SPEEDPAINT - Swamp by tgw-Raptor SPEEDPAINT - Swamp by tgw-Raptor
Speedpaint - 3hours. I've not had time for anything complex because i am in the last days my "Bachelor of Art" degree.
I dont want to be out of practice, so I am going to do some of them in my spare hours in the next time.

We are going to use that as a story background setting in our current game which we are developing at the moment. We chose this swampworld as the birthplace of one of our alien races. For more information visit www.die-game.com


Photoshop CS2, 3000*1500

First of all, this is EPICNESS.

I'm so amazed when it comes to how this thing is done. First of all, I'm pretty impressed with how you did the trees and the vines and the algae mats. The shading is also epic, and the overall greatness of this piece leaves me speechless.

How you visualized this drawing is what impressed me. It looks something like a fairytale swamp where the marsh trolls dwell. I bet you worked hard on this thing. It's dope.

Regarding technique and visual impact, they go hand-in-hand. Better technique, more power and impression. As you can see, everything is nicely done. Regarding how you colored the water, it looks a bit cloudy but it's kinda easy to fix. The entire piece would be perfect for a storybook cover, because the impression of it will leave viewers speechless!

Great job!

I've been practicing. It's tough for me to create such lighting with just colors. I find myself using the dodge/burn tool all the time

make a tutorial please :)
and thanks for answering

wow, I love the mood of this, and the environment, even though this is a speed paint it feels very detailed and you can really get a sense for the place. Wonderful job! I am always in awe for people that can be creative and come up with great backgrounds. I am more of a creature character designer, and need practice on backgrounds. I am starting a graphic novel at some time where I could use talent like yours! Great work!

I love the use of all the different greems and swampy colours you used to create this image. I also enjoy your use of brushing with the colours to create a rough but effective look of the given scenario.

Very nice, the colors all blend together well to create the swampy dark atmosphere that it looks like you were going. I'm sure these are things you've heard before but I figured you hadn't heard it from me yet so might as well post it.
