Astounding, really. Love the sense of calm mixed with the rushing river, and the overall palette of colors, kinda muted and not sunny like most landscape pictures are.. This is now my wallpaper, hope you don't mind, heh.
Yup, I love it! Quite a gorgeous scape here with a lot of depth and it seems like both a magical place and one of future burdens! Really nice detailing and textures...I wish I could get this depth you do! Superb art!
Yeh brushes are tricky, I used to use so many brushes before, so many I rarly used the same for each painting more than once or twice, it got abit confusing and each painting I did looked so different in style, so recently I decided to try get just a few brushes I want to use, and see how it works out.
So I tried to pick one brush I like and try to stick with it, it helps to keep each environment to look like they were painting in the same.
But I also trying to find a few more brushes, like a less textured brush for clouds and stuff.
But in the end there is no truly right or wrong way to do it, its what u prefer and it can take alot of time and practice to find it out.
As for what a good brush would be, its hard to answer, but maybe something with abit of texture (presonal preference), and ofcourse not being too slow when working in bigger files in photoshop.
But ofcourse some people prefer to just use the normal round brush in photoshop.
Its best to go with what u like and make changes when u feel like its needed.
I think this is some brush sharing thread maybe u find something there
