Man, these are awesome! I love the use of textures and colors, very unique effect and spot-on look from the movies.

Great job, looking forward to seeing more!
Per your request good sir, I've uploaded 2 more galleries of my cas's that I'm sure will peak you're interest so feel free to check them out at your leisure.

Lately I haven't been that enthusiastic when it comes to creating or posting. The community is overly saturated with abysmal work, and any of the truly talented Cas artist have moved on from this series altogether. But I do have a huge back log of cas work I've yet to post so here's a few more metal monsters for you guys to chew on.

I know that feel lol
Can't point out what gone wrong, but 8wr cas community this round definitely failed compared to SCV period... wich is a shame because SC6 deserve much more than SCV
As told you on other thread got some back log too, and more than that ideas for like 50 more lol, but community being dead kills pretty much the will to even bother do the effort to take good pics and build up decent presentation post

Still got that little OC project to show (at this point as farewell thing) and few existing recreations to do, but that's it

Btw your work is quality, these with transformers are good but are not even your best stuff. I remember some more "human" designs from you that were even better (specially Strider stuff iirc)

Too bad you joined so close to the end
Kinda depressing too the fact people focused on your not-kissing-ass attitude rather than the fact you bring some new quality work, wich is something this forum DESPERATELY need

The accusation of lack of OCs were pretty petty too, as somebody who did tons of OC i don't find it something mandatory, recreations can be just as good too. Some of my own favourite pieces (including my absolute fav) are recreations

Again, great stuff on display here! Instantly recognizable and with a very OC feel.

On a slightly more critical side note, I think Gatsu and you have really proven that you earned yourselves some confidence and you both have a very high reputation, rightly so. Your skills speak for themselves. On the other hand, I believe that part of the dead forum problem is the (in my opinion unnecessary) more generalizing belittling of other people's content in some of your (as well as some others' posts, which, in turn, might be discouraging for anyone who feels passionate about their creation but fears that they'll not be up to more popular artists' standards. Talking diminishingly of others doesn't make your work any better (like that was possible lol), but I get a different, more exclusional vibe about this forum every time I read things like these. While I'm still happy about every creation you post, this community would thrive on encouragement from popular artists like the two of you, I suppose.

To end with a quote: "with great power comes great responsibility" lol

Keep up the outstanding work!

These look amazing. The level of detail you add to bring the metal out on each character is fantastic. Great cas work usually inspires me to want to get back to creating more CaS. I'm sure you have a whole lot more works that are even better. (i still remember your ranger works from years ago) Keep up the great work.

I agree, your recreations are top notch. but i was hoping to see more of your original creations - just to see what type of concepts you can make.
also, if this forum seems dead, i'm pretty sure some "friendly" competition among the CAS artist could spark it back up😉👍

Appreciate the compliment and I've been working on a oc project I'll be demoing soon! I feel that art is the greatest expression of one's self, and it does serve as inspiration and the competitive nature in a person like me to never stay complacent but to improve and continue to evolve as well!

Greatly appreciate the compliment, and you're right I've probably got about 340 cas's I've yet to feature but my thoughts mirror Gatsu's sentiments I'm pretty much going to retire from Cas after putting together a final compilation before the holiday approaches. I've bump some of my other galleries so by all means please feel free to check them out!

Thanks man appreciate you checking the gallery, in all honesty it I just let the work speak for it's self lol so I'm fine with the pop shots, long as the work I've shown has been bullet proof.

Some of these people I've ran across in other groups so I'm not to surprised there assess are a little chapped regarding my comments to some of there work.

Far as posting anymore of my work here, I'd say it's pretty much over and it's not in junction with anyone in particular, but ive done well over 400 Cas, majority of them probably won't get posted which is bitter sweet. I'll post one more one m gallery before the holiday then it's officially over for me and this series.

Btw feel free to check out my Berserk gallery also.

Tbh this forum ever (more so when was alive) had plenty of shitty habits and nerd drama, just done in more indirect way.
As asshole i may sound i respectful disagree and say elitism is probably last of the probems

-spoiler warning i'll be bit more brutal honest here-
If anything a (but not the only) greater problem here is people dropping the term "cas ARTIST"(i'm not quoting your post specifically, is common trend), while not even me would feel comfortable use that term on myself despite being seen as the #1 guy
I would maybe call myself "artist" (and still i'm not sure to deserve it) because i am/was a professional illustrator and in the past career bunch of mine works got published (and paid) on books here in Italy, not because i did some nice puppets in some japanese game
Call themselves artist imply an undeserved sense of accomplishment, and that lack of humbleness lead to not feel need to improve their own method and polish it, result is idk how many here have a decent process doing this shit, but i think i have enough fingers in my hands to count all of them

I never punched down on mediocre stuff, i think lot can even say i've been willing to help from time to time
May be wrong i don't even remember even one time somebody asked me for help and i ignored him
Not even punched down on mediocre glorified shit or wannabe patronizing douches, wich you have no idea how much tempted me to dive kick in lol but ultimately was'nt worth the effort, specially because i'm here to have good time

But i don't judge Jay's attitude either, all i care is he backed his talking with quality pieces (a rarity), he made his threads worthy to be clicked on.
If anything as said i found more embarassing see lot people jump there just to push him down as retaliation

And to be brutally honest when he showed his stuff he proven to be somewhere in the SC6 top10, so his claim to not be impressed by most (notice he just said to not be impressed by them, not that they suck) while may sound offensive, probably is just normal considering he does'nt have many to watch up to
If i must say who impressed ME, and be honest about it, i would probably pass just as asshole as him, probably much more.

Sometimes truth is just not nice

SCV age of 8WR was cas forum golden age because despite there were still guys dicksucking each other and playing gimmicks of any kind (wich i guess was all stolen time from actually try to become good at this shit), there was also much stronger sense meritocracy, wich leaded to people working harder to show decent stuff and be part of the community
There's a reason SCV time used to have plenty of contest, challenges or community threads (often with biased results, but at least was something) while now everybody wants just spotlight on their own gallery, let alone guess twice if they're ready to have one

Far as posting anymore of my work here, I'd say it's pretty much over and it's not in junction with anyone in particular, but ive done well over 400 Cas, majority of them probably won't get posted which is bitter sweet. I'll post one more one m gallery before the holiday then it's officially over for me and this series.

Btw feel free to check out my Berserk gallery also.
Yeah, was checking for free slots the other day and realized in the two panels i'got guess at least 10 cas i still never posted, and i'm not counting the same-theme bunch i will release as SC6 farewell gift

Checked that and all galleries you just bumped, are all pretty good. The throne taker one had by far your best pieces though, probably also the one where you worked on recreations that fit most your style
