Speed paint while waiting to start my next project.

I could say the same about your work, just keeps getting and better. :) ... of course, it was already great to begin with. :p

I'm the same, busy busy. I've been working on a few freelance projects to earn a bit of extra cash and get some practice working to deadlines, etc.

Well worth the money but if you have easier access to traditional methods such as pencil, paper and paints they work just as well. :)

Why does this make me think of Prometheus? IDK...but it did! Either way, really nice, cool atmospheric piece!

Even though I haven't seen it yet (releases in Japan late August), it was definitely on my mind as I was painting this. The original sketch even had the 'gift' as fire to represent Prometheus stealing it from the gods. :)

Hah, a nice touch. Well its great either way. As to the movie, dont get too hyped up and you wont be disappointed. But as creative artist I think you'll appreciate its environments and multiple detailed elements. Keep up the nice work.

I couldn't at first either... the more you paint, the more you learn what you need to paint and what you don't. Like anything else, it just takes practice, patience and hard work. ;)
