Enjoyed painting this one. I thought it'd be the hardest one, because of all the colors, but it was alright actually :)

Nice job, I think I'm gonna have a hard time with the leaves using a normal brush, will have to try and find some kind of leaf one for gimp.

just make one it's quicker and will be more precise to what you're painting :)

Yeah but I like to know how to do things "properly" in the sense that if I was panting this traditionally I couldn't go and make a little leaf shaped brush, so I want to know how to tackle it just using a normal round brush.

All the tools at your disposal are just tools, there's no more proper way of doing it. if I was painting traditionally, I'd get a hard brush with an elongated tip and use that, or maybe even make a stencil of I had to paint the same shape over and over. making a brush in gimp or photoshop is just another means to an end :)

But it's not really in the brush either, it's in how you use it :)

Yeah I understand that, I'm just saying personally I'd like to find a way to do it using just one brush with no effets or anything, that will come with time and practice though.

wow! yur quick with the 21st XD

really like the splotchy grass/foliage in the middle foreground... the blues, yellows and greens are combined really well. Wanted to zoom in for a closer at the mountains, but i think you captured the lighting very well getting that feeling that its truly distant.

Looking forward to this one myself. This gives me some ideas on how to approach this one.
