My favourite media are: rendered art (CGI, ray tracing), virtual painting, and photography.
Recent projects: Coniferous forests and atmospheres, bluebells, storyboarding, The Tourist, sunset skies, abstracted emotions, light-scattering media.
My first attempts playing with Krita, about 40 minutes each.
I make a couple of five-minute attempts, starting from scratch. This helps me quickly develop a technique. The one you see here is the final attempt.
