Speedpaint 1 by Exileden Speedpaint 1 by Exileden
a pre-painting of a large painting concept which I want to do at some point in the future.
I'm doing an 1-2 hour speed paints on 5x7 or any small formats to build up a concept idea into small simplied illustration- if I find liking, I tend to create a huge, detailed painting with care and precise.
for the information, i know there are a lot of "mistakes" here but that's why it's just a pre-painting. I'm just sharing a small stuff which I am experimenting and art behind the scenes.

i have in my mind of Skoll and Hati as stone statues- Skoll representing a molten walnut stone statue and Hati as solid, crystallized gray stone statue to reflect the idea of moon and sun. A mark on heaven representing the blood of Ragnarok (it will be definitely re-designed, what i used here is just random) on bleeding sky.... idk. I'll probably change the entire idea.

I have a lot of health issues and stress right now that I have a hard time to draw, at least I'm not able to paint large paintings. My back aches and migraines every day does not allow me to work properly when i sit. Right now I'm working on sketch commissions and I'm only able to do speedpaints/pre-paintings like that at the moment.


Original 5x7' is for sale. Note me if interested. Whole sky is shining with pearlescent D. Smith's paint.

I really love the idea of this, and even your speedpaints give my inspiration to paint myself! I especially like how you imagined Skoll to be made out of molten walnut stone and Hati as solid crystallized gray stone. I really hope to see this as a full, detailed painting someday! :D

This is terrific, I need to buy some of your originals at some point xD
I also love the mythological story behind it, I find this pantheon in particular to be very interesting.
I wish I could manipulate watercolors as well as you can. How do you blend them so well?

Have you ever tried deep breathing or meditation exercises for your headaches? At the end of 2012, I started doing meditation before going to sleep and what a world of difference it has made for my migraines! Though if I miss a couple nights, my migraines do comeback with a vengeance.

My fiance is a traumatic brain injury survivor and is apart of a support group. There is a young man in the group, who was shot by a stray bullet. After his injury, he gets cluster headaches. I'm not sure if you are familiar with clusters? They are more common in men, but I have had them in the past too. Believe it or not, they are nastier then a migraine! Anyway, anytime a cluster headache hits, this young man uses an oxygen mask to help get rid of it!

Lovely piece btw...;)

Nope, well... I tried to do a different star shape but just accidently I made it into too much that star *rolls eyes* Either way I dont plan to use that design, it was meant to be a practice.
