The Journey by aJVL The Journey by aJVL
Welp... Another cloudscape. Note to self; I need to know how to paint more than just cloud.
Also, I made this 2300x1200 for you guys to use as wallpaper, because I love you!

As always, critiques and suggestions are welcome.



Oh! It's been quite sometime since I did this...:

References to help guide me. 

It really just comes down to your style and whether you are satisfied with your painting at the end of the day.

My landscapes are starting to look better, my question is how do you make your characters look so go?
Like Rainbow Dash, I have the hardest time trying to get her mane to look right.
I just need help getting the first few steps started.

"Look so go"? What do you mean?

Rainbow dash's mane is difficult, which I agree, as you would need to harmonize that 7 colours with the background ambient and light. I reference other painting and try to mix the colour myself.

What program do you use? :o

aJVL Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012
Photoshop.

But remember, what's important is to have a good grasp of art fundamentals, such as lighting, colour, perspective and proportions. A person with a well-defined art fundamentals can easily paint using a lighter program, such as PaintTool SAI, just as good as a more professional software like Corel Painter and Photoshop.
