Medical Bay by JamesLedgerConcepts Medical Bay by JamesLedgerConcepts
The 7th image I have created for MaiaGame maiagame.com/media.php About 5 days work. This image is not available to buy as it's copyrighted by the client.

All created from scratch in Photoshop CS5 Extended. Just like usual, I blocked in very basic shapes and used the vanishing point tool to get the perspective set up. The lasso tools are essential for the sharp edges. To get the reflections correct I used the vanishing point tool to accurately measure distances etc.

I assure you it IS a painting - I have no 3D software. ALL my paintings are done in photoshop, using the vanishing point tool to set up perspective grids. They look like they have been done with 3D software because I spend ages using the lasso tools to cut the shapes out, rather than simply paint freehand.
If I used 3D software, I would state that.
The vanishing point tool is only available in the 'extended' version of Photoshop. I can create grids and render them to a layer, which I use as a guide to align each element of my painting, making it look very accurate. It just takes time.

Thanks loads Iza - don't wish, just do.

I have to practice/work for clients 16 hours per day to be as good as i am. It's taken me 3 years from scratch, totally self taught, using books and youtube tutorials. It IS very hard, but if you practice for one month, every day for just 2 hours, you will be twice as good as you are now. Tell yourself every day that you are going to be an amazing artist, even when you feel frustrated and it all looks hopeless.

I still can't draw people, but I guarantee you I will one day, once I have practiced enough.
Draw what you love to draw, over and over and over. Look at as many photographs as you can before becoming saturated with boredom - this will help you to understand how things work, and how they look, making it much easier to create your own ideas. Copy or even trace images, as it helps your brain to understand and remember what objects look like. There is no special book, or special tutorial, it always comes down to practice, then you will realise how to make good artwork because your brain will work it all out.

I can believe you. Sometimes mine still take that long to be honest, but when the pressure is there from the clients there is little choice, even it means no sleep for a week.

I work so much better under pressure of a deadline.
Unfortunately, my artwork is never on a deadline.
At least not a serious one. :D

Cheers as usual - yes, the smoothness is the result of the reflections and clean gradients.

Very nice work! I especially like the dirtiness on the floor next to the mop and also to the right of the biohazard box. The lighting and reflections are also superb. This definitely looks like it was 5 days work!!!

Nice one - you should have seen the original dirt i was gonna put there, human excrement, vomit etc. It was gonna be a real shocker with a naked man lying on the floor having a seizure but I just couldn't go through with it and the man would be too difficult for me to draw.

I'm actually kind of glad you didn't do that. It would have been pretty gory and I think what you have here is quite enough to intrigue people anyway.
