EDIT: A DD? I...this came out of left field. Completely. I am soooo happy and grateful, a massive thank you to CelticStrm-Stock !!! Let me hug you!  And to all of you who have been faving or commenting, it means so much to me. Thank you! :love:

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Hi all! I've had a few inquiries about my mountains, and recently I helped a friend by walking through my process.  I saved the screenies I took and converted it all into a tutorial for you all! :la: I hope it helps!

The mountain in question that I'm painting, was originally painted in my deviation: Get off My Lawn! by ArtisanDwarf <-- you can head on over there to see the whole mountain range finished. :) 

The stock I used as reference there and here is this one: burtn.deviantart.com/art/Gegen… Beautiful, no?

That totally makes my day! Having a 'style' is always something I've struggled with, so something being recognizable makes me so happy! :dummy:

I think they meant the reference pic, it looks really blurry

Oh I see. Well since it didn't need to be super detailed because the mountain I was painting would be fairly small in the grand scheme of things, I didn't worry about it. ^^ I don't generally worry about things like that when painting anyways if it's a reference I really want to use, since you can always paint more details in, and use a second ref for them if needed.
