Back in December I had a short inspired moment to pursue digital painting. Well I gave it a shot today. I used this tutorial which although isn’t brilliantly interesting, still looked better than some of the others around and seemingly not hideously complicated.
So here is the result. I dumped in an island and a bit more cloud to give it a Solomony/Savo feel. It’s really quite boring, but I’m not devastated with the effort. Infact considering I did this all on Photoshop with just a brush and a smudge tool (okay I might’ve made some hue/lighting changes too), I’m pretty happy. I don’t like the sand. All up it is more wispy than the tutorial, but I dare say one shot is not destined for accuracy, it takes many.
*And some further changes an d a crop. I like this better:
