Created from scratch with Photoshop and Intuos2 tablet.
Well, I'm pretty happy overall with this picture. This is the very first time I have done water and waves and I'm quite chuffed that the bottom part of the image looks like water
Again, Clouds feature quite highly in this submission, mainly to do with me being quite confident that I can achieve fairly convincing cloud shapes...
Joking aside, I'm loving creating these recent pictures, especially this one. I'm just letting the image grow and seeing what sort of vibe I'm getting early on and this is helping me loads in getting inspired and finishing the image.
I'm getting a little more confident now, so hopefully this is a little sharper and a little more structured than the previous submission. Its still a little dark, but I'm putting more and more into things so hopefully I'll do a daylight scene some day soon
Right now I'm just digging the hard contrasts that this sort of scene provides - the spray on the waves and the cloud edging was sooo much fun to do.
Original image is 2400x3600 and took around 2 evenings to complete.
