Firn-Firn swamps (Commission) by jjpeabody Firn-Firn swamps (Commission) by jjpeabody
This is a commission that I did for :iconfeliane:

A swamp on some distant planet similar to earth. High mountains border this picturesque swampland. Rocks protrude out of the landscape everywhere on this planet.

I can almost picture some colorful and exotic indigenous waterfowl here.

Awesome landscape. The render looks so realistic!
The composition is pretty good, the flow is established in a looping way (imo) that grant your eyes the freedom to move around getting all the details without focus on a particular object.
Values and colours are lifelike! the sense of depth and scale really give this painting a great feel.
There are just 2 little things that i don't really like: the first is that grass detail in midground on the left, you can clearly see some instances of the brush used that are not blended with the rest.
The second are some rock detail: the closest rock looks amazing on first glance, but after coming back to it you can see that the contrast between the smooth left part and the hard strokes on the right it's pretty big. Same thing fo the mountain peak in the upper right corner.
These are just my opionion btw ^^ and sorry for the long comment!
I wish I could paint amazing pieces like this. Cheers :)

This reminds me of the swamps that can be found in Final Fantasy 9.
It look so majestic and very well done.
The depth in this piece is astonishing.
The colors, the water especially is very nice.
I just love this.

I don't get it. What's the point of painting over a photograph? I mean, I get matte painting but it's not presented this way.
Reply
:iconjjpeabody:
jjpeabody Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Because it wasn't that way. It wasn't a matte and I didn't just paint over a photo. I used some photos for textures, but that's it. It started as a rough sketch: [link]

Oh wow this is amazing, as always ofcourse :w00t:
I'm still learning digital painting and so I really love looking at your art and trying to see how you did things :D
Could I ask you one question? Do you paint/draw everything yourself or do you also use images?
Reply
:iconjjpeabody:
jjpeabody Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks!

It really depends on the painting. I paint everything freehand first, then I use other images as texture to further define the image.
