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.

Your choice of colors is just magical! Just love your brushes and the way you draw details and textures :3 That stump of a tree! Touchable!

Thanks, probably 40 percent of drawing time was spent on that tree stump.

Many Thanks for adding some of my Art in your favorites. It helped me finding your work which is awesome.
I like the way every part of the picture is simple, two or three colors clearly visibles, and the whole peace is very complex but also very clear.
Congrats !

Thanks so much. I always try to keep the image clear while putting in a lot of detail. I'm glad someone noticed that.

I noticed that because i began working in video games almost twenty five years ago. At this time most of 2D GFX were done like that, no shading but 2 or 3 colors to give illusion of, with the help of the very smooth and round pixels monitors. It was for technical restriction, and now you use that as a choice and i think it's brilliant.
Also if an image can work very well like that, it will work with adding shading, and more details. A lot of beginners focus on effects and shading, but to make a good image it must work well with few colors. Less is more. Your work reminds me that, thanks !

Yes, I had a problem with throwing in way too much random shapes and colors and the end result was always almost incomprehensible. So I decided to use less colors, make everything as clear as I can and work my way up. I'm slowly getting better. Also I don’t like useless effects, flashy bright things that do nothing, which I notice a lot of people use for some reason. That kind of thing seems to be especially prevalent in video game splash art and such nowadays.
