many have been curious about my work method.

well to fully grasp that i must first explain my personal origins
1 i was a traditional painter and drawer?...that doesnt sound right...
dragon mural by nebezial
same mural part 2 by nebezial
part 3 of the mural by nebezial
morning sketches 7 by nebezial
waiting for delivery sketches by nebezial
random cofee doodles by nebezial
underworld sketch for  my friend by nebezial
i had cofee today by nebezial
i do love villains by nebezial
ivy harley and catwoman by nebezial
batman catwoman by nebezial
batman huntress comission by nebezial

2 i was a traditional sculptor..alas photos of that stuff mostly got lost :(
so here is what i did in high school.... by nebezial


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
ravine- process shot for lynn's winter armor by nebezial
ravine- how dragons are made XD by nebezial
ravine hurricos forging by nebezial
RAVINE RANDOM 3D DRAGON by nebezial
gargoyles goliath 3d fun by nebezial

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
1 hour elf asassin chick making of video by nebezial
diablo ...ish barbarian +video...yeah by nebezial
catwoman +video by nebezial

aaand here is the link to my most important weapon developed about 10 years ago...by pure accident XD
blender brush by nebezial


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
old stuff 11 by nebezial
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?

old stuff 17 ravine first ever by nebezial

sliiight difference XD

also this was nebezial  in his first incarnation

old stuff 18 first nebezial by nebezial
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!

also , proper video tutorials coming soon... also  i'm green lantern!

So you're Batman and also Green Lantern.
NOW I understand it all... just one thing though... why do you use blender for? Just use your magic ring to make the models... Oh, that'ld be sooo awesome...

not blender the 3d program, blender the brush for blending colors in photoshop

Man, this is so inspiring to see. As an older in life noob to art, it's easy to get discouraged when I'm just finishing a pencil study only to see DA is so much digital art. Gives me hope that a latecomer can still turn into a decent artist! Thanks dude!

You didn't explain how blender was useful since your models seems to be done in zbrush...
I would never expected you used cs3 (i thought an highter version for the brush strokes that resemble a kind you can have with cs5), i would like to know the tabet you used to do the barbarian.

PS: i figured out how you do the ballons, is fucking funny!

blender is used to blend in areas that i dont feeel happy with and simply repaint what i need, also very useful when adding a new hard light layer to fix zbrush rendering mistakes and then i can blend in some nice gradients

just had no need for upgrades on ps, and after testingcs6 i realized i couldnt reproduce the brush there... well havent tried tfor that long so who knows XD

i work on a lenovo tablet pc currently thinkpad x220

My mistake, i thought you were talking about the software "blender" that actually is a freeware 3d modeling, and not the blender the ps's tool xD

I just looked at the specs of the pc, seems to be really good but i can't find how many pressure levels it has...

Hah I knew it, it was the green lantern ring all along! D:

On the other hand it would be pretty awesome to use the ring and your imagination to make stuff. You can just imagine all the ravine dragons fighting in the sky and then take a photo. Although they will be pretty green and you would have to paint over the photo for colors. XD Damnit I wish i had the ring :|

Kidding aside, really inspiring. I was really impressed by the fact that you actually dont use shortcuts in keyboard and still be that fast. Thats a lot of patience right there. Hard work and patience.Thank you. :)

awesomeness out of fundamentals mixed with experimenting and a bit of salt, pepper and crazyness... some other personalities... and maybe a ring, too

but yeah, 17 years of practice is alot... but i would like to know what your dream job was as you were a kid and did it changed? if yes then how often, did you got to where you wanted to?
