Rogue wave - sketch by Griatch-art Rogue wave - sketch by Griatch-art
A quick water sketch. Nothing original or very interesting, but it was fun to play with some previously untested water-colour brushes. :)

MyPaint + GIMP, 1.5 hours or so.

Thanks, this is one of those technical tests that has no "purpose" though; it tells no story. In retrospect I should have added some person fleeing from the wave of something maybe - just to make the image about something.

I think you managed to capture the feeling of movement very well. Good translucency on the upper part of the wave, too.

Hi Songwind!

Thanks, glad the light and movement works out, it's a classic motif but it's fun for a quick study. :)

very nice, very good colours. Only two things i would criticize. First of all, what is that thing on the top right? The perspective makes it look like we are either looking at an extremely big wave from far away, or a small wave from up close. since there is nothing else to compare it to it is hard to understand how big it is. Also, it is lacking a little bit of depth, which i guess goes hand in hand with the perspective thing.

The top right is a part of a stone cliff face. I picture the wave somewhere close to shore, in a lagoon surrounded by cliffs maybe. The cliff is there exactly in order to establish the size of the wave (but if you don't see what it is, then it didn't work very well).
This is a quick image, maybe the cliff could have been made clearer. :)

i see. maybe if you use some cooler colours for the cliff to seperate it more from the water it would be clearer :)

How many layers did you use? Or did you just use one layer with several paints stacked?

It's very beautiful. It makes me want to paint a Hawaiian beach scene. :]

It's little "sketches" like this that are the most fun to do.

Thanks! :) I mostly use one layer for painting, but I did make a copy of the layer a few times, it's a quick way to "save" a version in order to experiment (which I merge down once I decide). I also played with things like the background rock on a separate layer so it was easy to delete variations of it.
At the most I think had three layers for this - main painting, a layer for Dodge/Burn enhancement and one for experimenting with foam and rocky background.
