The first matte painting i tried to make. Here I used royalty free images from CGtextures.com to make the mountains and the sky.
Then painted with basic black and white colours the castle/city, added wall textures over them and finaly made overly colouring, clouds and lighting with brushes,.
Overall time: 4 hours with Gimp and Krita
Hovercraft is a recreation of an artwork. i used a Youtube video to make it just for practice..
Took me 2-3 hours to complete it with Krita and Gimp.
Here is the video:
This is a speed painting made completely in Krita 2.8 in Ubuntu Linux.
it took 2 to 3 hours to complete. Solid brushes, freehand selections made the rocks. blur was used to achieve the depth of field. Side rocks blocks the eye to go away from the painting. it is a bit blurry in some places that should be more detailed. hope you like it.
