Wow. I forgot to crop it
This one feels rushed. I think I was getting overwhelmed with my new job at this time.
I liked this one as I was experimenting with chalk brushes. One of my better daily landscape paintings.
It’s an old painting but I thought I have some paintings that I want to show first before I start uploading my latest work.
A speed painting of a bleak forest. Ref from wikimedia.
First env study painting where rocks are the main focus. I want to give my paintings a more traditional look so I stated painting with brushes that give a ‘dry brush’ effect. References use for painting are from Wikimedia Commons.
I painted a snowy mountain scene. I had trouble balancing the painting, both compositional and light wise. after a hour and a half, I knew I needed to let go. I need to put a person, creature, or something on the slope on the lower right. Although there isn’t much, this painting a color painting, most of my previous paintings are gray scale with a tone added. Painted in photoshop. Time Spent :One and a half hour
Here is a WIP for a Album Cover I am working on. Featuring a serpent-dragon thing who has had the misfortune to accidentally tie himself up in a knot. It is relatively done, just needs some clean up in a few rough spots. I spent about 7 hours on it so far. Painted in Photoshop. Made some custom brushes for this painting. Let me know what you think 😀
For this landscape painting, I wanted to experiment with red and yellows. I thought a desert setting would be cool and decided to try something more original and put it in a valley surrounded by mountains and put a giant building in the mountain.
A new daily project, similar to my head a day project that I worked on for 35 days.
For the next thirty days will be doing a 30 day environment painting challenge with the exception of the last day in which I will pick the best of the lot and clean it up and make it a portfolio piece. This is mostly to improve myself. Any feedback is most welcome.
