A digital painting from August.

This was an entry for a contest on deviantART, where you needed to incorporate some set lines into your picture (hence a conspicuous tree branch line and river flowing from the mountains) and I ended up with a sort of naturey scene. I was nervous about my choice to add mountains to the scene due to my struggles with them before, but I actually seemed to work out how to paint them so they actually did look like mountains. I used a few custom Photoshop brushes here and there, but it was mostly individual strokes of the hand making all the grass and tree/bush leaves.

My guess is this image took around 15 hours to paint, but that's only really an estimate.

Amazing

Nice use of the light. Great picture. ;) The scenery and background is amazing.



pretty awesome!

Really nice colours and composition, and the idea is great. Only thing is that the river looks a little strange as it comes down the mountains. Otherwise, great work!



great work

now i'm no art critic but this is just great, if some1 said it needs more to be better i'd say they were blind. 5/5 10/10 :)
