View Full Version : Garage Inc.

Speed painting made with ArtRage. In some distant future a vehicle (or part of a vehicle?) goes back to the garage for some repair operations. It started as a quite rough sketch but I wanted to push a bit of detail on it, while keeping it "speedy".

I painted it for the little pdf I'm writing about speed painting and ArtRage, so the main steps of the painting will be shown there with some hopefully interesting comments! :)

Thanks for watching, I hope you like it -- keep painting & enjoying creativity! :)

Wow, Andrea-this is simply fantastic. Your style is awesome. Great talent!:)

Wow, I agree with Alexandra this is awesome.

02-15-2010, 09:45 PM
I agree too, its brilliant:)

Thanks so much Alexandara, Valerie and coops :)

If this is a speedy painting, dear Andrea, either You're possessed or You should reveal us some of Your tricks, apart Your immense talent which can hardly be teached or a commodity ...

Thanks Caesar, you are really too kind, I'm just trying to learn and improve -- sometimes things are working, sometimes they are not -- I hope in the end I can keep growing as an artist, that's all that matters :)

I spent kinda 3h on it, so I don't know if I can still call it "speed painting" -- but I was not concentrated and I lost a looot of time, so I guess I could have painted it in less time if doing only that and not keeping stopping for coffee, for playing guitar, for talking on skype, for smoking a a cigar and so on :D

I don't think I have any trick I can reveal, since I am just learning myself, but I almost finished a little pdf and I hope you'll all enjoy reading it and find it interesting :)

Very incredible work, particularly for a short span of time, and, whatever that machine is--I want one!

Andrea, I *WANT* that pdf! :D:D:D

Dear Andrea, Beautifully done!!!, like Edward Scissorhands workshop, sort of has a mechanical whale look to it, just wonderful!:)

@Rob in Denver, @IrishRose, @uuderzo, @Lee : thanks a lot!

@uuderzo : I hope you won't be disappointed! It's really a simple pdf, nothing special. I'm trying to keep the size small but it's not finished and it's already 4,17mb (and 14pages). I think to add 2 or 3 more pages and then it's done. I could not imagine it was going to take so much time, when I started thinking of it! :P The first idea I had was to put 2 "step by step" projects there but I think in this one I'll end up putting only "Garage Inc." steps and next project will go in another PDF, if I'll ever do another one :D

Another excellent and brilliant creation Andrea! Your work is amazing! I am soooo happy and excited to see your PDF on this! Thank you so much for taking the time to do that and the willingness to share with us your knowledge. Now if you could only share some of your artistic talent...that would be even more helpful!:D:D:D

You understand the art in the use of the transparency feature. Brilliant!

I love it. It says so much in nearly monochrome without that pesky color to distract from the power of the contrast, and the hierarchy therein.

Really superb! Bravo!:):):):):)

Awesome painting with a great illumination and wonderful contrasts. Love it. Looking forward to see the pdf. :)

It's a great fantasy piece. Finely illustrated. The details and the contrasts are particularly good.
