45 min SP - 'Unknown'

Hey there eveybody,

The work I am currently creating under NDA is very neat, clean and a little sterile, so when I get the odd hour to paint it tends to be pretty rough and ready "Speedpaint" style images. This one is so impulsive that I've named it "Unknown" as it is quite an odd image for me.

Anyway, the image took about 45 minutes of random brush strokes, colour tinting and mucking about, I hope you like it!

Original res 3500 pixels (high)
Painted in PS CS3
Intous 3 Tablet

This is actually inspiring! I could write a scene in a sci-fi novel that would describe this setting.
that is quite insane for 45 minutes, very nice

wow, I love how nice it looks---I love how concept art is so detailed and wonderful, yet as long as you use your strokes well, can be so simple and fast---it must take practice to know how to use your brushes effectively :).

Jesus christ you really have some great ideas. This looks exactly what i imagine the powerful enemy emporer or general to have their throne inside of.

It looks really omninous and threatening. In the middle of what could be an old or freshly created battlefield its just a really amazing and even scary in some ways. added it to favorites!

Great piece, really stands out from a lot of other Speed paints on deviantart.

Did this start out as a drawing, or was it spontaneous,also was it a black canvas or did you have a picture for painting on top of using textures and colour? :)

Actually that rough edge along with the great lighting is what i love in your images. A painting is not a photograph, and should not try to become one. I think this hyperrealism trend in movies and games is the wrong direction. With leaving things a little blurred or not completely worked out in a painting you leave that for the viewer to imagine, and in that make a far stronger impression. Realism, with all its neat and clean details is for the eyes, painting is for the heart
I could not agree more :)

Amazing job, really, one of those I-want-to-munch-on-your-brain kind of works... :)

I reckon the river at the bottom just balances the whole piece with a smiggen of yellow and blue
