I use a tablet pen, a wacom intuos 4 medium. I could not live without it. It may as well be grafted to my hand. =P
I agree, paint-tool sai is brilliant with Tablets, but be forewarned, if you have a Bamboo like me and use it, it will often go unresponsive (The pen, not the program.) for as long as you have that window open, to fix it simply remove preferences.
Oh, and brilliant job Larb!
I like how the cave's walls and the rocks are looking now. The water is an odd color though, especially the stream outside the cave - I'd expect a darker and more bluish shade to it.
Like the new update. It's starting to look really awesome. Nice colours ^^ I take it the water isn't done yet?
How did you do the water? It looks terrific!
I changed the original colour to a blue-green, then I used a darker shade on the water in the cave. Then I got lazy and did some cut and paste/mirroring of the cliff walls on a separate layer, lowered the layer opacity then used the ripple filter on it. Then deleted bits of it with a soft eraser.
Then I went a bit crazy with low opacity soft white brush. Then I added a few other colours. I probably spent longer than I should but I mostly like it.
