So a week or so ago a friend of mine was working on a digital mountain painting for a study from a photograph. He wanted feedback so I did a paint over for him.
Here is his painting.
Now my biggest concern was when he sent this over to me were the values and saturation. Right now everything is way too flat and dull. Not only that but the edges were way too soft for mountains.
My paint over.
Here I just painted the values more like they are in the photograph, greater contrast better sense of light and shadow.
The photo ref. I don't know the source.
Now its up to him to finish it.
