These were done a few weeks ago. The top was done with Paintstorm studio as practice (Being sponsored by them, so expect more Paintstorm tests as I get more time :D I'll write a review when I feel comfortable using all the basic tools) 

The bottom was done with usual paint tool sai. It was inspired by Kung Fu Panda 3-  I walked passed my sis and she was watching it and I just looove the movies to death. The artwork and animation really improved with each movie. This took about 2 hours and 30 min.
The top was inspired by Studio Ghibli environmental art, especially Kazuo Oga. I recently got his first book to look thru along with his first one. It's really inspiring to see his work flow and the details up close. This one took about 3-4 hours, as I was testing out the program. I really enjoyed the foliage shaped brushes! 

To add on, I also did some simple studies. I really recommend looking up like "nature palette", "sky palette" etc. They're really helpful for looking at the base colors of objects.

I love to see studies so thanks for posting your process. By the way, may I ask did you have to apply to get a sponsorship with Paintstorm? I would love to try out the program and give an honest review.

Yeah no problem, and thank you! :) 
Ohh mm they actually emailed me about it, so I'm not too sure about the other way around. This is also my first time being sponsored, so I'm not actually familiar with the process haha. Though the best bet would to contact them on their website. Sorry I don't have much more to say about it;
