Looks like a scene in the Silent Hill games. I love the fog!

Poor guy. It's no fun getting shot in the head.

I have started doing paintings in Ps and they are looking really good the only thing is I have to use a reference picture to take the colors from and what not. I want to be able to paint something from scratch like you do. If you could give me one word of advice what would it be? 

Look forward to seeing more of your amazing work.

Well - for sure.
There is nothing against using images as a reference. Everything that helps to get better is the right way.
Another good way is to play around with layer effect - such as soft light, hard light and so on.
Try to paint in a soft ramp on a separate layer and play with those effects. Sometimes happy accidents will do the trick, too.
Beside that, you could play around with the color balance tool, too. A great way to change the values for the highlights, mid-tones and shadows.
And the most important thing - keep experimenting!

This is exactly what I love in your works!Your style is really good and unique!
Are you using the sharpen effect?

THANKS,
so much for the kind words! Absolutely appreciated and be sure I'm happy that you like it.
Yup - I use the sharpen effect at the end and apply it to all of my images. Gives some nice touches, too:)

You're welcome!
Ahh,I see! ^^
I just started using that effect too,but I need sooooooo soo much more practicing hehe.
And do you usually make a sketch before starting?Or you instantly put on the basic colours?

donmalo Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Professional Interface Designer

Yeah - the effect should be used with care. Another good option is the unsharp mask effect - more setting and you could play until you're happy!

Well - this really depends on what the image should be. I do sketches but mostly for character/creature work. Landscape are happen most of the time straighg in PS with blocking in colors.

I just wanted to tell the story and didn't focused on the body-language. On the other hand side - its straight the moment where your trigger move :)
Cheers and thanks for the support!

i think something that almost all of your pieces have in common is that they are very calm so it just fits your style :)

I view it as an artistic choice. The idea, as I see it, is to make a scene with very little action but large meaning.

Either he kidnapped him and took him to an obscure location so that he could shoot him, or he just killed him and is about to hide his body in the trunk. OR, he is a survivor which was happened upon by a zombie. Zombies are always a viable answer.

Either way, coooool. :D
