Fog in the Dawn

This was one of the last assignments I did for James Paick's online masterclass. It was a very enriching experience. A great thanks to James for sharing his precious knowledge and also a special thanks to my father for convincing me to take the class. Always learning...

The Prize

Another work for James Paick's masterclass. It's in the same alignment as my previous two paintings. However, this time I wanted to retain a more painterly look. An evil army returning home with their "prize"...the rest is up to your imagination.

Took one of the thumbnail sketches and developed it into a more polished concept.

And even more sketches...

More sketches...but I think now it's enough! Next step will be to develop one of them (out of the castle/ruins/Scotland batch).

More sketches...

Here are some more sketches. Each of these took me longer to do compared to the previous group of thumbnail sketches.

Environment Sketches

Here's a bunch of environment sketches done for James Paick's online masterclass. Each set of 4 took me between 90 min and 120 min to complete. It's a very good exercise in trying to focus on the essential parts of the image and not getting lost in details. I still have a lot to learn, but it's a very entertaining and fun process.

Same inspiration as my previous painting: monsteries in Greece.
