Dusk: A Vampire's Tale - Vampire



Another image I completed for Dusk: A Vampire's Tale. This one was completed fairly recently, and very much inspired by the 'Underworld' movies - wanted to achieve a similar feel to that of the movie's atmosphere. This one was a lot of fun to do, and also very challenging, as I was on a tight deadline. Thanks for looking!


Dusk - A Vampire's Tale: Anglo



One of the many images I completed for the upcoming Facebook game, Dusk. The deadline was very tight for these paintings, but I'm happy with how this turned out, especially in regards to color. For more information the game, make sure to check out the official website: http://www.dusk-game.com



Dusk - A Vampire's Tale: African American Male



One of the many images I completed for Dusk: A Vampire's Tale. I was asked to paint an African American male that resembled the rapper Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs. Lots of fun with this one. The deadline for this project was very tight, so I had to work very hard to get it completed with a refined finish. Official website for the game can be viewed at: http://www.dusk-game.com

Dusk - A Vampire's Tale: Beautiful Vampire Woman



A promotional image created for Dramatic Development's 'Dusk' Facebook video game, available this summer. This image was completely recently and definitely one of my favorites I've created for this game. Be sure to check out the game's official website at http://www.dusk-game.com for more information as well as an exclusive preview of some of the artwork I've done for the game.


Riot Shell



This is a collobaration between Abbas Saeleem Khan, who did the linework, and myself, who did the painting. This is a contest entry for Comic Idol's Cover Contest as well. The deadline was very tight, so I had to work around the clock to get this one finished, but I'm very happy with how it turned out overall.


Pin-Up Girl



This image came out of nowhere; Initially I started a caricature for a good friend, Athena, and eventually she gave me a different idea - a pin-up. Needless to say I was intrigued Smile I studied lots of old classic Pin-Up paintings before I approached this painting to help convey the proper feel for this type of image, and I think that research definitely paid off. More importantly, Athena was very pleased with how this image turned out. Mission=success!

Special thanks to my friends and fellow artists Linda Wong and Henning Ludvigsen for their input as well.


Olivia



This is a portrait of a very good friend. Olivia has always been supportive of me as an artist from a very young age, so I created this painting as a gift to her. I wanted to give this image a generally soft feel, so I avoided over detailing it and made a heavier use of softer brushes than I usually use. I'm happy with the results, and more importantly, Olivia is as well, so I consider this image a success in that regard.

Note: Olivia was not harmed during the making of this portrait.


Superman



This is my contest entry for 'Photo Reference For Comic Artist's' contest, in which they asked to paint a DC comic book character based on one of their photo references. I wanted to paint something iconic, so I went with Superman and chose a fairly straight forward pose. My goal with this image was to push the details as far as possible. I spent quite some time creating several brushes for this piece, such as the cloth texture, skin pores, etc. I feel this really helped bring the image to life, and I'm pretty satisfied with the results as well. Thanks for looking!

Leonidas



My brother, who poses for reference in many of my paintings, wanted me to paint him in a style that was similar to the movie '300'. Painting him in Spartan gear was a lot of fun, and a bit challenging as well. A lot of thought went into this piece, from the composition to the setting, and I feel I have a stronger piece of work because of that. I learned a lot about how colors work as well working on this piece. Overall I'm very satisfied with this one.


Asher



I promised a friend I'd paint something for her quite some time ago, but I never had the chance to until recently. The concept of this piece is her idea, so it looks quite different than my other works, but I was determined to paint it as close to her vision as possible, and I think I succeeded in that regard. The hardest part about this image was the hair - I generally dislike painting hair and view it as a challenge itself, but overall, I'm quite satisfied with how that aspect turned out.


Apollo and Daphne



The Greek Mythological tale of Apollo and Daphne was something I tried many times before to paint without much success... until recently. I felt like this story could make for some very interesting imagery, so I was very determined to get it finished. I put a lot of thought and work into the background in this one. In general I feel like I spend too much time concentrating on the figures during the painting process, so I tried to break that flow with this image, spending lots and lots of hours on the background alone. I created quite a few custom brushes for this one, specifically for the leaves on the background and grass in the foreground to help speed up the process, as well as obtain some very realistic textural effects as well. The tree's textures were a lot of fun to work on as well... and very, very time consuming, but I feel like I have a much more stronger and believable image because of it. Overall I'm quite satisfied with how this image turned out, and I hope you enjoy it as well.


Phoenix



I've been studying the works of Boris Vallejo for quite some time, and I wanted to paint something in that style for quite some time. I learned much about how to go about color and skin tones studying his work, and I think this image greatly benefited from that. For once I'm actually quite satisfied with how this image turned out; Easily my best work in terms of colors and composition IMO. The figure was referenced from Mjranum-Stock, and was very much inspired by the character from the 'X-Men' comic books/movies.

Lost



I had this theme in my head for quite some time, and finally found some time to paint it. I wanted to paint something that was surreal in style, while leaving it open for interpretation. I learned a lot about conveying mood in this one as well.

The Resurrectionist



A collaboration between myself and Abbas Saleem Khan (bakatron.com). The underwater theme tend to be a bit challenging for me, but I'm very happy with how this one turned out. Thanks for looking Smile

Wrath of Medusa



I wanted to paint Medusa for quite some time, but haven't had a chance to until recently. This image was a lot of fun to paint, but also extremely challenging; The statue's 'folds' and texture in particular were very time consuming, as was the strands of grass on the foreground. For those interested, a tutorial on how I painted this image will be available soon on Photoshop Digital Painting Magazine as well.

