Chalk Mountains by bloknayrb Chalk Mountains by bloknayrb
I have no idea where this came from. I remember *Broken-Lithium mentioning that he often uses chalk brushes to paint landscapes and I decided to just doodle around with the chalk brushes.

This is the result, no reference, just started as a doodle.

I would love any comments or crits, I want to get better at this.

Thank you! I actually used the chalk brushes that come with Photoshop, if I recall correctly.

This is really beautiful! The soft colors are lovely (those cool shadows are great), and the chalk brush added really nice texture. The only crit I can think of would be to vary the sizes of the mountains a little bit, since they all appear to be about the same height. Awesome otherwise though.:D

Thanks! Painting shapes seems to be a big problem for me; in particular all my mountains tend to look very similar :P It's something I need to work on.

Photoshop chalk brushes, though I do want to get better with real chalk on paper.

Good Job. Amazing work with the lighting. Never much paid attention with the chalk brushes but from now on I will try them.

Yeah they're great for laying down texture as opposed to the regular hard round brush.

Yeah you can rarely get good results for anything with just the plain round brush alone, a bit of texture goes a long way, especially in landscapes :nod:
