Everlasting by Skysealer Everlasting by Skysealer
Speed paint commission for doraneirok!
References were used for the mountains (photographs taken by Doran) but I made liberties to play around with the colors so it's very exaggerated. Then again everything in my speed paints usually are, ah! :>

You can see the color tests: [link]

Tools: Photoshop CS, Wacom Intuos 3
Time: A few hours total
Music: Archangel album (Two Steps from Hell)

I love the colors and the blending, and actually got hit with a strong face punch of nostalgia. Reminds me of Spyro the Dragon...lol but all grown up. Great job, and keep up the motivation.

The Archangel album is fantastic. I liked Invincible too, but Archangel had more of my favourite tracks on it. TSFH always seem to churn out the best music, in my opinion. Though I like Audiomachine and Epic Score as well.

I love the way you draw wings; it's irritating how a lot of people tend to do them in that style where the membrane is only attached to the wing limbs. I also love how you always get the character to be a part of the background. Some people (like me) end up focusing just on the characters or others end up having the characters fade into the scenery. You're one of the few artists I watch that have that balance.

XD :D XD

I like the crazy, exaggerated colors in the sky, and the textures in the clouds. This is a really fun piece of art. :D

I've noticed a lot of people are speed painting in Photoshop. Is there a certain brush you use? How do you "paint" in PS?
