Dreams are as portals… flat visions of mystic places… fragments bound below my surface…
But I can write dreams!
They flow from me… inscribed yet now unbound… I touch them… and they are real…
And they are real!

Quick speed painting, about 20 minutes.

When I can find the time I have been experimenting with a style that I fell into whilst developing my Fissure print. I wanted to see how it translated to a painted piece.
Honestly I’m actually pretty happy with how this experiment turned out and I definitely plan to so more pieces like this in the future.

I apologize for the lack of updates lately. I started a new job about three months back now and my free time has been scarce to non existent. However today I finally found some time to start something new and figured I would post a work in progress shot with a small update on why there have been no updates lately.
Unfortunately by the time my weekend comes around (which falls in the center of the week for me) I find myself fatigued and all I want to do is sit and play Team Fortress 2 or Skyrim. But I have been trying to break out of that routine for the last couple of weeks and try getting back into doing something creative.

I had planned on returning to the First Discovery speed painting later after working on some other ideas. But I found myself relaunching it in Photoshop and spending the last two days working on it almost constantly.
Whilst I was working on the speed painting version, I had the idea of it being possibly the first in a series. With several other pieces perhaps containing some kind of narrative regarding this triangle gates that are depicted.
So I took the first one further and built upon it. I think I have finally reached a point where I feel it is done. I find it difficult to know when I’m at that point. I’m sure others will look at my work and go “well I would have done this and changed that”. To a degree I can see where I can continue to add and refine elements. But I know from working with oil paints in the past it is easy to go to far and the piece can end up looking over worked, cluttered. The focus of the piece starts to get lost.
So in the end I make the decision, sometimes it sticks and sometimes I continue to tweak a few things. In the end it is my work, people will either like it hate it. I do it because I enjoy making something so if I am happy with the result then I believe it was time worth spent.
The triangle motif however, is overplayed. I’m not sure how many pieces will be in this series (I’m thinking three at this point) but when I’m done I think I will move on to something new. I wanted the triangle elements to remain in this piece because I wanted it to have kind of connection to the more design orientated pieces of the “retro” stuff.
Print is avaiable for those interested: First Discovery Print

Been a while since I’ve updated. Been busy working on other 3D related projects.
20 minutes speed painting in Photoshop. Will most likely revisit this one again later and fine tune it.

A print is available on the store for this one for those who are interested.
