    Yeah, nice work. Good to see some 3d work creeping in there too. I think a lot of big sized studios who hire concept artists these days expect a good understanding of 3d. Most of the best concept guys who’s work I’ve seen recently seem to do a lot of work in software like ZBrush. It’s quick to model 3d concept stuff in there and then the artist creating the low/ high polygon models has something to work directly from.
    Keep up the good work.

    This is a test character for Snow Globe games. Didnt get the gig but it was a valuable experience.

    Here is a map test done for a mobile games company.
    I was given the basic ‘nude’ map layout and the brief was for a floating island with a summer theme.
    Heres what I did.
    I hope you like it.

    Wow, some great work!

    Are you mainly focused on concept art or are you interested in the nitty gritty of producing in-game visuals?

  • #49221

    Noely
    Participant

    Thanks Frankie,

    I love concept art and the idea of nailing a piece based on a description. Plus the possibility of that piece moving on to be built in 3D, animated and take center stage in a AAA title is a dream of mine too.
    However, I would also love to see my Art in-game.
    I am in the process of producing in game visuals for a game myself and a few mates are putting together. Long way to go but I am learning the trade.

    Thanks again,

    Havn’t posted on here in ages but just thought your work was worth the praise. Fantastic stuff. You should be bombarding games studios with your portfolio.

    Thank you very much 3dFoin. I’m glad you like it.
    Here is my Zbrush sculpt after Photoshop. Had to finish it off. Get it done.

    The ‘Bowlhead’ is understood to be an alien genus of gephyrostegid reptiliomorph amphibian.
    Bowlheads are extremely agile hunters that inhabit the banks all along the ‘JJa’ river in the Faankoom Rainforest.
    They will hunt down large prey in twos and threes with frightening speed, scaling the trees and swimming to get a better vantage point. Often, their best approach is to wait in the dark waters of the JJa until their thirsty and unsuspecting prey, sometimes twice their size, is dragged under and drowned.
    These creatures make the journey through Faankoom a very difficult task indeed.

    I have just received an Excellence Award from 3DTotal for my piece ‘Bowlhead’ (above). On August 3rd, it will be on the 3DTotal homepage for 12 days before becoming a permanent addition to their galleries. As you may know, the standard of art in these galleries is amazing and it is a pretty tough selection process so I am very happy and very proud to have my work chosen and to share my award.
    Thanks a million!
    Here’s to improving everyday!

    Nice work. An excellent main character in a 3d action type game. I’d say shes worth doing a bit more work on aswell. Views of her from other angles, with her hood down, maybe an action pose or two to give the animators a bit of info etc. Good work though. Really like it.

    Thanks Roganski. Good idea. Ill do some more images of her and develop her more. But for now, heres a monsta!

    Host
    Some poor human has been made host to an alien parasite that lives in the stomach, while it controls the body and mind with worm-like arms that burst through the head and shoulders.
    The stomach also fills up with bile and acid creating a defence mechanism that will burst and burn if the parasite is ever disturbed. Nasty.

    Creature Design
    Silk-Purse Flyer

    This little fellow might not be the most handsome of creatures to the human eye. However, in his world, he is a supermodel.
    The line along his side will pulse different colours during the courting process. Making him quite the catch to his female counterparts.
    The more varied the colours, the better his chances at finding a mate.
    Its favourite food is the nectar of the Gurita, a flower that dwarfs this little creature as he flies right into its opening.
    It is safe in its world as his blood is pure poison, making him unpalatable to any poor creature that might fancy a bite.
    Its name comes from the old saying, ‘You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear’.
    Because both of its wings resemble pigs ears, attached to something as colourful and as beautiful as a silk purse.

    Done for ConceptArt.org’s Creature of the week.

    Really nice, I love the giant and the airlock concept (although that one’s a little heavy on the anamorphic lens flare).

    I’m curious, have you ever tried rigging & animating your head models?

  • #50737

    Noely
    Participant

    Hi satchmo, thanks a lot! I keep getting that feeling off the airlock one too. I think it needs toning down a little.
    No I haven’t tried rigging and animating yet. That’s on the list of things to do. There’s a lot on that list.
    For now Im just trying to get comfortable with Zbrush as a sculpting tool.

    Really great artwork, Noely! The "Rid – Sci-fi" concept is my favourite at the moment :D

    Just out of curiosity: once you have a stable idea of what you’re going to put down in a painting, how much time does it usually get to complete it?

  • #50864

    Noely
    Participant

    Thanks LostTrainDude, it depends really. If I want to render a piece properly it could take 10+ hours. Some of these took longer as I was experimenting with the programs. However others like the Vein Mauler and the character concepts took about 4 hours. Then the ‘really big train’ piece took me just over an hour. Thanks for the kind words.

    The robot graveyard is good, but the colours seem off to me – seems like it needs a lot more contrast to give it more impact.

    I love the archdemon though, that’s awesome. Great atmosphere, nice lighting, and I really like the extra-wide format. Great work!

    Holy shit, dude! This stuff is impressive! Do you have any particular influences or type of work you particularly like working on? It’s just interesting how many fields and genres you’ve touched on with this forum page…

    You’ve gotta a lot of character portraits, (and I’m mostly a poly-pushing artist, but ‘nice anatomy’, if that means anything!), but you’ve also got a lot of cool environmental scenes. Have you tried taking one character or environment and making a series of images on the topic? Not so much comics, but maybe some sequential views of one of your cities, or one of your characters moving through it? It’s be fun to see how you’d visualise someone or something inhabiting the worlds you paint, from different angles, with different lighting conditions, etc.

    Very cool stuff, either way. Glad I found this page. =)
