Uncharted Waters

Practice piece to render fantasy landscape. I'm planning on taking this one further when i get the chance. Hope to find time to redevelop my style for landscapes since i've now came back to it, and i'd hate to be still doing the same thing.

so this is a warning to myself. yea.

nice stuff! I love landscape illustrations (though I can't do them myself ARRGH!) I like the roughness and texture you've done around the rocks and shrubs with such simple brush strokes. it's great. Keep it up!

*starts singing tha Laputa song*
This reminds me so much of Laputa, I mean, the landscape is something worth dying over. This is definently some place that would be uncharted in heaven. I love this. I guess if Heavenhas these types of places, Its worth waiting for. <3 This is astounding.

Going for a different style? Then be less... How to put it. Don't think, like you usually do. When you catch yourself doing something that seems familiar, stop and turn.

Take risks, and try a shape or opacity for brush that you hate. (You'll be amazed at how you can suddenly come up with another style just like that.)

Nice.

lol a warning to yourself, what kind of style of landscape painting your aiming for per se?

:iconfrankhong:
frankhong Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
perhaps a more delicate style, one that doesn't show as much brush strokes, i don't know. i've been trying different things, and they all sort of end up looking similar to what i didn't have in mind. =___=

:icondraa:
draa Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
mmm one with less brush strokes, complete opposite for me when I start practicing painting again I want to see my brush strokes...and lmao ahah sad thing is im having the same problem and cant seem to express what i have in mind. :D

well keep at it, but you know sometimes its not a bad idea to just let it be.

I'm in love with this.
Beautiful colors and atmosphere. Great depth to it too.
I look at it and I get some really relaxing tune playing in my head like the latest Prince of Persia's menu theme or something.
I'm trying to learn to do landscapes and works like this really inspire me. I think my biggest issues are not knowing where to start, how to put my ideas out, how to get the colors right. But I feel like staring at art such as this one helps, so thank you for sharing.

Super painting style :D ! How do you get those clean lines but still a great depth in the colors?

You use selections, of a hard-edged brush with 0% spacing? Penpressure on the flow and opacity? :$
Please tell me, I love to learn this style, it's the same style used on most of the PrinceOfPersia artwork :)

Great light & color work, the shapes are awesome too!...You make the environment seem believable & fantastical at the same time! Your landscapes just get better & better...Thanks for sharing this...I'm going to really study this one.

:eyepopping:Awesome job!!!

Quick Question: Do you choose your color palette before hand or just go with it and tweak as you go???

frankhong Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
i usually start with a limited palette, analogous colors or monochrome. then add in accent colors for contrast when i work into the painting. :)
