Next to small personal projects, I've been working on creating simple value compositions each day. For these I tend to look at Disney background paintings as inspiration, and art works similar to those created for the Disney backgrounds.
These are some of the results of that. Some work, some don't. Either way they are great training.
Each was about 20min. (or one complete Avatar: the last air bender episode ^^) The only exception is 003, which I spend some more time rendering it.
More to follow soon!
