I'm amazed by this quality of work.

I dunno. The brush strokes kinda [i]create[/i] the mood. I agree I don't really appreciate it as much in static images but I feel this artstyle works for creating a sense of motion and haste.
[QUOTE=johan_sm;27432830]I hate these kind of images. It's like the artist was really lazy and didn't finish them. The brush strokes are so obvious it ruins the mood.[/QUOTE] That's the point, it's conveying the image in the style of proper painting: convey the point across with colour. It requires the most skill to be successful at it. It has so much freshness and energy in it. AS a beginner painter I am fascinated about the sophistication of these.
hey dickshits its called speed painting
[QUOTE=onox37;27440505]hey dickshits its called speed painting[/QUOTE] Not necessarily. Everything is relative. Some people's entire portfolios are comprised entirely of stuff in this style. It would take me a shit load of time to replicate this style, probably as long as it takes me to do realistic rendering from reference.

The brush strokes are so obvious it ruins the mood.[/QUOTE] Since you do 3d you should know that's what environment concept art will nearly always look like. They're not supposed to fully flesh it out. They're supposed to create mood and stylistic direction and the images clearly succeeded at that.

There's a really awesome Japanese photographer that takes pictures of female models and such... The thing is, he basically asks them "How do you want to die?.." They tell him, and then he takes pictures of them like that... But I cant remember the name, can anybody help me? :) Apart from that, Salvador Dali is the shit. This is the crazy bastard. [img]http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/ob/dali/DaliMustache.jpg[/img] Famous for such pictures as; [img]http://emptyeasel.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/03/thepersistenceofmemorybysalvadordali.jpg[/img] I dont really have any favorites because they're all so good in their own way, but I'll pick out a few good ones.

Giger If you dont know him, you'll recognize his work as he created Alien and a few other things.

Dali is "Dicks, dicks everywhere" and I never liked giger.
[QUOTE=3v3ryb0dy;27451081]Dali is "Dicks, dicks everywhere" and I never liked giger.[/QUOTE] fffffuckin' heresy
What can I do, his work is very impressive, especially his litographical stuff but I don't like it. Beksinski is for me.

Superheroes! Lens Flare edition!
Needs more bokeh and DoF :pcgaming: But seriously, they're great, but I don't really like that texture he used. It's not like posters are made of fucking carbon fiber or something :argh:
I'd way prefer to see just the cartoon drawings without all that overlaid crap. [editline]17th January 2011[/editline] Looks like posters made of paper-thin denim.
some pretty crazy animation work, don't have to be a flowerchild to appreciate it [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhheiPTdZCw&feature=player_embedded#![/media]
That was trippy
[QUOTE=3v3ryb0dy;27477604]Superheroes! Lens Flare edition![/QUOTE] now that u pointed it out it's all i see aaa get rid of them theyre RUINING IT that and the dirty poster paper texture is a little too strong [editline]20th January 2011[/editline] and its too dark at the bottom that was a bad choice [editline]20th January 2011[/editline] that guy needs 2 wise up

Was always fascinated by "The persistence of memory", and when I looked up more of his works, I was just blown away. His stuff is so crazy yet so detailed, it leaves me speechless. A week ago I saw one of his works in real life, "The Pharmacist of Ampurdan in Search of Absolutely Nothing" (you just gotta love the titles). It's incredible small, but if you'd stand a foot away, it looked like a photography on some parts. Truly amazing. I really like photographies by Jeff Wall.

damn it, those are photos!
[QUOTE=Maya2008;27534220]damn it, those are photos![/QUOTE] Lol, he only paints directly from life. He despises using photos as reference. [editline]20th January 2011[/editline] Also he hates it when people say his stuff looks like photos. But I understand what you mean, his stuff is amazing, probably one of the very best realist artists working right now.
