What Started as a Demo

What started as a demo for my co worker/roommate Rob. Became kind of a full colored illustration/concept.

Big ups to edgar for all his suggestions while painting this , he even drew a basic shape of the monster on that bridge and I took it to a rendered finish. This is one benefits about living with other artists , is how they can push you and challenge your ideas while painting. Not to mention all the inspiration they can provide as well

This one of the more complex pieces I ever done , I kind of wanted a final fantasy type enviro with lots of people running around , more of a thriving environment as opposed to my usual stuff.

This is about 8 hours total , kind of long in my opinion , I think I can be faster.

I will be posting the psd of this piece soon so you can check out all the layers,

until then , We are having a house warming poker even at our apartment , wish me luck!!!

Nice work! What were you demonstrating to your roomate? Btw Thanks for keeping this blog updated. It keeps me inspired to keep trying to get better and not be lazy. If you ever have time just take a peek at my blog and drop a little critique it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
