[size=2]*Note* This is (at this stage) an open challenge. Entries from other members are encouraged.

To mods: I jumped the gun and made a thread in the open challenge arena. Hope that's ok with everyone.

Challenge close date: 3/32/3005
Topic: Make an illustrative image based on the words "Iron Angel".

Try to Adhere to a more painterly style, over a graphical drawing. This excercise is informed by gesture drawings and thumbnail sketches.

Try to get the most information onto the canvas as possible, and consider the image as an overall composition. Thus, try to employ a diverse pallette over making this a strictly b & w image.


Topic - IRON ANGEL [picked by Pganguly]
Time - Lets say no more than 30 mins for painting, reasonably flexible.
Time Frame - til Friday 3/4/05 (cool date huh?)
Photo's - Only for reference.
Size - Doesnt matter for now.
Hardware - Mouse is fine, or wacom if your really lucky.
Multiple Entries - Encouraged.[/size][/quote]

Wish i could work more of a "angel theme" into it. My idea was that the missle can fly into the heavens / protect the planet.......that kinda thing. Maybe i'll do that for a second image.

As i mentioned in the other thread, i have never drawn or painted anything. I'm TERRIBLE.. i just did this to help with its activity, because i think this "arena" idea is a good one.


It's an iron that you use to get wrinkles out of clothes, in case you can't tell. :(

I was thinking of doing a second one, but I decided to just continue fleshing out the first one.

Updated version

Um, I think I've spent another hour and half on it.

My paintings suck if there's no outline (yet) so I had to do a quick inking. The painting was only half an hour though. I hope that qualifies it as "speedpainting."
