Verkenner by AlexanderCasteels Verkenner by AlexanderCasteels
Video Walkthrough: [link]

It's my first time recording myself working so I was nervous as hell! Hehe!

It's all improvised so there are some mistakes and things I change as I go along.

In the end I also made some final adjustments which aren't in this video anymore since I already started uploading it. Thank God I made those changes though...

Anyway, Hope you enjoy.

stock from: stormsorceress (tree, balcony, water, rock)
Amor-Fati-stock (Cave Face)
Anarasha (Background texture)
Jesuisautre (Stone texture)

Everything else painted.

Saw the walk-through on your blog - and I must say I'm thoroughly impressed! This is some astonishing work man. Only wish I would get anywhere close to this some day.

Thanks for sharing :)

ohm... okay... beware... I'm not that good in writing something in english...
First I only liked this picture somehow...and I asked my self it is a germean word "Verkenner" but in vocabulary there is no word like this and I'm from Germany :omfg:
But than I watched the walkthtough because everbody here seems to watch it before leaving a comment (yes I'm such a follower...) and had diffent things in my mind... starting with "omg", "insane" and "woha fast"... changing into something like "I want to do something like this" and in the end it was only a small "I never can do something likt this"...
To cut a long story short... I'm completely impressed...

I was amazed by this piece before I watched the walk through, and now I'm just plain blown away. To see such a wonderful piece of art being created from the ground up in that walk through was so... wow. Haha I can't really think of the best words to describe that.

Great work!

That's one awesome video! And one awesome illustration even though you are making it "as you go" without any sketches or plan.

The changes you did really improved it too. The first tree could still be improved though since it seems to be as affected by atmospheric perspective than the other 2, and those are further back. Bring up its contrast and you'll see what I mean.

The texture you added at the end of your vid was definitely too much and thank god you took it off!! (or at least reduced it conciderably?)

I love how much detail your work has. The walkthrough is impressive. I note how the final piece differs though. Great work nonetheless.

wow i watched the whole vid and still cant believe how fucking amazing you are. thanks for posting it too. it's giving me more ways to try and learn my photomanipulation software. to be honest i just suck at it overall, but that just means more room for improvement, right? haha. by the way, what program do you use for your mainpulations?

The end result itself was of course incredible (as it always is), but then I watched the video and my jaw dropped. I had no idea so much work went into a photomanip. DAAAAAAYUM you've got talent!!! Let the nay-sayers try to say -this- isn't your own work. Pfft

On a side note, that first song on the video - Who does that?? I really liked it.
