I like the rough yet precise feel about your pieces - the way you used that tool is really nice and I just like the glowing red eyes of the first one - nice work !

Welcome to the forum, Borilius.
I do like the way you've implied a surprising amount of detail in your paintings, with a few well-placed strokes of a chunky tool.

Hi Borilius, I like what I've seen of your work so far, your powerful use of colour and light work really well with your loose, energetic brush-strokes.

I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Wonderful! Agree with Andy it is amazing how you used the roller.
Fantastic style you have. These are very cool.

Hi Borilius.

I like your flat brush effect. I wanted to do that. Was that brush? What is the setting?

If you don't mind sharing that is.

I like these quite a bit. They somehow remind me of pixel art (the second one, anyway).

Rowena
11-06-2007, 08:01 PM
...just for in the meantime kamaldollar, I am certain Borilius was using the roller brush for these paintings.

Anyway, I was just going to compliment Borilius on his superb way using this roller brush :D . I like not only how it suggests detail but also how it manages to describe a lot of action going on, but just now frozen in a split-second of time for us to observe...

Borilius
11-06-2007, 09:14 PM
Thank you all, for the kind words and warm welcome :) Now to the brush - its Paint Roller with Pressure set to 0, Thinners set to 100 and Loading set to 10 /and its the only setting i change while painting/. Auto Clean is on. Thank you once again!

kamaldollah
11-06-2007, 09:32 PM
thanks everyone.

I've tried it. That's the effect I was looking for.

Rather new at this, so I was looking for a flat tip brush setting the whole time and ignored the roller.

I seen your work also on openCanvas forum... nice to see you here!

Borilius
11-07-2007, 04:53 AM
Hi uuderzo, nice to see you too :) The lack of textured brushes in openCanvas led me to ArtRage - a friend of mine introduced me to AR actually, and i really love it :)

D Akey

Nice. Has the feeling of marker comps on steroids. Good for quick presentation work.

Nice feeling of texture -- glass of the helmet.

Very professional works to me. Simple few strokes and the details are already show. I really like the last one with the glass. :)

Borilius
11-07-2007, 10:16 AM
Thank you for your comments and critics, D Akey and Pai! As my work is doing character concepts for games and sometimes time is critical, im looking exactly to this roughness of strokes, but feeling of finished work. I was working with Photoshop and openCanvas, but it was too much time consuming. ArtRage is exactly what i was looking for, taking in mind that i have much more experience with the traditional way of painting - it gives me what i want :)

Welcome, Borilius, we have every reason to welcome a concept artist here! It's already a fascinating spread from well seasoned traditional artists over well seasoned digital ones and a whole lot of aspiring geniuses of apperantly all ages, whereby I could be wrong there, haha.

Concept artists have the spontaneity and security to put down highly creative impulses fast and with great accuracy when it comes to lighting and atmosphere as well as shape and volume, I mean the outline and actual meet of the subject. While all of it is nothing but a coarse mess, the whole message comes through and that's something to learn from for everyone here!

Excellent, muhuhah...never mind! ;)

Welcome again!

Borilius
12-07-2007, 10:01 PM
Good morning everyone, here is a personal work i did these days, while resting from texturing. It was mostly an exercise with Artrage, painting different materials and light sources. Im totaly in love with it, taking in mind i have much more experience with traditional techniques, Artrage is like breath of fresh air after all the years with Photoshop.
There are ALOT of issues,i know, but i prefer moving on to the next one, than spending any more time on this. Any critics and comments are most welcome, thank you all, i hope you'll enjoy it!

Oooooooooooo. . . Nice!!!!!!

You not only have a good handle on metal and editing and design, you also can stylize all the elements in a picture to make it thoroughly consistent throughout -- as if we're looking through the same eye and mind that sees the world thus.

Example is that bird, with the arc of the wings and so forth, it looks perfectly consistent with the elegantly designed fighter figure. I would take this to mean that either the fighter is like a Ladyhawk, and turns into a hawk (only in the day?) kind of thing, or this bird is like her traveling companion, or she is like a hunting bird, or she is from the house that bears such a crest -- or something. They are cut from the same cloth so to speak.

I especially like how you manage to put in lots of detail but there is never a question as to the most important lines describing the body and the ones that define the most important compositional shapes, and the subdividing supportive ones that describe costume and embellishment.

It really holds it together perfectly and with a genuine design sensibility.

Brilliant. . . again.

Keep going!!! You're world class, my friend.

In fairness, it's not mine to ask for it.

Actually, they use an 'e' on the end.

Regardless, I think titles may be open to anyone to borrow/use. The worst that can happen is perhaps confusion. Quote the title, but don't quote me on that point of law, because I don't know, I'm afraid. :lol:

I LOVE IT!! hahaha. Really clever stylization/caricature of one look for the shady gangster from the 1920's who happens to be a demon and I love the hook - possibly related to the good Captain Hook -- the relative who went to America. I would bet he even wears spats.

What a voice you manage to get into you paintings. German on the wall, huh? Is this a WWII theme you have going?

