I watched a video of you painting this back in late July. It's what made me decide I wanted to start environmental painting.

This reminds me of an episode that played in Samurai Jack... Samurai Jack tries to climb a snowy mountain with some monks and he keeps saying: "It is impossible." Have you seen Samurai Jack?

Lovely work. I watched your four part video of this painting on You Tube. Having just finished my first digital painting of my own drawing following a technique from Creative Photoshop CS4, I realize a lot of things i did wrong.
Typically as always i went straight for the detail and started in the centre and worked my way out. I'm more than happy with the result but if i was to be critical the lighting and contrast feels a little flat and i haven't quite got the depth of the backgound in the distance. I enjoyed doing it tho.
Animation and illustration is more my forte, but your work is definitely inspiring. You can check out the painting at www.rbjart.com. Love to know what you think if you have the time

Cheers
Rich

Really amazing ! and an excellent job ;) but how do you know where you have to put the spots and how do you know the colors to use to finally have this realistic result ? Because i would want to try the digital painting but i never know where i have to put colors, the colors i have to use and i don't even know from what i have to begin first lol so i'm really desperate -_-

I adored watching your video, your words moved beyond the technicalities that almost all tutorials seem to focus on and get to the heart of the piece, and the actual creativity of the art. You have re-inspired me, and I'm striving to learn to someday be as good at environments as you <3

Hi! I just watched your tutorial on youtube about this piece! Really good tutorial! Besides allowing us to see your working methods, it also lets us know were to take some examples on lighting and were to "take" an illustration besides the obvious... Very good! Thank you very much for taking the time to do that! :D

At the end of your process, do you sharpen the image, or is it always this amazing? ;)

:iconnoahbradley:
noahbradley Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I do a bit of sharpening. :) But it's not that necessary--when you work at a high resolution, things will simply look better when you downsize it. So work big.

Frickin' woah, that's impressive. I got here via your very impressive digital environment painting tutorial someone linked on a different forum and I must say I'm really stunned. I got cold shivers and the familiar sense of dread I get from looking at heights just from looking at this piece of art. It's brilliant.
