I'll keep painting winter scenes until it finally snows :I

Here's something in between a sketch and an actual painting, trying to find a way to be quicker but not lose track of what I'm doing and not sacrifice too much accuracy for speed. Took about 4 hours, all from imagination.

Do check out my blog too. [link]

Insane amount of detail in just 4 hours. I can only wish for such a high detail-time ratio :S. I wish you did some compressed-time videos of your process to see some of your tricks.

Your brain... it must be beautiful to live in it, if you can make such scenery from imagination, so detailed. ;_; I want a brain like that.

I have... imagination for situations/feelings/expressions but CRAPTASTIC scene-creating imagination. :I It's like there's thick fog all over my mind.

The reflection of the trees & sky on the car windshield and the glass windows of the center building are just amazing. Really gives the image a feeling of total immersion!
