Witchwood - painting tutorial by Nrekkvan Witchwood - painting tutorial by Nrekkvan
This is a guide to creating a fantasy landscape using open source (free to download & use) tools:

G.I.M.P. [link]

and

MyPaint [link]


This guide is meant for advanced users and will not tell you how to create every single thing you see in the picture.

final picture: [link]

If you are about to create your first digital picture, this guide probably wont be for you

If your desktop resolution is 1680x1050 or higher I recommend downloading the tutorial and viewing it in your image editor/viewer for a higher res version.

It's a good thing to look back on to remind me that the act of painting doesn't have to be perfect, it's the imperfections that bring out your creativity and style. I constantly forget that. ;P

So, thanks. :D
