From the Ice by NakadaiShimada From the Ice by NakadaiShimada
OK, so this is another landscape concept experiment (actually the first one I started of the last 2 I've uploaded.) I painted alongside watching a Feng Zhu tutorial video (This one [link] ) Yes it shares similar shape/structure, but the refining of it was done off my own back... I think it'll be a while yet till I'm close to Feng's magnificent quality, but practice certainly does improve one's quality! :D
I really enjoyed painting this out roughly, and then noodling in to it. I learnt a lot painting this too, and indeed watching through Feng's tuts. (A definite must to check out for all digital artists!)

Thanks for checking it out guys
Let me know what you think!

Ed :D

I've said how I did it in the description... I can't really say any more than that. I painted alongside the tutorial (linked in the description) and painted in a similar way, building up shapes and tones then refining them back, tweaking colour balance/perspective with new layers...
Can't really give you any more than that... Not sure what you want? O.o
Try watching the tutorial. I linked it for a reason.

Yep! :D
all the stuff over on the left, waterfall and such is entirely different... felt like working into it more, on from the tut. could do with more atmospheric depth, but this was the first landscape I'd done for a LONG time lol.
Cheers! :)

Feng Zhu is an insane Artist, I recognized this straight away, This is a nice piece, I like the added waterfall and painterly feel.

Feng is just ridiculously good! I learnt so much painting along side the brief tut.
Thanks very much... I feel I could push the depth a little more and de-saturate the distance a little, I felt I should really make it more original and more my own, so added the waterfall and got really in to it and a lil carried away lol.
Cheers! :D

Thanks very much!
This is a completely new method to me, working very loosely to start with then refining and defining from that. I put a link to the Tut. I followed, by superb artist/Tutor Feng Zhu, definitely worth checking out his tutorials, enjoy!

yeah i will be watching more of them. though i think i need to learn a thing or two about composition first... kind of fail at that.

Hehe, I know what you mean... I play composition while I'm painting really, build things up till they look right

well i've always found it hard to draw background so it's hard having composition with only one element to your drawing.
