One of my most recent photoshop paintings as of opening this account. It is my modern reinvention of a classic 1950s monster movie which involves a US Naval expedition travelling to Antarctica where they discover a hidden jungle within containing dinosaurs and prehistoric life.
The film was quite notable for its somewhat laughable creature fx which included mechanical puppets and animatronics (some of the film's better FX were accomplished through these), real lizards standing in for Stegasaurus and an awful if somewhat charming man in suit T-rex (which was sadly also the film's main dinosaur)... Having studied SFX for 3 years I rather enjoyed it for nostalgic reasons although I can appreciate it may be somewhat lost on the average modern cinema goer.
Anyway, as for the painting, I managed to get all of the assets in that I wanted (the vintage helicopter, the T-rex and the heroes hanging from the winch line) however I do feel this was achieved at the cost of the composition. While painting it I tried to avoid one-click solution custom brushes and managed to for everything short of the shrubs and bushes.
This will become a running theme on this profile but virtually any sort of feedback, complimentary of critical is definately welcome on the grounds that it is at least constructive! If you see an issue with one of my pieces and have suggestions that will improve it I really do welcome it as it will help me become a better artist!
HOWEVER, as many people are aware, the internet is overloaded with morons who litter the web with their uninformed, rude and unprovoked nonsense. I will not engaged with anyone who leaves stupids comments, they will simply be removed on a zero tolerance basis!
