So lots a couple of people were asking me to do a tutorial. I didn't know they are so hard because I find them kind of a pain in the ass to do , probably because I have never done one.
sorry for the big file size , but I will upload the actual painting by itself probably tomorrow , still some minor touch ups I forgot to handle
Any ways this is a basic approach of to how I would approach a landscape environment either at work or something personal at home
you can view a bigger version of the actual painting here[link]
please don't think this is the only to do it for there are many , i am by no means an expert on the matter so whatever I say is not fact , its just my opinions and approaches to how i do it
lasso tool and gradient tool can be your friend if used correctly. I feel its important to not zoom into the details to early on and not rely on custom brushes. They are all just tools at the end of the day. So learning to paint things from scratch is always makes for a better artist in my opinion, and if you want to paint things from scratch you need reference.
if you want the full size just download it
thanx for looking
