Love the light! Wow got lotsa atmosphere...what do u create your work in? Is it a mix of traditional/digital? Lovely stuff!

GhettoFab said...

Hey Ryan, very nice robotic beast!
I like the watery, rusty light.
I made some robots and creatures
on figurenbrut.blogspot.com,
be my guest. The other avalanche
robots are also great. Robots just seem to ask for being printed on with numbers and letters.
See You soon, all the best,

Marco

This is awesome, Ryan... beyond my ability to explain in words. I wish I had more vocabulary at my disposal, but as things stand:

Real good.

Katy Hargrove said...

I heart your art. :)

ian said...

my goal is to paint like you. Man, amazing stuff.

Grassman said...

Damnet I wish people like you would drop the stupid digital crap and paint for a living. your to good to be doing digital.

do you ever do oils?


I love the muted colors.

I hate that there isn't any strong reflected blue light on the left arm that would bring the composition back in for a visual return.

I hate the fact that there is absolutely no three dimensional textural value because your working on a computer but whatever.

I would also recomend putting darker blacks in the shadows. to strong of an enphasis on the blue lights.

anyway, not bad overall and I love your style, just calling it as it is.

pick up a freaken paintbrush

marcobucci said...

great stuff Ryan. Love your lighting and colour sense!

Dillon Thompson said...

Ryan I am so glad you post so many rad paintings. Its easy to see how you can easily make a good living doing this. I would hate for you to have to stop and dream about making money as a galery artist like some artist around Utah do.

adrian said...

I love how the color use in several of your works looks almost "old" for lack of a better term. Very subdued and pre-computer looking. GREAT!!!

j. scott said...
