Speedscape - 1 hour

I'm pretty happy with this one:

And a little step by step for what it's worth:

1 - I start with a few perspective lines on a white layer. I then add another layer on top of that where I block my values (in "multiply", so that I can still see the perspective lines). When I'm done, I merge the two layers. This step took 8 minutes on this painting:

2 - I create a new layer on top of my gray scale layer in "colorize". I block the basic colors. Five more minutes:

3 - I start noodeling. At the end of this step, I'm 20 minutes into the painting.

4 - More noodeling, that's the fun part! I used two brushes on that painting: a bamboo pen modified and the happy glow brush for the lights. 40 minutes:

And more details to finish... et voila! :)

60 minutes total

Always been a fan of Brad Pitt since his performance in "12 Monkeys" (the best still!).

I feel sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been working on a lot of projects that I can't show for professional reasons. But it will come eventually.
In the mid time, here is the new version of an illustration I still enjoy. It's fun sometimes to go back to former drawings and see all the things you can do better with the new knowledge you got.
