Snatch by OmeN2501 Snatch by OmeN2501
Picture made for ImagineFX magazine workshop, issue #34 about painting SciFi Images. Whole tutorial is about how to put story together and how to execute it properly. With screenshots from production and few useful tips :] Hope you gonna like it

Image was done by hand in Photoshop, few references used but nothing significant. Inspired heavy by awesomeness that is Mass Effect

Crits and comments always welcome

I like the fisheye-like perspective, makes it stand out from the crowd. The dazzling glow from the sun (or explosion?) feels very real. Great stuff.

Amazing.. can't stop looking at it!

Really great image, also. With the soldier running off carrying the alien/enhanced human in the midst of battle, it has a very strong emotional pull. Very profoundly executed in your work.

Fav'd, as you should know.

Hahaha, I had deviantart open while reading a sci-fi painting guidebook imagineFX wrote. I saw this picture then looked up at my screen and it just so happened to be in there amongst the pictures on the page I was on :P

This is one of my favorite paintings of the past decade. I'm not exaggerating. I use it as the "final exam" and as an example of "Mastery Of The Craft" for every one of my Composition and Color Theory students. It is simply awe-inspiring and I am usually very critical about current digital work. Thank you for elevating the medium of digital art. Your work has truly enriched my life and the lives of my students.

Welcome to the world of Forsaken.

You are an out-cast Master Samurai with exceptional skill. Born to be the Leader of a destroyed Empire, but Exiled by the Supreme Guardians of the Emperors Shine for Misconduct. You alone have traveled the devastated lands in search of rest and peace, but to no avail you have fallen to wayside as fate pulls you back into the very world you are trying to escape from. Armed with just a Katana, Kage (You) Must fight your way back into Honor and relinquish the title " Forsaken. "

Hello, My name is Malykai and I notice your Forum comments and I am making a game (already in-progress) and I think you would be a great addition to it. It is Open Concept game, meaning you are able to add you input and ideas into the game to shape its outcome. So the GDD I have but will change as we Create more and more. I am a 3D Modeler/ Animator/2d Concept Artist/Sound Engineer. I want this Team to be full of Newbies so that the hunger to create drives us. The Style and format of the game is hack and slash adventure (third person.) With this project the goal is to get a finished title under your belt and from there you can branch out and with your new experience build a bigger and better game. Thanks for your interest in the project
Now this is where you come in. We need artist (which I myself am also one) to help us realize this Vision which is already in progress. We need concepts including environment pieces Character works and the two combined.Also if you posess the skill to do 2D maps that's a plus but not mandatory. If you feel like this is a fit for you and have been wanting to add more to your portfolio, and work with other exceptional artist then this is the place. For compensation we will be splitting Royalties if we go for funding, but as of right now it is a non-paid project in which you can add that you have " Worked on game." to your portfolio.(Why not right?)
Deviantart thanks to you. you've been a great asset helping us move forward. I just wanted to let everyone know that we are moving into getting the animation pipeline rolling for the Main characters and Enemies and setting up a small prototype to work out all the kinks before we move on.
