Fight the Giant, part 1

Started on a new fantasy illustration piece this week. I don't plan on spending as long on this one as I did for the Artifact. I wanted to start out as a 10-hour speedpainting, but as usual I've gotten caught up in some details. I think I need to start forcing myself to meet a certain deadline and once it's there, the project is finished and I'm not allowed to continue it. Does that make sense?

New (sort of) abstract piece

I just updated a digital 3D abstract composition that I had worked on a few years ago. I really liked this one and wanted to print it in large format, but my original render was only like 4000 pixels wide. So I rendered a new image at over 12,000 px and I plan on printing it on Epson canvas. If I can get that to work. The last attempt was a disaster and I had to RMA my Epson R1900 after wasting an entire roll. It's a long story.

At any rate I figured as long as I was rendering this one again I might try a different approach to some shape and texture overlays.
