Here's a quick lil painting I wanted to try as an exercise. I made up a quick lil story in my head as I went along. Didn't really plan much at all except that I wanted to do hills and stuff and a weird arch type thing.  Putt'n this is scrap cause it is. I may come back and work over it more though :)

I always liked a fun and creative story without words.  This one doesn't even have characters.

A way out? Do I take the nice and tidy trail next to the farmhouse on the right, or do I step through the arch into the great wide void?

But doesn't the bomb at the bottom left tell me all my time has already run out and there's not even a second left to run until it'll explode?

And then...a hand? A scary zombie hand reaching out of the ground to get me? 0.o

I really like this. I dig the painty style to.

i think it looks nice, the colors are very warm and inviting, but the bottom of the painting makes it seem that everything is going to become dark and eerie

I see the signification in it li'l bro. It's more like a resume of what the humanity is a this point right now (well that's my opinion) but it can be apply to a lot... Nice style Looq and I also like the allegoric signification of this picture

A what portal? :P I've seen a lil bit of minecraft, never played the game though. Not much of a gamer really.

Oh, nice, speed painting backgrounds. I've been doing some of these and ditching them. Haven't found one I really liked yet that I did.
7 years, 7 months ago
Speed ditching? :P This one's still on the back burner, but I'd like to flesh out all the little quirky details and redo some things in this one. It's a mess of unorganized layers I just piled on everytime I wanted to do a major change like color changing or painting on a 'normal' mode layer. Prolly should just merge the thing and work it like that. I downloaded a couple of speed painting books lately that show some pretty cool techniques and processes though. I sooo wanna make use of them sooooon.

Me too ... except the PDF I want to put to use is "how to do watercolor backgrounds" ... X)

Yeah, you know, I don't hold onto a picture I don't like and continue to work at it for hours when I know I won't prefer the end result, sometimes a spark is there, sometimes it's not. Only the artist can say if it works for them or not.

" mess of unorganized layers

You should see the PSD for this, 20 layers, no rhyme or reason. https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=140258

http://www.mediafire.com/?14o0l0agg6d1u7n I worked from bottom to top, the bottom was a Zbrush 3 "render" if you can call it that. >_< (Alt+Printscreen!)

Do you use Photoshop or Painter? I just started Painter and it makes me want to strangle the program. That LAG!!

" sometimes a spark is there, sometimes it's not. Only the artist can say if it works for them or not.

Hmm...that's a pretty efficient way to work. Sometimes I've gotten rather nice things out of starting from no idea at all and just doodling or playing around. Other times I have to build up this idea in my head, then do enough sketches until something happens where I'm satisfied. Landscapes like this are a lot like that first process, but right now the idea of it just isn't do'n it for me. It's way too.. "hazy" I guess. I've heard that some artist really thrive on this "diving into with little or no idea" appoach, while others need a clear idea of what they want. It seems to come down to motivation for working on an image I think.

My teacher liked to encourage continuously working over something. Like if you weren't satisfied, take what's there and mod the heck out of it or build over it. Same thing mostly even if you WERE satisfied with it lol. It was especially fun to do group collaborations like that, because you never knew what somebody would add to the image.

Oh wow! Thanks for the PSD! I love seeing how other artists work on their stuff! You really tweaked the heck out of that zbrush image. Did you put a texture on the model too, or shape all those little parts in zbrush itself? I'm pretty new to the program, never could quite get used to the interface.

I use SAI btw. Painter is a little slow yeah. What really gets me about it is all those different catagories of brushes, and the fact that some "media" doesn't work with others. I get the whole "emulating real media" thing, but I wish they'd break or bend the rules just a little. Like have whatever your painting on behave like it was painted with the type of brush you use on it. An oil painting could "act" like watercolor when using that brush for example. But anywho, I like using SAI mainly because it's quick and intuitive. I've just recently been tinkering with photohop again because of it's brush system, but have yet to upload anything done with it.
