I'm trying to train my environment painting skills and I absolutely have no idea where to begin.
I cannot tell you how many times I begin an environment piece and it just bombs. I'm having trouble.."setting up" the drawing.
I tried beginning with line...and I tried beginning with just value.
I think one of my major problems is that I try to paint a picture that is a bit adventurous for a beginner to say the least.
So what I'm asking is where does one "start" when learning how to paint environments?
Should I begin with simple forest scenes and other places of the like?
Should I start with learning how to paint elements of an environment (like rocks/trees/water)?
What do you guys recommend? I'm pretty desperate at this point. /drylaugh/
