Just finished this one up...Started with a bunch of thumbs...Love painting these..just quick and dirty...just stretching out your ideas. I then took the last thumb and started blocking it out...super rough with lots of underlying texture. I then started detailing and getting the general color right, making sure that it steps back in space.I really wanted to get a heavy atmosphere so I did trees and structures in the back with a really soft brushes and ended up washing back over them to compress the values and try and squeeze as much depth out of the haze as possible. In the final I painted in the lights and added more details and texture.
And I cropped it...Cause I like it better like this.