These fighters you portray are TOUGH looking on both sides. Lethal strength and harsh endurance are the featured qualities that come forward for me -- farm boys who would probably love to be elsewhere.

Very skilled work.

Bravo.

D Akey
03-28-2008, 06:53 AM
I would definitely not look at this guy and think he was clever and someone who would go somewhere despite the danger of losing.

This is the body of someone who uses strength to solve his problems and would be hard to see him as concerned for his safety. He has one gear, and that is "Charge!" BLAM! WHALLOP!

So the courage level and the rising to overcome insurmountable obstacles is not apparent in his visual presence. Jones was a sort of everyman. This guy is the Hulk.

That's only a comment on the editorial impact for the character's appearance. Editors and people who hire artists cross the line sometimes between staying close to the original and taking a franchise into a new market -- comic books in this case, I would guess.

The drawing is polished as usual. You are very skilled. I would hire you in a second were I in need of artists. Obviously you work steady.

Agree with the others.

This is amazing. What a wonderful design. It even has a graphic motif of curves, based on the tentacles, I guess, which sort of take the edge off this bristly character. Suggests in him some dimension and character.

Brilliant work. And thanks for showing your process.

D Akey

Even Frazetta took license with placement and proportions. The Scandinavian warrior two back has some issues.

Your mark making is fantastic, and the shapes are great -- all very convincing. The width of his raised arm is huge relative to his other arm. And his shoulder seems low.

I understand you want to feature his strong jaw by giving it some space around it. But it seems off a bit.

Anyway, for someone with your talent, I figure it was a matter of choice. But if these characters are simply ideas that are going to be refined later, then it's not an issue. The impact will be strong.

The second character page is perfect.

Great additions. Always a pleasure to see some of your work. I think you grabbed the essence of Mal Reynolds very well. He looks a bit more strong and hard in his face, but that is caused by the hard shading of his face I think. Was a great series and it's a shame it has no end.

Squidface also has a great shading and a convincing line-art.

Despite that, really good sketches, looking forward seeing them in a finished colored version. Really outstanding work borillius.

The might makes right concept. Personal power wins in these universes.

Some day you should visit the Armory museum in Paris. The war craft there, much of which is ceremonial, is down right surreal. Some are like bizarre mechanical prosthetics, maniacal swiss army knife style inventive gadgets for eviscerating a foe on the field of battle, hoisting his lifeless carcass on a petard and prying open a champagne cork to celebrate, all with one device. Holds great energy for the aristocratic fellows with lots of pomp, fantasy and money.

hello Borilius, seen all of your works. I am not in a position to actually comment on your works, Its just that I am not capable of doing so. Yet mots of the amazing works ever seen by me, really nice.. :)

I also want to work as a concept artist, can you plz help me about how to go about it, I know this is not a place for that, but still, You can leave me a msg, or you can mail me at [email protected] Any help is greatly appriciated..:D:D:D

Fan-f**king-tastic...sorry about that, it's just difficult to find something to say about your work that hasn't already been said.
I love it, wicked style. Just as i was looking through the thread I was thinking that i'd love to see the stages of your work and there it was with the "Arnie meets croc dundee" fella, nice one.
There are so many amazing and varied artists on this forum but i have to admit that the comic\graphic novel styled art is what floats my boat, i'm sailing now:D

First time seeing this thread, but your paintings are wonderful. I love the chunky roller brush style. It seems to be one of your favorite tools, and I rarely use the thing. I think I might try it more often. I have to say that as one of the brown coats, I did recognize your captain from Firefly. Great fan of that show! Too bad it didn't last longer.

Borilius
08-07-2009, 08:55 PM
Thank you guys for the good words!
@SCP: Yeah, i haven't updated my thread here for a while. I'm using AR mostly for my personal works and sketches - at work its Corel Painter. I just hope with the new release of Artrage 3, there will be some improvements, so i can fully move to AR at work. IMO its the best traditional media simulation, hands down - it just needs few more tweaks here and there to make it perfect.

Your works show true talent! As far as AR is concerned, You will probably find it as flexible and useful as I do. I have completely stopped using my used-to-be fave (Corel Painter).

Borilius
04-29-2010, 07:21 AM
Thank you, sir! Artrage is awesome, i'm trying to move away from Painter recently - it just doesn't serve my needs anymore, while Artrage fits perfectly :)

Borilius,
Through your art I can feel, yes feel the drama, the energy, the agony
and strength of this warrior. Tension and intrigue hangs heavy in the
air, ill winds blow incessantly, his face expresses the traumatic threat.
His mighty sword wields the defense as it gleams it's majestic power in
battle ready confidence. What a most amazingly captivating and gripping
work of art! Wow, sincerely ... WOW! :)

Borilius
10-12-2010, 07:38 PM
Thank you!
Here is a quickie one, took me like 30 minutes- 1 hour to finish it. This time i used "Real Color Blending" option in AR3 and i love it. Feels much more natural when working with oils.

Borilius,
I agree, just love this piece also. The deep, rich intensity of both
artwork and palette exudes searing emotion, strength and fortitude
in this face ... a face that cannot be either ignored ... nor forgotten.
His very presence speaks a thousand words. Most excellent! :)
