A Steampunk Christmas: Speed Paint Challenge

Well not a lot to say about this one really. Other than I'm not sure how that tree machine is supposed to work does here XD. Though I hate to admit this one frustrated me to no end. I think I need to re -learn the basics of 'Speed Painting'. I had to resist the urge not to simply delete this (as well as scream in frustration). Still, practice is always good and it gets me creatively working again :-)

Christmas Card Design

These are some Christmas card designs I painted a few weeks back. They're painted on pre-made cards which is why the tops of the images aren't as decorated and why there's a crease line through the middle. They were painted to be sent off for the even on Deviantart. The originals have been sent to the DA headquarters and they will then hand them out to people in hospitals. I'm pleased with the snowman, however I wouldn't mind some suggestions on what I could have added to the red and yellow with the swirl on it.

The Gingerbread Palace In The City Of Sweets

Not quite what I was hoping for it to look like, My original idea was for a post card look. I was going to try and have this as the main image with some squares to the side depicting certain sections of the palace. But once again I ran out of time XD. However rather pleased with this. Took roughly 2 hours (not including doing ironing in between working on it). Rather enjoying these quick speed paints. Feels good to use Photoshop after ignoring it for so long.

CGAA Speed Painting Challenge 19/12/2012

Ok this took me 10-15 minutes (I was determined to try something for this challenge) . I know it's not too good. I'm not entirely sure what I was aiming for. However I can now go in a push it further.

Edit- changed the sky colour to make it a little darker.
