You know, some of that recent concept art may as well be related to P:E

Haha. Good *orlan* detective skills. Kaz joined full time at Obsidian last month. He is a frequent visitor to the forums so you may see him on here from time to time.

 

Wait, he?

 

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

 

Excuse me, have to correct some things.

The art there is very good. I like fantasy stuff and sketches too, color palette for all of them is great, and there is something classy and truly professional about it overall... http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-SwCLiasQHY8/UPHUkp7TqQI/AAAAAAAABDE/sN0VpEkYgi0/s1600/bighornSheep.jpg is that oil? In the age of tablets I can't distinguish one from digital art anymore.

 

I can confirm that none of that is PE related besides the Orlan Detective and Sagani.

Eh. Wizard's mansion is actually very cool...

Ah-HAH! He "can" confirm! He's a crafty one. He's not actually confirming it. He's simply allowing us to believe he did. I say that pink-haired soul weilding the sword is most definitely one of the main characters in P:E.

Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

Is he working with Polina as a concept artist or will we also directly see his work on PE ie portraits?

Good use of light and color, although his shadows seem subdued. Both his human and animal art are nicely proportioned. I think we can expect some very appealing character portraits from Mr. Kaz, if that is indeed his task. :)

Excellent.

Thanks for the detective work, C2B!

Yeah, good stuff. Is he on DA?

I sure as **** hope not. There should be an alternative with no furries or MSPaint sonic the hedgehog versions of X character from Y intellectual property, or MSPaint sonic the hedgehog Mary Sue versions of the "artist."

 

There's a now classic "game" in which you search for your own name, or the name of a favored fictional character or even real person of note with the suffix "the hedgehog." If you don't get any results, you win the game. If you do, you just get mad.

 

There are plenty of genuinely good artists on DA, like the woman who did those TF2 comics and having her fanart design of the Announcer become the official design, but for every one of those there are eight under-age/machild Sonic the Hedgehog fanatics/furry fetishists. Yes, the sonic freaks/furries are definitively deviants, but they're what makes the site a cesspit rather than a showcase for aspiring artists. I don't think any animation studios are really going to be impressed by a given individual's intimate knowledge of animal phalli and their ability to depict them in cartoon form.

 

If I were aspiring to a career as a professional artist (as in working for companies, not as in a professional artist who makes art which may be exhibited in galleries or museums and derive their income from sales of that artwork,) I wouldn't want to be linked to that site in any way. Just imagine the job interview.

If I were easily offended, I'd be offended right now. Instead I'm amused. I am a professional artist and I have a profile on DA, have had one for 9 years. I don't do Sonic porn. 

 

Thanks to DA, I actually didn't have to have a website made, they offer minimalistic functional portfolios for free and so far I have not had a problem with any of my clients. In fact, they seem to prefer my normal DA gallery over the portfolio for some reason.

 

Anyway, the community on DA is mostly very nice. Porn has its place just as "normal" art does, people are generally pretty civil and helpful.

Looking at the Gentlemens work i'm left wondering what his rendition of Sigil's Lady of Pain would look like, there seems an almost ethereal quality to his art that in my mind lends itself automatically to the Planescape ambience.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

Yes, I can see it now... "Well, Mr. Such-and-Such, we reviewed your portfolio on your DeviantArt profile, and it is top notch. Simply stunning! But, I'm afraid, since we decided to browse the entire site and found a lot of other disturbing artists and artwork that has absolutely nothing to do with either your artwork/skill OR this position in any way, shape, or fashion, we're going to have to deny you the job, u_u..."
