    need decent references.

    hey guys keep your eyes peeled for good ice-flow pics such as this -

    need decent references.

    that or any of mountains and lakes (together in the one pic). ive googled a couple o hundred but there isnt much quality stuff out there. if there is its quite often with a big watermark over it and i cant afford to order prints at the moment. anyone with good resources for this sorta thing? online would be preferrable.

    thanks in advance!

    http://resurgere.deviantart.com/gallery/ <- he has a lot of good stock photos. Although I haven't been able to find the one with ice floats, but perhaps you can take a look at his cloud and mountain photos meanwhile.

    Good luck with the ice float search. Only thing i can think of is go to some science, explorer type of sites. =/

    There IS a reference section where you can ask for references or search thru stuff already posted.

    NationalGeographic.com would probably be a good place with all the articles(and pictures) they have on the arctic.

    to be honest i was originally after a sunrise shot to paint, but i couldnt find anything all that.. magical(?) i thought a nice ice-flow pic would be a good substitute, but then i stumbled upon this.

    Alaskan Sunrise

    the idea was (and still is) to paint 5 kids flying over an almost fantastical landscape in a photorealistic style. i am planning to do it all digitally, then project the finished product up onto a wall with a data projector for exhibition and moderation purposes.

    it (the image) is perfect! im really stoked, it precisely what i was after - the mix of light and colour. it couldnt be too dark as i wanted the children to stand out, but it couldnt be regular blue skies, i wanted the vibrant reds, pinks and oranges that only a sunrise could offer. and the ground had to be interesting, yet not overpowering, and simple enough to paint.

    *does a happy dance*

    thanks for your input guys, ill show the progress in the WIP section soon enough!

    ... on second thoughts, that pic will not work. meh. ok, a definitive approach, i have it set in my mind...

    im after aerial photography of clouds, like when youre flying in a plane. if it has mountain peaks then thats an added bonus. tall columns of clouds would also be great.

    heres a few samples of the rough sort of thing im after -

    here's a couple of thumbs from an "iceberg" search.
