First landscape after some time. I love cities built into asteroids. I hope some day we will build one. Until then I’ll just paint them!

This is a concept I realized for a cyber-techno-punk story, where mankind relies heavily on technological implants to evolve. Nothing previously unheard of, but I liked the Giger-ish atmosphere.

Some new paintings

Hi everyone! Hope you’re all well. Personally, I got the flu so I could stay way better but I won’t complain! During winter vacations I’ve neglected the site mainly because where I usually go there’s no internet connection and so I have to rely heavily on my phone, which is why I couldn’t upload new paintings for a while.

But now I’m back! And I’ve brought a whole lot of new works with me. This one won’t be the usual post centered on one painting only. Instead I will batch all of them in one post.

I’m personally very happy with the look of some of them and I’d really love to hear a word from you! Which one do you prefer? I’ve chosen Majestic Universe to represent the post because it has received very good praising on social media, but I hope you’ll like the others as well.

Till next time!

 

Ancient World

I made this painting using mainly the mixer brush and the mixer brush sets I bought from Eldar Zakirov on Cubebrush. It’s an amazing set, the perfect one to create that amazing feeling of traditional oil painting. This is my first attempt using them and I can say that I’m still far from using them properly, but I already like the result. In time I hope to get better.

If you’re into digital painting or 3D sculpting take a look to Cubebrush website and browse its amazing content, you won’t be disappointed.

As usual if you want to look at the details, check the full size image in the Landscapes page! Thank you all!

The Monolith

It’s been a while since I last made a landscape and it was high time I did it. I love to depict lone travellers in huge sceneries, like this one. In this world some ancient civilization managed to harness the power of a whole planet connecting it to a giant monolith. I love the surreal effect it gives. Hope you like it too.

Scorpio Duelist

This is my new work, Scorpio Duelist. This was one of the main characters of a novel I wrote when I was a high school student. It was meant to be male, to be honest, but I decided to change it and I must say I like this female version. I tried many times to draw or paint this particular character over the years, but I was never satisfied of the result. Now I finally made a version I like and I can rest easy. For now, at least!

Well, if you want to let me know what do you think of it, feel free to drop a couple lines in the comments below. Have a great day wherever you are!
