Winter Travellers II

Although I live an area of sunny winters without any snow I've always been fascinated by snow covered mountains. The snow/rock patterns and their value contrasts are something I really love...add a few drops of fantasy and this is what I got to... Happy New Year!

Winter Travellers

Exploration of new techniques can sometimes lead to satisfactory results, although, most of the time, they end up in the garbage folder.
With this one I made heavy use of Photoshop's lasso tool in the initial stages and sticked to only two brushes throughout the entire painting process: a more textured one with opacity set to pressure and a round one with pressure set to size+opacity.

Blue Abyss 2

I wasn't quite satisfied with the outcome of the first Blue Abyss image so I started again from the same initial sketch and this is what I came up with. Even if it didn't improve I wanted to share this second experiment.
