I dig painting underwater scenes. Combined with icebergs, even better! For the current EOW, took about 5 h I think. I think the composition could use work, something seems to be lacking. The small sub might be out of place, killing the balance?
I start almost everyday with a speed paint to warm up the wacom board. I often film these speedies, to keep track on my process and see what I am doing right/wrong. I thought I might wanna start share these with you.
These are SPEED paints. I have a timer I set for 20 min, so most of my speed paints are around 20 min. If a speed paint takes more than 1 hour, I don't think it's a speed paint anymore, then it's an illustration.
I sometimes use my speed paints as start ups for other work, and it's kind of sweet to have a huge folder with "sketches" to choose and pick from if you're running low on ideas some times.
also, there are always things you see as soon as the time is up, that you realize you should have done different, and there are always loads of stuff you miss or do wrong. But the important thing is just to nail something, a feeling and basic design in 20 min. This one is done in 23 min.

Neo-Paris 2084, Augmented reality and memory manipulation have taken control of peoples’ lives. You can now digitize, buy, sell or trade your own personal memories. The last remainders of intimacy have been swept away, in what appears to be a simple extension of the development of social networks and geolocation at the beginning of the 21st century. The “surveillance society” has been accepted by the citizens themselves, in exchange for a few technological benefits. It is a reality that no one even thinks of challenging anymore. This memory-based economy gives an immense yet uncontrollable power to a handful of people…
Here is a treat, this is the E.D.G.E Primary Command Centre located in the mega city CORE. It's where E.D.G.E keeps track of all it's assets on Earth and in orbit. This is part of a single page spread right out of the first issue of Telikos Protocol.
This one took me the better part of a day

This large fat looking thing is the He3 freighter, it transports large quantities of Helium 3 over huge distances, distances where the normal large transports can't go. It can travel much faster and farther than the other transports. There are a few of them dotted around the surface each line has 3 large depots along the way where it will be loaded up with more He3 containers.
Here is the latest illustration for the game Novus Aeterno, it depicts a huge open area where masses of troops are listening to what is probably a very uplifting and motivating speech about universal domination and all that jazz. In the distance there are several dreadnought class ships but they are too big so most of them are in the clouds. not a great view from up there.
