Hello everyone,
After a pretty long gap, im here to share few of my paintings I did recently plus some old work.
These are majorly done in Artrage (esp. the basic layout and initial start) with a touch in Photoshop and Painter and few are all in all Artrage pieces. Tablet used.
Please keep visiting as Ill be using this very thread for all of them and will be adding more.

Thanks you..:).

Dear Waheed, as always I'm in awe in front of Your top class mastery and art! I'll be regularly attending this window on Your marvellous universe of paintings for sure, you can bet on it! Thank You for sharing these wonders and being a reference i may set as a goal to eventually achieve ... in not less than a century, maybe, even with a tutorial by You. ;):oLOL

Thank you lunchbagart, Caesar and Jean..:).

Dear Caesar, thats a huge compliment my friend ! Your work is equally good (and even better in some cases), its just the style that is different and thats the whole charm in art. infact, I can say this for all the people here, all are good in their own style.

There is just one thing that I would really like to add here, are about couple of basic elements, that one should take care of. I do that myself, the rest works well on its own afterwards. Its the Composition (the arrangement of elements in a painting in the initial layout), the color scheme and the light. Thats it. These are the points if taken care of, adds a lot to the work. And to be honest, I can see that most of the artists here know about these and handle that well..:).

Let me share few softer ones I did.

Wonderful. You've gotten more subtle in certain subjects. I loved the old style and I love the new. Great atmosphere and lighting as ever. Go Waheed!

Funny that you would put in another parrot here as you re-enter the forums. I recall that an earlier parrot you did is what caught my eye to even look at ArtRage in the first place as I was surfing the net back in 2006. I like this one too. This one feels more like a pet and less of a bright jungle display. (This is a parrot, right? Or parakeet? Wish I knew breeds of birds better so I could be sure about my comments. I do, however, know painting, and these are wonderful.)

Beautiful paintings - did you use the palette knife on the mountains - I can't seem to get it to work like that. As Caesar hinted:) tutorials/hints will be most welcome. I see you already started that with the colour/composition/light, comment.

Mr. Akey - looks like a budgerigar (budgie) to me - native to Oz.:)

Dear Waheed, what You say is sheer wisdom and the essence of visual art, so we should stick Your words in front of us anytime we start a painting, illustration, take a shot with the camera etc. What You share is true art and what You show is the modesty and simplicity of a real master. Thank You and congratulations again! Also these new entries of Yours have a sublime touch and explain as clearly as Your words what You say.

Thanks very much everyone ! Marilyn Anne, D Akey, justjean, Victor, Alexandra, eighty+, Enug, and Caesar.

Its always a great pleasure for me to share my work with all of you..:).

D Akey, thanks and you got that very right. its a pet, I got few with me along with little birds, finches. The one that i painted is a small Australian parrot, Parakeet, Budgerigar, or Budgie (as Enug mentioned), all are very close in their appearance and there is another one called RedEye.

eighty+, sure, please go ahead, you can always do that.

Enug, yes, I do use palette knife a lot, along with basic oil brush and on mountains I do that often. Im sorry I didnt make any new tutorial but I did share couple of them here some time ago, if you have missed them, here are the links:

Waheed, so good to see new works from you , and fun to see that even as a working professional you still find time for your own work. All of them have a charming and very personal quality that is very moving in an age of massive image making, for gaming, movies, illustrations... just my personal take on things of course.:):):):)

Thank you so much Waheed for the links to your tutorials - I have watched both with interest and also listened to 'Dark Eyes' - beautiful.

Thank you gxhpainter and Enug..:).

few more:

Wow. I must say, they're all very good, though I must say that snow scene is really great. You've got quite an interesting job that takes you through some dark rather cinematic themes. Did they ever finish that movie you were working on last time you were hanging out here?

They've got to be glad to have you to help them collect their visions into something more solid than words. I'm sure it's something of a rush for them to hand you an assignment and to then see it at this stage. Makes them look intelligent and artistic too no doubt.

All are great but love that snow scene, it really shows the cold, feeling of solitude and strength of a lovely winter day

Now off to look at your tutorials , thank you :)

Caesar

They're all amazing again! What a contrast between the mountain wood with snow and the urban industrial view with smog! A most quiet and a most dramatic one together ... You're a visual poet of vast emotional landscapes of any kind. Technique and art match perfectly in Your works.

Ostogar, D Akey, Jean and Caesar, thank you very much...:).

D Akey, yes the movie is even released and doing good. I assume I mentioned about the movie im takling about, cause I worked on more than one. I art directed the visual effects in that and did most of the 2d stuff, movie's name is "Big Ass Spider" (initially called Mega Spider) and it has been screened at a lot of venues in USA, esp LA and even got couple of quite prestigious awards on its visual effects work. Im on a break these days, as there are things I have to handle and even busy at home, doing free lance work these days, whenever possible.

I have quite a few more paintings to share, that i selected for this thread, so here are few more:

Thanks..:).

D Akey

Wonderful. Really love the lava one especially but they're all very cool.

Interesting, I looked at the Wiki on Big Ass Spider and since it took place in LA that maybe you are at SMC after all. Heh.

Anyway, glad to hear you're so busy. You certainly deserve it.

Enug

I think they are all amazing but being a romantic I'm drawn to the 'Forest stream'.

What wonderful work, Waheed. Again, I look forward to the incredible views.

Caesar

They're all awfully good and different from each other, apart Your unmistakable style, dear Waheed! I start to feel also scared by the thought that it takes to You very little time to get one of these stunning artpieces, considering the sheer flow of marvels You are sharing in few days!:eek::cool::):):):):)
OK, I may stand up again now! I hope that five minute bowing may have expressed all my respect for Your incredible production of artworks. LOL;):o:D:D:D:D

Alexandra, Caesar, coops and D Akey...Thank you very much !

Caesar...hehehe, no need my friend. Thanks.

D Akey...lol...I like that "Go Waheed Go"...hehehe...im sure you know the actual, original slogan that is all around these days. :D

Cheers.

D Akey...lol...I like that "Go Waheed Go"...hehehe...im sure you know the actual, original slogan that is all around these days. :D

There's an original slogan? All I know is the one I stole stole from very early rock n' roll and the bee-bopping beatniks (maybe even earlier with jitterbug dancing) which is "Go man go" or "Go cat go", with 'cat' being a variation of 'hep cat' which is a great compliment for a musician or anyone who is 'with it' or who knows or has been initiated into the real creative stuff. :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

You would say "Go cat go" or Go man go" to a musician pulling a super fiery solo that is fast and perfect and in that musical consciousness where they're almost possessed by that creative stuff that's in a realm beyond the average person. :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

I'm almost afraid to ask what the saying has been turned into these days. I've been saying it for years. :eek::D:rolleyes::p:eek:

D Akey...I know what you mean and thats right. hehehe...That was from way back. But these days its there all over even outside my country and that too for a very different reason....A strong political reason and so I dont want to spoil this thread with it. So ill inbox/message you for more...:).

Thank you copespeak..:).

Be well.

You have some excellent cityscapes and landscapes here. Notice in all the landscapes you have on this forum thread there is a distinctive characteristic of the background hills and mountains sloping on the horizon towards the center of the images.
Creates a focal point that leads the viewer towards the center of the artwork, in combination with good object balance on both sides of the focal point.
