Magic Mountains (see descrip. for video making of) by Katikut Magic Mountains (see descrip. for video making of) by Katikut
Many of you ask me how I make backgrounds. Well, there's no real method. It changes all the time with me The best solution is not to explain (I wouldn't be able to explain) but to show. Video making of this drawing here:

REAL TIME MAKING OF (1hour): [link]

ACCELERATED PROCESS (10 min) : [link] (may not work in Germany since Youtube blocks it >_<) But the video is still the same, it's just quicker :)

Lovely digital brush work, lovely choice of colours - and extra points for the videos of course!

But I have to admit, the small white stripe across the water looks a at that particular place on the lake a little off to me. Maybe it's only me. I guess it is supposed to be a light reflection from the sun...?

May I say: A HUGE thank you for posting the video on how you painted this. It really inspires those of us who are still not-so-great at digital painting. :iconthanksplz:

It depends, most of the time I download them, but for this drawing, I've made most of them, or they are default in Photoshop. :)

J'irai regarder la vidéo quand j'aurai une connexion internet décente, mais l'image est superbe !
Tes vidéos-tutos sont les meilleures, j'ai hate de voir ce que ça donne pour les backgrounds ! ^^

Ben pour le coup c'est pas un tuto, mais on voit tout ce que je fais pour faire ce dessin, j'espère que ça aidera! Ah et si tu es chez free comme moi, oui ça doit ramer un peu ^^'

Ayéé, j'ai vu la vidéo ! ^^
C'est superbe ! Le rendu est très beau, avec des brosses assez simple au final. C'est très enrichissant même si ce n'est pas un tutoriel a proprement parler, oui ! :)
Mais j'aime beaucoup regarder des making of, c'est parfois plus utile que des tutos.

(oui j'était chez mes cousines, c'était free ^^" mais là de retour à la maison, et vive l'internet haut débit héhé )

Ten seconds in I spotted your cleverness, and my mind went "why am I such an idiot for not thinking of that...". A mosaic filter over a picture of potential color theme. Brilliant. (if this is not the case and I misinterpreted your swatches forgive me, it inspired me nonetheless.) I have been struggling (not really struggling, it just takes me longer to produce them than I'd like) with the backgrounds to my graphic novel. This small trick really opens up a lot of doors in the realms of color and atmosphere. Thanks for the epiphany.
