Solomon's Temple

This was for another Environment of the Week at conceptart.org. This took me a while, like 2 or 3 days. I originally painted it at 1000 pixels wide and then boosted it to 4000px and added detail.

Full size and quality (2.3mb)

Indeed. It's a rather unfortunate condition. :(

Great stuff you have here, but I have a quick question for you.
Do you feel it's easier to add in details when the piece is larger compared to if you had a smaller piece?
See, what I do usually is just make the size of whatever it is I'm working on, and work from that. Usually I dont go too big either, but I've noticed how a lot of people go for the larger image and then resize it.

Oh, and while I'm at it, another question. I assume you use photoshop, but what kind of (personal favorite) brush(es) do you use and at what opacity?

I start with a smaller canvas, do some basic painting (blocking in shapes, etc.) and then if I feel the need for more detail, I upscale the canvas. I paint in a bit more detail then see if I want more detail, upscale, etc...

I usually use custom brushes that I make on the spot for the particular painting. The brush I use most is a hard edge circular brush with pen pressure control for opacity (with tablet).

Ah, I see.. hmm, that sounds like something I need to start doing :) Thanks

Wow, that's pretty cool, I never really got into the custom brush making... hmm... I figured you used the hard edged one though, just checking. Thanks ^_^

Haven't posted in a while...
This one isn't so good, but I recorded it so I might as well post it. If you don't watch the whole video, skip to the very end to see a little trick I tried out to make the painting look 3d. It came out better than I thought it would especially since I didn't plan on doing it while painting the whole thing on one layer... that was stupid ;)

These are amazing.
I've been thinking about getting into speedpainting myself for a bit.
One question: do you work traditional or digital, and what size canvas are you using?

That was a nice touch on the end of that last one, doing that little trick. It worked out brilliantly! All of your work is so amazing though, and I'd love to see more, especially the true speedpaintings on youtube.

I do traditional stuff occasionally when I'm in the mood. For these speedpaintings I usually use a pretty small canvas, no larger than 1000px in either dimension. For more detailed things I use larger canvases.

It actually is like 80% mouse. I used the tablet for the smoke and painting the face along with some grungy effects. The rest is done with mouse because it was just more convenient most of the time.

the speed paint things. doing most of it with a mouse would probably be a bitch.
:i dont have my tablet yet, i've been doing some flash things, an my wrist hurts so dam much!
:oh btw, whats the dimension of your wacom (or whichever tablet you have)?

My (crappy) first attempt at acrylics. I need a smaller brush... or bigger paper. This is in my itty bitty moleskine sketchbook.

I'm really loving acrylics because it lets me paint over the stuff I hate in my sketchbooks :D
