Speedpaint Sunday 53

I hope you’ve been enjoying the less technical and more (hopefully) entertaining prose-based posts this week, but Speedpaint Sundays will probably still be rife with technicalities.

I found myself working on this while setting up my new desktop (it took a lot longer than I thought it would to get things set up satisfactorily, and a daunting number of things need to be installed, migrated and otherwise implemented), so while I technically was working on this for awhile, the total amount of time spent paying attention to it is probably not as much as other pieces in this category.

(That’s also the reason that there’s no progress pictures, just the final)

Interesting facts about this: My laptop’s display was inadvertently set to 16-bit colors earlier this week (I was testing the screen, which arrived before the tower), and I didn’t realize it. So, while I was painting, all my soft-edged brushes looked horribly, horribly WRONG, and I didn’t know what to do about that until I almost randomly decided to check the resolution.

Also, the shading (what little there is) is actually blue, instead of grey; I’ve been reading about color theory lately. I got a little caught up with opacity and the color troubles I mentioned before, otherwise I probably would have tried to build up levels of darkness instead of the fairly uniform shadowing I have here.

Anyhow, that’s it for now; I’m going to see what else I can get set up before turning in for the night.
