guided by storms by etchpea guided by storms by etchpea
I love clouds and storms, and when I realized I hadn't drawn a piece with a prominent sky I had to do one.

this is the same character from these pieces: [link] [link]

Those are some of the best interpreted clouds I've seen. Great job on the color scheme.

This is so gorgeous! I'm absolutely in love with the contrasting colors you've used here. The painting is so striking, and brings up many feelings for me. I think the character adds a lot of story to the work, as well. I can't stop staring at all the lovely details, from the light shining through her gown to the beautiful clouds... Superb!

I hope you don't mind, but I couldn't help but suggest this as a Daily Deviation. It is so deserving!

Beautiful picture man, I mainly do sketches but am hoping to work like this. Is it primarily a sketch and then painted in photoshop? Or do you use other programs as well?

Nowadays, I usually do very quick, rough paints in photoshop on one layer which I then paint over. This was the beginning crappy paint for this piece - [link]
although you can see where I started to detail the cloud along the bottom ridge on the left. The composition didn't change at all from the beginning, but often I'll do a few super quick composition sketches either in photoshop or on paper, just to get an idea of where I'm going. Also, sometimes I work in greyscale first and then colorize, but this one was color from the start. I do occasionally scan my sketches and do a paint in photoshop.
