The Sentinel by memod The Sentinel by memod
Hehe, once again a speedpainting turned into something more.....but it took way too long, I didn't get to work on it lately, because school and other things were sort of eating up my time, but now I am finally done. and I think I am quite satisfied with it, got a decent amount of detail into this and quite enjoyed the painting process. except for the bridge. and the stairs. oh, the rocks were quite an effort, too. and the.... :slow:

Original 1 hour speedpainting: [link]
100% detail shots: [link]
original reference picture:

And here is the piece that ¢mynti has come up with, after spending some more time on her speedpainting, too: [link]

I hope you enjoy it, as usual, the print will be up soon! :aww:
Daniel :heart:

This has a mythic/medieval feel to it... as if there is much more going on than what the eye sees. Looks great. : )

Well I'm not qualified to give a critique but I know what I like and I like this. It oddly reminds me of the forest at home in Alberta which at night has a magical quality to it and this picture makes me remember that.

Well it's just as useful when someone tells me what they like, so don't worry :nod: I'm certainly glad that you like it...forests can have something truly magical indeed. Only yesterday I was walking through one with the sunlight streaming down through the leaves...the colours were simply beautiful :aww:

ooh, how eerie!
You know, the detail you put into your work - even this 'speedpainting' really gets me. I'm so impatient when I paint usually, but have to say after looking through your pieces I will certainly be trying harder to try and come close to the effects you get - there's always such a potent atmosphere! :)

:iconmemod:
memod Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009  Professional
Wow, thanks a lot! :cuddle: Hehe, the speedpainting was just the initial step, but yeah, it lays a lot of the foundation for the later piece. And it is quite fun, because you can be loose and explore and deviate from the reference if you want.
But it certainly pays off to put more time into something. I quite enjoy seeing how it all comes together :D I think painting actually has taught me a lot of patience :aww:

But most of all, enjoy what you do! :hug:

This is incredible. This isn't new to you of course, I'm sure else has already told you how amazing this is.
But let me just mention the great lighting you did. Really brings the place alive. And it feels so nostalgic... I would definitely want to be there =)
Great job!
