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.
