Tiny Tips: Rock it by Ranarh Tiny Tips: Rock it by Ranarh
I can't stress it enough: No black! ;) Rocks don't do well with black shadows. Much too dark. Most textured brushes will do fine, and you can just take a picture of the pavement in front of your house to get a decent texture. You can also use the steps shown as guide to how much detail you need in the distance.

"Ranarh's tiny tips" is a collection of iddy-biddy tutorials, each containing small bites of advice anyone can chew, aimed at beginner's level artists. They are not software-dependent. If there's a problem you have, something you feel someone should finally explain, or are just curious what I have to say on a particular artistic issue, feel free to tell me.


You'll find the whole Tiny Tips Collection, plus some full-grown walkthroughs in my tutorial section. Check out my blog and website for exclusive tutorials, walkthroughs, and tips.

Aerial or linear? - Uff, I don't know if I'm fit for it . . . :faint:
Can I talk you into swamps instead :hmm: - whoops, I'm trailing off - okay, perspective it is! :nod:

Haha, um... how about perspective in swamps? Lol, jk. Mostly I have troubles with perspective with the human figure. Foreshortened arms and stuff like that.
