revenant by clockbirds revenant by clockbirds
obligatory personal piece before i go back into commissions ^u^

no speedpaint for this one because i wanted to work without the pressure and experiment a little. actually, i'm thinking of taking a brief break from recording all of my pieces!
i definitely feel like i work differently when i have screen recording on vs. off. when it's on, there's a lot less experimentation and regular evaluation and a lot more of using techniques i already know to get the job done as quickly as possible.
while it definitely helped me a lot in streamlining my process, but i feel like it has stunted my artistic growth in the long run. so i really want to try drawing for a while without recording to push myself and improve my work more and more~

anyway, i hope people won't be too disappointed by this! it means my youtube channel might be a little quiet for a while.
but i'm definitely planning to get back into making videos and stuff once i feel like i've reached that next level of drawing that i'm happy with *u*
this piece accumulates a lot of the stuff i've learnt over the past year and should hopefully set a nice baseline to compare where i will be this time next year!

Do the art you want to do.  If this is the result of you NOT recording, then recording can get stuffed.

Super late to the party, but I think I should say this has been my favorite dragon-themed painting in the recent months. The textures everywhere in the piece just blow my mind - especially those pearly white scales and mane. Amazingly well done!

This is a stunning piece! Love the perspective and sense of scale here!!
While I understand why you don't want to record your drawings so you can feel more free to experiment, I think it might also be beneficial to record WHILE experimenting. You don't have to post them. They can just be for you to reflect on. Personally, I love watching a speedpaint video where you can see the artist changing their idea and trying out different angles, lighting, colors, ect. I think its more realistic when you get to see the art process go from rough concepts to final product and all the phases it went through to get to that point. But I fully understand if you don't want to post videos for a while. Those are just my thoughts on the matter. Can't wait to see some of the new art you come out with:) (Smile)

You're so good with scene composition. In this one, specially, the composition allows for the massive scale of the dragons to slowly sink in as my eyes ran over their bodies, then the rock formations, the birds and finally the boat in the corner. That made the picture as a whole incredibly striking, specially on the second glance. Plus the soft palette as usual helps establish this ethereal, mythical atmosphere you'd expect to see in a dream. You really have a beautiful way to paint fantasy scenarios.

It reminds me of those summon-the-rain rituals old Chinese believed in. About getting two dragons to fight in order to bring the rain.
