Entry Title:


Project Description:

no specific instructions needed unless you want to zoom in some places for better detail. I have entered a mountains painting created on photoshop. Mainly it was an end project for combining all we know about Photoshop in PMAC and putting it into one artwork. We each had our individual take on a picture and I loved how mine looked in the beginning however it started to look dull overtime so I added more lines and detail to make the foreground pop out more so I'm really proud that I added some more shadows, lights, and grass details to the foreground so it doesn't get blended in with the middle ground. For the main painting I did it on photoshop which was hard without a pen and only using a mouse and touchpad. The main highlights, shadows and external details I did over procreate as I have more control and can be more precise on my details through the painting. I'm really proud on how the picture turned out and I hope the judges may also like the painting I created.
