Holy shit this is pretty fantastic!
Have you ever thought of putting up any step-by-step for a landscape-type drawing or a (I hate using this word) tutorial?
Chronorin's avatar
No, not really.  I don't really do... steps.  I don't work in a logical manner.  I just thrash around blindly until something looks right.  True story.

I should do more landscapes, though.

I've been trying to get into doing wide digital-painting pictures for a while and I can never get it right, so any advice on doing it can really help. Do you use any specific brushes or anything? Generally all I've managed to figure out is there's minimal sketching and you build up basic shapes with effects and highlights.

Yep, i have some fancy smoky/cloudy brushes that i use.    And yeah, when it comes to landscapes, it's best to not sketch TOO much.  Just a little.  You have to unprogram the part of your mind that wants to put outlines around everything, and make things... foggy and simple.  It's hard to describe.

I really need to look into it. It just seems really daunting and obtuse to get into. You use Photoshop, right?
Chronorin's avatar
Yup.  Photoshop always forever.

If only Photoshop worked on my pc. I'll have to figure out how to paint in Medibang I guess!

That looks so cool! You made the landscape a character in its own right. Lots of personality.
Chronorin's avatar
Aww, thank you.

Thanks. Every now and again, I like to try and prove that I'm about more than just cute mutant babes.
Zoe-the-Pink-Ranger's avatar
Perfectly understandable... though most of us love the cute mutant babes ;)
Chronorin's avatar
I know.  So do i.  If i ever become successful, it will be because of them.

Cute monster babes to the rescue!

This is immaculate.

Thanks.... still not entirely happy with it.  Still, landscapes are good practice.  

Also, don't look now, but i updated the shading on Garden Slug II just a bit... now she is perfect!

I'm trying to figure out how much my new Kyla Goloross character should look like her.  Somewhat, but not exactly?
