EDIT: Changed the colour of the lower writing to black so it's more visible since it's on a paler background than the top writing.
Changed it so there's a version with just a grey sky and no light.

Part 1 --->

THERE, as promised since May xDD

I was going to put trees and leaves in this one as well but rocks and clouds were selfish and took up the whole tutorial :I
So there's going to have to be a part 3 xD

Anyway i say thank you to *pettyartist for the awesome brush i use for backgrounds [link] <3
i can't tell from that image which one i use but you should be able to find it from the image in the tutorial (;

Also does anyone know how to upload just one brush from your photoshop? i can only save the .abr file for all my brushes xD
i want to upload my blendy cloud brush.

Cloud and other brushes --->

Enjoy! i hope it helps some people! <3

For the longest time, many people have been requesting for tutorial on how to paint/speed-paint rocks...

Well, this tutorial shows some of the ways I do it.

There are other methods I use but this tutorial shows the best examples to understanding the concept and not just the technique (well, i hope it does).

I hope it helps! :)

what software is that?
I did this in Photoshop cs2, but anyone can follow these steps using any painting/drawing software. I also just used a default brush here.

Why no textures? Rocks are often rough, right?
What is most important is to depict the form of the rock. To make it look realistic or believable, the rock should have body, and fit into it's environment. The textures are just secondary.

like my facebook page here i sometimes update it with random artworks not found here on da! :D

HEY GUYSSS Here's the background tutorial I promised you. c: I hope you guys find it useful! I tried my best explaining how I usually do my stuff.

OMGGG, There's so many typos there! ;uuuuu; Please ignore them. :iconlazepoolplz:

Here's some reminders:

* All of my backgrounds are made in a single layer. Why? Because it's easier to blend colors. C:
* I love the overlay layer. I usually add orange, red or green to make things more vibrant.
* If you're confused, GOOGLE IT. C:

Don't be afraid to ask anything, okay? C:

EDIT: Ahhh, reading through it again, I sound too all-knowing. The stuff I put there is what I believe in and practice. ;uuuu; I didn't mean to sound too sure of what I was teaching. I might be wrong. ;uuuuuu; Big Fool Emoji-07 (Cry) [V2]

The first part turned out to be only some base prelude to the tutorial itself... few words about composition, perspective and some easy-to-do examples of backgrounds

Another part of this tut will be a step by step explaining tutorial done from the image I'm drawing now. Art with those two foals who are used as a models in this tutorial =] (siblings Karthala & Cirdan)

:iconflag-poland: Polska wersja do przeczytania tutaj: [link]


used this cute photo as a reference for foals: [link]
