“Flooded Cave” – environment of the week practice. I’m quite satisfied with this one – at least for now!
Again, I struggled a lot with the usual things, composition, rendering, colors, perspective, depth – but most of all I just don’t know how to push my “finished” pieces a bit more to a polished and professional level. But how does one practice edge control and detailing? I’ll just keep going, because I strongly feel like “practice” is the answer, as always.
Also, in addition, here is a small concept I am really stuck with: I feel like I’m slowly improving with abstract environments/landscape painting, but I have no idea how to practice inudstrial design like stuff (vehicles, machinery, scifi), or just normal human influenced environments like cities. I read loads of perspective books, I bought and watched video tutorials, but I just don’t know how to apply the knowledge. Any ideas, or simple exercises to practice this kind of stuff? Everything I try to take further than a fast concept turns out like a ugly mess.
