I totally forgot that it's SciFi August here on Google+ so I'll share this post here.

Here's my complete set of images I created during Brooke Shaden's 15 day challenge earlier this month. My goals for the challenge were to complete it in 15 days (success!), create science fiction or fantasy themed images (another success!) and practice my painting technique (partial success - didn't do as much of this as I intended).

I found it to be very difficult to create an image every day from conception to posting. I probably spent 3 to 4 hours per day on average. Normally after creating an image I would let it sit for a day or two and go back to it, but I didn't do that with this challenge. Many of the images are unfinished and need further refinement, but I'm happy with how they turned out.

Creating every day seems to work best for me if I have a little direction, such as this daily challenge theme. I think Sebastian Michaels said it best during his 21 Days to Creative Abundance course when he said you should be working on projects, not just individual images. If I'm working towards an overall set of themed images with individual topics to inspire my creativity, I think I'll be more successful than the random stuff I often try to create.

I get a little pumped whenever one of my images gets published in the magazine. Check out page 91 to see my work this month! All the art in this magazine is so inspirational.

I was trying to get a good portrait of the two Starlings on the left when a photo bomber ruined the shot!
