well to fully grasp that i must first explain my personal origins
1 i was a traditional painter and drawer?...that doesnt sound right...
2 i was a traditional sculptor..alas photos of that stuff mostly got lost
i practiced abour 17 yeears now to get this bunch of mostly self taught techniques to work
most of my stuff is a digital painting now, made or drawn in photoshop cs3. never switched higher as cs3 satisfied all my photoshoppin needs
i used to do quite a bit of modelling in 3d studio max, but it was too technical of a program so eventually i gave it up and completely switched to zbrush as it provided me with excellent set of organinc modelling and texturing tools
aand some of that
my skills are practice based. they have improved over time, i was not born with them, they will keep improving with hard work and perseverance
now, for the curious ones who still havent seen these
these pics feature video links to real time making of
aaand here is the link to my most important weapon developed about 10 years ago...by pure accident XD
my workflow nowadays mostly consists of mixing 3d models i make in zbrush, mostly of dragons, monsters armors, immovable stuff , and painting, but it all depends on my mood as there is also the fact that i like switching styles around
aaand i have done quite a few of those XD
yes..even manga back in the day
and btw, just if you are curious... you wanna know what the veery first page of ravine looked like 11 years ago?

motherfucker was all no nose before voldy made it popular XD....tho honestly, he was very much inspired by general thade from tim burtons planed of the apes.. bad movie, magnificent villain!
albert einstein defined madness as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results...
i call that practice, and it does make a world of difference!
