I visioned what it might look like leaving the pits/garage area of a particular track, set amongst a dense, dark, rainy city. I also imagined as a competitor bike comes from the left, a few red arrow holograms warn you of it coming. The orange ones would scroll across through the static turqoise arrows, all glinting and reflecting in the heavy rain.

Overall I'm happy with this one, the lighting I am super proud of, although it could use some more work. The atmostphere itself is heavy, and although I feel like it's not finished (a recurring theme with painting!) I think the mood is there. The bike is really off, and some of the angles are a bit eggy but I feel I gotta move on! I did learn a lot from this, and the last %20 of the time I spent on this (although it should have been done much earlier) was texturing. I followed a tutorial and I feel like I can now add SO much more feeling into a picture with a few, simple textures, so I really learnt a lot with this one!

Please zoom in if it seems too dark, I'll try to make my next picture a bit brighter

Also wanna take this time to say thanks for all the recent favs if you're reading this, especially you guys that comment. You mean a lot to me! Cheers
So I decided to finally share some of my (amateur) photographs on DA. They've been up on Instagram for a while now but I thought I'd add some colour to my DA gallery haha. They're by no means professional, I'm still acquiring photography equipment (about half of these photos are taken on my HTC phone camera) and learning a lot of things about this subject, so wish me luck!

Alright, i bought the tablet about a month ago and i still can't come to grips with it.
I'm finding it impossible to draw anything that doesn't look like a toddler has drawn it and i'm actually finding it really frustrating!
It's been sat on top of my PC unit for about a week now, it's starting to gather dust.

Actually...saying that. I could just have a bit of artists' block or something? I havn't even done a pencil drawing in quite a long time.

Well, time will tell.

what happened to that game you showed me months ago?

Hi, mate! On-hold really for now. Started a new job and moved house so not had a lot of time, slowly getting back into the swing of things though. Will keep you posted if anything new happens. ;)

Me and a couple of buddies are attending a game jam in London in September, 24 hours to create a game based on the theme they give us on the night, winners get a Vive headset each so just trying to brush-up on Unreal engine and Photoshop at the moment. Wish us luck! :D

I will wish you luck.
I started a new job recently, but I'm still stuck in the rip in time and space known as Indiana, the only place on Earth I know of where Limbo physically manifests.

Oh it does here too, mate! Maybe Indiana is the US' version of Swindon! (where I'm from obvs)
and thanks!
