This painting took 2 hours 30 minutes to do so I recorded the process and uploaded it here:

There is no sound, so you will have to provide your own music as I dont want any copyright issues.

And sorry for the annoying zoom in and out but the video is compressed to 15 minutes, so everything seems to happen so fast, its just the way I work.

Anyway I hope you like it.

(Update): I reuploaded the video in higher quality, so remember to check that out!.

I was wondering if maybe I could use this as a room on a chatsite called Wolfhome? I'll give all credit to you

Hej! I knew that this was Swedish as soon as I saw it.
It looks so much like the scenery I saw as I was on the kungsleden. The wooden planks and the signs are so typical! I can't wait to be there again.
;-) Very nice work!
Greetings from Germany.

This is really beautiful! It looks so mystical.:D I love all the shades of green in the grass, and it also has great texture.

I thought this was LoTR related at first. Good job as always. I must say though, I had no idea you started with photos.

I want to goo inside there and smoke my pipe.
MatesLaurentiu Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Simply beautiful. I keep waiting for some creature to pop its head from around the corner. This image is so magic and fairy tale like. You can image the wind in the trees and the whisper of the little creek, the smell of green, wet grass. Well done sir and thank you for a visual treat.
Regarding the video, in my opinion its just the right size. Very interesting approach to your image I might say.

Thanks a lot for the video, dude! I learned so much from that. I was trying to figure out how you make such compelling brush strokes in your paintings, and the video showed me just that, so I'm gonna tweak my own process a little bit.

As for the painting, you have very interesting value compositions, because sometimes you limit your range, like with this one. It makes it stand out from everyone else who tries to use everything in between black and white, if you know what I mean.
alljack Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011
Its really nice to see how you work as I really like the end result you achieve. Thanks a lot for uploading this - i'd say 15mins is fine <3
UnidColor Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011
Thanks, glad you liked it!, yeh I will keep it that way than, and if I paint for longer than 3 hours it will be going faster anyway as I dont wanna go over 15 min (youtubes limit).
Zoriy Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011
Thanks for sharing the video process =) The length of the video is ok for me, but resolution is a bit low. This painting have a lot of details and variety and that's cool because you don't spend too much time detailing stuff =)
Great forest mood btw.
UnidColor Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011
Im done uploaded the HD now=) so check that out in the youtube options!.
