Canyon Sketch by steve-burg Canyon Sketch by steve-burg
A speedpaint exercise in painting rock formations. I used a couple of custom brushes to achieve the texture...

The two travelers look like they may be lost... ;)

I'm not using to much in the way of fancy brushes. I'm not sure how to do a download - but I really mostly used the hard edged round brushes to block things in, and then some sponge type brushes for the rocky texture effects. ALso, some erasing in areas to show a layer underneath :D

Great speedpaint. It really puts you in the place. You can almost feel the arid atmosphere. So how long did this take?

:iconsteve-burg:
steve-burg Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2010  Professional Filmographer
Usually these take about an hour, maybe an hour and a half. It depends on a lot of "intangibles" like how much sleep did you get, blood sugar level, the alignment of Jupiter's moons - all that stuff factors into it :D

Yeah, I could tell from the pose of the figures that you had used a Ganymede/Europa alignment on this one, but it has that extra flair that you get only when Earth's Moon is also in its last quarter. A truly professional touch!! :D

not lost - left the main group to go off for a crafty smoke whilst the others argue amongst themselves on whose turn to command and navigate the TunnelratŠ it is. (looks like something from a game not long ago)

I don't know the Tunnelrat game - but I take your word for it :D

The tunnelrat is an eightlegged mecha type vehicle used for exploring undergrounds and underground river systems, the game is a Traveller hybrid.

i like those abstractish rock formations! surprising how -- inspite of (or maybe because of?!) these strongly visible brush traces -- they evoque dry, warm sandstone interspersed with ammonites and other fossiles.
so you really parked the spaceship? :)
happy creations!! :party:

Thank you :) It does look like sandstone - I think you're right. I'm sure there are plenty of fossils in those rocks, and who knows what else may be lurking?

I definitely haven't parked the spaceship - it's just not visible in this particular view :lol:

yesterday i saw a surprising video on youtoube about painting the Mona Lisa with ms paint... and then went on to a "MMO (massively multiplayer online)-painting session" of 4 artists who worked together simultaneously over the web. now i know a bit better, what speed painting is.

things are developing so fast, quite amazing!

Wow! I think it would be very unnerving to have even 2 artists painting on a picture at the same time! I have enough trouble with just one :lol:

we did this quite a while ago with some artist friends at School -- but with brushes and ink and colors on paper, it was great fun. i still have the paintings -- in some of them i can remember who did a certain stroke and smile. it was an adventure. of course as "massively online" ;)-effort it's an altogether new story -- you know much more about! :)

hey, it is speeded up speed painting! :eyepopping:
