I wanted to paint explorers entering an abandoned sci fi city somewhere underground.

I'm not sure if I got it or not :)! But time's up!

I can't figure out how you make that sharp and iridescencent-looking texture.

This is pic is really odd and crazy !! It's looks a bit creepy and chaotic, but the colours are beautiful !! I like how you focus the (fex) light on the men, while all the rest is in the gloom of abandon^^

Thanks - it is creepy and chaotic! I think maybe my mind was in a chaotic state when I was working on this one :)

I've been enjoying your recent speed paintings, very interesting stuff. THumbs up man

Thanks! Some of them are definitely more (or less!)successful than others, but I'm going to keep hammering away at it :D

Interesting and surreal. Has an almost abstract feeling to it that works... but that's what speed painting's all about... hitting a concept and riding that sucker to the bailout point. I really have to learn this! ;)

I know the feeling :D!

It's fun, but you never know what you're going to get - you just have to roll with it until you come up with something, crash and burn, or run out of time :D

All too familiar with the crash and burn... going for the run out of time though. :eager:

Interesting, odd effects but real cool, i am not an art major or anything but i think its a bit cluttered in cretin points its kinda hard to tell whats going on but i think that's a strong point to this work because it makes the eye wander.

It really is a bit chaotic and a little hard to tell what everything is. That seems to be a side effect of this approach I'm trying at the moment - it's sometimes difficult to control the outcome :). Probably this is really a "sketch" or a "study" for something more deliberate - if I can find the time to do the final :D!
