Heya I'll start this evening already I think Those references are great material.
One question, how long should we take for each one? Usually I do 30 min/45 min sessions, and I guess that should be enough. If not, let us know.
how big do you normally paint your study's?
good one algebra! really nice colours, one thing though, the background gradient looks too "pure" atm...i suggest throwing some purple-ish hues in there
here's one i did, i looked too deep into the forms/details and neglected to break down the colours by the time i realised it was already too late...i guess you could call this one a bit of a failure...
UPDATE: second piece done! sorry about not really meeting the deadline jens been busy finishing LMS and reinstalling the OS....I'll try to do a few more by tomorrow... I like this one a lot more than my first attempt
UPDATE2: here's another, yeah im going down them in order...

Allright, here's my first. Me ego took a hell of a beating in the process, as I really struggled getting the colors right in this one. I always tend to make the light side too yellow with this type of rock and lighting, while it should be more pink I think (?). Also, the shadow side of the rock seems to be very light as well to me somehow. Anyway, I got sort of lost and it took me way too long
For the next one I'll try one that looks less difficult...
Edit: added the last two. I'm much happier with the 2nd than with the rest. In the last one I lost a bit of saturation on the rocks somehow, but I spend a little more time on getting the clouds right as someone commented on them in the 2nd one in my SB...hmm just saw that the trees in the foreground on the last one look like they're doing the hundred mile per hour, hadn't spotted that on my other monitor. Guess I should fiddle a bit with my brush settings there.

algebra: duude that last one kicks major ass. almost photorealistic. awesome job!!
so here we go. the first two studies. I'm really not happy with these ones, ganna do a lot more.
Added the island study. Still really not happy with that one...
Added the alaska-mountains. think its slowly getting better
Added the dune. Yeah finally a big step into the right direction....hopefully. screwed up the proportions but teh colors got quite nice...hopefully
hmm think that 4.0 updates screw up my attachments (again....), just klick the link
Edit: added the orange mountains. just a quick color block in, didn'T want to get lost in details to make it read easily

can i JOINS your CLAESSENS, JENS?
Found some time to do a second one. I hope I have time to do more than three, I hate sticking to the bare minimum. Just another two weeks without sleep and things will become much easier for a while
You seem to have started something I'll try to do another one before tuesday, but can't promise anything I'm afraid. Busy busy busy
And the last one, I found some time this morning before getting back to my other projects
Tried not to lose myself in the details too much this time, but it turned out to be quite a complicated photo to speedpaint. Lots of different colors and surfaces and directions and everything...took me about 45 min/1 hour. The thumbnail works for me, but anything bigger starts looking off and wrong to me
Hmm I just found out how to attach and embed images properly using the paperclip thing
Not sure if I am allowed to ask questions in this thread; but here goes...
algebra: The last image, the one with the snow covered mountains, did you use the liquefy tool to create that watery effect? + how long did it take you to create that scene the second time?
BOOM! Great topic, you gave me something to look forward too
I'm currently in sort of the same position, couple of projects coming to an end that eat all my free time away Will try to get something done this thursday hopefully. As the focus is the explosion here, may we play around a bit with the surroundings?
haha, pretty awesome new assignment. I have no idea how to start that one, woot
Finally started on my explosion
30 minutes or so in it at the moment, I tried to get a solid base first. I think I'll jump to some different brushes now and start getting some details and clear edges and stuff in there.
By the way Jens, when will you be putting up the critiques on assignment 1?
