Monster Approach by vshen Monster Approach by vshen
This is a personal piece that's done in Photoshop. It was a fun piece to do and I tried not to get carried away on refining it too much.

Hmm I like the texture on the person's armour than that of the monster's. It stands out more I think, maybe because of the lighting.

Dude, this is amazing. We should make a comic together.

Thanks for the kind words and your offer. Client work are keeping me very busy at the moment to fully commit to a comic project. I would definitely not reject the idea of it, so it's something to consider in the future. I can't say when at this point as the workload is pretty heavy and only allowing to squeeze in some of my personal projects I want to complete.
I wish you luck in your future projects and definitely keep in touch in Deviantart:)

I always wonder how people get their art to look so real. I usually reach a point where I just don't know what to paint

vshen Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
It gets like that sometimes where you just get a creative block. Try to sketch and paint real life studies, such as people, props, buiildings so you can understand the way light affects objects. It is a very valuable tool to progressing and it never stops.
This will help you in creating imaginary themes that doesn't exist in real life.
I still do it and trying to push myself to do it everyday on top of other client works.

it struck me odd that this piece is gritty. yet the monster is nt exactly scary but more suprsing. as in im more afriad of him hiting me or stepping on me then him. he seems like a big plant eaater that got startled. but i still like the pic.
