Legitimate: Plz Stahp by Spex84
Legitimate: Plz Stahp
A plea from the heart, or perhaps the kidneys.
"Legitimately" is the new "totally", apparently, except it's even more inapt than "totally" was.

I suppose we could rewind a half century and go back to using "certifiable". As in, "that whale is certifiably massive".


Just uploaded a time-lapse video of the CoralShip Factory painting. Check it out!
Coralship Factory by Spex84
Coralship Factory
This is a rough pass at an idea I've had kicking around for a while now. Didn't quite get the result I wanted, but it's all good. Now I know where to improve it. It's a place where spacecraft are grown in pod-like stacks....when they've matured, they're broken off and installed in a fixture on the ground where they are adjusted and brought up to flight-ready status.

Rough 3D with photobashed textures applied, then some paint-over in Photoshop.

*UPDATE*: Now with some time-lapse video! See it here:…
Deluxe: Night Cruise by Spex84
Deluxe: Night Cruise
Another from my trad hot rodding IP project.
This is a mix of 3D and photoshop, just trying to capture a bit of that night-time feeling of cruising under the lights...
I might revisit this idea at some point and make it communicate the idea more clearly with a lower angle  to show the buildings, and more cars, and show the crowd properly...
Deluxe: Mulholland by Spex84
Deluxe: Mulholland
Every so often I sit down and create an image for a hot rodding game IP I've been tossing around as a pet project for several years now. Pretty much a pipe dream, but hey, it's nice to dream sometimes.
Also every so often, someone tries to make a game along these lines. Those games are universally either low quality, or anachronistic/have no real sense of accuracy or history. I guess I can still hope :P
This one is a race along Mulholland Drive, kind of a re-envisioning of the level from Street Rod I and II, and countless films.
This journal entry was a little too ragey in retrospect. Tired of looking at it. TLDR version: To remove the annoying banner ads in Skype, you can find instructions below:…

You should make a gumroad tutorial. I'd buy the crap out of it.

Thanks so much man!
  I've been trying to figure out what I know that I could make a tutorial out of. It's tough! But I recently did some experimenting with Bandicam and Audacity, and have the ability to make some basic vids now.
You should make gumroad tuts about those TF2 pieces you've been doing. People friggin love fan art, you'd get rich! lol.

While that's true, gunroad appeals to a totally different demographic than the usual fans of video games. Gumroad is about the art and technique. I'd make one about the way I paint, but I really don't have much to offer, I'd just be showing more of the same. There are plenty of people who are more qualified to teach. Like you, for example.
