Speedpainting 'Hidden City'

Hello! :)

It is amazing what a little time and inclination can do for ones creativity - I've managed to do 3 images in the last 3 lunchtimes (with a little tinkering at night). This one is different again - "Junker barges bring God knows what to God knows where"

This image took a couple of hours or so again - probably about 120-130 mins, just because I was messing with the atmosphere etc – kinda fun to paint, I love the idea of old boat like craft that defy gravity, but somehow need sails and smoke pluming engines to move about! :D

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

Who knows when I'll get chance to sketch again! :)

I love the atmosphere in this one. The sky-boats are pretty cool.

I have both of your books (Bold visions and 100 ways...)and am very happy to say that they have helped me more than I could possibly relate. Thanks so much for putting forth the effort. I grab them when I'm stuck and they always help me come out the other side with a smile! BTW> I use that textured brush you describe every day! Best Wishes!

You are very kind :) thank you so much for your lovely words! :)

It's blurry and vivid at the same time.

Lemme ask you this, Did you paint the big ship on the left as it is, or did you blur it later with a blur filter? :)
