    Another new cattle image. Why I am obsessed with alien looking cows? I don't know, I just am.

    Decided to do a bunch of speed paintings this month, this is the first of a new batch. Got a little crazy with the colors, so I guess this is more an "impression" of a volcano eruption than a real volcano, although you'd be surprised at some of the crazy colors you get when a real volcano explodes.

    great gallery so far, you have a great sense of light in your paintings.
    My favourites would have to be the last 2 cow pictures, they've got a cool style and they're creepy as hell

    Thanks Jacky-Boy.

    This is a study from a photo I found on the net. Unfortunately, I can no longer find the original photo, and so I don't have the name of the photographer to credit. Painted in about an hour in photoshop.

    This is a study from a photo my cousin took in Switzerland. Painted in about 2 hours in photoshop. I altered the lighting a bit from the original photo to get a little more drama in there.

    haha! dude! I am from Switzerland!! soooo cool man!! I could tell what Im looking at from the moment I saw the icon in the Sketchbook-list!!!
    very well done! …but unless the angle of the ref photo isn´t very strange, there should be some other mountains in the background…If i remember right…hehe!

    the mountain is called Matterhorn… shit… I should also do such paintings, I just realized that I got such beautiful ref right at my front-door

    keep it coming
    cheers

    Thanks bigfoo, the fact you were able to instantly recognize the mountain means I guess I did my job And no, from this angle, there weren't any other mountains visible, probably because we're low looking up. Enjoy your scenery, it's pretty darn beautiful.

    This is a study from a photo I took back in 2001 during a Lake Mead houseboat trip with blur studio. I always enjoy a really spectacular sunset, this was shortly after the sun dipped below the horizon and all that's left is those crazy saturated oranges, pinks and yellows. Painted in an hour or two, I wanted to get all the detail and richness of the colors in that sky.

    Hi Neil
    cool stuff happening here, so you have painting skills too
    looking forward for better and better work
    i also like your custom brushes, it really have texture feeling

    other than that we missed you at Luxology forum, do you still work with Modo?

    Thanks alshakno, glad you're enjoying the paintings so far. Haven't done much modo stuff for awhile, I decided that I missed having a construction history / modifier stack too much, and will give modo another spin when they add the feature.

    It's the end of a furious week of speed painting, so I guess it makes sense to do a sunset to close out. This was based on a photo I took while on vacation in Big Sur with my wife, every night we sat on the coast and watched the sun go down. In our busy lives, it's difficult to find the time to watch a nice sunset. Just like how it's difficult to find time for speed painting. But both are worth the effort.
