A dose of art from the world of film and games. An emphasis on Concept Art, Models and Visual Awesomeness.
A small city, just sittin’ there, tryin’ not to use too many polygons.
Duh Nuh DAAAAAA DUH DUN
World Machine. First finished landscape. Now with more nodes… I’ll definitely be working a bunch of recipes based on more actual photo ref. This is definitely a powerful little program for visualization
William Michael Kaluta’s Lord of the Rings Work. Amazing!
Jeff Simpson. A young guy from Canada recently featured in ImagineFX. Has a deviant art account, is 25. Amazing artist, this kid has the stuff.
Kent Williams. Another Artists Artist. A consummate draftsman and professional with equal credibility in the world of both fine art and graphic novels. He doesn’t put out a lot of stuff, but everything he puts his brush to tend to turn to gold.
So I’m taking a break from the world of 2D this Sunday and Diving head first into the world of Resin Kits. This is Maschinen Krueger and all of these pieces are culled from www.maschinenkrueger.com. It’s a pretty incredible site and the series of models are amazing. In their own words:
SF3D was a Sci Fi plastic model series which ran during the mid 1980s. The series was created by artist Kow Yokoyama with Kunitaka Imai and Hiroshi Ichimura. SF3D was introduced in the Hobby Japan Magazine as a special monthly installment of scratch built models. Nitto, a small Japanese company picked up the rights to make plastic kits of Kow’s designs. The models produced were very high quality with crisp molding, fine details and they included copper rod, brass tube, spring coils, and photo-etched parts. They were one of the first multimedia kits produced. The series ended after a few years. In 1998, the series was reintroduced by Nitto and Kow under the new name Maschinen Krieger Zbv 3000. Or simply MaK.
It’s time for a lesson in manliness with James Bama. Here’s his Doc Savage covers from the 60’s and 70’s. Really awesome stuff. A real lesson in just how much you can do with monotone palettes.
Tenjin Hidetaka. He got to paint mecha, all day. I really wish I knew more about this artist, but here’s what I’ve got.
Bruce Timm. Bruce has been the stylistic voice of DC Comics animation since the early 1990’s he wonderfully playful forms and instantly recognizable style have become a signature. A great comic artist and painter in his own right he’s really created a special place for himself in the hearts of fans.
Greg Staples. Greg was brought into the Magic stable of artists in the late 90’s with guys like Jim Murray and Kev Walker. Known largely for his Judge Dredd work he went on to become a top contributor to Magic the Gathering. In addition to his TCG duties he has also dabbled in video game art with stints for Blizzard entertainment.
SYD MEAD. Do I need to say anything else?
Bengus aka CRMK aka a million other names is another of Capcom’s old guard of artists. He’s worked on SF2, MvC, Powerstone and a horde of other games. A real genious on tablet, he’s one of my favorite artists in games.
