This tutorial shows you how I paint a post apocalyptic environmental concept art with Mech characters in it.
Full images and post link: Coming Friday
First I comes up with an idea of a post apocalyptic scene with rivalry mech dudes. I visualize the scene of a destructive buildings and walls around them. Then I use two points perspective to set up the background, have one mech guy in the foreground around the focal point and the other in the background.
I painted both of the character from scratch, but I use photo textures to help with the background (Photo batching)
I would not recommended using Photo textures for beginners because it requires not just technical knowledge, but solid painting foundation, strong knowledge of lighting and perspective.

Before you start using photo textures in your image, you should already be comfortable painting a scene without using any photo already. If not, I strongly suggest stay away from it because it will look obvious and not fit in.

I spend about 30 minutes to finish up the speedpainting or composition and underpainting. The speedpainting is basically a quick concept art to give you overall idea of composition, lighting and mood.

Tips on speedpainting. Keep it simple first and make your image clear and easy to read or identify.
Things you should focus on primarily.
1) Shapes
2) Lighting and mood
3) Edges and depth of field.
