Here are my latest works. I hope you like them.
Futuristic Hangar, Photoshop/SketchUp
April 24, 2012 at 6:46 pm #48435
Nice work. Really impressive stuff.
April 28, 2012 at 4:39 pm #48442
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.

Thanks a lot folks! Here’s more to look at.
This is a test character for Snow Globe games. Didnt get the gig but it was a valuable experience.
August 7, 2012 at 5:40 pm #48785
Heres another. Concepts of male and female versions of the same character.

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.

Very nice art mate, keep up the good work. ;)
September 21, 2012 at 12:49 pm #48987
Thanks a lot Mantikore, Still hard at it. You have good stuff too! Great work. I’ll keep posting stuff here anyway.
September 21, 2012 at 1:26 pm #48988
Maybe we’ll be able to work on something together in the future. ;)
October 10, 2012 at 2:21 pm #49053
that’s some beautiful work man. i love the map for the mobile games company.
November 6, 2012 at 12:37 am #49188
Thanks a lot felix,
Here’s a new personal piece. It aint game art i know. But hey.
Its called ‘Milkshakes’.
I hope you like it!
November 7, 2012 at 9:45 am #49191
Wow, some great work!
Are you mainly focused on concept art or are you interested in the nitty gritty of producing in-game visuals?
November 13, 2012 at 6:12 pm #49221
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.

Heres some new stuff.
My own twist on Gray Fox from MGS
April 5, 2013 at 1:19 pm #49878
My first Zbrush sculpt. Gonna drop it in PS to see what I can do. Goin for a creature that might inhabit an alien rainforest. A dead eyed lurker, waiting to pounce like a velociraptor.
April 5, 2013 at 3:52 pm #49880
Loving your work here man, in particular, Gray Fox, bloody brilliant version of him!
April 9, 2013 at 12:45 pm #49887
Thanks RedXIV. Gray fox was my favourite.
April 9, 2013 at 1:37 pm #49888
Love your work, superb compositions. Count Corwin and the Powercell stand out for me.
Keep up the great work!
April 9, 2013 at 3:16 pm #49889
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.
You should have a look at the game dev section on reddit.
Lots of indie devs post up there.

this one is really inspiring :D beautiful
May 4, 2013 at 9:15 pm #49985
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.
May 5, 2013 at 11:35 am #49987
Wow! That looks amazing – like a Guillermo Del Toro movie monster.
May 8, 2013 at 8:35 am #49989
Thanks anthony! Im glad you like it. I like the comparison too. He’s got some good monsters in his flicks.
July 25, 2013 at 2:51 pm #50291
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!
July 25, 2013 at 5:56 pm #50292
well done. that is great news

November 20, 2013 at 6:57 pm #50619
Thanks a lot Niall. Always pluggin away.
November 23, 2013 at 1:11 pm #50624
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.
January 13, 2014 at 6:18 pm #50700
Thanks Roganski. Good idea. Ill do some more images of her and develop her more. But for now, heres a monsta!
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.
Thanks a lot!

Rid – Sci-fi Concept.
Someone just got dumped into space.
January 19, 2014 at 8:01 pm #50712
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?
January 31, 2014 at 1:28 pm #50737
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?
March 22, 2014 at 3:27 pm #50864
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.

Excellent speed concepts.

March 28, 2014 at 2:23 pm #50876
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!

Heres some more development images of it.

More stuff. The lava character is a speedpainting excercise. 1hr. Its from a while back so I cant remember the topic in the FB group.
This Zbrush sculpt is a creature/dinosaur im working on. I hope to have a full figure done when I get the time.
February 2, 2015 at 6:46 pm #104604
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. =)
