Digital painting tutorial Dead Space 2 inspired

Digital painting tutorial Dead Space 2, here is a digital painting video and step by step tutorial inspired by playing Dead Space 2.  I was playing in for a while and I love it.  Though it is very spooky and creepy.  A lot of interesting scary creatures or humanoids called "necromorphs." I really like the main armor designs, there are many cool armors in this game.
As this blog progress, I am trying to make the painting a little more cinematic or storyboard frame like rather than character pin ups.  I think the format fits speed painting best.  Also I get to push myself further and further by challenging myself to find good composition and define lighting in the scene.  So if you are looking for basic drawing or painting tutorial, please look at the thumbnails above the blog or the right column.  If you scroll down the menu on the right column, you will find most of the basic and all the tutorials there.
And once in a blue moon, I will make a basic drawing tutorial, photoshop tips and tricks for painting and some art article that I find interesting.

Most of my step by step are very similar, only sometimes I will start of using just shapes.  I usually scribble or draw it out first in the most basic form.  Then I will paint a flat value onto the drawing to create a cool and clean silhouette.  After that I will refine the shape and the surrounding more by using value and edges.

Here is a final image, it could be further refine, but it's speedpainting so I have to stop.  (almost 2 hours)

I've always liked the design of that suit. The new site layout is cool by the way :)

Have you done any armor designs for the thief in guild wars 2? That profession's looking awesome :)

Yea I always thought you'd like that suit design. You should check out the suit on this guy in a game called Vanquish:

Probably one of the coolest suit designs I've seen.

@Dan you don't have to play the first. It is still as good.

@Pokepetter Thanks brother. No, no thief as far as I remember. I was primary assign to Warrior and Necro since the first GW. I barely get to do any other concept since there are so many of them I have to do. And hardly ever get to do any environment ;-(. Good times though.

@Chris That's cool! I really dig it! yeah I think I remembered seeing that game before.
