With the details and textures, you definitely evoked the sense of an ancient old tree.

This is awesome!
It's a little "too much green" for my taste though... a little more color variation would be nice 
BUT I love the texture to it :heart:
Great work!

What resolution do you paint at? Do you go huge and shrink it down?

Narandel Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I paint at around 4000 pixels wide for most of my paintings. Once it's done, i will shrink it down by maybe 40 to 50%

Thanks, that's good to know. I have been doing 2500, still new to digital painting. Think I better up my pixels.

Thank you very much. I definitely advice you to start out by practicing the basic fundamentals of drawing. Such as perspective, lighting and color theory. Also do anatomy studies if you're interested in character/creature design. Other than that, i would say just practice and draw alot everyday.

Wow this looks like Mt Igdulum's (Mt Twilight's) Cave cause the roots of the trees are the only thing keeping the ceiling steady!

nice work. Are you using a preset brush or a custom made one?

Narandel Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you very much, i'm actually using the default photoshop chalk brush for the most of it, but my custom brushes are a set which i got from Levente Peterffy. You can check out his website on the link below, i'm pretty sure he uploaded his brush set there.
