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
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.
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.
A process of the painting practice of Sir Galahad from Ready At Dawn’s The Order: 1886 in lovely gif form 🙂 followed by some details of the painting. And this brings us to the end of 2016 – how time flies! I hope everybody enjoys the celebrations over the New Year, and may your wishes all come true for 2017!
Ad continuum Sir Galahad from The Order 1886! And calling this complete, as I would like to paint something else now. I really enjoyed this painting practice because it gave me time to reflect on a lot of detail through blocks.
Elements added since previous post:
Embellishment on neckplate

More detail on the motto patch – ‘Post Tenebras Veritas‘ (After the darkness, the truth)
