Epic use of lighting hate the overuse of "epic" nowadays but this warrants the adjective.

Its funny you say that; because thats exactly the philosophy I use when I illustrate: I try to draw a scene from a movie that I wished I was watching.

This compliment means a lot to me, thank you!

i dont understand how ur brain works.. how can u know what 3d render would look like... how do u know accurate lighting apart from the basics.. what goes through ur head... esp with no references.. are u some kind of prodigy?

Hey that makes 2 of us.
I have no idea how my brain works.

But I know that theres nothing special about it.
I draw a lot, I devote myself and practice all the time.
Prodigy? no. Hard worker? very.

man, I saw several drawings of yours and I really envy that charisma you've got. Unfortunately I can hardly draw a straight line and I want to believe that practice will make a difference to me.I've read somewhere some of your words, saying that you're self-taught.I'd say you're very talented. I've got one question: Would you manage to draw equally perfect images/ drawings on paper? I want to understand whether tech helps someone in learning how to draw. For ex. , I've seen some ideas in youtube, which would be impossible on plain paper, such as shadowing and coloring. I would really appreciate an answer :)

If it wasnt for photoshop I wouldnt be doing what im doing.
Oil and ink were just way too unforgiving and I didnt have the means ( or grades) to get an education in the arts.
Photoshop allowed me to make mistakes and either be able to undo them or capitalise on them without fear of losing what I liked.
Before photoshop I was doing pencil only with some sad, sad experiments in arylic and oils and some equally sad sculpture attempts.

So yes tech helps but its still boils down to how willing you are to devote yourself to art.

ty m8 for answering :) By the way one last thing. Can you suggest a tablet under 200e (~260$).I'm still using a mouse and a tiny tablet would be uncomfortable.I've heard Wacom rules in this area, but I've found some worthy TRUST products. What's your opinion?
Reply
:iconcryptcrawler:
Cryptcrawler Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2009
Definately get yourself a drawing tablet my friend.

Mine is about 5 years old ( an Intuos 2)
A Wacom board is really your best bet and easiest to transpose your traditional skills to.
Itll take you a week or so to really feel comfortable looking at the screen while drawing if you come into it fresh from traditional mediums, but persistance is your ally in art.

Very best wishes to you in your new adventure, send me a note anytime if you find yourself struggling, ill help if I can.

Love the sweepers, the play of light on their leathery skin and their facial and body expression. They pull you right into they mundane yet raw routine of existence. Makes me want to know more about them and some of the scenarios they have to deal with. You gotta put these guys in their own Situations, Alien garbage runs gotta be pretty interesting. These guys must got loads of stories to tell!!

Excellent (as usual) Best wishes for the new year. Glad to here about the gigs, and the book.

As I said, I would wait years.
