Another in my semi-abstract but representation speed painting series. The idea behind this one was to combine some sort of alien presence/technology with somewhat natural and organic structures..

Some custom brushes in Photoshop and Painter helped speed this one along....

Enjoy...I did making it:)

Looks like one David Levy's brushes that came with his Gnomon Workshop video?

Nothing wrong with that of course... I've used it too... just curious : )

Nice gallery BTW

This is beautiful. Love the spirals. It looks vaguely like shipwrecks on a small island in the middle of the ocean to me.

Love the cool colors and the little ribbons of lava running throughout.

I really like the palette you chose for this. This one frustrates me as much as I like it, mostly because I still haven't figured out how to do with digital brushes what I managed to do traditionally with October Country and Helix. Aaarrgh! *sigh* Sorry, Phil, it has been one of those days. :)
