Hello again guys.
I did this last night. I was trying to do a hard-edged artwork style instead of the usual subtle blending and shading, after having been inspired by this artwork (as well as other artworks of that artist). This is my first time doing so and I really appreciate any more constructive crits as well as advice for future works of similar (or even dissimilar) vein.
This is also, I think, the closest I could get of a decent speed paint, and it's at 4 hours (I know, sad). I think I seriously need to study colour theory so I can cut that time to a really reasonable speed paint level. What do you think?
Done using Painter IX. If you guys can also tell me what you think the brushes used in that artwork I linked to are, it'd be nice. As it is, in this artwork, I used Artist's Oil (Dry Brush) and various brushes under the Oil category.
