Sketch 1 by seancruz Sketch 1 by seancruz
A sketch to try out a new painting technique using textures and various brushes.

Photoshop-around 2-3 hours

It's a large tree that has these really warm 'hotspots'. The tree produces its own heat.

Very intense brushwork! The fire looks very dramatic, like embers burning at the base of the tree. I also like the unusual colour scheme you used here - mainly olive greens and warm amber oranges. Anyway this is quite a unique image imho, well done :clap:

Well, it's a fire resistant tree :o

The tree glows where its core is most exposed. But perhaps the forest is actually cold and harsh and the tree survives with its own heat xD

The highlight on the left hand side of the right tree is a nice detail that many will miss.
