Practice using Google Maps.
i'm just so bad at drawing landscapes that i donno what to do to make it better... xD but you in the other hand draw them and it looks so easy... just keep it up you're really great artist ^^
Thanks so much for the motivation! I also struggle with them, I'm learning about them now because I realise alot of games have really good environment and they make the games interesting to explore. I still have much to learn, and I feel the reason why I did well in this picture was because its simplified alot without much vegetation/ architecture. I'll study more so that I can produce more images that are environment related ;
yep keep at it and i'll try to "copy" you xD i don't mean like really copy just try learning from same things you do... it seems like a good starting point :3
Alright, I don't mind you learning from me Something I learned from doing this Plein air sketch is that when doing environments its way better to zoom out and not focus on the detail until you position everything, and even then it doesnt have to perfectly fit the view like a photocopier machine. This sketch is done on A4 whereas the real picture on Google Map probably is longer in width. The original purpose of the sketching exercise is to fill my brain with what to do when I want to create something scenic like this, so as long as I do something close/similar to the real image I would deem the exercise a success.
