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!!!

HERE IS THE LINK THE LAYERS [link]

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

Either that or they need to tighten the DD rulings. Or maybe have the DDs as completely random rather than them being selected.

Either way, there needs to be some way of improving their quality. Maybe if non-members could suggest DDs it would be better? I dunno
