Driving To Work Through The Chase Inspires A Piece

Deer Painting

I used to work on the edge of Cannock Chase and driving through there is really scenic and something I take for granted living so close to it. One morning the light skimming through the trees inspired me to do a little bit of painting when I got home and this is the result.

Created in Photoshop using a graphics tablet to paint out most of the areas I used reference images of deers to get the outlines just right by silhouetting over the photo in Illustrator then importing the outline into Photoshop as a smart object. The grass and trees use a mix of standard and custom brushes designed to make painting complex, realistic trees quick and simple and all around this probably took 4 hours but I like how it came out.
