Among the Stars by Self-Epidemic Among the Stars by Self-Epidemic

I needed more scenery for my gallery so here is a start, I was trying to get a little more comfortable with environments as working on this game is going to be difficult!

I'm going to be sci-fi'ing this piece up eventually too, as well as create more images for my portfolio!

Anyhu, a few hours with a reference used loosely to help me understand rocks!

Other artwork of mine:

Amazing work, but I think you could have made the clouds more defined? I dunno haha it's just my opinion. Other than that, I absolutely love what you did with the stars ;A;

I think you did a really good job at the night sky. Is there a lake in the front with trees around it or is it a city? It is not that easy to see. If it was a city I would draw the lighting differntly. It rather looks like there is a campfire in the distance. But it is only a sort of practice(?) and really very good for it. So overall really a good work and like I said the sky looks great and rocks look good, too : D

It is a nice piece with rather unusual lighting. It is like there is an unseen city at the base of the mountains shedding light upwards. Moonlit nightscapes are extremely difficult to do as the light is weak and more diffuse than day light

Stunning! Immediately, I was captivated by the serenity and power of this mere artwork. It's impressive the way you made the mountains reflect the sky and how the land in front of them is in complete darkness. Very intelligent and most definitely effective.

This looks amazing! Mountains, and environments in general, are difficult to draw, but you have captured them beautifully. ^_^ I love the colors, and the way the mountains are reflecting on the water.

truly beautiful ...  feels like viewing the main portion of the spiral of our galaxy and also as if one is on the verge of seeing the northern lights at any moment ...  have you ever been up in or near the arctic circle?   like Norway or someplace similar?     or perhaps portions of the highlands of Scotland might look like this on a winter's night?

#This is a very good example of scenery painting. The mountains look distinct, they look like real mountains, the shading is neat. The sky, especially the stars and clouds all look like they are real. The colors you chose really fit the atmosphere, the silhouette of the trees/plants that grow along the sides of the mountain ranges (or boondocks) is very fitting for it ^^

So what's up, darling? :B This is my favourite scene painting in your gallery. I adore the little yellow glow behind the trees & the way it so magically illuminates the mountains ♥ I love the way the clouds part in the middle to open up to the milky way in the sky & the beautiful still lake :) The purples & blues in this picture make it so eye catching!

Gorgeous, I love the light coming up from behind the foreground. Maybe it's a little town? Was this drawn of any place in particular?

Anywho, what's up darling?

Its looking great. If you're going to make it more sci-fi, perhaps adding more of a milky way type streak into the sky will help add an extra dimension to it

Yeah, I was trying but its quite difficult doing stars, which, considering they're little dots you would think it wouldn't be. Hm, I was going to put like, a ship or something in the background, but I realised I have no idea how! So I just kinda gave up till I got some replies :P

Is there supposed to be a vague face in the centre mountain or am I doing that thing humans do? Anyways, lovely piece, particularly the sky. I feel like there should be a bit more definition in the trees, especially by the light source.

Its actually from a reference, its how the image was, I think ( I may not be right ) that the trees are quite far away from the hills, so they have no light on them. That or the camera couldn't pick it up from the light behind, anyway I can link you the ref later if you wanted to see.

Nah, you know your stuff better than I do. I just thought it was odd that the trees were so dim compared to the rest of the image.

It was quite a quick piece of work, though where abouts do you feel its flattest? Sometimes with my art I just don't realise because I've been looking at it for so long.

Its a shame its just "nice" though, I hate that word! Haha! Still better buck up and work harder eh?

XerafCZ Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think its mostly the middle left part of the mountain. To be honest i cant remember exactly what my issue with it was. Its just a feeling.
Overall the terrain could be a bit rougher, but i do realize your style is more about suggesting what is there than about showing every small detail.

And being "just" nice isnt a bad thing, it means you can improve. And being able to improve is always good. If it was "perfect" it would be boring as fuck. Thats the word i hate by the way..."perfect"...especially when talking about art or persons looks.

Thank you, yeah, I have a lot to work on. but heck, I'm not about to give up! <:

I have also now realized that i have watched few of Bob Ross videos, so i might have been unconsciously comparing with him, which is a bit unfair to say the least :D.
