Aricee Alley by fox-orian Aricee Alley by fox-orian
EDIT: 03.24.2009: PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE
--------------------------------------------------------------------

First ever speed painting attempt.
Made in 2 hours from a black canvas, photoshop CS4.

Here we have an alley way underneath some of the buildings in the residential districts of Aricee in Synthesis. I didn't want the alley to look particularly scary or dangerous, just sort of unkempt as opposed to the areas on the main streets. I imagined this as being an inbetween area in back of some shops and maybe a restaurant. Some balconies with some plants from some low-wealth apartments.

This was a lot of fun to make, especially after the last three big pictures I've submitted which are very technical and exact.

I'm doing more of these!

... a speedpaint is 2 hours? How long do most things take you?

On average, 20-30 hours depending on the scale of the image.

However, I don't care very much for this way of creating images / I'm not so impressed by speed anymore, so my exploration into speed-painting never went deeper than a handful of images like this one I did around 5 years ago.

Man, I don't know what it is about these kind of run-down, backstreet, rural environments that attract me so, but I just can't help but loving this! Amazing work! Kudos to ya, buddy! This is really good!

Love the sunny, late afternoon feel. It's dark, but not evil, more nostalgic than anything.

Wow. This is really really lovely. The colors are brilliant and the contrast between light and dark is blurred, it almost gives it a misty feeling. Even thouth I'm not into rough colors I really love the pop art sense of this ilustration :) Nicely done!

This is a beautiful illustration. It tells a mysterious story all by itself. The colors and variations in light quality are amazing. Perspective is dead on - creates a lot of depth. I love her body gesture. The calm before the storm...
