Tumblr!

Hey everyone,

It's been a while! Just wanted to let you know that I've hopped on the Tumblr train as well. I'll be posting my work there instead of Blogger from now on. It is much more convenient:

Hey everyone,

I decided to start my own Facebook page only dedicated to my art. If you have an FB account, you can go ahead and like it to be up to date with my work. I'll be posting stuff everyday:

Painter 12 test

I've found this little sketch I did when I bought Painter 12 couple months ago. I jumped from Painter 10 to 12 and skipped 11. I don't know about 11 but this one looks much less buggy than Painter 10. I quite like it...

Happy 2012!

I'm a bit late but happy 2012 everyone! I'm hoping that this year I'll be more productive in terms of personal work. Here's another self portrait to start the year. I kinda look like a member of Bee Gees but oh well! This is what happens when you experiment with colors and shapes...

ImagineFX - Issue 62 workshop

Couple months ago, the nice chaps at ImagineFX asked me to put together a workshop for them. It's about limiting your colour palette while painting digitally using a gamut mask. You can find it in ImagineFX issue 62. There's a 6 hour video, photoshop brushes and all sorts of other exciting stuff included as well. It's already out so go check it out.

Here's the image I created:


And this is the issue cover:


I figured that recording while you're painting is a bit distracting. You feel like someone is watching you, you know what I mean? weird. Well anyway, hope you like it. If you buy the issue and watch my video, I would be more than appreciated if you drop a couple of comments here.

Cheers!

Marauder

This is a character I did for Paizo Publishing a while back. A Marauder for Pathfinder series. I thought it's worth posting...

Madgator album cover

Wow! I'm so lazy. Another four months without any updates. Well, we're really busy at Lionhead trying to push Fable 3 out of the door so I could't find much time to do personal stuff lately. But I had done an album cover a while ago. It was for a Brazilian Heavy Rock band called Madgator. Give them a listen here: http://www.myspace.com/madgatorofficial

They are pretty amazing actually and it's their debut album. I did the identity, cover illustration and booklet design. Here's how it looks:


It was fun to do and they are really nice chaps as well.

Anway, this is it for now... over and out!

It's been some time since I last posted. Well, here's the first art of the new year then. This is a recent Wizard character I did for Wizards. It's for Dragon magazine's issue #383.


I've some more art piled up but I'll have to show them later on. Sorry...

Dragon 380 Cover, Warmachine Retribution and more

Hi All,

At last I'm posting some art :) Actually I have lots of stuff piled up but I'll post the rest in time. Here are some illustrations I did this summer:

This one is the cover of Dragon Magazine - Issue 380 for Wizards of the Coast. I had lots of fun doing it. Credit goes to Jon Schindehette for the Art direction.



Here's an interior for Dragon 379. It was for an article about assasins...


This illustration is for a Turkish web based game. I did the character concept as well. Can't say much yet but the project was really fun to work on...


and lastly a full page illustration I did for Privateer Press's Warmachine - Retribution book. This took ages to finish... oh well...


Ok, this is it for today. Hoping to post some more art soon! ;) So stay tuned!

Shunt photos

Here are a couple of photos from my digital painting demo at Shunt as I promised. It was a great experience and the place was awesome as well. But as you can see in the photos, it was very dark. The demo went just fine except the projector was a bit shitty, I had to paint in b&w.



Well, anyway... I'll post some new art soon. There are quite a bit piled up...

Ziya

Here's a new character I've been working on. Actually it was an old sketch but I just wanted to rework on it little bit and tighten it up. Here's the result. He's a Kulhanbeyi (Roughneck) from the last days of Ottoman Empire... I exagerated the proportions a bit and gave him some muscles. Hope you like it...
