    DSG 813: Fantasy Environment: CASCADING WATERFALLS 'NEATH THE DARK AND ANCIENT RUINS

    Mysterious.

    Evocative.

    Sliced rock black and slick; Thick bodies of moss languishing in the fat of ceaseless vapours.
    Glistening ribbons of silver fray into silken mist. From the severed wrist of a fallen tree spatters and pours the blood of the earth and air.
    In the motion, in the roar, in slow carving of stone do we hear the echoes of the stories of a civilization that must have been some real heaven, at least for a time.

    Eriboss, Nike, heri, lukavi - thanks for yesterday's comments! Spent a little extra effort on today's pic for that.

    charcoalArtist - the ear was one of the many spots I didn't go back to render in detail... heh. That's the intial sketch layer showing through.

    Only noticed the collarbone amongst other stuff after I posted it though. Bad habit of mine, when working fast, I just render and don't bother to look at the whole pic. Today's one will prolly have tons of stuff I'll noticed after I post.

    Stopped at hour and half... spent most of it designing the ruins.

    What was once home to a magnificent operation harnessing the water's power for the glory of the Fhret, has fallen into the hands of time, nature and petty thieves. All that remains of it's former glory is the imagination of anyone who happens to pass by and hear the thunder of the falls.

    Hi there .. my first post .. I'm really a nooby, but hey, I've seen so many beautiful images on this forum that I've decided to partecipate .. my waterfall is quite wrong, but is so fun to try .. about 30 minutes with Deep Paint 2 (I've just discovered yesterday that it is now free .. I'm just experimenting .. quite good .. the only problem is the save in jpg .. it messed all the colors .. oh well, the image was crap anyway ). Please be patient, I'm new to digital painting (well, I'm new to painting also).

    About 30 mins in PS, playing around with cartoon style to see if I like it or can pull it off. I've never seriously attempted any pen and ink stuff with PS and it's not as easy as I thought it would be! (go easy on me!)

    Jabberwookie- very nice alien-like landscape concept, but it would be a stronger image overall if there was more of a difference in texture between the water and the rock
    Eri- that image is really dynamic. I like it, but it's tough to see the difference between the landscape and the ruins
    Heri- the composition feels a little extreme, lots of negative space, but I like it though I can't explain why, I really like all the colors in the waterfall
    Mach- nice sense of scale and I like the concept of the ruins
    Everybody I didn't mention already- good stuff, lots of nice moods and dynamic compositions

    "Pilot Color Pen No. 101" Marker. A few hours.

    Blackthorn - Nice. Almost looks like acrylics or something. Maybe it is.
    Machzero - Really nice design on the ruins. The greens are a bit too saturated.
    Hamsta - I like it. Maybe the brush you used is too big though?
    Heri - Looks a bit too much like ice. The water should shoot over the cliff's edge.
    Orporick - Good mood. With some more details, it could be pretty good.
    Pechu - Perspective is a bit skewed. Good colours.
    DuneFishUK - A passable picture, if it weren't for the blurriness.
    Eriboss - Your loose pictures always impress me.
    jabberwookie - It's not as bad as you make it out to be.
    Nike - Very nice.
    NKunleashed - The lines are too twitchy for that full blown cartoon look.
