Living In A Swamp by AugustinasRaginskis Living In A Swamp by AugustinasRaginskis

I’m actually quite proud of this piece. At the very least while working on this, I saw my painting skill significantly improve. Also, it has been a long time since I drew any kind of landscape, especially not using a reference so that was fun.
I made this extra detailed so view it at full size for optimal visual experience.

This is available as prints, phone cases and such at…

what  program did you use to make this it makes my stomach hurt its so good the tinsee details

I use a program called Corel Painter. What it does is imitate all the art supplies you could use in reality and more and also it has most of editing functions Photoshop has. The only problems with it is that you can't use very many layers( say more that 15 or 20) or the program might crash, and if you want to use some of the fancier brushes like watercolor tool, which mixes the colors as actual watercolor would, you need an awesome computer. But I don't use any of those so it works out perfectly for me. I used to draw in Photoshop, but compared to this, Photoshop is just frustrating. To make the fine details I simply zoomed in a lot and worked on every little thing for hours. I worked in pretty high resolution, if you print this thing at full resolution, it would be the size of a table. In this painting and most others, I used pastel and spray-paint brushes. They are my favorite. Pastel brushes mix colors really nicely, but you can still do fine detail with the same brush.

Cool style. :)
... wait. Does he just eat his backpack's relatives?

It's less of a backpack and more of a way to carry home the prey. So to answer your question, yes.
