This was quite impressive and helpful for me. I always get hung up on the details when I do a landscape. If you would consider it, I'd love to see how you do a plains or a peice featuring a field of some kind.

Don't get your hope up though...Well, howabout something new and current character you suggest (from video games, comics, novels "Death Note" and such), but I pick the girl?

idrawgirls said…
Thank you, I use mostly default in combination with some custom I made.
Look on the right side menu, there should be a tutorial on how to make them.

Thank you for tutorial on env.I like this field.If you know a blog like this one or conceptships but only for env. design or landscapes please say me.
And your blog it's a treasure (mainly for character.), a free treasure ^^
idrawgirls said…
kevline> thanks brother! :) I will try to do more env. As for the blog like this on Env...I am afraid I have bad news for you. I might be the first or the only one who consistently does this every day/week.
Donno, try youtube or any art forum...good luck and see you around.

Oh wow.... it's really interesting to see how this has come along from just a rough sketch to a completely realistic waterfall..
I quite jealous.. but then again, I never want to do realistic art (not saying I'm not capable, but...maybe if I practiced I might get good at it)
I'm quite envious of Photoshop users of their range of brushes.. it's quite difficult to get an equivelent effect in sai... but then again.. we have a watercolor and a [BLEEP]ing PROPER blur brush, so HA!!!
...... really fantastic work, I must say.. I'm currently needing to draw waterfalls, soooooo......

this just looks sooooo~ amazing *____* you inspired me to try such environmental concepts, too hihi. From each game I really like the concepts are always the best of everything xDD

And I've a question, maybe someone else already asked it somewhere... but well, which layer and/or brush modes do you use for such environmental drawings?
idrawgirls said…
Aya> sorry for the late reply, I just saw your post just now. Thanks for the kind comments. Cheers!

Kyu> Thank you, I guess my mission is accomplished. :) As for your question... on the right column of the blog you will see Q/A in the scroll bar MENU look there, and below the scroll bar MENU there are also more info in various topics.
Good luck and read on! :)
