More Photo studies

Well it's been a while since I've posted on here. My new job has kept me on my toes and I've been immersed in the glory of Breaking Bad. Anyway, here are a few photo studies concentrating on lighting and composition. As soon as I am fully confident with lighting, I will move onto texturing. Anyway, hope you like these.

Adventures With The Caretaker

Well it certainly has been a long while since I last updated. I'm currently interning online for an independent film company called Shadowlight Entertainment, and here are some exclusive finished backgrounds I have completed for an up and coming children's cartoon: The Adventures with The Caretaker! Keep your eyes peeled for the completed trailer coming real soon. 

Right now I am focussing on completing storyboards for the pilot episode, and designing the character Skukhill, one of the antagonists!

Moorland Speed Paint

And as promised ... the next speed paint churned out in a matter of hours. I paid a lot more attention to detail in this piece and I especially like the dull, muted colours. Compared to my earlier post ... well, its amazing how quickly you can dislike your own work.

Mountain Speed Paint

Downloaded some new brilliant new brushes from cghub, and decided to test them out with some quick speedpaints to test them out. One brush in particular, a "triangle brush," was particularly good at creating texture and allowed me to create mountain landscapes a lot easier, due to the expressive, quick technique.

This piece is the first speed-paint I created, which took roughly half an hour. I started off painting the piece in black and white then colouring it in with a different layer, set at "Overlay," which created a nice rich, textured look to the piece. Well, I certainly plan to do a lot more of these speed paints ... practice makes perfect ... as the saying goes.

The Well

New background to be included in my film. I intend to add this scene after the tree shot, as it shows the link between the transition of land and water. Unlike the tree scene, the colours are a lot more vibrant in this piece, which I may include in the tree shot.
