First post for 2017! Let there be many more like this one!

And now… the process!

  1. I wanted to expand the concept from my previous piece: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/BOKr6 So i started off with that sketch and expanded it.neuromancer_wip1
  2. Here I needed to see a color mockup. Easily done by working with adjustment layers.

3. I knew i wanted to have more detail. The idea of this character was to be a Shakespearean self questioning robot, made up from various mechanical pieces and organic matter. To represent the essence of flesh and machine brought together rather forcefully.neuromancer_wip3

4.The character was supposed to hold a human skull in his hand. But the painting was not very clear. So i went in Blender and made a 3d model that I later integrated in the final painting.3d

Paranoia in the Alien Jungle

I’m all alone now. The others are gone. As if the jungle just swallowed them whole. There’s no response from the starship, either. There’s nothing for me here! What am I doing in this god forsaken corner of the Galaxy? Shhh! I heard something! Wait…what is that glowing thing…is it…No, can’t be. But still…wait…is that… IS THAT A… …f..zzz….^@#4rr*& -signal lost-

Shaman

Daily sketch no1.

Yeah right. As if I’m gonna stick to this schedule. This might be the 3rd time i start something like this and trust me, it usually ends abruptly! I’m more like Usain Bolt when it comes to this type of challenges…I run short and finish quick.

 

Anyway, here’s a shaman. He had rotten fish for lunch.

Flyby

A speedpainting I did using a rough 3d base. Spaceships, space station and typical sci fi stuff.

And here is a process log. I did a few color variations before settling on the greensih one. All in all around it took me under 3 hours, i think.

Neuromancer

What do you do on a perfect autumn Saturday? You paint cyborgs and skulls, because that’s what you like to do! This one took me around 3 hours, but the easiest and quickest part was putting color and lights on it. I included the process images for a comparison of my workflow.

Skoolio – render test

I’ve been doing some render tests lately, experimenting with keyshot. Bump maps, specs, 3 point lighting, textures etc etc. After I got some interesting renders I composited them in Photoshop. This is definetly something i’m going to milk in the future! Skulls rulz!!!

 

Götterdämmerung

I made this painting thinking how much technology is part of our lives. This is a darker side of my introspection. Human race has evolved from nothing to being it’s own god. We’ve understood the laws of nature and we managed to develop technology and use it as a means to ease life, but also to control and destroy life. In the end, if we are not careful, we might end up consumed by this very same technology. Thus, the Dawn of Gods.

And now…el processo!

Sancta Maligna

We are witnessing an era where the sacred is being corrupted. Moral values are being perverted on the altar of material gains. Churches are run not by believers, but by businessmen and fanatics. Religion doesn’t heal souls anymore, but it drives masses to the voting ballots or in terrorist attacks. Priests act as masters of their flocks and impersonate the Gods. There is a plague in our souls and we don’t know how to cure it. Death will spare no one. Worms are universal.
