    Messing around for fun trying to paint up an 'thopter design that mixes contemporary copters with a low-tech computerless future:

    Like this a lot!
    Love how you've drawn the sky right up to that propeller blade - gives the whole painting a solid strength. Lovely colour and real volumes in those dust clouds.
    Great stuff!

    It's all about that smudgy pallet-knife to get a sense of movement. I still dig hard edges though, everything in balance I guess.

    lol, found this on some anarchist website:

    Feel good, but perhaps a bit more contrast, or u did that on purpose?

    Good call fenko, that's something I could tune up quick give it a little more polish to make sense of all the painterly details. I suppose I was trying to add as much atmosphere in the sandstorm/wormsign as possible but I could do that with some simple gradients to lighten up parts of the 'thopter. Maybe even a little lightning while I'm at it.
