Want to get better at environments but they always seem to end up being character pieces... Will be trying to update more consistently, I really need to get back up to speed.
This is one of my favorite pieces on this entire site. So much "cool" stuff nowadays is washed out and bleached; it's great to see some intense colors once in a while! Also, big fan of samurai stuff here, and this scratches that itch something mighty.
this is brutal. Im a fan
man love the future samarai. Super saturated colos but it works. Might want to kill the contrast on that background for some depth and add a few of those blues in your foreground to keep the complimentary scheme going...looks freaking awesome though.
Yeah I let a lot of things get a bit out of control with this guy--went through a LOT of different backgrounds. >_< But I'm learning from my mistakes.
Beautiful work. Very well done.
Intense colors dude. I think you could approach your enviroment pieces as narrative pieces as well. It feels less like a chore if you are telling something as well.
I have trouble doing that for some reason--not sure why as I have plenty of story ideas in my head but whenever I start a piece I kinda just doodle something and run with it. Not the most efficient way of doing things. >_<
It doesn't have to be that elaborate. Merchant pulling his carriage through a creepy forest is a story. A lavatory cleaning robot inspecting its work is a story. A troll eating a sausage on a river brook while a hungry dragon peeks over the treetops is a story. You can doodle and run with it regarding story elements as well I think.
this looks epic, colours look amazing but my favourite part has to be the flame effects. Sooooooo well done
I like the intense colors, and the striking contrast of the grassy field to the background.
Still it's cool And even though the colours are very strong they mix very fine ...
