eh sugei!!!! I really love this one. Im just starting to do my first landscape…and have zero clue what I'm doing |D. From the looks of it did you use some pictures for the rock textures?

Thank you very much!

I used the rock textures, since i didn't know, as you, what to do, so i checked greatest artist, and they do it too. It just speeds up the process of painting, it is a shortcut. Of course, we must know to draw it ourselves :D

First, learn fundamentals, when you master those, painting is so much easier. I learned that hard way.

well, i suppose don't know is an understatement, i had basic info, i just....can't do it?
yes, i realized how much more i need to get better when i saw someone do a tutorial on an landscape within 2 hrs while explaining it and have it look amazing(i for one, is rolling into 5+ hrs). of courses he is a professional so it be expected of him :P.

Well, yeah, you cannot ( same as me ) do as they do. They have 15+ years of experience on themselves, is only natural that they will scribble something and it look great. For us, who are still learning, it is a bit different. We first must know fundamentals perfectly, then we must practice daily, and a lot, and then...maybe, in future, we can get into that level.

Until then, we must try and try again. I, for once, am working whole day, from 10 am till midnight, drawing, with small pauses in between. All job, so i do not have currently much time to continue practicing fundamentals, in which i really suck.

If i didn't mention, go to: [link] and devour all these tutorials, they helped me a TON, and do not be frustrated, it will only deter you from your goal. If this is what you want to do, go for it, and do not quit. Also, how old are you? If you are under 18-20, do not worry, and enjoy life, get it out of your system, before you start working seriously.

Always go for scientific understanding of fundamentals, not just basic:what you see type. When we use science and apply it into pictures, it all makes more sense, for us and for viewers.
