I created this to lift my spirit up a bit between dealing with all this ******* paper and what not

did it help? :( By the way Iceland or Norway's paperwork?

Neat. The character bit was painted afterwards or it's all render?

Best wishes...

We have self assessment in the UK now. It's still a pain, but mostly achievable online. Hope doing the render helped.

it's in Iceland, where I currently live now.. and it's more that I'm dealing with the reprecussions of not having had a clue when I filled out my tax returns last year...living in Iceland these last years after the economic downfall we had hasn't been a breeze for most people, and like a lot of other people I've been forced to juggle my bills every month trying to score some money out of the occational freelance work I find. This is something that I am and hopefully the rest of the population here are working our way out of slowly... but basicly most of induviduals and families here are in debt. But for now it's dealt with now among other papery things... :) and yes, doing a satirical little sketch like this helps a bit I think... releases some frustration into quick artwork instead of letting it poison my mood :)

I'm fairly new to the digital painting process but I find that if I want to do something really quick from the top of my head, I do a very primitive modelling and frame the camera and render out an ambient occlusion render to serve as a base, then I paint over it.

on a side note... I want to say that I'm not looking for sympathy here :) in Iceland people have it sooo much better than so many other places in the world, but it's just been a bit tricky for everyone to adjust :)

Ah nice I was wrapping my head about a similar process recently and it's very nice to see an example set and done. Very nice :) Keep up.

http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?136032-Thirsty-Plants-Quick-arcitectural-type-of-illustration this one was created in a similar manner but I used much more time on painting that one... the 3d base render I did for this was basicly just boxes and very very simple shapes... but it helps me to do it this way since I'm not that quick to draw "yet" :)
