Artslam Mountain Study by Cacodaemonia Artslam Mountain Study by Cacodaemonia
Here's a quick environment/lighting study I did for Artslam based on this incredible photo of Mt. Fitzroy in Argentina. I don't know who the photographer was, but I found the photo on this free wallpaper site, so I guess it's safe to use for educational purposes. Anyway, this is a lot like what I imagine the homeland of the mountain people in my world to be like. Vast, frozen, impossibly high mountain peaks with small, high-altitude valleys nestled here and there. Very nasty place, though the mountain people and their yaks and goats manage to do pretty well. Need to come up with a name for them...

My Artslam progress...

Corel Painter 11, 2010.

Thank you. :) The colors are from the reference image, though, so I can't really take credit. I didn't color pick, but still.

Oh, but I have a reference that I eyeballed, so it's not like I came up with the composition or anything. ^^ I think it took me about 2 hours.

Just WOW.
The lighting and the complementary colors are very efficient. You did a very good job.
I should try to make this too. It seems to be a good exercise for landscape ambiances.

Well, the photographer did all the hard work! I just had to choose the right colors in Painter. ^^

Yeah, you should! I think environments are really difficult, but excellent practice.
