whoa, that boar's head one is quite different from what I'm used to seeing on here. And the shading is great.
good work on all of this, your rock texture is great in the last one

Wonderful stuff here. I really like how you frame you image with the darks like you've done for the girls.

Looking forward to more updates :thumbsup:

Wow... I'd love to see how you put these together... I hope you'll make a video of one (or more, ofcourse ;)) of your awesome images someday, so even n00bs like me could understand how a masterpiece like this comes together... You just shut me up, I have absolutely nothing to crit, awesome work... :thumbsup:

subscribing...! is it me, or does your style really suit dark subjects?!

nice latest image - thanks for the step-by-step. couple of questions - are you adjusting the levels to get to the high-contrast image, or doubling layers (steps 7-8)? also, do you know what you're going for before beginning, or was that a random shape?

06-04-2006, 11:37 PM
hey man!:) thx:thumbsup:

Well i dont know, i can go for "happy-paintings" too but none that i reffer

1:are you adjusting the levels to get to the high-contrast image, or doubling layers?

Well sometimes i just duplicate the layers and do a mutliply, and sometimes i go straight for darker tones and nail the image that i find suitable.

2:do you know what you're going for before beginning, or was that a random shape?

almost similiar answer as above, sometimes i have a clear view of what i want to paint, and other times i just paint randomely some shapes till my imagination creates an image of the painted shapes

Thank you for the step-by-step, man.. This gives me so much inspiration... But it doesn't give me the skills to do what you do with seemingly so much ease... I envy you and all other masters of 2D :thumbsup:

06-05-2006, 09:50 AM
Agreed! When I need some inspiration, I think looking at this thread will do! The lighting and atmosphere in your paintings are all so effective... keep up the good work :D

06-05-2006, 10:29 AM
Stefander,yueyume: thanks a bunch, and yep this thread will keep going!:buttrock:

07-10-2006, 02:29 AM
wow SamsonsReaper these are AMAZING... I do like the dark content very much - and thanks for the quick tutorial (I can see alot in it thankyou!)

I especially like the highlights that come from the shadows - the highlights on the womans boots in the first picture - perfect.

07-10-2006, 10:55 PM
yeah i was going to say the same thing. Wonderful drawings. I love them all. Especially the first two women and the one with the boars head. Beautiful! I think you are a great artist. Your lighting on these drawings are amazing. (Something that i am trying to work on) ;)

07-10-2006, 11:06 PM
This has to be some of the best digital art I've seen in a while, keep them coming. I agree that this style really brings the best in you.

07-18-2006, 10:14 PM

10-14-2006, 12:54 PM

10-15-2006, 02:41 AM
oh wow...I love all these works! :bounce: You have amazing skills!

10-16-2006, 09:31 AM
Not only are your light/shadow-play amazing, but your skin textures and sense of organic dynamics are outstanding! And the darkness and the gore...hehehehe, yes please. It's nice to have at least one dark corner around here where fairy queens in satin dresses are absent - or eaten alive :twisted:

10-16-2006, 09:42 AM
Woah SamsonReaper, how come this is just the first time i see this thread? EEKS :scream:
