Re: With verve into the light

Thanks guys, really appreciated.

It's real Zen and I almost start to feel a tiny little mediation and get a little glimpse on a very, very old and rich culture. But trees, well they are not too easy.

No website Pilou.
Hey, these are all somehow copies or interpretations of old masters.
They deserve the honour. ;)

Before Ka-Z gave me this very informative intro in concept painting, I tried one myself. A concept without concept. Just started.

Re: With verve into the light

This was started as a quick cloud tutorial and ended in respect to one big personality of last century.

Re: With verve into the light

That's very sweet! Love the stork, too! :D
With clouds is such a tricky story. You have to understand that they are not cotton balls! I'll try to explain that a bit more in the tutorial I've got planned, but it'll be tough. They are diffuse refraction and reflection combined. In some way they eat the light and you see their belly glow, so to say, but if a wispy part of their "skin" floats before the "belly", it would be darker, for example, not because it doesn't catch the light, but because it's volume is not dense enough to diffuse the light that goes onto them, yet it refracts the light that was meant to go through them from the bright cloud behind the wispy piece. It's really, really hard to think about it, but I'll try to find a way to make it easier.
For me it's still tough to make really good clouds without having to focus. There are neat little tricks to make cute Bob Ross like clouds (or Kevin Hill for that matter). They can be just sufficient. But if you want to go nuts...uh... it'll take great discipline and focus.
Here to help! :D

Re: With verve into the light

Magnificent!!!
The nicely done bird is only amplified by the wing-craft.

Oh, what I could do with a stylus.

Clouds baffle me. I study their lighting all the time. My favorite are the thunderheads (to your east) illuminated by the setting sun (from the west.)
I love the orange and pink iridescent glows back-dropped by glowing edges and those inexplicable super dark-silver areas... It's hard to quantify on canvas what's so easy to remember in the mind's eye...
I think I'll try to paint some.
