Early this year I sketched a little claustrophobic jungle scene of sorts, and I finally got around to laying down some colours. I'm using this as a practice piece for environment concepts and colour use, because they're both areas that I haven't drawn/painted much before and I think I'm pretty weak in. :/
At this point I'm just starting to work on adding a bit of detail to the tree trunks, but it's mostly just base colours.
There's either a bright light reflecting off of the water, or the water is actually glowing somehow, I haven't decided which yet... and I know I'll have to decide before I get more into the details. :3
What do you all think? I really appreciate any input on this.
Immediately the water itself struck me as being the light source, which is nice. Makes for a very eerie and lovely light setup. As it is the light source seems well defined as being the water, so you could run with that and develop the scene more with more refined light and shadow block-in.
The light appears to be sufficiently bright to introduce (in small amounts) other colors that could help act as story tellers, let the viewer see something interesting happening in this mystical forest scene.
that's so amazing.... i really like it.. good job ^^
