Over these last few weeks I've really focused on pushing skills further, pushing past boundaries and doing different things. This is a rough, 'speed' painting/sketch, forcing myself to use a very limited palette range that I'm unaccustomed in using. I was tempted every step of the way to put more color into it but I wanted that 'realism' aspect of a cold morbid landscape in the image. The subject matter is from one of my current projects. It shows the strange contrast of a medieval time period and alien visitation. I guess what I like about the image is that feeling of 'out of placeness' whilst being seemingly normal. Looking at the image I see tons of things I want to change but I want it to stay loose and to just convey the concept rather than be polished into a fully developed illustration. Hopefully I'll have time to post up a few environment concepts and some more character concepts next.
