Digital painting with PaintTool SAI English Pack. A tribute to nature itself and also a memento to my fellow HON friends back then on university.

The HiRes looks nice, but if I see your step one, you've lost quite some details in the background which imo looked more interesting (or maybe the final result is a bit on the dark side). The fishes look good as faraway silhouettes. Good luck!

i think both have there charm and are nice should keep two versions maybe

author says:

Thanks Waz, Eladine, I find it very hard to do sketchy type work. I see so many here and elsewhere and really like the looks and style ,but I have a problem of not being able to leave things alone till it is sharp and pretty realistic or at least blemish free. This was almost not entered because I really felt it was far from finished, so your comments make it a bit better. thanks.

Frosty Daylight - created by tinstoy

In this piece I used five colors. This is an imaginary scene done in acrylic. There is no source image. (5 years and 2302 days ago)

Very nice composition, but the tree branches are too symmetrical on the left, like the teeth on a comb. You need to paint some branches in the middle of the tree facing the viewer. Branches need to overlap and grow from different directions, not just the sides.

Here is a tutorial about painting pine trees you may find helpful:

Peaceful day at the Lake - created by tinstoy


Peaceful day at the Lake
Favs: 0SBS: 4Hi-resRank: 9/9Score: 50.7% (0)15497 views

This is an acrylic painting. It is all imagination, so there is no source image.
During the process I only used five colors: Cerulean Blue, Burnt Umber, Primary Yellow, Deep Green and White, if white is considered a color.
For the mountains I used the painting knife. The rest was done with brushes.
I am learning how to paint, so I am open to any criticism or suggestions. Thanks... (5 years and 2302 days ago)

Good overall composition, the eye is nicely led across the painting.

Your biggest problem is one of being consistent in your painting.
The tree trunks suddenly get very thin from thick, and you over did the above ground roots a bit too much.
Your coloring is also inconsistent. This is most noticeable in the sky. Generally, the sky is slighly darker at the top, getting a little lighter as you get nearer the earth. Your sky has like a "light colored halo" around the picture.
This brings up the biggest consistency problem, the water reflection. Your sky is darker and bluer, with clouds that the sky doesn't show, while your trees are LIGHTER in the water reflection. .

You also have the edges of the water a bit too perfect, more like a swimming pool or a puddle after a rain. If you study some photos of landscapes, you will see that nature is seldom quite so regularly shaped and spaced.

Here is an example to show you - Notice the coloring of the sky and the trees, and along the edges of the water:

It's a good start, you will get better the more you practice.

For someone that is new to painting you surely take on a difficult subject matter in a bold fashion. For this you are to be commended highly. Honestly I can not say enough about the courage a person displays when trying something new and then posting it in a forum such as this. Way to go Man!
As far as suggestions for you to improve.........do another one!
Message me if I can help at all. If you do Netflix there is an Acrylic painting video under special interests. Follow along and they will have you moving ahead fast. Best of luck!
Oh.....and fan brushes are great for grass.

avatar Momof4boyoboys

Yes...I agree with above....keep painting and paint what you love!!!!! Good Job author!

author says:

honestly, a landscape is one thing i didn't think to be so difficult til i set out doing it..and i realized, i really had no idea what to do with it. ..
Good luck on this, and all your future ones. i look forward to seeing you grow as an artist!!!

Morning Waterfall - created by Toothpick134


Morning Waterfall
Favs: 6SBS: 13Hi-resRank: 3/9Score: 59.9% (25)26593 views

I hope you like my new entry :) I painted it from my imagination.This is painted in Oil Paints with the wet-on-wet technique. This is my second EVER painting so I'm open to all sorts of criticism and advice.
I'll try to explain what I did since his painting was done a while ago and I didn't take pictures.. Sorry.. Well..
Before applying the oil paint I covered the canvas with a thin even coat of Bob Ross' Liquid White to allow me to blend colours on the canvas.. The Tree Bark was done with a palette knife and so were the mountains and rocks, first a dark outline and then gently touching the canvas with the knife that has some titanium white onto it. Finally the water fall was done with a fan brush and the splashes with a fan brush full of paint and I sort of flicked it on if you know what I mean! :D
Hope you like it! (5 years and 2308 days ago)
