First was a scene from "The Aviator". I spent super long on this, probably 2.5 hours and I couldn't get it to a good "finish". It made me realize how tough smoke and fire effects are. Although my biggest concern with these studies is color and mood rather than getting FX right, I still feel like I missed the mark on this one.
#005, 2.5 Hours, The Aviator
Second one I did today was more successful in my opinion. It was also a little more fun to work on.
#006, 1 Hour, Empire Strikes Back
And just for good measure, I'm throwing in yesterday's paint from Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. This one I think was fairly successful outside of mostly the snow capped mountain tops.Though looking at it now I do notice that it doesn't have as much of a "grand" feel as the movie still. Needs more atmosphere.

MUST KEEP PAINTING.
