3D Environment City - Street View by LongJh
3D Environment City - Street View
Hey all, it's been awhile since my last 3D piece, so here is my attempt at creating a full 3D environment! (As you can probably tell from my gallery, I really like backgrounds and environments) The whole scene took about a month to build from planning to concept to modelling, texturing and final renders. It was actually really fun (and also occasionally frustrating) to go through a whole process from coming up the concept to building the complete scene. I was kind of fumbling about in the beginning (due to my rusty 3D skills) but I think it turned out okay! I actually think that all that 2D drawing practice really helped out my 3D skills in some way as well.

Thanks for taking a look!

Lava Titan by LongJh
Lava Titan
Hey all! Here's a new piece - gonna take a quick step back from environments and try doing a more action-based scene.

I was scrolling through some epic music videos in youtube when I chanced upon one that featured an image of a lone knight facing a huge-ass monster in the distance. Something about that picture plus the music in the background really made me want to paint something similar. I decided to give the painting more of a lava, or fire, inspired theme, since I haven't done much of those before. Plus, I got to play around with more "VFX" elements (similar to my Godzilla piece) such as flying embers falling flaming rock chunks - you know, just the regular stuff that happens around you as you face off with a giant, re-animated being encased in armor emerging from the depths of an erupting volcano.

The process of this painting was also pretty quick (for me, at least) - I started of with a rough sketch before working with layers. Something new I did in this piece was creating a "lighting plan" before I started - meaning I actually decided where the light sources (such as key light, bounce light, rim lights) were coming from before actually starting to render (something which I was always to lazy to do in the past). That, coupled along with some careful layer management made this painting progress a lot quicker than usual.

I hope you guys enjoyed looking at this piece as much as I did painting it - thanks for looking!

The Dark Citadel by LongJh
The Dark Citadel
Another photobash heavy concept painting (a castle, as usual haha. I really have to start doing more different stuff). Something with a more dark and mysterious sort of mood this time. As for the painting process, this one went went by pretty smoothly - probably due to the fact that I abused heavy shadowing and fogginess I used to "hide" details, so I didn't have to spend a ton of time rendering every part of the image. But all in all, really fun painting for me!

Inspired by the background environments in Dark Souls! The mood they have in the game is just phenomenal.

Thanks for looking!

Wait - What Era is this? by LongJh
Wait - What Era is this?
A sort of matte painting, photobash experiment I did a couple of months ago. I wanted to practice working with textures more to create more photorealistic looks. I started with a thumbnail sketch and basically added bits and pieces of textures and parts from different photographs and trying to blend them all into cohesive image.

Of course, after working on the painting so long I didn't even realise the fact that the whole time period of the image probably doesn't make any sense. I didn't even realise it until I was done lol. Should probably pay more attention to stuff like this in the future next time.

Oh well, it's kind of a waste not to post it up though (I kinda spent a lot of time on this ._.) - thanks for looking!

Hey guys, got a really neat surprise a couple of days ago: one of my works (Guardian's Crusade - The World) managed to get a Daily Deviation! I didn't even notice until I realized I had like 2000 message stacks (2000 is pretty big for me, usually I get like oh, 15?).  Huge thanks to Ginryuzaki for suggesting it and Thiefoworld for featuring it, also shoutout and BIG thanks to all my new watchers and those who faved my works recently, I really appreciate it! I'll keep doing my best and keep improving at this art stuff, I promise!

I also just finished a piece for the Lightning Returns contest recently. Crazy rushed amidst a bunch of work I've been getting recently (extremely grateful for those) and I kind of strained my arm a little in the process, soo I'll be taking it easy on the drawing for awhile. So to all you guys out there using the computer and wacom, drawing and painting for hours on end, remember to take care of yourselves. Nothing's worse than not being able to work cuz your wrist and shoulder's all sprained up.
