guys, I did some refining and added some things. I had fun working on it so far. Let me know what you think.  
German Anvil with "Church Windows." Need to figure a pleasing setting, and item configuration, but it should be fun to paint the metal texture.

Arctic Tomb lay-in

So here's the first lay in for the arctic tomb. Let me know what you guys think!

Arctic Tomb

Hey guys, here are some thumbnails for the arctic tomb. I like the idea of a tomb being carved into the side of a mountain so I went with that. So far I like the shots that are pulled back more; 1,5 and 6. I'm still gathering reference and I'm going to take it into photoshop. Let me know what you think.
