Glowy Forest Doodle (video) by Elucidator Glowy Forest Doodle (video) by Elucidator
Totally forgot to upload this here. I did it a couple weeks ago as a study for some other projects I'm working on. Took me 2 hours 45 minutes, I think.

You can see a time-lapse video here: VIDEO

Thanks for looking! I'll be back with some fully rendered illustrations soon! The hour draws nigh!

Pssssst! If you want to follow more of these kinds of doodles, sketches, WIPS and videos, you can follow along on FB!

Hi there! That's tough to say. I knew I wanted a deep blue all around, so it was like a dense rainforest at night. I used a lighter blue in the background to add some atmospheric depth. So to show most of the scene, I used light and dark blues. For the glowing ruin or obelisk, I wanted it to contrast the environment, so I used a yellower light, illuminating the plants in the area very strongly to get the vibrant green. More than anything, I just did what I felt. It's important to develop good sensitivity, so you know when your image is too light, too dark, too saturated or too monochromatic. And then you trust your taste, haha. Sorry I can't explain more than that.

Holy, amazingly incredible! This Glowy Forest is stunning and The Landscape is incredible! The statue, markings, character, spear, plant life, mountains, pose, atmosphere, branches, sky, concept, composition, uniqueness, style, lighting, colors, and other details are also spectacular! Epic-ally awesome work! :iconsobeautifulplz:

Thanks! Fun story: It's actually a bit off compared to what I wanted. I was working on a poorly-calibrated monitor (my Cintiq) and forgot to colour-check on my Apple screen. Afterwards, when I watched the video, I realized what a dumbass I was. There was too much black and it was all weirdly balanced. If you watch the video, especially at the beginning, you can see that it's way too dark and saturated. I tried to salvage it as best as I could :P.

Thanks, glad you enjoy it! For me it was just a fun little exercise to prepare me for painting a more in-depth shot :D

If that was just exercise, than I can safely say you have incredible talent. :cutenod:

Thank-you! That's flattering! Though I prefer to think of it less in terms of talent and more in terms of "number of nights spent painting instead of going out with friends", haha. By the time those really get into the triple digits, you start getting output far above what talent can generally allot.

xD I'm not much of one for going out with friends over drawing either so I think we both can agree on that 
Still, you I think you have great talent. I hope more people recognize your work ^-^