Stoned



This image was created for Digital Arts Magazine, as a tutorial on how to create a portrait of a statue. I had a lot of fun creating this one, especially in regards to the lightning as well as the texture work. The tutorial deals with applying both photo textures as well as hand painted textures to create a believable result. Be sure to check out the complete tutorial next month on Digital Arts Magazine!

Persephone



I created this image in order to practice painting drapery, which I view as a challenge. Greek Mythology inspires me heavily as well, so I wanted to show that with this image. Persephone's story mainly evolves her abduction from the Earth realm, to the Underworld, courtesy of Hades. This image deals with that concept (albeit a bit subtly). The figure's pose was referenced from [URL="http://lockstock.deviantart.com/"]Lockstock [/URL]as well, who has some great fantasy themed stock photography.

A very lengthy tutorial on how this image was created will be available in June of next month's [URL="http://www.advancedphotoshop.co.uk/"]Advanced Photoshop Magazine[/URL] as well, so be sure to check that out.

Self Portrait



I wanted to do a fantasy-themed self portrait for quite some time, but havenít had the chance to until recently. I opted for a fantasy theme with this one mainly because I felt it would make for some interesting imagery. I wanted to emulate the look of those early classical paintings, so I applied what I have learned from doing the Master Copy studies a while back into this painting. I feel like a have a stronger piece of work as a result of those studies.

Lost From Sea



This image started off very... unplanned. At first, I initially wanted to paint an underwater scene, but I got bored halfway through and decided to do something a bit different. I'm glad I did at the end of the day, as an underwater scene would have probably been too cliche.

Pose referenced from: [[URL="http://lockstock.deviantart.com/art/Dark-Drapery-pack-three-82966447"]link[/URL]]

Joker Was Here


I recently saw The Dark Knight on Blu Ray, and immediately after decided I had to paint the Joker. I wanted to do something a bit more original, however, so I tried to depict the Joker more as a vampire than anything else (hence the black attire as opposed to the classic purple).

This was painted in a period of 3 days, and I did my best to avoid overworking this piece, so I stopped much earlier than I usually do.

Dancing With The Devil


This piece was commissioned over a year ago, and I had much fun, and frustration, in creating it. I don't usually experiment much with a dark theme, so this was a fun change from the norm. I was asked to do something very Tim Burton-ish, whom I'm a huge fan of, and what you see here is the result.

I wanted the composition to be simple, concentrating on atmosphere above all else, so I decided to keep everything pretty much empty. The more elements I tried to add, the more the atmosphere suffered. I learned with this piece, specifically how to create rainy effects and enhancing atmosphere. I kept the color theme simple and generally cool to add to the atmosphere as well.


Wonder Woman


Portrait of Wonder Woman. I approached this image in a similar way Alex Ross approaches his paintings; Using a photo reference to obtain dynamic lightning information, but not being a complete slave to it. I really wanted to push colors with this one, so I spent a lot of time working on the colors as well as studying color theory in general. A tutorial on how I created this image will be featured in GoMotion magazine soon, so keep an eye out for that Smile Figure referenced from: [[URL="http://ravengirl-stock.deviantart.com/art/wonder-woman-3-45766114"]link[/URL]]

*Special thanks to Henning, Baka, and CGDude for their input Smile

...

'Wonder Woman' is property of DC Comics.


Blade of Fire


This piece was a commission at first, but due to problems with the client, it fell through so I decided to make it my own. I put a lot of thought into this one, from the color scheme to the composition, and I think it really paid off. I consider this my best work to date, by far. Thanks for looking, and here's to a great 2009!


Save Us


I decided to update this piece a bit, as I consider it to be my strongest in terms of theme. Among the changes were better color harmony, much more texture (I tried to emulate the look of those old Master paintings), and more definition, particularly in the clothing and face. Enjoy Very Happy


Lady Gaia

This piece took me quite a while to complete; I started this off in early February, with a much more different concept; Eventually I altered the theme for something more darker. All in all, this took around 100 hours of work; The background was especially difficult for me to do.

Special thanks to Melanie Delon (Eskarina), who helped me out a tremendous amount with this piece (especially in terms of the colors).

The figure was referenced from http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com.

Batman Caricature


I painted this a while back, decided to finally post it. Approximately 10 hours of work.

Catwoman


Portrait of Catwoman. This started off as practice, but got a bit out of hand. Angelina Jolie was naturally used as reference Smile

Indiana Jones and the Secrets From Beyond


Book cover done for Marek Cardew. This one took a while I have to say, but I'm quite satisfied witht he results. I learned a lot with this piece, especially with regards to skin tones.


Going Under

Portrait done for a fellow artist. Originally, this was gonna be your standard portrait, but I decided to be more brave and adapt a more Fantasy style theme. Overall I'm quite satisfied with the results.

Wedding Gift

A gift for two friends Smile




SPEEDPAINTS/ MASTER COPIES / PRACTICE/ UNFINISHED WORKS, ETC.

I bet your room is really neat and tidy.

I saw a lot of central and symmetrical 'bullseye' compositions.
Explore the mysterious and uncharted out lands of the picture plane.

Nice rendering.

My room is a mess Very Happy You have a point about the 'bullseye' compositions, I haven't really noticed that before until you pointed it out. I'll definitely try to be more bold in the future in that regard. Sorry for the late reply btw.
