Scenery background Project - Inside a forest


I’m currently searching for the best method to produce a scenery background. Same as previous garden artwork, this artwork are created using negative space method. The method allows me to draw exactly want I have in mind, which provides a very solid drawing for me to paint later. The drawing is made in detail which help to hasten the coloring process later. The background mountains, sky and the ground are made using soft painting method.
Software used are photoshop cs4 with wacom intuos 3 tablet. Below are the breakdown process.

First, I sketch down the forest that I have in mind.

Next, I draw using negative space method. This drawing took around 2 days to complete, but because of lot of work to do, this was not done in consecutive days. The left forest was done on 23th of October, while the right part was done on 29th. Notice the difference, the left one is darker than the left part. The huge gap of working time contribute to this inconsistency.

Finally, the coloring part. Thanks to the detailed drawing, the painting took a relatively short time, plus easier than direct painting method. The direct painting method is where we draw a simple sketch and then paint in detail. Painting creates a large stroke of colors, which is not helpful when creating details. Below is the painting I made before I learn this new method.
The finished artwork are the first picture on the post.
I still got a long way to learn.Just to let you know I'm writing this not only to showcase nor to share my artwork, but this is also serve as a guideline for me in the future. Hopefully I can improve a lot more in the future.

Thanks for your visit.
