Texture and Light


Pushing for more interesting texture and light in these. Found a random rock texture that served as my 'blank' canvas, and just started painting over top of it, using the existing patterns of the rock to suggest design elements while I worked. I also used an excellent custom brush made by a friend at work. I'd give her a link but she doesn't have a blog. Get a blog, Elena!

David - Oh, I just searched Google for "rock texture" and picked one that caught my eye, and started painting on it.

Adam - haha, I'm flattered man. Maybe one day, when I don't suck as much.

I really liked the Rainboots ART. That's at least unexpected.

Best!

These are so cool, so much atmosphere - I'd love to find out a bit more about how you paint over/with the texture if you have time to explain! :)
