30 minute studies

i recently started doing these 30 minute studies. they are from photos but no photo textures or actual photo images are in the studies. the purpose is to capture the essentials as quickly as possible. i'm trying to get the big impression of realism so that at first glance it seems convincing. as i do more of these i'll publish some comprehensive tutorials on what i'm discovering. stay tuned :)

I like the idea - limiting yourself to 30 min. Keeps the emphasis on color/light not rendering.

Damn, yeah, I am as always impressed. Edge and shape control are outstanding. Really knocking in all the essentials to make it read fast.

very impressive! Especially considering the time constraint.

Only crit I can say is that the edges of the buildings are very sharp, especially the three on the bottom. Not sure what the fix would be though ...

These look great, your simplification is well designed. I must remind myself to let the brushes do the work. It is very important to plan and design before you begin a piece. I once heard of Haddon Sundbloom that we went through great pains to make his work look effortless. I think 30min studies are a good way to study what is absolutely necessary.

Very nice! I also enjoy regularly doing short studies, you learn a lot, and it really keeps your internal rhythm going. Epic blog by the way.
