Swampish by JoshSummana Swampish by JoshSummana
This took me a good while (approx 16hrs)!!! I originally started it out as some kind of squid looking thing but over time I started adding more green and brown tones and it turned into some kind of swamp critter.

After seeing the live streams and awesome artwork of Dan Luvisi and Dave Rapoza I really wanted to try and do a mega detailed pic. Seeing Rapoza's live streams and seeing how he works I realised I was rushing, trying to get a result too fast instead of just accepting that it takes time and so, in this one - i took my time :P.
It was another challenge for me because I had to conjure the details up haha. I think I finally found a preferred technique now for painting so I am going to keep practicing and see what comes out next :P

Hope you guys like it :)

this is awesome...CHECK OUT my painting called "PREDATOR", I'm POSITIVE you'll like it because it was inspired by Dan Luvisi as well!
