Prints and small update

General / 01 September 2019

Hi! It's been a long time since I posted a blog entry here on ArtStation (I also didn't renew my Pro membership - which didn't help with posting these), so, since I have a few updates, I decided to finally make one. 


This year has been a bit of an emotional and professional roller coaster for me. I quit my day job in January and went through a bit of a burnout period; I started freelancing mostly at a part-time capacity for indie games and small illustration gigs; I started learning Blender and 3D Animation on Blender and created two different personal projects (Project X-37 and a TBA RPG project) to push my portfolio a bit further towards a more Concept Art/Design direction, which is my main goal as an artist.

It has been a heck of a ride so far and hopefully I'll be able to show a lot of my work soon. Most of it hasn't been announced or even released to the public, so I can't show it yet - which is unfortunate, as I'm really excited about it -, but hopefully that will change soon!

I also started selling some prints and posters of these pieces (above). Check out the prints here:

Have a great Sunday and an awesome week!

Almost there!

I finally got around to pick this artwork again.
I have to be honest, this final phase was a bit more loose, which was something I was not expecting on going. I wanted something almost Matte Painting, but I’ve been focusing my portfolio on the pre-production phase, so I actually wanted to speed it up a bit. 

I've recently made a big decision in my career. A lot of people been telling me it is too risky and what not, but I'm going all-in on getting myself into the AAA Industry. This next year is definitely going to be a hard working year pushing myself more than ever so I really don't want to waste more time than I need or should to. I might still add some details and more props - ships, textures, maybe... not sure. If you have any suggestions, please leave me your comment! For now, I'll leave you this close to finish.

Have a good one!

ArtStation Challenge Withdrawl

General / 10 October 2018

It's unfortunate, but due to a series of events I've decided to withdraw from the current Challenge.
I started working on it before going THU and was really hoping to be able to finish it after it, but unfortunately, after I came back from the event I found out I had to be away from my workstation for about a week. Then I started Inktober to take a bit of an advantage, but yeah... Things sort of dragged out and now, 5 days in and all I got is a bunch of sketches...
Since I work full-time and I'm having way too much with Inktober - I really don't want to stop -, I decided to withdraw from the Challenge instead.

It's a bit of a shame, but no harm done. Still working on my stuff and that's what matters!
At 31st October, I'll make a selection of the Best Of Inktober 2018. Until then, I'll be scribbling and posting on instagram!

I really do want to finish another ArtStation Challenge though. Does anyone know when the next will be? February? March?


PS. Last post I promised more progress on that Cyberpunk City. That promise is not broken entirely! Will start it again soon.


Have a good one!

First post with a sneak peak!

Making Of / 05 September 2018

Hi guys! I bought a Pro membership a while ago, but I haven't really been taking advantage of it that much. Going to try and change that just a bit with a few posts these next few days.

About a month ago I was messing around a lot with 3DS Max and ended up starting a small project. I love sci-fi so, of course it would have to be something along those lines.

I came up with this simple block-in:


I started editing this almost instantly after the initial render, but for various reasons I started messing around with other stuff a while after... Now, since I got the last minute chance to go to THU (F yeaah!) I got motivated to push myself again with this one.

Here's the current version:



  A lot of work still to be done, but I can see the potential. I hope I won't mess it up eheh ^^"

Let me know what you think if you have any feedback!
