This painting was done for a commission. It will be used as a cover art for a dark, sad story. This was quite a change from my usual bright colored paintings. It was nice working on it. I especially enjoyed painting the bushes, the trees. It seems nowdays I am into tree painting.
I have tried out my new Manga Studio 5 brushes on this painting. I have created a soft and a hard brush that resembles the ones in Photoshop but with a bit of color mixing effect. I have also adjusted the brushes pressure sensitivity because I usually press the pen very softly and it was not enough to get decent strokes down. This can be set easily in each brushes. I enjoy using Manga Studio 5. I still like how it mixes the paint on the canvas while I paint on over it.
