I wanted to do levitation for the monk but that would make him look too......divine.

Wonderful landscaping with some exquiste details, a smokey and luscious background focus and stunning, picturesque landscaping work. Where is this little, magical place, tucked away in the forests? I wonder....
Congratulations on great work and thank you for sharing it with us :)

THanK YoU :sun: I must say I'm quite comfortable painting scenes with natural elements since I started out painting on real canvas (traditional oil landscapes) although I'm trying to move away from my comfort zone to work on other genres. I'm always telling my watchers to be patient with me as I improve at snail's pace though my work is nowhere near those Hollywood conceptual artworks.

Nowhere near? I've seen worse - watercolour splotches worse - on professional high-end productions in games. You could've fooled me! This is still great. We'll be patient - we know the good stuff's coming! Try not to worry about the rate you improve - constant practice at it will almost always get you on the mark. Good luck and thanks again! :)

You're welcome :) I wished I could sit under the shadow of some conceptual master artists as an apprentice and learn thru their daily routines instead of just attending their 3day workshops. Thanks for bringing depth and interest to my work - your descriptions are like little stories and add a different dimension :nod:

I know how you feel, there's a lack of intimacy when an artist is teaching a group, you don't really get that one-on-one closeness that helps you to create. Short of standing over their shoulder and watching them draw, some of the more prolific artists have tutorial books I'm sure you've heard of that try to give some insight into how they work and are pretty close to being there with them. Have a look around, I'm sure you'll find something if you want a next-best-thing. Thank you for your kind words about, well, my words! Means a lot :) Take care and keep up the wonderful work.
