I really, really love this picture. It looks like it could be the cover for some awesome sci-fi book. :)

Glad to hear that, thanks for feedback man! How's the university? Do you paint too or is it more software knowledge and graphics / 3D?

It made me think of Hyperion by Dan Simmons specifically, which is one of the most iconic sci-fi book covers out there. I really like it. :)
It's all good, we're currently working on our first big project, the Child Room. I'm currently doing concept sketches for it, and working on the previz for the camera movements and stuff. After that, we'll mostly be doing 3D stuff. I'd love to get going on a few painting projects, though... Hopefully I'll find time for that soon enough. :) here, here and here are a few of the Child Room videos from earlier years, if you're wondering what kind of project it is. :)

How's life in your neck of the woods? What're you up to these days, apart from making awesome SF and fantasy art? ;)

The movie looks sweet man, very pro stuff.

I am fooling around with a site, wip: www.romanhodek.tumblr.com

Other than that I'm looking forward to playing Deus Ex 3 and Witcher 2.

Oh man, I've been playing Deus Ex 3 way too much lately. Last couple of days, I've been home from uni with a terrible cold, and that game is one hell of a time sink, let me tell you that. :D Soon hoping to pick up Witcher 2 as well, though I'll have to play that on my school computer. We get full admin rights on them, and they're proper workstations, so most games run really well on them. :)

Haha Witcher 2 VS workstation, that will be interesting.

Yeah, CG workstations are pretty damn powerful, but not always great with games. I've honestly never tried gaming with a Xeon processor before. :P

I love the baroque-ish color scheme here and how it's brought to modern day with a futuristic theme.

I didn't exactly had THAT in mind when I was painting the thing, but I'm glad you like it!

Watching your progress is really one of the most fascinating things ever!
