More speed practice....

Practicing speed these days. On this one I tried to push my speed and scetching abilities. Started out with loose, cloudy brushes, and chiseled shapes out of that. Didnt know what i was going for in the beginning. The bottom one is after 2 hectic hours, where my goal was to establish the general feel, comp and mood, wothout details. The top one is where I went into more of a 'chillaxed' mode, and just added and refined details at my own leisure. What palette do you like the most, btw? When I went back and looked at the 2 hour one, I sort of liked how cold and dark it looks, as compared to the refined one.
       
'Nother one. This one was sloow though : (

I like the warm glow on the upper part of your refined version, but I prefer the palette in the foreground water in the 2-hour one. You might get more of that dark mood if that water in the refined one wasn't so rich in green. anyways, nice job Johan, hope to see you around!

Johan, these are seriously impressive. I especially love the one on the bottom, you have a great eye for color.

We should go out sketching sometime

Thanks folks!

That chain brush came to great use on the viking fellow by the way, Justin. ; )

And yeah, a sketching trip should be done! That would be fun.

Johan; the king of armor!lol. These are sweetness. As for palette i like the cooler one. The one with green water could be more muted.
