Under Water ShipWreck - Speed Painting Time-lapse
Hi everyone! I have been busy with university work these last few weeks but have managed to find time to fit this concept painting, which I will now share the process that went into creating it with you.
Under Water Ship Wreck
I first begin with the blue background with a gradient from light to dark to show the depths of the ocean where light doesn't reach.
I draw the basic shape of the ship with a large brush and add the basic tones not concerned with detail here.
With a smaller brown brush I start adding smaller details to add greater complexity to the ship's form.
I then draw the scuba diver to add to the overall composition and give a sense of scale to the size of the ship.
Once all the layers are flattened, I add a slight lighting effect from above to create a greater contrast.
I applied a subtle sharpen effect to see how it would look and ended up preferring this effect compared to how it looked previously. Once this was completed I decided there wasn't much more to add to the piece.
This is the reference photo I used to help create the painting.
Created using a Wacom Intuous Graphics Tablet.
Below is a short time-lapse of the whole process. The music is from the free music in the YouTube audio library.
