It's the weekend!

Here's a sketch I started with rough colors. I'll finish it sometime. The fire is supposed to overlap her a bit to look like a bird, once I figure out the colors for her clothes... @_@ Probably gonna take ages... props to whoever can tell which artist I'm paying homage to

I've decided to restart this because I still suck and I still want to do something about it. I've gotten a new job as a game artist but I've still got a lot of stuff i want to learn... so here!

I get always confused when I paint forests, because of all the shapes and lines I get easily lost? How do you do it? do you break it down into large distinct chunks first (because I have trouble choosing those as well)?

real quick one today

@Lamb: Something like that. The way that works for me is to basically 1. break it down into 3 planes, foreground, midground, background. 2. identify dominant elements in each plane. For example group according to trunks, ground, bg foliage, foreground grass, foreground foliage, etc. and then separately paint each part. This is just so you can handle one thing at a time when you're painting, so when you're actually painting you can concentrate on one element and you won't need to worry about all the confusing shapes and lines in the others. It's not so difficult to get the foliage right when you don't have to worry about the trees in front and behind it when you're painting. How you group it is up to you. Then you work through the picture part by part according to how you've grouped it. Hope it helps
