Bubbling Brook by Sidonie Bubbling Brook by Sidonie
Tess relaxes to the sound of a bubbling brook, escaping the hot summer sun.

Someone tell me what you think of the bark - I have been trying to find a good style that doesn't take too long!

This is what I hope to be able to render someday. :)
Those blades of grass must have been a bitch though! Did you use that grasslike brush, or did you take some other brush and individually paint them?

Aww, thank you!  For the mossy/grass I first painted in the base colours, then use a speckled brush with lighter colours to create texture, then used a brush that was suppose to be for hair over top of that to create some of the grass shape, then lastly I hand painted in the details so it didn't look so uniform and fake ^^  I hope that's helpful!

:icondragonkekeplz: My boyfriend and I both think this is an absolutely beautiful piece! We were talking about it just about a week or so ago when we were sharing some of our favorite anthro pieces from dA. Would you mind if I placed it up on ALL-ART-4-EVER's home page for a few days perhaps? Just featuring it there for our page viewers to possibly see and to spice up the decor a bit? Again, it really is a breathtaking piece. A very fine job on it, friend. And, of course, the rest of your work is just as stunning and enjoyable to see.

The bark looks almost fluffy. But it's kinda cool. Soft bark.

Looks good! I'd say bark really depends upon the tree, so I guess it'd be best to pick a selection of trees to use as references. Some trees, like beeches, have very smooth bark and so shouldn't take one, while others like oaks have plenty of ridges and would therefore takes longer.

:)  Thank you!  Yes, my father is actually a Forester, so I have had many sessions in the woods being taught which tree is which.  I also definitely prefer the look of conifer bark, that's usually what I end up trying to paint.  But I don't like to get too specific when painting, as there is even a huge difference in the bark of a yellow cedar compared to a red cedar.  I suppose this one would be closest to a Spruce tree haha

That's cool! Bark is a pain, thought I personally would sacrifice difficulty for what fits the scene. I do it with my climbing shoes - that absolutely kill my feet, but they let me climb better. XD

Sidonie Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, yeah.  It definitely depends on the picture.  You specified which trees in your commission, so I will do my best to make them specific.  Whereas most people just say 'in the forest', so I go for what comes out naturally.

Tree bark looks good! It and the moss complement each other with your style.

Oh good!  Thank you, I am trying to make my pictures a bit more consistent, sometimes I feel certain elements don't particularly flow with the rest of the piece/style.
