View Full Version : Tree

My first painting with artrage I feel confident enough about, to post here..
The no blending tool thing actually helped me out here; the tree and grass would have been a lot smudgier, were I able to blend .. Instead, I used all these little strokes, which actually work better I think =D

The contrast was adjusted a little bit and the black frame was added in photoshop, other than that, it's all artrage.

Very cool, azathothgr. The tree is very richly textured. The the lighting of the scene is great. And I like the girl with the balloon!

Nice. This is magical.

That balloon looks like it may have attempted to float away if the little girl hadn't caught it. I really enjoy this painting.

Gorgeous, dramatic lighting. The tree is very pretty, but I'm very glad you decided to add the little girl and the balloon. They really make this image for me! I also love the silhouette of foliage in the foreground. Thanks for sharing!
