SketchBook 02,

Speedpainting ~ 40m

Same sketch serie as: [link]
Both these sketches are based on pencil sketches I did first to lay out my composition. I'm starting to enjoy doing these a lot.

I think I enjoy this work the most out of the 3. The city on the mountain is fantastic. Even if only some of the buildings in the town below are slanted slightly, it doesn't detract from the picture, but adds a sense of those who live there are poorer than those who live on the mountain.

A book from the book series, Myst, seemed to spring in my mind when I tied the person on the animal into the picture. Shame I forgot the book's name.

Anyway, your futuristic touch fits well into the environmental setting. I can't explain why, but it just works...

If anything, maybe more of those grey mists (maybe a little lighter?) above the lone person on the animal. Possibly more of the mist higher up on the mountain to better fill up the right and so you get that early-morning rolling mist.

Very good job on this one. =D

thanks.. I really like this one myself because of all the weird contrasts.. also your comment about the poor city in front is exactly what my idea was :) I really glad you could see that! Cheers

I know asking is dangerous, but a follow-up of this painting (maybe from a different angle...?) would be extraordinary. You could do much with this, really. Much more. =) Besides, you do an awesome job anyway.

Great stuff! I love the little details like the spaceships flying in/out of the city.

Nice lighting on the mountain, it doe slook a bit "comic-book-ish" but maybe that's why it looks so cool, sinc eit's very clean and modern looking for a speedpaint 8-)
