In January 2011 i received a large on-going commission from deVoid Studios, i have now joined them and am producing concepts for their current video game 'DUSK' that is on track to be released later this year.

I am unable to share any information or artwork without written permission due to being under an NDA. Here is an image from the first batch of concepts that i am now allowed to show.

If you would like more information on deVoid Studios, aswell as some insight into the game that they are producing, please follow this link to their latest gamersbook.com interview: [link]

This is amazing!
I love how it's all dark, and then it's getting brighter, and feel just warmer.
very nice!

It keeps getting better and better.
I love the colours and contrasts on the left part of the artwork, and the almost undefined though sharpish shapes as it patters off into the distance. Great work!

ahh what can i say aboutthis one, man its got a lotta character, you really are getting a unique style with your use of texturing and lasso n light ambience etc. I really need to paly around with brushes n textures more, i have crap stockpile. Youve made the sattelie dish building really derelict and abandoned with all the jungle overgroth on it. Thena gai theres lights so some ppl must be home ^^

Thanks man, i really want to get better but i definitly feel i've hit a milestone in my art so far which is great.
I've still not really got a set workflow that i'm using right now tbh, i LOVE the lasso tool but i'm currently testing out new techniques and workflows - trying to encorporate the softbrush into my work at the moment also which i've always hated up until i viewed Darren Yeow's work (www.stylusmonkey.com), oh and he's got some great blog posts about working freelance and stuff like that if your interested.

Hehe it's meant to the the sunlight reflecting off of the glass, but it does look like lights :P

Ahh im gonna have to check this dude out :p You n me work the same way, we alwasy look at inspiring artists to base our work on. Gotta keep it ambitious, that milestone is definitely reached n surpassed with you man!

Oh a soft airbrush type yeh? yeah you should be able to do soem really good misty effect with those, they are tricky to use because they are so subtle enit, >.< but definitely will give another layer of atmosohere in those spooky areas :P

Yes spooky thats the word i get from your images, you got a really magical but spooky gloom to these new enviros, give a sense of mystery n adventure :p
Oh yeah ofc light reflection, doh :s I was wondering how did you make those winows, ive alwasy wondered how ppl make those precise squre window e
edges n stuff on buildings >.<

Hells yeh man, i always feel a bit out of place when all of these great artists are talking about 'the masters' n all of these old traditional painters, that are amazing, but i find it hard to get influenced by it. I find that the artists at Blizzard and the current industry artists are much more inspirational to me, but i guess that could just be times moving on. THough, i am currently really interested in the 'Hudson River School' artists, their environments - considering the time that they were painted, are really immense.

I've always been put off by the soft brushes as i find that they can really make an image look blurred, but from watching a couple of Darran Yeows paints he counter acts it by adding in a lot of hard edges and i think the balance really works, it gives a very focused look.

Thanks man, thats kind've the feeling the guys at deVoid are after, they wanted me to use films like Blade Runner and Fith Element for reference.

Urm, its pretty simple man, it's all about making your own brush for the situation. For this i made a rectangle shape, selected it and did Edt > Define Brush Preset, this adds that shape as a brush in your list. Then select that brushes properties and turn up the spacing so that when you paint a straight line they stamp how you want them. Then make a line using the brush, select that line and copy and paste until you have a nice square of these windows. Then using the transform tool distort the shape into perspective onto the surface you want the windows to be on. If that make sense :D

ahh nice one mate! it seems that you use custom brushes quite naturally, ive never made one before! an it zeem kidna easy now that u told me, ive alwasy wanted to check it out, and kinda looked before but it sems complex, when i see technical stuff i tend to run for cover lool. Imma defo try some of this out! :D

Me too man, ive always loved these new digital artist, thes guys are really moving things forward, taking art the direction we love, with technicality but new and different expressionism as opposed to the post modern art in fine arts or contemporary stuff which is really not m cup of tea, i tend to wana cuss those arts, but i know they put in ridiuclous time to make some of their unusual work so cant knock em for that.

