A Couple Things

Okay's the troll - he's been on the backburner a bit but he's still a project I'm working on. The main problem I ran into was the castle, which took me a bit to get right. It's looking better now, but there's a fine balance between making it TOO detailed, and not detailed enough. I've gotta work on that still.

Other than that, here's another piece I recently finished. Experimenting with using photos as direct reference and then painting over them to imitate their textures. The mountains are hand painted in that way, which was excruciating, but really helped me understand how to imitate their rocky terrain.

I wish I had incorporated more light contrast with it, because the whole thing seems really dark. That's what I was going for, but it turned out moreso than I wanted it. Still like how it turned out and it was a great learning experience.

See, I do post stuff here!
