Virtual Plein Air – Higashiōsaka, Japan

A nice break in-between working on Project Samurai and some other work, I like to do some spitpaints or Virtual Plein Air from time-to-time. This one was no exception – in this case, I wanted to see how much I could put in in an hour or two as a pre-sleep painting^^ so it was a test to see how much I can observe and convey, in both blocks of colour, as well as details if time allows.

On a side note, I’m doing some cleanup of tags & categories because they’ve been bugging me for ages, so hopefully there will be a cleaner and more efficient navigation at some point in the near future! ٩(◕‿◕。)۶

Inner Citadel – Colour and Amendments

So from the previous sketch of Project Samurai’s Inner Citadel, I’ve made some improvements to the painting and added colour – wahey! 🙂

With the current work I’ve been doing in the background (more news on that will be coming soon), I’ve gotten into Cyberpunk and Futuristic landscapes quite a bit, so it seemed natural to create something along those lines, and darn it, it was so fun to do.

Inner Citadel – Sketch

Sketch before bed – starting to work on Project Samurai a bit after a hiatus to work on other paintings. Which is quite nice as it brings a new perspective to it after being away from the project. 

Feeling refreshed and ready to go 💪

Tokyo Subway/Kaonashi Densha

Happy New Year! Hope everybody has enjoyed their seasonal celebrations.

Beginning the new year with a colour study of a wonderful photo taken by Shuji Hiramatsu of the Tokyo Subway…with a small addition 😉 I couldn’t resist adding the tram featured in Studio Ghibli movies into the mix.
