Mountains by sandara Mountains by sandara
A thank you piece for :iconslunge: who so kindly gave me a year's subscription on DA. :)
Quite a bit of it was painted using Ditlev's excellent brushes, which can be found here : [link]

The sunrise only lights up one peak, making it look like a landscape from stereotypical heaven - the rest look like something you might see in steroetypical hell.  The day will bring hope and hide the dangerous, evil tidings of the place, and at nightfall, the place is transformed, revealing the true nature of the peaks, stripping them of their graceful demeanour.

Amazing, and so poetic!  I love it.  Do more!

Amazing! I love textures that you used on sky and other places, they look much more interesting than plain, airbrushy, smooth brushes.

Hot damn man you have no idea how deeply in love I am to landscapes.....man I gotta try painting them again lol looking at it here is starting to inspire me. The highlight in that top mountain LOL SERIOUSLY MAN I LOVE THAT ESPECIALLY.

Ok so I have a question. People say brushes now but can be talking about actually painting with brushes or using photoshop and such lol so which did you use? And also, where did you start to make this? Like, did you begin with the sky or with the mountains, etc (Because when it comes to drawing or painting in general, I always get stuck on where it is best to start)

Stunning!

The added texture gives it that depth you'd see in a real painting and you managed to add subtle strokes and flaws that make it feel like bumps on the canvas sometimes left behind by heavier gesso.

My art professor would always claim that digital leaves out a little something compared to digital. I would expect this to give him pause.

I guess looking at a painting on a pc screen, the difference between traditional and digital are getting smaller. But if it were printed out, then it's hard to compare.
