Lol at your new avatar. But I really like the way you incorporate "towers" into your pieces. Like this one. It leaves a lot to your imagination. Like what is it? Part of some downed ship? Architecture from a long lost race? A monument? But what I like about it the most is how it makes you feel so small, that there's a huge (at least big) presence right off in the distance.

That's why I loved living in NY I guess. :)

Anyways, keep it up. Your work inspires me to try to do something myself art wise.

I see your blessed with PS cs5.. My mac can't run it good so Im missing a lot of features :S

Great contrast in this painting by the way :) I do think the character has a bit to much detail so my eye is now more attracted towards the guy instead of the tower. (or is this done intended?)

I dont really get how you did this using those mixer brushes though... or is the background an actual photo?

David-Holland Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2010
Weeeellllllll i blob in the main colours first using a brush with plenty of load and 0% mix, then i begin to blend them together to get the fluffy look using the same brush but with 100% wetness 20% load and 100% mix. Simples! :D

This is really nice. Reminds me of the Forerunners (Halo). What are these brushed you're using for clouds? They're great. :D
