Environment Practice by Altalamatox Environment Practice by Altalamatox
My Illustration professor had us completely lay out our own assignments and due dates for this semester. It was a terrible and awesome power.

I'm trying to hit things I'd not otherwise be assed to make myself do, like pure landscapes.

Around five hours each, with an hour for tweaks after class critique.

My current self-induced punishment is designing and painting A Building. I have a sneaking desire to do Brogan and Marie's tailor shop, but I'm thinking that's overly ambitious. Shame on you, Geometry, you ugly thing.

Aw, thanks! You know, when I painted these I think I pretty much used the default round brush the whole time. Lately I've been using, I think it's #32, one of the middling rough brushes that come with Photoshop. Nothing special, really! You might check out the deviant Nathie, she has some quite nice brush sets in her gallery for free use. There's one set, canvas textures, or something like that, which I like for roughing in backgrounds or adding grit to images.

I'm loving those thumbnails, especially the top two rows. Also the cloud in the desert. But especially those top few thumbnails.

Wow! Your works are completely amazing!
These backgrounds made me crazy about your art, and I suppose, not only me... ;) How do you paint them, in the name of Holy Cookies?! Could you share your secret with us, the mortals? :D

For some reason I like your sketches more than your coloured works. Not that I don"t like the coloured stuff, just the sketches are very very beautiful. :)
