Legendary River by jjpeabody Legendary River by jjpeabody
I started with a value sketch, putting down the general composition and lighting that I wanted. It was really rough, but the main elements where there. From there, I overlayed some textures. Now usually I just do soft light overlays, but this time I did both a mix of soft light textures and just normal overlays where I blended the texture into the rest of the picture. I think it came out really well.

Anytime! :D

Fair enough. :) But do consider my advice; with talent like yours you could make lots of money from making environmental concepts! ^_^

This really is lovely! The seamless transitions with your hard and soft textures is amazing! It reminds me of a faraway place that I seem to go with my love...

Has some really nice focal points without breaking up the image.
Also I love starting in value.

Impressive piece!
