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.
