Very nice work, dark and creepy. I like the trees off to the left and the jagged cliffs! Fantastic name as well.

Oooh I Like :D you could have added a little more depth by defining the path to be much longer than it looks, but thats really about it :).
And this was a "noodle" piece for you so, whatever haha. I like this one quite a bit to be honest, my kind of scene, snow and jagged rocky bits.
One question, do you brush the particle effects with a single brush? Or did you make your own brush or what? Since I would love to start digital painting haha, but I uh... suck xD

thanks. The particles is just a simple scatter brush i made. From dotting some random dots around, turning it into a brush and then adding scatter and size jitters. if your just starting out, i would not recommend getting caught up in brushes though. they are really not important. :)

Ah okay, well I see then, as for painting then, would I just used a normal hard brush and make lots of noodles? XD. And would I use a 70%-90% opacity brush or 100%?
I would love to paint, but having no tablet AND mouse sucks haha, touchpad is terrible :p

ooo, yeah you really need a wacom tablet for painting. a mouse is not pressure sensitive. which is really important. its been done with a mouse, but it is way harder, and takes 20 times longer. but as far as opacity goes, it depends if you want to use a brush with opacity, and flow jitter turned on, or if you want to use one with out them turned on. I generally work without it turned on. and use 1-0 numbers to control opacity, 90% being the highest ill go. 100% is too unlike natural media. but yeah, if you are really interested, ryan church has some of the best painting tutorial dvd's through gnomen. noodling kinda comes last. its more big brushes knocking out your biggest shapes first, and working your way to smaller shapes.
