Wow. I really like this piece. The contrast between the foreground and background are striking, and the clouds swirling the peaks of the mountaintops is the cherry on top <3

Woah, great environmental! I love this :O

Did you use anything as reference? And is that a crystal brush? It looks really good:)
I like how you didn't use any textures at all, shows quite a lot of effort and skill!
Nice colours and contrasting lighting from the frozen peaks to the dark woods!

Any tips for someone new to using photoshop for anything brush related?
I usually use Sai for illustration and ps for design work, but I'm trying to transition over to ps completely.

Thanks so much in advance, have a great day ad keep up the awesome work!

Thank you for your nice comment. I always try to use standard ps brushes, for this one I used a crystal brush in the beginning, just to try it out. PS is great for illustrations and relatively easy to learn - composition and color theory, these are hard :) In a few weeks I will start a free ' improve your skills ' tutorial course, so watch out for my new journal entries if you're interested. 

Have a nice day :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to reply!

Yeah composition and color theory I have no experience of, I used to work with pencil when I did do traditional...so very monochromatic xD
Awesome, I'll add you to my watch for those tutorials when they come out :)
Can't wait to check it out!

Have a fun time!

I don't usually get too drawn to scenery but this is really great! I can't blame you for sticking to mountains if they're all so good. :) The contrast is really amazing.

Wow, this has a really great feel to it. I love drawing mountains too, but no way as good at it as you are! 

Has a wonderful traditional feel to it, it reminds me of old storybook illustrations.
