Concept Art Progress – Finished Piece

Great concept! by Zfresh

Zachary Child


Today I finally finished this piece of concept art that I have been working on for the last week or so. I wanted to challenge myself by painting something from my imagination. Concept artists work in a similar way as the environments they create are mostly made from their imagination.

I am very happy with this piece. The reason for this is because I have always been very intimidated by painting straight from my imagination without using any real sources of inspiration. However, I pushed myself past this hesitance I managed to produce a piece that I am rather proud of.

This piece is now more or less finished. At some point I may come back to it and add some more detail and perhaps something positioned on the pile of bones.

Cave painting (Finished Version)

Great use of Photoshop painting. The use of colours is phenomenal.

I have finally got round to finishing my cave painting. For this piece I wanted to paint a landscape with depth and quite intense lighting. I also wanted to use quite abstract and emphasised colours. Therefore I decided to paint a cave at night. I chose to use indigos, purples and blues to give the impression of night time and to give the piece an eye catching appearance.

I created depth by focusing on lighting and shadows. I decided to add the moon into the piece to provide a natural source of light. I emphasised the beams of light coming from the moon to give the painting a rather fantastical appearance.

Over all I am pleased with the final version of this painting. However, any feedback would be great!

Batman v Superman Fan Photoshop Art

good inspiration.

-Disclaimer- The characters portrayed in this piece are the rightful property of DC Comics and Warner Brothers. It will not be sold – it has simply been created for my portfolio.

This is my photoshop fan art for the new Batman v Superman movie coming out. I created this by photoshop images together and painting lighting / shadows over the top. In order to make this I had to heavily photoshop Superman’s face and reconstruct it using the paintbrush tool. I wanted to create a piece that reflects the tension between both both characters, hence the reason I gave them glowing eyes.

The photos I used to create this piece can be seen below:
