    Post Rush-Fringed Pool

    Just trying my hand at using the spray stroke in conjunction with alphas alongside other techniques for painting foliage and clouds.



    All ZBrush. I had numerous occasions when ZList crashed the system while I was doing this - take my tip: save often! It usually worked at first, but after a while, and especially (but not exclusively) when scrolling large distances through the ZList palette slots, I got the old "illegal action" Z-death.

    I haven't tried the new brushes, but they obviously produce good results.

    I never get tired of landscapes and water...I could see myself as a kid grabbing a piece of cardboard and sledding down that grassy hill.....

    Very pretty FC. I really like the tree, looks like the spray stroke does a great job with it. I haven't had too much time to play with 1.5 yet, but I look forward to trying out all the new stuff

    Some nice stuff, Mr.FC...I especially like the delicate and painterly approach you take to clouds...They are always subtle, and ephemeral...



    I also like the fact that you did the reflection in the water a darker tone of sky...It suggests the expanse of sky above without having to paint it...

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

    Ron: careful at the bottom of that slide - don't want you getting wet! Though I guess from your leisure activities, you're probably used to that anyway.

    SC: Thanks - I've always enjoyed doing skies, and believe me I've had plenty of opportunity to observe overcast skies like this (and darker) this summer!
