Grand Space Opera 2D Entry: Daryl Mandryk


#361

Superb work, Daryl. The piece has the same great energy and life as your speedpaints, and that’s no easy task in an image with such a high level of polish and detail as this.

Excellent job!


#362

Now I remember why your illustrative style seemed so familar to me: you won the 2D Grand Prize for the Machineflesh Challenge (I was using you image as a desktop for 2 months).

hey thanks a lot guys, I’m happy you like it.

Evil Gerbil; thanks jason - I’m pretty happy with the way it finally turned out…There are parts I like better too…I think I’ve refined my technique a bit between now and machineflesh, so maybe that’s starting to show.

doug; thanks - yeah I start out very small…500x700 is a usual starting res, and the final one was quite large…3150x4494…I uprezzed twice during the process.

MattDixon; thanks matt - my only question is where was your entry? Surely you would have kicked some major butt.

ArtisticVisions; glad you liked my machinefelsh pic! They were both fun to do.
