Messing around with colours...
Man I don't even know where to go from here. I've never painted properly before. This'll be line-less, and I don't know how to clean up this mess lol.
Also not sure if I want to add the monster or tornado and people running in fear now. I kind of like the calmness of it, while the emptiness is unsettling. I might add rays of light beaming through the clouds...
If anybody has any thoughts please let me know!

You can slap on a new layer and paint over everything again, if you don't want those lines.
Maybe a UFO vacuuming up a bunch of citizens would be a fun touch. The place is looking pretty desolate, and light rays would probably emphasize it even more; I'd understand people not wanting to go out on a gloomy day, but not a nice cloudy, sunny day.
Also, I really like vase/pitcher work you did from a tutorial. Keep rockin!

woahhhh that jar painting.. i thought it was a photo or a maya render o__o so much improvement going on here, the studies are really nice too

Thank you both! The vase was fun. The tutorial helped a lot (ctrlpaint.com). And fishysmell, I'm going to add more dramatic lighting, but I'll also add people on the street so it doesn't look so desolate.
So I'm progressing a bit more. Just painting directly over everything. I'm just doing a flat, detail-less coat of paint at the moment. I'll add proper lighting and textures/details once I get everything looking nice and smooth.
Finished this coat on the buildings, not onto the rest of the image. I've never painted like this before but it's pretty fun! I like not worrying too much about brush strokes. If it goes out of the lines, so what. I'm not going for realism, I want a bit of loose-ness.
Decided I'm going to have a big monster in the distance and people running in fear. Should be cool!

Finished first ground coat of paint. Also adjusted levels/colours to make it "pop" a bit more. It was looking a bit too dull.
Will now start final rendering. This is when things will hopefully start to look good!

those photo-studies are amazing! that's quite the onion you painted there about the last piece, i will keep my comments/advices as it is your first one, and as you said you didn't want a realistic finish (i cant help with cartoon advices, as it is not my area of comfort) so enjoy finishing it! have you learned something from painting that yet? keep it up!

Thanks! Yeah I've been learning a lot. It's been a struggle though, taking me much longer than anticipated.
Anyway, still going away at it...
Things to do from here:
- Final layer of paint to add lots of detail. Most important step I've yet to do lol. This should change the painting dramatically. All I've done so far is a very basic layer of paint with a big brush.
- Adjust colours so light rays effect the city lighting/shadows.
- Add a few people running in fear and maybe a car.
Also, does it look better flipped? I can't decide. I think having the monster on the left attracts the eye more. But having it on the right lets the eye following down along the city angle to the monster.

Worked my butt off today. From sun up to 11:00pm. But its done! I decided not to add humans as it was kind of distracting.
I'm really happy with this. I learned a lot from it and I can only get better from here on out. Let me know what you think!

- Fixed street lamp spacing (also different lighting coming out of them)
- Fixed door sizes (also changed position and size of "50" sign)
Officially calling it finished now. You can see critique thread here: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...73#post3459573

Took a small break after that painting to recuperate lol. I'll be getting back into studies tomorrow. In the meantime here's an extremely rough pose from imagination. Not my best attempt but I can see where I went wrong.

Great studies! You're doing awesome. Keep it up.

Getting back into action... Some really fast and rough gesture sketches from TV and the ipad PoseBook app (which is awesome!). A bit cartoony also.
