I looked at this absentmindedly at first and thought the second one was a photo. :D

I forgot to tell some pieces of the rock or whatever it is that touches the water in the front of the picture arent reflected... and from this angle even the guy/girl should be visible in your mirror ;)

ooooh,
very nice I absolutely love the lines (I know they are not yours) and the coloring is very good too, looks profesional :)
I am not sure if water would be as reflecting as it is on the pic though...
so i am not a fan of the water (even though everybody else likes it appearantly...)

Wow - I've seen this in approach a few comic pieces, but they are often saved for panoramas and dramatic landscapes such as this one. Could I ask what brushes you use to get the spattered texture around the foliage and rock formation? Also, what photoshop palette do you use to create the muted colors?

Honestly, I wish there were schools to teach digital coloring, especially cuts style. I can manage it, but the intense selections and inexperience in drawing slow me down.

Well the brushes I used are ones that I created. As far as palette I just choose everything by eye.

Thanks for the response! The brushes you created allow for realistic looking foliage and textures. I'll have to try creating some. And you don't use a palette? Experience and a good eye for color really does allow for that. Could you suggest a tip for someone who is using cuts coloring and wants to speed up the rendering? I find myself constantly un-doing a color shape because it doesn't look right in context with overall picture. Perhaps I need to consider all light attributes and object shape before splashing down a tone. Sorry for asking so many questions. I'm trying to improve and didn't know there were so many professional artists that post here.

Fascinating!
Amazing!
Gorgeous!

. . .are three of the many words i can use to describe this image.

For one, the texture is fantastico. Also, the tones of greens and blues and browns you use are wonderful. I love how the little dude's red hat really makes him stand out.

And the reflections on the water look nice, even if they're just the image flipped and toned down. It brings realism to the image.

The foliage detail is awesome. Plus, you got me Googling for Drax's back story. (I only read a few comics with Drax, all of which had him in his addle-brained state.)

That looks so cool. Interesting how a blotchiness is used, but not everywhere.

I can see a lot of work was put into this. It's very in-depth. I particularly like the reflections in the water.
