Fantasy Rock Study

Fantasy Rock Study

Tonight I painted a mysterious entrance inside of a cave as the theme for my rock study. Creating the one segment saved so much time. I copied and pasted the one element over and over again until I had the rock pattern I needed. I used reference from the landscape workshop to get the edges correct along with that rock like appearance.

Rock Body

This was the starting point. I painted this first and then sketched out the rest of the composition on a new layer. As I needed the rocks, I just copied and pasted into place along with some transform to squish them in.
