Digital painting based on this wonderful photograph by *carlzon :iconcarlzon:

This is my most technical, and hence ambitious, painting yet. The ref photo has a number of light sources so the colour graduations are subtle and varied which really tested my eye for colour.

And I worked directly with colour - something I very rarely do - but this piece demanded colour from the very beginning.

Again, huge thanks to Bernt for allowing me to use his photograph as a reference. :aww:

There's absolutely no reason why you shouldn't be able to paint something like this!

It just takes practice. Lots of practice... :faint:

The secret is layering. If you look at the WIP stages, it starts off very rough and then the detail & colour is built up gradually. Check out the video tutorials of the Big Red Speedpaint. There's a lot of detail in there, or rather there *appears* to be more detail.

Glad you like it. :aww:
