Landshark Hoverbike by freakyfir Landshark Hoverbike by freakyfir
Here's Flint Cooper's ride; the Landshark. It's a standard-issue hoverbike for marshals of all sectors to traverse the peculiar terrain of our yet-to-be-name planet. Played around with some broken planets/asteroid field in the distant background and adding a little bit of green for peculiarity. Not sure if all that worked, but I've already wasted too much time on this.

Anyway, I think my entire approach to image-making doesn't seem efficient. In fact, I always feel it's wrong. I gotta rethink my process and finishing.

While I have absolutely NO experience with performing digital artistry, on the other hand from my experiences as an omnivore-dilettante your work shows great promise and progress, little by little. Efficiency be damned, that comes with time. Efficiency is a matter for industry or calculated survival, neither of which is conducive to performing art in any form. I personally like the mugginess and abstraction that comes with the piece, from the background. It gives a sense of an unusual, need I say alien?, and unforgiving background overwhelming with dust and brutal wind, justification for Flint's garb and mask. I can imagine him cussing at having to clean out the dust and pebbles from every crevice and intake of his Landshark, a device whose bold look and design were meant for more rural farming planets, and not the harsh conditions of Sector 13. An oversight of central law enforcement and their contractors- no dust shield for the intake!

What game is this for? You mention that its a project but not the name of the game itself.
Great looking image btw.

Awesome design, and really great image.
I'd suggest not worrying too much about finding an efficient way of working, so much as one that lets you enjoy the process while still getting quality results. Speed and efficiency stem more from practice and experience than from finding that fabled ninja secret method that lets you paint a masterpiece in five minutes, and there's always going to be a little bit of uncertanty about if you're going to screw up somehow or whether an image is going to work as well as it does in your head (hence the saying "its an art, not a science") The important thing is to just find a way of working that you can get into a groove with, and that gives you predictable results for the time you spend, and just practice it until it feels completely natural.
