Farthest Outpost

Started as a speed painting, trying out a new process to learn more and get quicker. Worried more about jumping into the flow and being dynamic and loose at first instead of over-designing things and getting too tight.

Didn't clock in at speed paint time, somewhere between 10 and 15 hours, but it's still quicker than my normal paintings. I'm sure I'll get faster as I practice more. I really enjoyed the change of pace and process.

Also, some of you might recognize the vehicle. It's based off of one of ~teemunkle's designs. Check him out.


Thanks to `adonihs for the input and help, and =CaelestisTrucido for the continued support. Also, big thanks to *AndreeWallin for convincing me to get back into speedies.

Silent Cartographer, new and improved!

Query: why is there almost always a giant storm spot whenever people paint a gas giant? Is it because it's a photo of Jupiter that's been transformed or force of habit in referencing our largest solar body short of the sun?

Haha, I think it's probably because artists are always looking to add visual interest to things, and it's an easy way to put something extra that helps tell a story or give a better sense of scale.
