Storm at Sea (fixed)

After posting the original, I noticed a glaring error–the kind of mistake you make when you’ve stayed up late painting instead of going to bed. The mast was on the wrong side of the sails! So, I fixed it. I also touched up the waves a bit. Again, the colour was punched up a bit using my gmic filter, "60’s Cinema FX" set to "Carey Grant"

This is a quick 1 hour speedpainting of a couple of ships stuck in a storm. I’ve always wanted to paint one of these pictures, and I think this is a theme I’m likely to revisit as my skills improve. I painted it in the gimp with my wacom, punching the colour up a touch using my gmic filter "60s cinema fx" set to "Carey Grant."

This started out as a speed painting, but the further I got into it, the longer it took. What you see is about 4 hours of tweaking, fiddling, and adjusting. Painted in the Gimp using "Medal of Honor: Frontline" ps2 game cover as reference. I tweaked the grain and colour a bit, using GMIC and my 60’s Cinema FX set to "Carey Grant"

I wasn’t pleased with my previous attempt at the Hulk. This time, I opted to work with a reference shot. It was all freehand in the Gimp, taking about 2 hours total. I punched up the colour a bit using my "Modern Cinema FX" filter in G’MIC.
