Ice, Ice baybehh....

Here is a new painting I started on today. I'd say this is about 2.5 hours of painting, probably at it's 30% mark. Before that I had done at least 10 thumbnails before I came up with a composition I was satisfied with. The purpose of this assignment is to illustrate "The Castle of the Great Winter Lord". We also had the option of illustrating a treehouse, an abandoned battle ship, an underwater sea lab, etc., but I decided to go with the winter castle. Although I'm still a slow painter (speed will only come with more practice!!) I'm having a lot of fun with it so far. Especially since I'm starting to get a little more comfortable with corel painter. I'll update later on in the week with more progress shots.



  1. Looks pretty sweet! Can't wait to see the finished piece :)

  2. aw thanks celina! me too, i'm curious to find out what it will look like haha.
