so, are the mountains a real picture? is that what you mean by matte painting?

how do you make everything look so crisp and awesome ;_; I want to lear how to do that, but my paintworks look so flat and faded. ;_; like so [link] do you think you could point me in the right direction?

fabulous painting btw, seriously great job! Insta fave

Haha really funny I was randomly browsing through your work and was just watching that piece!! coincidence or?!

Yes the mountains were from a photograph and then painted over. Im still learning so much, and im starting to get more comfortable with my brush strokes and design choices.

You should try tutorials on youtube! Those of 'Feng Zhu' are really good but mayb a bit hard when ur starting.

As for getting more depth in your piece, u should add more colours. Eyes see something as green, but in fact there mayb red/ yellow / purple pixels in there. Shades often have more blues in there, because of the sky (being the second light source). And the highlight should have colours of the primary light source in there, in this case the orange / yellow.

And also experiment a lot with different compositions, brushes and the blending modes of photoshop brushes/layers.
I hope I have been of help. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. I`m still no master though, working hard every day!

Mwahaha, I sent you mind control signals before you got this message! mwahaha! It worked!

Thank you so, so much for the information! I shall check out this, 'Feng Zhu' art and use what you said about different colours in my next piece! Once again, thanks for the help! ^^

You are a master in my books, your art is fantastic! Thanks for existing!
