Thread: Speed Painting
September 30th, 2008 #1
decided to post here a quick speedpainting i did
although just for fun i really want to hear some constructive criticism
also may i ask how does the sketchbook system work
are we supposed to only create one thread and then update it from time to time or something else?
help me out on this since i'm really eager to create one of my own ^^

Yeah, just go to the sketchbook section and start a thread. I have to give you points on boldness in this one, striking color and a pretty extreme angle makes it more compelling. I'm a little unsure of what I'm supposed to be seeing though- it seems caught somewhere between trees/plants and mountains. That gets in the way of really getting caught up in the image.

One thing I liked in particular were the subtle variations in greens and yellows on the side of your structures. (Like the prior poster, I was unsure if they were mountains or very stylized trees. They seemed more mountainy, although not broken and cracked with sharp planes shearing off, like I envision rocks or mountains.)
I think the shadows feel a little strong to me, particularly as they move away from the base of the mountains. Shadows are darkest right at the base, but because of refracted and reflected light, the further you get from the shadowing object, the lighter the shadow gets.
I like the people--they give the piece scale and make it feel like a surreal landscape.

i see what you mean perhaps i should darken the base of the mountain/rock thing
well regarding your vision of rocks i guess you could consider this as not rocks but more of mountainous formation, perhaps i didnt explain myself to well do forgive me ^^; but its hard for me to explain it in enlgish (im portuguese XD) its like a mountain attached to another mountain XD
