August 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge and Chat

GUIDELINES:
On the first of each month a subject, concept or idea will be posted in a thread entitled Fantasy Science Fiction Monthly Challenge and Chat.

All entries must be new original artworks for this challenge in any style or genre of Fantasy or Science Fiction done in any medium, 2D or 3D.
Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are working/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images! Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere such as the Reference Image Library or best of all your own wonderful imagination!
A "reveal" date for all is 21th of the month, feel free to post till the end of the month, then a new Challenge will be posted.

Please post the finished artwork on this thread at that time.

This months theme is a fantasy or sci-fi landscape suggested by LavenderFrost.

Re: August 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge and Chat

Oh dear lol. Now I will have to find time this month. Good thing it's any medium. We'll be going to the lake this weekend and staying for a week. Then hubby wants to take a trip after that, maybe go to the Mall of America. So maybe I'll use Procreate for this one.

And what I had in mind with this suggestion is you start with a reference of a real landscape and turn it into a fantasy scene.

This makes you think about what makes a scene a fantasy scene. It could simply be the addition of fantasy creatures. Or maybe unusual trees and plants. Strange or gravity defying structures or land forms.

I think we should include the reference with the paintings later. It will be interesting to see how people choose to transform the landscape.

Re: August 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge and Chat

I have a pretty big reference collection, always on the lookout for a possible painting. Keep in mind that it doesn't have to be a big landscape. I found myself more drawn to closer scenes.

Re: August 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge and Chat

I'm back from vacation, it was wonderful though I'm exhausted.

I took so so many photos, I've just started going through them but I have an idea already.

Re: August 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge and Chat

I had to take Sammy into the vet. He caught a respiratory virus at the kennel. He has had the shots for kennel cough but I guess that's not a guarantee as like the human flu there are so many different mutations of viruses.

I was pretty ticked, this is supposed to be the best in the area and it is expensive but when I picked him up he had dog dirt all over him, his eyes were caked over and he was coughing. The girl thought it was funny that he had been sleeping so hard all day being too silly to realize something was wrong. I was furious!

The vet said he should be alright but it's going to take awhile and it's always a concern with an older dog to be sick like that.

The poor guy sounds so terrible, he coughed and wheezed all night long. I've been giving him frozen seedless watermelon that seems to help his throat.

I'm still going through photos, I loved San Antonio. It's funny I had pictured it as a dry deserty place but it was gorgeous and has an amazing river walk between the buildings with massive trees and friendly ducks.

Sounds like you had a nice vacation, always interesting to go to new places.

Sammy is still pretty sick, the vet said it'll take weeeks because it was so hard on his system. His eye which was also injured is worrisome, hoping it heals okay though.

I'm almost done mine too, I have the linework part done, just need to color it. We always watch Battlebots on Fridays, I usually draw or whatever while doing that.

So sad for Sammy, I hope he gets better soon.

We're back from our holiday in the US. I did start on my project last week while camping but had no time this week. We travelled from Manitoba to Minneapolis, or I guess Bloomington, to see the Mall of America. We did the Crayola Experience, Sea Life, Fly Over America and Canada (that's really cool), Build a Bear, ate a couple of times, and went on one little ride. Next day we went to Milwaukee because hubby wanted to see the Harley Davidson museum. Next morning we went to Discovery World and then started heading back home. We spent a night somewhere and made it home last night. We went to the Hobby Lobby in Fargo. Wow, I wish we had a store like that in Manitoba.

Re: August 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge and Chat

Uh-oh. Looks like I'm first

I've been rather miserable and unmotivated for past few months, but I sort of managed to get myself together and was able to pick up a pen again.

The Sleeping Tree ( mixed media on A3 Canson Illustration) is a painting loosely based on a very peculiar tree that grows very close to my neighborhood. I've always wanted to incorporate it into my works. I think it may be one of my most time-consuming pieces. It took me 6(!) days to complete.

Very cool!
I love your sleeping tree and the reference is great, do you mind if I use it also?
