Forest WIP by Catwagons Forest WIP by Catwagons
God I hate moss.

The tree is very much inspired by :iconalectorfencer:'s Plant Spirit character.
Deadline for this tomorrow. Check it out when it's done!

Cool. Kinda reminds me of that Frazetta painting (4.bp.blogspot.com/-Rdd5asr4xIg... ) . A trick I use when doing Moss and foliage is to bust out a texture brush and go crazy, then paint over it. Saves lot of time :)

I know what you mean about moss, haha! I love the bits of blue that you have on the trunk. Maybe incorporate a little more in the background, that'll give it some distance/depth and make it pop so much more :) I look forward to seeing the finished product!

it's coming along great!  Do you plan to add something in the extreme foreground or enhance the light?  I'd maybe play with some shadow areas in the foreground or middle ground to give it some extra layers.  It's gorgeous though, great job!

Yeah, it's all coming into fruition sooner or later. :) This is the background for a commission, so there will be characters later, but I'm keeping the background itself for my portfolio. I'm gonna put some stuff in the foreground/etc to make it have a little more depth.

This is absolutely lovely.  Your scenery works always inspire me to work on my own backgrounds.

Aww, thank you! 

Scenery is fun, I find it a lot more relaxing and organic than characters, perhaps because I'm so used to doing the other.
