Practice in combining photos and painting. Here is a link to the photo I used as the starting point, I don't own rights for it but I couldn't find out who does. Anyway, enjoy: www.myhimalayas.com/kangchenju…
Thanks! Can't really say any specific set, I think there is some from Mathias Verhasselt, Dan LuVisi, some custom brushes I've made, some texture ones I've found from the internet Too much really, can't remember all the sources.
Google those up, there are a lot of brush packs online nowadays!
Awesome stuff again mate! Love the colors and the atmosphere. Maybe a bit more dynamic standing poses/ silhouettes for the foreground characters and a tower or two in the city would make this read even better.
