RIFT contest: WATER by JoelAmatGuell RIFT contest: WATER by JoelAmatGuell
well, this is my first entry for the RIFT contest, i'll probably submit another one in the future.

(*EDIT: here are my other entries:
death: [link]
earth: [link] )

air: [link]

this one was a bit challenging to paint cause it have all the elements i hate to paint.

i hate painting backgrounds, rocks, water, and architectonical stuff, so i decided i'd paint all those things and make a cool end Boss. i'm really happy of the wait it turned out, and i really hope you like it...

i'll cross my fingers to make it to the finals cause i need a new tablet....

wish me luck!

(it's all painted with photoshop, no textures used, only a couple of custom brushes)

enjoy!

haha i don't think i'm the best person to ask tips on painting water. i just found a cool brush on my photoshop brush collection and thought it would work... and it did, i actually hate to paint water... i'm sorry i can't help you... :P

here's a tutorial i did,[link] maybe you'll find something useful in there, also, in the description there are a couple links to download cool brushes :)
