Wanted to try out some different ways of approaching environments. This particular approach I took is from Eytan Zana. The approach is not too foreign but its something I wanted to explore a little bit more. He recently posted some psd files from the massive black workshop . I was able to take a look at the layers and break em down and try my own attempt.
Since I took my time and kept all the layers I will post a tutorial soon of how I approached this painting
I love this lighting. Very memorable image.
amazing light work! (and everything else )
Dear sir, I would love to have a 2880x1800 of this....pwease *insert watery puppy dog eyes*
Awesome, thanks for sharing.
Fantastic composition and contrast in the environment. Very excited to see how you worked through this.
Is it weird that I wanna eat this? CUZ IT LOOKS SO GOOOOOD
Great Job on this Kalen!
the detail is weird around the image
sometimes its crisp sometimes its blury, i dont know why, but you dont know on what you should focus when you look at this image
I've been working like that for a while its relaxingly systematic to take, feels like you spend more time considering the composition instead of worrying about fixing forms and details all at the same time.
Epic as usual oO
o.o so cool
Yeah, the pdf was really helpful! If you havn't already done it, you should watch Shaddy Safadis tutorials, they are amazing! (From what I caught he taught Eytan Zana? They are linked for sure) The only thing disturbing me is the interference between the shoft shadow and the light area in the foregroundrock. There should be some exaggerated saturation on the edge instead Otherwise, that would totally make a new focalpoint, and a strong at that :/ dunno
Omg I love this. Love the lighting and the composition. You're a god
It first, I seriously thought this was a photo.
that water is amazing! Everything is crazy in this piece, love it.
Yay! Can't wait for the tutorial. Love your style and the jagged-ness
