Digital Fieldwork Tutorial by FablePaint Digital Fieldwork Tutorial by FablePaint
Alternate Title: ESDA's Techniques for Working in the Digital Field

So many people have begged me to make a backgrounds tutorial that I finally gritted my teeth and made one. This doesn't involve even half of what I do to make a digital landscape, but it should teach you how to better use the tools you have and inspire you to mess around and play with Photoshop some more. I hope you'll create your own techniques for making backgrounds, mine's are not the best nor are they the only ones.
And if it sucks when you make it the first time, try a second time. Practice makes perfect.

Wish this would open on my phone. Oh well. I was just wondering if you take background commissions. I am working on an animated film and I am looking for a bg artist. Thanks for your time.

Let me tell you how long I have been looking for a decent tutorial on how to make a good looking field of grass, long, short, or whatever.

Literally two years.

I don't know how I never found this before to be honest, I guess I just wasn't looking hard enough but I just want to thank you for this. I might even have to try out the tree sometime too when I get the chance!

Your tutorial was used here: [link]

In short, thank you. (:
