Abandoned-Tavern speedpaint

Abandoned-Tavern speedpaint

A speedpaint done for the speedpaint group on DA.  As ever I took the full 2 hours.  The reference was courtesy of neverFading stock here.  
I don't like doing interiors because of the requirement for all that precision but in an effort to become more comfortable with this I decided to do a series of interiors.

Alexei Savrasov Winter Landscape Master Study

After Alexei Savrasov,  Winter Landscape

A master study of Alexei Savrasov s Winter Landscape.  Did not know too much about this Russian landscape painter.  This one was a lot about the subtle shifts in value.  Did not spend too long on this maybe 3 hours.

On the move

On the move

Started out as a study. Started with the background then went off script.  Might get back to the study again.  

I have finished moving and am now surrounded with lots of boxes which I might or might not unpack. My Internet connection is a bit dodgy here so will just have to see how things go.  All that has had an impact on how much time I can spend practicing.  I start my new job next week so I will have to get used to a different routine.  I have lost my lunchtime study time and will spend more time commuting but on the plus side I am hoping that i wont be so tired in the evenings.  We shall see ..

Mechanical Studies 1

Train Study
Armoured Car Study

My linework is really poor in Photoshop.  To try and get some practice I started to do some studies of mechanical type things.  Started with linework then rendered.  These can only improve with practice right?

White Witch

White Witch

The CHOW on was the  White Witch.  As I am in between jobs I for once had some time to give it a go and post WIPs.  Unfortunately the website has been down for the last while but  I kept working on the character. Turned out to be quite a lot of work.  At the end of it my fav bit are the mice.
