Digital Painting - Snow landscape

original size 4921 X 3508 pixels

close up @ 100%
This painting was done a while ago, and printed onto canvas. It was done in both Painter and Photoshop. I wanted to test how natural I could get the brush marks to look and this was the best result from all the tests that I did. It looked even more natural when printed onto canvas, giving it that canvas texture. The only thing missing was the thickness you get from traditional paint.

Fictional ad campaigns for cleat concepts

Here are some personal concepts for cleats where I also designed fictional brand logos to make mock ad campaigns. These are only some of the logo designs, I'll post the other logo designs later once I get around to putting them into a style guide.
This is strictly personal work and not a reflection of the direction Naturalmotion Games is taking.

Rangdum Monastery, Ladakh

 Acrylic on canvas. 24"x20"

It's based on a photo by Olivier Föllmi (one of my favourite photographers)
I changed the backdrop for mountains in Nepal although the monastery is on the Tibetan plateau in Ladakh, India, sshh! artistic license.

Tonal exercise

I decide to revamp one of my old layouts with some dramatic lighting to give it that eerie look that was initially intended for it. It was more of a tonal exercise in visual storytelling.
