Hi there! I've chosen you as the 73rd person for my 200 Comments Project Challenge. Basically I'm giving comments to 200 different people in a time frame within a week :D (Big Grin)

Congratulations on the DD, you really deserve it due to how gorgeous this drawing this! It's just like waltzing into a fantasy world and getting caught up in adventure in such a big area. The natural scenery is just so magical and the amount of sheer detail is something to be envied of. Very fantastic! :)

I love the picture. This is a really beautiful landscape. It gives you the sense and vibe of adventure. It also captures the description "Treasure hunting" perfectly. I also like the girl protagonist. Cute design :)

Sorry to bother, but could you give a few pointers on how to approach doing landscape paintings like this? Like uh, just stare at scenic pictures? What does it take really to get some successful pieces like this done? Its fine if you don't answer, I'm just curious and lacking in the talent department when it comes to backgrounds. Beautiful work!

hello !
I'd say patience is the key, you need to do some reseachs and tutorials. don't hesitate to try and download new stuffs. for instance, photoshop's brushes that you think doesn't fit your art style. 
I also have many paintings and photos saved in my computer I use as references. (like more than 15go of environnement only)

so yeah start searching for tutorials on deviantart, cgtalk, etc
and if you don't know where to start looking for amazing scenery photos try out this website (despite the name it's SFW) :

Woa i love your colorpalette on BG works ;w; <3 Do you have a selected set of colors you chose from or do you always mix them together? They seem pretty consistent on your other deviations as well :O Do you have any tips for such vivid colorselection? Or some Step-by-Step screenshots of your works? I'd really be interested in such ;w; <3

well that's interesting.
I used to select "what color would fit here and there" and take randomly in the color picker of photoshop. and worst of all I used to add a lot of black to make shadows.
now I forced myself to use a RYB (red-yellow-blue) color wheel and mix the colors to create contrasts. just like painting in real life !
using the hue-saturation make your contrasts a lot more interesting than just increasing/decreasing the value. 
but yeah most of all, I think you need to make experiments to realize it. :D

Oh thanks for those tips! I'm definately going to try that in the future :) Another question though, in what form do you use a RYG wheel? I know for this one you said you used PS and SAI; is that a SAI tool?

:iconamylrun:
Amylrun Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
haa nonono, it's not a specific tool, it's just the colors I saved in the swatches (of sai and photoshop)
colors like these www.framedreality.com/wp-conte…
