    Default Max's Workshop

    Hey everyone,

    So welcome to Max's Workshop! Since I can't open a WIP thread for each map I'm working on, I've decided to open this thread to throw in some samples of my current works, test styles, doodles and stuff. I'll try to regularly keep it updated, so take a seat and enjoy your stay ( you should find some chips and cookies right here)

    Let's start it today with some stuff I'm currently drawing for some running commissions:

    I was drawing a few mountains to practice and I figured I would share a bit of the process here:

    The steps:
    1. Moutains main outlines on some texture
    2. Adding Ridges
    3. Adding detail ridges
    4. Painting light shadows
    5. Going deeper in shadows
    6. Painting highlights
    7. More highlights
    8. A very slight touch of grey/brown and green colors.
