This one is very good. I especially like the broken "floating" rock bits, that convey action on the left side of this piece. Are you using all stock brushes for these paintings? Im reading a book about drawing landscapes, and seascapes, so hopefully ill try my hand at this technique in PS soon.
Thanks for sharing this, and the past similar concepts for reference. You have improved a lot in a small amount of time.
I'm using Jonas De Ro's brushes for my paintings, mostly. I have created about 2 or 3 of my own brushes but those aren't brushes that I use for landscapes-- more like for coloring faces and such (which is kind of really hard).
Here's the pack: [link] If you're going to use these, read the whole thing so you know what they're for! It'll take a while to get used to all of them, though. And you'll probably end up adjusting the brush settings quite a bit. Actually, I can't even know if these go well for you, but personally I'd say that these brushes fit my style quite well. ^^
Again, thanks. I guess I have improved kind of fast. (: Now I'm kind of stuck in an artist's block type of thing, though.. can't get anything done. :F
Remakes are a great for seeing improvement, and you can really see it with these two paintings, fantastic considering it's just a few months between them. I like this, the concept is very cool and the colours convey the mood brilliantly.
