Armour study 1

Armour Study
Over on Deviant Art is a relatively new speedpaint group run by Wolkenfels .  This was one of study images this month.  I did not end up doing as a speedpaint however.  I started it that way but ended up detailing it out took close to 4 hours I think.

Pup Portrait

Pup Portrait

This pup portrait is a rendering of a dog I have shown work of before.  This is a photo.  I also did a more recent quick sketch .
In the latter she had a grooming not strictly for cosmetic reasons.  As she is part Bichon she suffers from allergies and the vet recommended the crew cut.  Anyway this was using a photo taken before she lost her locks.   Took about 2 hours.  Definitely getting faster at these photo studies.

Maintenance Man

Maintenance  Man


This is a quick effort at portraying a maintenance man. The spanner may be a bit of overkill.  The other is a really quick study of a woman.

After -Street Scene

O'Connell street Dublin
After- Street Scene

Following the last environment effort I wanted to have another go putting some of what I learned into practice.  This is based on O'Connell Street Dublin.  It did not take as long as the last one so that was a plus.  Built on a one point perspective I did a value study then painted over that.  The hardest thing with this was not to let it get too muddy.

Utilities Sunset

Utilities Sunset
This is a landscape that I worked on for a while.  It started as a value study and then drifted from that into the final image.  I spent way longer on this than the final image might suggest.  I did try a lot of different things and at least identified alot of things that I need way more practice on. Will try another piece.
