February Speed-paint Landscape Challenge!
EDIT: CHALLENGE STARTS TODAY!
Post finished works in the comments and it will be posted in this journal
With the success of the December challenge and being able to see the progress of the artists who contributed, it was definitely an incredible experience. So again I will be going to be doing another challenge, this time with the help of other artists. This months theme is Landscapes!
This is an area i am weak in and i would love to do this challenge with others who are looking to improve this part of their craft as well.

Besides showing part of this process through images which show the different stages of a piece, and

The dim light he had seen as he charged through the tunnel after the monster could now be identified: torches. Rows of mysteriously lit torches lined the walls of the huge cave. At its center was a substantially large labyrinth of mirrors.
He spotted the beast entering.
He spun his silver broadsword in his hand and hurried in behind it.
His garb was a simple blue and white crusader's leather with thick armored pads and reinforcing steel studs. Lightweight and flexible, but quite effective defense against blunt blows and – in a pinch – the slashing claws of the unholy spawn of the earth. All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
Right, left, forward, left, right he turned, always catching a glimpse of the beast's tail as he wove his way through the corridors. Every so often he sp
