Cross Canyon by MeckanicalMind Cross Canyon by MeckanicalMind
Full view or fail.

An active mining facility. This one was 'the' piece for this weekend. I think it turned out pretty ok. I love colors... and future looking technology. This was loosely sketched out on paper. Then over that sketch i did a little grey comp, and then took some pictures of canyon like rock and cover the whole thing with them, then just started painting up shapes and stuff that worked well, using the color from the images. Though i set up the lighting on my own, no pictures for that. There is part of a facility somewhere in my facility, though its perspective was way off, so even with ';powerful' photoshop transformation tools i couldn't get it to work... so i just painted a new one over it.

Goodnight for now!


I need to stop drawing canyons.

That's a very long process for a product that appears entirely painted. How long did it take you? And how large was the canvas?

It took around 8 hours, canvas size was maybe 3k pixels across , its been a while.
