Digital paint practice by diablo2003 Digital paint practice by diablo2003
These are my first 3 attempts ever at digitally painting backgrounds. I used a lot of the Feng Zhu video tutorials as guides. The sci-fi image was first, the flying ships second, and the winter scene 3rd. Very rough and I still have a long way to go but I'm having a blast trying something new. All done in photoshop CS6 on a Cintiq.

Hope you dig!

Wow, looks excellent! I'm learning from Feng Zhu too, but I can't come up with this stuff you did. Need to expand my "visual library" ;) I really like the snowy one.

Yeah, Feng Zu is the boss hahaha. They're so cool!! Just when I saw it in the thumbnail I said, wait, this is that kind of awesomeness that I used to see in... EXACTLY, his videos *-* You're amazing! I personally admire all the concept artist because they're the base for all the amazing art in games, movies,etc. But exactly THIS kind of concept art, landscapes... I pretty much admire everyone who's able to do it, invent a landscape, pick it from your mind, and create just what you want in the canvas, isn't that magic? Breathtaking gallery by the way!
