stage 1: greetings 'vryone, i cannot work in a|w maya at the moment, so i have decided to start a new painting. i have developed a quick sketch. please post quick comments or suggestions before i get to the main course of painting it. i will provide additional updates throughout the stages as i further progress.

*this piece will deal with subject matter damnation, and some additional elements will most likely be included that you don't currently see.

stage 3: i have completed a moderate rendering of mister naggiya's figure although there is still further refinement to be had as the painting progresses further down the pipeline. the the twicked lighting will surely change the tone of this creatures. please post comments/suggestions, as they are always welcome.

final stage: phew! finally completed; after a collective 15-16 hours or so, i have concluded my 2nd serious attempt @ digital painting. i am pleased with the results and i will continue to persue my interest with this medium. honestly, guys, so much more can be accomplished with digital mediums versus traditional mediums (such as oils on canvas or watercolors, etc,.). plus, it will only cost you a lazer color copy print out and the size of the sheet you desire for it to be printed out on. it much more easier on your pockets, than let's say, purchasing the linsed oil, the different size brushes, a canvas to paint on, paint thinner (cheap it is, though), an apron (for all the piggies!), and of course, the actual paints. digital is very efficient and a way of the future (now). since i am new to these boards, i just hope in the future that more people post suggestions while i am constructing a piece, instead of just glancing in and out. someone suggested that i add a fill light (which i completely forgot about) and it helped it out tremendously. you would be surprised, little comments go a long way.

the painting had a relatively weak lighting mechanism for it to be fully conviencing, so i had to pull back from the acrchive and reconsider the composition's lighting. this time it should be finished :p
