Environment concept for a personal game idea. I really could have stopped a lot sooner and still have established all the major elements but I wanted to play around with some painting techniques too. Cheers

WHOA. A Daily Deviation, I'm really amazed (and pleased). Didn't see that coming but it's very awesome. Thanks to everyone who stops by to look and all my friends who keep watching my hapless progress with art!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-10-01
Wastelands by *Damascus5 presents us with a wonderfully desolate and unfriendly world, with huge scale and thick atmosphere. Wouldn't want to get lost there, but it sure is nice to look at! ( Suggested by JackEavesArt and Featured by nervene )

I want to try to replicate this kind of landscape for one of my own Ideas. What brushes are you using? What tools? It looks very good!

Everything was handled in PS. Any of the versions that have custom brush options can do the job. One of the main brushes I used was a custom square brush set to follow stroke direction, opacity sensitivity and medium texture. Also used a grainy splatter brush to add small detail. The lasso tool was often used to create clean edges for the rocks and harsh shadows. Try working it up in black and white only first then when the values are solid add color in with Overlay and Color layers.
