Sketch for the day. Jungles are hard to paint sometimes. Especially the subtle lighting.
Note to self: I gotta throw in some character designs next time.

Pirates of the Carribean theme

My teacher and friend, Jung told me that it's better to understand how to create a mattepainting because it'll be easier to go back and speedpaint without having trouble with lighting and perspective. I was watching Pirates of the Carribean this afternoon and somehow while I was creating a composition, it happened to turn out just like it. lol


P.S. I don't know if it's my monitor's calibration for my both my PC and Mac, but it seems a lot brighter on PC than Mac. The darks is totally washed out.

Note: Added ClustrMaps today.

Forest Walk

I had the urge to do a quick speedie for about 5hrs. I was reading a small article based on "Lewis and Clark Expedition." It was quite intriguing that the expedition was to learn more about the Northwest's natural resources, inhabitants, and possibilities for settlement and that Lewis and Clark were not the first explorers to travel west. They did not achieve their primary objective of finding a waterway across North America. For this, I thought it'll be pretty cool to come up with some exploration or an adventure in an abadoned sacred forest.
