    horizon line looks really low. i assume this is the tail gunner of a ww2 bomber but the horizon line makes it look like the weapon is situated in a tall church tower or something

    oh and read up on atmospheric perspective; your land gets darker as it gets further away from the viewer which doesn't make sense

    Drew a pika:
    The lighting on the horrifying creature that makes up my nightmares is great, but you need to learn textures, The rocks for example look velvety and the lighting on them is shiny when they would have a coarse texture to them.

    Also you need to take into consideration sharpness. The lighted areas will have sharp edges on both the mouse and the rocks, but currently most of them have the same edge strength as the shadows and background, making the field behind the rocks seem very flat.

    edit- I still love this piece.

    Here is the full video, enjoy!
    Are you having it load a map on launch? Because that's kind of stupid considering you can just make a background video.

    Looping it is way to hard considering everything moves, and it makes the actual loading of one of the game maps significantly faster since the engine has previously loaded a level.

    Loading time if not loaded a previous map is ten seconds, and first time loading takes two seconds.

    I just bought my first model kit, it's a squad of PMCs and a VIP official. I never had any modelling experience this is my first, and I say I'm not disappointed at the results, but also not very proud of it.

    Thank you. Although I guess it's safe to say that I need to start using textured digital brushes instead of basic/soft ones. This is also my first serious environmental piece so I'm hoping to improve later on.

    I like the perspective and stance. Seems full of action even if it isn't actually doing anything.

    For all of you guys looking for references and brushes and stuff like that, I found an awesome site filled with those by one of my favorite artists, and so far it's been incredibly useful. Everyone should check this out!

    http://www.sycra.net/ (resources page)

    Hope you guys find it as helpful as I did :p

    I've had Photoshop Elements for a while, but I've used it almost exclusively for drawing/coloring and texturing models. I've used it a little before to touch up pictures or cut out the background, but not much else. So I decided to try a little practice for fun.
    I've been playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution a lot, so I 'shopped myself as Adam Jensen. Couldn't get my hair right, though. I've also begun listening to Gorillaz (bought Demon Days a few months back and picked up Plastic Beach the other day) so I made meself look like 2-D from the DD cover.



    It's not the best, but it's pretty good.

    Edited:

    Oh yeah, I made these for profile pictures on Facebook and such.

    I think this looks a bit more like the cover art to Demon Days.

    Yeah, I can probably mess around with the colors and shading some more to get it to look nicer.

    The explosions are lacking, maybe make them brighter. I actually liked the first one with no action more, this somehow has less action even with the explosions. Also the light blue highlights don't really make sense. Metal reflects its own colour.

    I think the action thing has to do with leaving space for imagination. In the first pic the other mech is shooting, implying that combat is on but only the viewer's imagination is the limit how big and beautiful the explosions would be. Now you've limited that to what you've painted.

    Also, bit over an hour speedpaint thingy, crits are welcome.

    He kinda looks like he's got kiddie proportions. Short arms and big head. Real nice color though.

    yeah of course they're fine, I used one for 2 years, but I don't get why people would steal one as they're not very expensive or hard to find.

    generally the kind of people that break and enter aren't the type of people that have experience in sitting down and colouring with a tablet
