This was my entry for the 'Photoshop Phun Week 9' held by #MasterPhotoshop (won the competition)

Speedpaint of Bruges done in Photoshop CS5. I used wet media brushes with high opacity for a basic colourlayer and smaller brushes with 20-50% opacity for shading using darker values of the original ones.

Editing Program: Photoshop CS5
Tablet: Wacom Bamboo (16:9)
Time: ~4 hours (finished)
Fun Factor: Massive!

really awesome colours and textures there's a nice ambience about the picture. i agree with *secretly-broken's comments, particularly with the clouds, I usually find that if you paint in wiggly lines and circular motions you get more fluffy-looking clouds. but otherwise really awesome (: i especially like how you did the water, the subtle reflections really add realism to the painting (:

Looking back at it from today, I absolutly agree with you. I would have done a lot of things different to be honest. Thanks for the feedback! :)

I quite like the general idea of this. But if you worked a little more in it, it could be a lot stronger.
I'm really fond of your water, especially the colour of it. It looks really pretty. :)
I like the blue of the sky too but the clouds look a little too scattered. If they were a tad more structured, it would look better, I think.
The buildings and trees also seem to kind of run into each other. If they had more definite shapes the picture, in its entirety, would be stronger.

Nice for a speed paint. The edges of the clouds could be softer.

I'm actually working on this right now, but thanks for the input anyway! This was a speedpaint at first, but I'm enhancing it.

You might want to lower the opacity on the brush settings for the clouds and use a bigger brush. Good for you :)
