View Full Version : The Yellow Blossom Road
Trying new things. Reinforcing others. :D http://www2.zbrushcentral.com/zbc_uploads/user_image-1028092447gha.jpg
Did I annoy you with the water comment, DeeVee? If so, I sure didn't mean to. I'm not having a whole lot of luck around here recently... Sorry.
I really like the yellow flowers in this one. ~s~
Thanks for the reply Debs. You could never upset me, I admire your work too much. I only said that to make a joke, as you are quite right , seeing one of my images without water is rare indeed. Although in the early days I did quite a few without any water because I was frustrated that I could not get the water to look the way I wanted , so I came up with an easy technique and then for a while all my images had water.
So do not worry. I have removed that part of the intro. just in case another member thinks the same way.
Really nice one DeeVee!! I love looking at the details in all your pics and this one did not disappoint me!! Thank you for sharing it!
I like the flowers DeeVee. I also like the trees along the road and the trees in the distance. Very nice overall image. :D

those look like peach trees along side the road? and yes a pic without water is a rarity amongst your works......
Certain members say that they like to see how different members work. The steps they go through in creating an image. I thought I would experiment and try to do just that for anyone who might be interested.
The following are the steps taken in the creation of The Yellow Blossom Road" I hope you find it useful.
1 I lay out the sky and what will be the grassed area.
2 the clouds an worked on
3 I begin to lay in the road
4 I use the fiberbrush to add the gravel to the road, and to work on the background trees.
5 I use the fiberbrush to lay in the meadow grass.
6 I lay in the large trees.
7 the blossoms are added.
8 the first two roadside threes are created
9 the third roadside tree is added.
9a the fallen blossoms and wild flowers are created and small broad leafed shrubs added.

Wow DeeVee!!! You have outdone yourself again!!! (You took the road less travelled... so to speak). I love the intensity of the colours and the feeling of distance that you achieved. Your step by step is well done and very helpful. Thanks for including it. :tu: :tu: :cool:
I can't express how helpful such step-bysteps are for us recent converts. The approach to "document management" is perhaps the most perplexing for those of us used to more "traditional methods."
I hope this starts a bit of a trend, and I hope to participate once I have my own "chops" ironed out.
(Nice image, too!)
:cool: :D :cool:
It's a very pretty image, DeeVee. And the step by step is nice to see! Thanks for sharing!

a very beautiful painting the new style way and a great step by step, DeeVee! :tu: :tu: :tu: as the stages shown are upright size i wonder if you might be working in portrait format and then changing document size? if so might the reason be some effect (fiberbrush?) you discovered in your strenuous experiments? or did you just resize the exported stages of development to display them in that beautiful way (guess so :D)
i know you didnt ask for a 121 and i bet the road you have in mind looks like you depicted it, but my suggestion would be to stretch the middle roadside tree a bit for the perspective the beholders eyes usually is expecting sake :) just an idea!
Jaundel thanks for the input it is appreciated. All the images were done in landscape configuration and exported so that they could be changed to jpegs for posting. I had so much trouble that when I finally got it done, I realized that they were all squashed to the vertical portrait orientation. to tell you the truth I was just too frustrated to try and change them to the landscape orientation again as they were originally. Sorry I goofed. Your suggestion about the tree is a great one, thanks. It has not grown, it is stunted
:ex: :D :D :D :D

WOW a lovely scene
-true Beauty Joe :tu: :tu: :tu: :tu:
Your plantlife just keeps getting better. I really like the addition of the flowers and blossoms. Very pretty :tu:
Thanks for the walkthru. It is so great to see how others work. One question though if you don't mind. Is the ground a tilted plane or is this a flat image?
Look forward to seeing more of your images
Thanks Tag. The plane is flat. I am sorry I did not go into more detail. This is the first walk through I have tried, I am sure that the next one will include more detail such as brushes, settings and other important information. If there is anything any one would like to know just ask and I will try to answer.

Maybe no water, but still the instantly recognisable DeeVee touch. Nice one. :tu: :tu: :tu:
