Concept Art, Speedpainting: Sorcerrer and Knight Concept painting.

Sorcerrer and Knight Concept painting.

This concept art or concept drawing (should I say painting) just came out of nowhere in my head, I might have a tutorial coming up soon, but I still can find where I put the step by step.

March 2011, I came back and take a look at my old quick digital painting character concept work this post, hopefully I will have time to remake this design in 2011 and repost it.  ;-)

The one above was done in 2007 and it is very outdated.  I will redo the sorceress again.
But here is a 2011 version of a Dark Mage.  It is more up to date and well... better execution.

is there any other ways of getting into the gaming industry??? i know that u have to use photoshop along with a slew of other programs, but i just cant afford them, how would i get over this handicapped????
XIA said…
Ano> goto download a free paint program. It's as good as PS IMO. Also get a Genius MousePen tablet, they are only $40 on amazon. There is never a handicap. Handicap always will make you a better person, because if there is a "WILL" there will always be the "WAY" just the matter of figuring out "HOW"
