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

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.

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.

Hmmm, the cows remind me of a boss in Zelda. Who knows if that was your reference
I love how gritty and detailed your freestyled are, very atmospheric. They communicate their theme very well. Delicious texture.stud.art.cg | my art tumblr + schoolwork

Thanks for all the comments guys.
And krisCrash, I've never played Zelda (I was a Sega Genesis guy as opposed to a Nintendo guy), but if you have a pic of that boss, I would be interested in seeing it.

http://www.stefan-arntz.de/spiele_lo...mages/goht.jpg though fairly more stocky than yours and with a Babylonian-like face.
The particular game (Majora's Mask) was probably not very popular.stud.art.cg | my art tumblr + schoolwork

Ah ok, you're talking about a more recent version of zelda. I thought you meant this...
Thanks for the pic! I'm sure I'll do some more cattle in the future, something about the shape really speaks to me.

Quick speed painting, I can't imagine any painting that could properly capture the scale of these enormous cliffs. They were cool to see, cool to photograph, and now cool to paint. Check em out if you're ever in Ireland, they're not to be missed.

After a long break recording an instructional DVD, I'm back to making art, and more specifically, scifi art! Here's my latest speed painting...
An armada of ships being lead through space by what I could only describe as a giant flying wing. Speed Painting, maybe took me 4-5 hours.
