Japan Landscape WIP

Posted Jul 21, 2019, 3:45:17 AM

Since I'm not exactly a master of painting landscapes, I had decided to find a photo of my chosen travelling spot which is Mount Fuji, Japan and alter the photo quite a bit with a presentation/art program on my computer :)

    Hi Miriam-chan. I would challenge you to give this challenge another try without relying on the program to turn the photo into a black and white image.

    The intent of the challenge is to help you to observe and produce values as this is an important fundamental for art.

    By using a program to alter an existing photo, we're not really getting the benefit of learning to see or recreate the values.

    It's ok if freehand painting is not your thing. So maybe try doing it with hand drawn vector shapes that you create yourself on a blank image just as you've done for your other works.

    I will make it worth your while and give you another 100XP if you try it again.
