Stranger in Town by arisuonpaa Stranger in Town by arisuonpaa
This one is a result of my latest experiments for achieving painterly style with digital tools. It’s mostly painted in Art Rage, with some adjustments and final touches in Photoshop and Painter. Composition and lighting were planned using 3D models in Blender, and a 3D render was the main reference. Other references are listed below (both by ~Eirian-stock):

Personally I’m quite happy with the visual effect. By using digital oil paints I can follow much of the same rules that apply for real paints. This time I tried to pay attention to edge variety, and made sure there is a range of edges from hard, soft, and all the way to lost edges.

This feels like the atmosphere of the Lord Of The Rings in that town! Simple nature, but beautiful all the same, you should do more animals in your paintings!

wow! you did really well in my opinion!
When I looked at it, I thought "wait, wasn't this digital painting? or... a photographed painting? or... a combination?"

Totally loving the texture :D

Whoa I thought it was traditional media (oils) until I read the description! Nice job on the painterly style, the brushstrokes does work well with the atmosphere.

It's very interesting, I love how much the little details add to the picture. You did a good job, and the more details, the better. People don't realize it, but if you compared a picture with no details to this, you'd miss what you put into this, and it wouldn't be as good.

I like it, there's a soft impressionist feel to the work. The brushstrokes in the clouds look so real I'd swear this was a physical painting if I didn't know better.

Wow, you really succeeded with the painty feel, I was sure this was traditional when I clicked the thumbnail o: I remembered when I tried out art rage and quickly fell in love with the oil paint as well, just for that effect. 

It looks really great so I don't have much other feedback than maybe the palette. I feel you could have been a bit bolder with the colours, for an example the sky looks a tad flat going in a sort of static blue hue. That's the only thing I could think of though, apart from that it looks perfect to me :meow: 

Hope that was helpful, I'm just going to watch you now as I was sure I already did :noes: Keep up the amazing work! :la:
