Too Slow by CrimsonMagpie Too Slow by CrimsonMagpie
Trolls turn to stone in the sunlight obviously. :meow:

This is a revision of an old pencil drawing from when I'd just discovered Alan Lee.
Aside from his huge influence it's inspired by fairytales/myths and the wonderful landscape of Dartmoor.

I used just four colours on the whole thing, all mixed beforehand so I could work wet-in-wet without having to stop (my normal modus operandi when painting is to mix as I need). I also used just one brush.



Acrylic on paper, 43 by 30cm / 17 by 12"

Wow, you really suck at this. The colours are pretty decent, you haven't messed them up, I must say the way you incorporated the water into the stone is not that bad, it gives the painting a dampy look (See, new word! :iconlarrylaplz:) and I also don't completely hate the way the trees get lost into the stone giving it a brownish tint. I hate to say this but I sort of like, although not LIKE like, the shadowing and lighting on the rocks, especially on the face area, actually one the center face cause I notice another one on the left. :iconteheplz: The foggy trees in the back aren't horrible either, they make the painting look bigger and they also focus the attention on the centre of the painting. To conclude, if I found this laying on the street I might pick it up and give it a better look, but nothing more, you still suck. Vision 1/5, Originality 0,2/5, Technique 0,7/5, with lots of indulgence, and Impact 0,3/5. And you should be grateful.
What do you think?

This is really awesome. I like these kind of themes. And well executed with the restricted colour palette. :nod: Alan Lee is also one of my favourite fantasy artists.
