I started playing Trine 2 the other day and was really blown away with their environments and lighting. After about thirty minutes of playing I had to paint this. The main point I was focusing on throughout the painting was the transition from warm the cool.

A quick Study of a picture I took overlooking my house last time I visited Hawaii. Although there is no interesting subject matter to focus on in the picture I tried to create a general focal point using lighting and blurring techniques.

A study, I am really focusing on my rendering style and process. On this piece I started with really soft forms for my medium and dark values, then detailed with a nice sharp square brush for the lights.

This image came along way from where it started. Initially I laid down 2 photos of trees and rocks, overlayed them, then started to pull out shapes from it. The image really did not start to take shape until about half way through.

This is the first time working like this and I really like the process so far. It really helps get started, Although I feel like i did waste a bit of time trying to figure out the image for the first half.

Just some sketching, I just started laying down colors and shapes and this is what happened.

The last image for my set of 3 characters. I think I have learned the most from this last one, and have really begun to grasp the harder brush rendering style.
