LOL I know how that is. I try to draw a snail and end up with a house. Its crazy. I do like this grass. However its the sky that grabs my attention and smacks my face with sheer beauty. I wish I could see the process of you making this. You should make one and submit it to your gallery so I can watch your methods. You are really amazing. Have I added you to a watch yet?
Have now apparently, Thanks. I can give that a shot, not sure what the results will be since mini-muro and big-muro don't work the exact same. Basically I just use a lot of the same methods as Bob Ross taught for his. He may of been a painter but his teachings still are quite effective for the digital arts. Start with a background and let the happy accidents go! I do like the idea of it though, so I'll slap it on my to do list. I've really been enjoying doing these landscapes, thanks for the great thread idea.
This is really cool this helps so much. I'm not only enjoying making these pieces but they are turning out amazing too. Here is the first one I tried out. [link] I didn't use all your lovely techniques in this one cause I wanted the scene to be as I saw it. I know stars would have looked nice but when I looked at the sky that night there wasn't any visible. However in my next attempts to practice I'll try to integrate more techniques.
Since that was more of a city sky I wouldn't expect stars yet at that brightness of sky, so you did right. Don't worry about using all the techniques at once (I won't be offend), they are there for you to use when you feel you need them. Here is a new technique that did for some rather amazing leaves you can play around with too if you like. [link]
Looks like an ear on the tree. xD But great work. We should all be studying something rather then doing what we all are right now. I need to go back to college my speaking skills are starting to dumb down thanks to all the morons I hang out with. lol
