Artwork Description

Hi, me again here Laughing out loud --
this speedpainting took a bit longer than I anticipated, about 8 hours or so. Mostly time was consumed by that little flying thing who just couldn't accept the wing choices I tried to offer him. But now he's ok with them and flying happily.. hehe --
This image came out as a simple building and perspective practise, but then I thought it would also be a nice illo for my (if it ever finishes) book. So, this place is called "Sirad Nox", a vast and terrifying city with enormous walls surrounding it. It's risen from underground here and takes it's first glimpse of sunlight, only to diminish it in an instant to grey and cold in it's vast shadow.

Thanks Matt.. I know what you're saying.. it really is something very different than what I've done before. I guess speedpainting has been some sort of boogeyman for me and never quite had the guts to really let go of all planning and stuff. This is an amazing feeling to see that an image can be born in a few hours or even in minutes if I practise some more. Just have to relax and go for it Laughing out loud -- thank you for your complement, it made me extremely happy! --

Hi Kirsi,

I really like this one. Some amazing things can happen when you speed paint and that's definitely what has happened here. Fantastic.

thanks Nathan for the interest =) --
the writing process is slow, but I think it's like a marathon and it's all worth it in the end. Hope the story is ready for publishing in a year.
