Creature of the Oasis by AlexRuizArt Creature of the Oasis by AlexRuizArt
This is another piece in which custom brushes really dictate and lead an image through to the end. I love being able to blend the abstract with realism, as I tried to do here:)
If any of you want to learn to make brushes in this manner, I highly recommend David Levy's 'From Speedpainting to Concept Art' dvd produced by the Gnomon School of visual Effects.

Beautifull work, I love the gradations of the blue tones. The combination of natural and mechanical elements are very well integrated.
