WIP:Kreola Alex Griffiths

So I'm not much of a painter, never have been. But I liked the idea of submitting something and having a go so I thought I might try and submit a work that is photoshop and compositing based and see how it turns out :P Different strokes for different folk I believe

SO, I went looking for a stock image that I think matches the description and, using it as my basic template along with the kreola image off I go :P

a stock image

It is perfectly fine to participate without layering some paint onto the canvas

Make sure when you search for your reference photos you also keep the lighting in mind

From a compositing point of view
the sun direction will have to match just like the perspective


And once you get started on the styleframe rather match your reference photos into the plate than attempting it the other way around


Good luck

All of the pineapples!

So I started having a look at filling in the rest of the wall which I'm happy with and putting some houses up across the river. I'm not too happy with the the little houses but for now it'll stand as a place holder because I'm not too fussed. On ward to the next stage!

Getting into the swing of it now. Bulking up some of the walls to get the image going, still alot of correct but I think for now I'll just focus on putting the elements into the scene I also added in some stone houses across the way but I'm not sure if they're working. I'll review once I've filled more in. Also unsure about if the aspect is still working. Might have to shift the river at a later point.

Big things come with small bridges



I like the placements of the bridges (obviously will tie them into the scene better) but I'm like the general structures. Still deciding whether or not I'll move the stream or just throw up a wall. Much more to do. SO MUCH MOAR
