Thanks so much Leogon. Always appreciated!! All painting done from scratch. No Photomanips. Photo of the Owl used as reference for the bird but all photos used are taken by myself. Very hard to draw or paint photorealistic without any photo references. Thanks again.
Thanks so much for the view and kind words NanamiKobayashi. Appreciated!! This painting took roughly about a month painting at least 2 to 3hrs. a day. I have 3 paintings always on the go and I switch around painting on each one. I have not yet done only one painting from beginning to end yet. Thanks again and take care.
Thanks so much simonpark81.Very appreciated!! The only photo used was for the owl which I took.(Taken at the Toronto Zoo). I do not use any autopaint type features at all. All hand painted. Used the Radial Blur filter in Photoshop CS6 for the background snow and no filter for the foreground snow. Gave the snow a little movement.Thanks again
it works really well! i only ask because im trying to learn to become more professional in my approach and that seems to be the way all digital pro's manage to get things just so... brilliant work sir! very well done.
