Halcyon by alexiuss Halcyon by alexiuss
....Detail shot from yet another massive painting that I've been working on for the past 2 months...
It was going to be 2 meters in size, but my processor overloaded from trying to process a 35'000 pixel file with 50 layers.

I went through your gallery and...
I saw many destructive visions, but I truly like them, I really do...
perhaps this picture is the only one presenting something peaceful here,
a moment of respite from all the chaos
your works are great, hope to see more of them!

my system is too damn old now to even list it
key is to paint when you are zooomed in more and use less layers

If you would be so kind, I have a couple of questions:

If the file is 35,000 pixels, does that mean it's about 187 x 187 pixels?

What kind of processor do you have, and how much ram do you have?

I'm using a pentium 4 with hyperthreading, and I have 4 gigs of ram, but when I work with a picture that is 4000 to 5000 pixels on a side my paint dot lags behind the pen as the picture gets more complex. I'm considering getting a good graphics card for my box.

Thanks