But nah man the masters are awesome! i love renaissance painters n stuff, im not good with names as such, but i swear ive seen TONS of old school painters n painting n ben to many galleries on em, trust me when u see oil painting that are like 30x20 foot tall with intricate detailing and patterning its just mindblowing, and trust me one thing i feel bad about is that no matter how good you get at digital painting, going back to traditional is quite hard and the blending process etc, not being able to delete errors n stuff make it much more of a challenge. Though if you master traditional paintings digital art becomes a doddle, except the tools n stuff that is.

I know for a fact attemptin portraits and painting form live observation is ridiculousl harder than digital. That why u gotta give it up for not just the masters, but even those dudes who run them corner stalls sellin portraits painted 1 every hour or less that looks spitting image.. that is truly a lifetimes worth of skill.. Though digital has tons more options and you learn a lot faster, i always envy the awesome traditionalists.

Its their work that goes up in galleries straight up from their original paintings, not printouts we gotta do, n also their art ends up worth a lot more, originals can sell for bombshells of dough whilst prints of em can go for loads too.

I remmebr my A level painting i did which took me ages, its somewhere in my gallery the soldiers in desert war setting, this old woman came and valued it at 500 if i can finish it off and get it up in a gallery or something... now 4 years later my comission are worth $20 lool. Although i enver sold it, and i doubt that it will actually sell for 500 anway, thought the old bag sounded convincing she was somwhat an art connoisseur.

But yeah man, although i got admiraton for the traditionalists, i know my heat lies in concepts n digital artwork, so gotta keep it goin n hope for the best :d

I was in the same position man, always looked at custom brushes and thoguht it was too complex then never bothered, but recently i've really been into it - it's really easy to make some effective brushes once you do some tests.

I'm really bad at traditional painting, i think it's because i've never been that interested - i can really appreciate the talent that goes into them and the result is amazing, but i'm personally not that fond of alot of tradtional painting styles. As soon as i got my tablet and photoshop i was hooked. Theres loads of guys i know that started out traditionally and found it really easy to get into photoshop and they are really great.. but i find that they usually end up with similiar styles because of it. I'm trying to be as organic as i can and just try out all styles to see what suits me best and works - without restricting myself to one style. But saying that, i do really want to ttry and do some master studies when i get time, it would be great to try and replicate some of those painting digitally, and see what i can learn from it.

Yeeh man you can sell original paintings for crazy ammounts of money its unreal. But i agree i'd much rather be in a developement studio working with other creatives and working towards a bigger goal. Seeing your 2D concepts go through the stages of 3D and then eventually into a real-time game environment that people can play and enjoy... i imagine thats the best feeling ever, no ammount of money would make me wanna give that up. But that fact is, its friggen HARD to get in-house at a studio.. though thats not a reason to stop, just to work harder eh? :D

Yeah man i was the same exaclty, as soon as i got th tablet everything else was history, maybe its cos painting was tedious and photoshop was just too easy n fun to use :p

Definitly would rather be in a studio among peers, much better work atmosphere, i know i could talk all day long with those types of ppl as we do right now haha. It would be insane fun n ambitious n everthing i could want, and yeah like you said seeing the transition proces from 2d>3d>animation>gameplay>cinematics n stuff that would just be SWEEEEEET :D

But yeah gotta work harder man!!! I hope oneday we can both make it, it just seems like its too far atm >.< and imposible >>>>>>>.<<<

My main issue with traditional paints is the fuss of having to setup a workspace and then get your paints, mix everything and then waiting for it to dry and then having a big mess to clean up.... probably just being lazy but i love how i can just open photoshop and do a quick speedpaint if i want.

Hell yeh man, thats the goal! Working freelance at the moment has shown me that i'd likely prefer in-house... freelance is good but it's such a pain trying to communicate ideas via text and i'd much prefer the working environment.. and HAVING to get up and go somewhere to do it instead of being able to procrastinate all day. Ahh i don't think it's impossible man ;D It depends on where you got your sights set... working at a small-ish indie company is much more approachable, but you may not be able to use your full abilities as much and the pay isn't likely gonna be a fraction of the normal wages. But then if you wanna work for someone massive like Blizzard or Valve then thats when it gets harder, but the rewards are soo much better if you manage it ;)
