Forest Niagara (With Tutorial)

Hey! Here's the final, rendered-up version of that forest sketch. The first part of the tutorial / walkthrough is up HERE, and it's FREE. Parts 2 and 3 will follow, and they will also be free to watch. Paying site members can download the .PSD and brush files I used to follow along. So there we go!

What you see here is a tiny bit beyond what the tutorial covers. I added a details and otherwise touched it up for a bit after recording ended, but the process is the same as what I go over in the video, and by the time you watch the whole thing, you should have a good understanding of how I ended up with this image. Remember, the first third of the painting process is the most important part! The rest is just elaboration.

EDIT: added in dem birds and darkened the water for some better focus.

Time taken: about 8 hours

EDIT: After confusion and convolution and grief, a wild DD appeared! I'd like to thank :iconsaloguardione:, :iconmaster-mune:, and :iconmoonbeam13: for this! You are all awesome!

This is beautiful! <3 I can only hope I'll be able to paint such gorgeous landscapes someday! :'D

Saw this through the DD and had to make sure my praise went to the right page! Your gallery is fantastic, and definitely worth a watch. :) Look forward to seeing more of your work! :D

Thanks so, so much. I really appreciate you popping on over. I will definitely be producing more work! Just you wait! Haha.

Ahh, no problem! c: I'm glad I found you! Seems like it would've been more appropriate for the Daily Deviation to go to the page of the original artwork if you ask me. :/
Can't wait to see it! :'D

And just so you know, this piece has now been granted DD status after all :)
I am a happy boy.

Ahh, that's awesome! I'm glad to hear they fixed it! :) That was a pretty big mistake on their part! :x But it's nice to see it resolved. I read your journal just now, and it's quite a shame that yours won't be getting the publicity, but at least the award belongs to the right person now!

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, haha.

Believe me, that was the subject of much discussion. We're seeing what we can do about that...
