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
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
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!!
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 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!!
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.
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!
