What Started as a Demo by k04sk What Started as a Demo by k04sk
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!!!


UPDATE: WOW ANOTHER DAILY DEVIATION!!! SOOO COOL!!! MUCH THANKS TO :iconhellobaby: and :iconatramina: for the feature , it seriously humbles me out!!! . More to come thanks

What Started as a Demo by *k04sk. This amazing scenery is greatly detailed and has a lovely depth that makes it quite realistic. Nice! ( Suggested by Hellobaby and Featured by Atramina )

Beautiful environments bro. Nice work.
Do you ever use Sketchbook Pro? I work in Photoshop CS5 but I have to say I've been impressed with the speed increase using SB Pro. Some guy gave me a free copy at HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC and I can't stop using it. Even if you had to buy it it's only sixty bucks. Just thought your style would flow with it.

By the way Dust looks incredible. I can't wait to see it.

ive used sb pro back in the day for sketching , its not something I use professionally but i like it because the interface is simple and I can just relax and draw. But for the most part I work in cs5

thanks for the kind words in dust , i really appreciate it
