icy scene [EDIT] by Makkon icy scene [EDIT] by Makkon
Starting to make my own custom brushes. Super handy.
Was going to be for a friend, but I think I can do better for him. Plus it didn't feel right to plug ponies into this one.

[EDIT]
Fixed it up for comicon SLC!

Photoshop CS5, and some custom rock brushes I have available for download in my journals.

The brushes are 404'd. Would it be possible for you to resolve that?

this looks like it could be something from Romantically Apocalyptic. and those are all photo manipulation so kudos, this is amazing.

I particularly love the way you manipulated the light in the ice in this one.

Is it a texture brush? Have you enabled texture option or just took a part of the texture and made "Define Brush" ?

Both. Some brushes are for texture underpainting, others are brushes that I've turned into 'stamps' so to speak. I have the spacing pretty high, and for most I have directional controls on them too. Just depends on the brush.

You can download the brush set from my journal and take a look at the settings if you want.

Not content with being one of if not the best musician in bronydom, Makkon figures he'd better dominate the art section too.

Dammit, pretty soon you'll be writing fanfics that make me cry and delete my GDocs account! D:

I feel almost like I can see a picture in the ice. I.. can't... quite... make... it... out... though... Yet I can't stop trying...

Gah, this is going to be like "The Yellow Wallpaper". I doubt anyone knows what I mean by that.

This is amazingly well done. Keep up the great work.

Very nicely done. I love that it has a kind of photo-realistic quality to it despite being a speed painting.
How long did this end up taking you by chance?
