Swamp by StefanHuerlemann Swamp by StefanHuerlemann
Wanted to create another enviroment, this time a big swamp. Took me way too long to paint this, about 10 hours all in all. Used a few textures but not much, about 95% is painted from scratch.

One of the most talented Deviants I know and watch, delivered yet another fantastic piece. It makes you feel so small, as if the trees are huge, it could be in a magical land, a part of an enchanted forest, or in a far away planet where every is equaly as big.

The part I like the most is defenatly the textures. I feel as if I can touch and feel the wood and mosh under my palm. What I don't like as much is the lighting. It is dramatic and powerful, but the trees seem too dark everywhere, maybe some of them could be lighter to make the trees closer to us pop up more.

Overall the piece is stunning with great details. I can't wait to see what your next piece will be.
What do you think?

May I have your permission, Mr. Hürlemann, to use this art for a Swamp card in my custom Magic: The Gathering expansion, Safiria?

Darf ich um Ihre Erlaubnis, Herr Hürlemann, um diese Technik für ein Swamp Karte in meinem benutzerdefinierten Magic: The Gathering Ausdehnung, Safiria, verwenden?

I would like to use the image in a Magic Set Editor custom project. It is really just a pet project, no profit, purely for fun. If you'd like to know more, please feel free to ask for the details. If you'd prefer if I didn't, just say. Thank you

Brilliant work, the atmospheric perspective is fantastic and the overall mood is really impactful. Love it! Just curious, how did you create the slightly foggy effect?

:iconstefanhuerlemann:
StefanHuerlemann Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
thank you! Well you simply use white or grey brushes with very low opacity. Or you could use white or grey gradients with very low opacity. Then you set the things you want to have appearing nearer to the viewer before the brushes/gradients.

mir springt sowas leider immer sofort ins auge. XD
liegt schätze ich mal an meinem beruf (mediengestalter)... da ich das bei werbung/gestaltung nicht mag wenn sachen doppelt genommen werden mit spiegelungen etc. ^^ sieht dann halt oft so "billig" aus (vorallem in lebensmittel-prospekten xD). kommt aber natürlich immer drauf an. manchmal fällts auch nicht auf.
aber ist auch nen einfacher effekt der ziemlich schnell geht, deswegen kann ich's auch verstehen wenn man den anwendet... tu ich ja auch. nur bemüh ich mich dann kleinigkeiten abzuändern, so dass es nicht mehr so stark auffällt. ^^
