Mountain Pass Cove


This is a little idea that occurred while I attempted to create a Photoshop/Painter workflow. I will probably always gravitate towards PS, but Painter really has some great stuff. I find myself going back and forth between the two, often switching when I get bored or don't feel very good about what is happening to the piece. Somehow changing working environments and tools seems to get the creative sparks burning sometimes.

Like most of my posts, this is just another super-quick little idea that may or may not find its way into a more finished piece later.

jp, your work is so manly! i'm very proud of you, i think your color is getting better and better : ). in this mountain cove, i imagine there are rock candies formed like stalagmites... *drool

yes jp. give in to the dark (painter) side.

na i agree, both sides have their treats. ps has the speed and agility.. but painter gets the badass lightning from their fingertips!!

I really like this. Very Lord of the Rings.

Chrystal, thanks for the very nice compliment. I haven't considered rock candy, but it might be there, hidden somewhere...

Dan, I'm hoping to get this to a finish sometime. I'm glad you enjoy the vibe!

Jehan...you and I have unfinished business...the lagoon, high noon!
