Dragon Falls


I guess its finished. I might rework some parts... we'll see. Anyway here you go! Some new ideas and techniques here. Ive been feeling for a while... that the jpeg compression is bad!!!!!!!! Ive been looking up how to reduce the loss of quality but Im not getting much luck. Oh well, I think you are always bound to lose something converting psd into jpeg. Hmmm... thinking of what to do next... maybe an interior... or a character as a break from all the enviros... or theres the Art-Actuate brief that I haven't touched yet...

I especially love the colours you've used in the water - lovely work.

Nice one Mr Ho! Is that from reference or imaginationess? Still very nice though!

Imagination Keith, but had to look up reference for painting trees.

i would also like to know which brushes you use in your photoshop paintings, however much i try, i can't make my stuff look as organic as yours :)

Hey Hollie! Hows uni?
Ive been well, trying to strengthen up my portfolio and gun down some ppl :P
I downloaded some brushes from Pao on ConceptArt.Org. Check out his sketchbook to fins a download link somewhere (I cant remember the page number, sorry). For this one I used the Palette knife from Painter. I prefer it for making natural scenery.
