Practicing Magic by jerry8448 Practicing Magic by jerry8448
~o~ Practicing Magic ~o~

This is definitely one of my most time consuming pics (at least 10 hours, probably a lot more - I lost track) , but I think it was worth it. :) The original file is 2048x1536.
Tried out some new techniques using homemade brushes for the leaves and meadow, and I really spent eons on the girl.

Hope you like it.
Full view please.

~ Jeremiah

This is pure awesomeness. I especially love the background, how you put in the little windmill. Also, the title is very original for something with the word "magic" in it. This is truly something stupendous =)

I wish we could practice magic, too, though I guess, looking at this pic, in a way we can. Still, it would be great to be able to do something like that. :D

Are you going to offer them?:iconpanicatthediscoplz:

It looks like you spent a long time on the girl.
The detail on the dress shows this. :nod:

The brushes were simple, really. I didn't save the one for the leaves, though I could make it again, if you need it. I uploaded the other one (for the meadow) to rapidshare LINK

Thank you for the link. I save all kinds of stuff just in case I get the nerve to start painting.
I dont want to waste your time with the making of the brushes as I would not use them right away.
Still in the learning phase of wacome and matte painting and boy am I bad at it.
I am so used to my hand and paper...getting the eye hand thingy is a bugger.
But if you make, me will download....you rock at art.

I got my first tablet last November. It takes a while to get used to it, but once you really get into it, it can be quite addictive. ;)
