Rocks (Env 9)

env-9-12-20-2016-3

First env study painting where rocks are the main focus. I want to give my paintings a more traditional look so I stated painting with brushes that give a ‘dry brush’ effect. References use for painting are from Wikimedia Commons.

Wyvern Hero Concept Art v (Monster 22) (Project Phoenix)

I wasn’t happy with the last version, it was bothering me. I had to sleep on it to realize my mistake. The lighting is screwed up. Also, wings are usually more translucent. These mistakes where fixed. I’m still not %100 keen with this painting.Wished that I had made the pose more lively, but It should work fine as a ref for my 3d model. I want to make a more dynamic illustration of this critter if I can get the chance.

Alex’s Mug

alex9

A experimental painting of my dragon Alex. I wanted to fuse more lizard like qualities into him. I might of added too much. I spent too much time revising this painting over and over.  I’m on the fence if I like the redesign or not. I started this with no prelim sketches. Bad move. This is my first painting using Manga Studio 5, so that is probably another reason I spent longer on it. I’ve used MS4 in the past  but MS5 is amazing and has the same photoshop tools I NEED to use and are important in my workflow like masking, selection tools, and transform tools. I hope that it will also let you save tool presets but I haven’t found it yet. I MIGHT just be able to leave Photoshop for good. CC you later Adobe 🙂

Mountain Dragon

A dragon is guarding his home on a large spiky mountain.

I’ve been working on and off this painting for 5 month and put at least 17-18 hours of work into it. I think I’ve getting somewhere in my paintings 🙂

Wyvern (Dragon with wing arms) (Monster 15)

I’ve returned to the monster painting project. I thought it would be best something furn. This was painted inArtrage. I found out how to turn the ‘3d’ effect off the paints. This helped me blend the color more like I would in Photoshop. Speaking of photoshop, Artrage’s solution to masks is ‘stencils’ and they are driving me crazy, I keep accidentally moving them and cant find a way to lock them. I am happy with this quick painting and am getting closer to thinking like a painter.
