Hydrologic Flow Modulators

Been awhile, seems like I write that on just about every post here. I've actually got a few paintings I've been sitting on, this was of course one of those. They are the paintings I like parts of but can't seem to make them something I'm truly proud of; not a big deal but a little frustrating. Anyhow, I shouldn't let it hold me back from progress or posting.



Here is a link to the PSD if you'd like, you can follow the progress of the painting from beginning to end. The only layers I've collapsed are rendering layers, not that important.



There's nice warm weather up here, might become apparent in future paintings.
In the mean time, I'm off to scan in some sketches to post over here;

  9. hey Tom!

    These last few paintings have a nice washy color thing going on. Some really subtle transitions. I also like the treatment of the rocks in this one.

    those rocks....rock?

    ok, ok sorry....I couldn't resist

    I was at Disney in the summer of 08. I never saw him while I was there but his work kicks trash. Did you know him before Avalanche?

  19. Always interesting Tom. One question, what did you do on that top layer? Everything has moved slightly/the foreground guy disappeared altogether...is it a complete repaint or did you do something different (a slight blur perhaps?)

    I'm trying to replay your steps in my head but I cant solve that one! :)

  23. I couldn't help but laugh once I got all the way down to the bottom of your psd only to find more of your artwork. That is stinking brilliant. Really inspiring stuff.

    Crazy colors, great atmosphere. Yep. I'm a fan.

  26. Hey Tom, did you do a radial blur on this? I can't see it, but I feel like I'm being sucked into the picture. It's so trippy...
