Full view is duty!

Finally, here it is; my most recent inceptionism painting and addition to the Ancient Kaiju Project.
It took quite over 40 hours to finish and it was lots of fun, quite a short holiday working in this wonderful work from Heinrich Böhmer.
This work is from around 1890-1927 and in public domain.

In the upcoming book on composition techniques   I will go into more detail about how I added upon the great material of Böhmer instead of subtracting from it. There was a lot of learning and analysis necessary, but I believe it will pay off in the end.

There will probably be a class on Skillshare on how to create such a painting for educational purposes yourself. Stay tuned on that one.

There is a Process GIF that shows the quantity of compositional tools as layover, that suggests how Böhmer created his awesome art and how I built upon that - as patron you can view or download it here:…
Note: this is different and more priceless than the process development below...

Below are some close ups and the process of the painting:

By working on this, I built a fantastical oil-painting brush. Have to tweak it some more, but when finished I´ll release it to my patreon - reason enough to join me;)

Lots of awesomness going on as you can see, hope you have a nice time as well!
