Jungle Sniper by dustycrosley Jungle Sniper by dustycrosley
Another speed paint I did using the "destroy a stock photo method". This technique is lots of fun!

Here is the photo I started with: [link]

looks really cool, you really captured a certain feeling. There is something that gives it a slightly industrial look though, I think it might be the hard outlines of the trees (lack of texture in the line) and the white highlights on the log in the front. Still looks really cool though! As I said the atmosphere is sweet. :)

Thanks man! Ya, the brushes I used gave the trees that effect, but the more I looked at, I started to like it!

Oh, I remember! You showed me that on the mech monster one, I believe. Really weird practice.

Concept artists come up with the weirdest things!

Ya it's different, but it really exercises your mind to see shape in the random chaos. This may sound silly, but it is really a "eureka" moment when you find a shape in all that mess. Then the process just takes off in high gear from there. :)

Yeah, I'd imagine there's that feeling of, "Oh, finally" once you've gotten something. I'd try it, but I'm just not cut out for it. I'll stick to traditional!

Nothing wrong with the traditional arts my friend! I need to get back to doing some more traditional stuff when I get time. I have a whole crap load of pencil sketches in my sketchbook I need to scan and throw on here one day.
