This is a very nice - VERY nice - piece. I really love the contrast developed by the light at the bottom versus the cool, dark surface. Very cool!

Oooo the heat and light from underneath the rocks is great contrast with the dark above. And the edges and textures are fantastic here. You are
great with scenes and light. You really brought the whole composition together.

How long do these take you and do you use textures brush strokes or both.

:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014
Yeah, for client work I use whatever makes the job easier. Time varies. This one was rather fast because I was free to improvise :P

So it would help to use textures?  I just use brush strokes and am new to digital art (dont know how to apply or use textures).  Dope gallery.

:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014
well yeah, in photoshop you can make brushes out of textures or anything, 
or just have a few overlay photo-textures to get a bit of detail on top of some empty areas.

it depends on what you want your image to be, but you should definitely experiment with photos, see what you can learn from it.

Will you ever do a step by step tutorial of it? >w<
Reply
:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014
well, i dont think step by step tutorials are very informative, if i'll take the time to do something i'll probably record a video of the process
people keep asking me for something like that, but i never seem to find the right time or be in the mood for it... sorry :P
