The Precipice Environment Tutorial by DylanPierpont The Precipice Environment Tutorial by DylanPierpont
Finally got this beast taken care of. Step-by-step for this piece: [link]

A few of the topics I cover in here are: thumbnails, 3D block-outs, perspective, lighting, color, mood, using photo textures, and atmosphere. Let me know if there's anything that needs clarification and if you happen to use any of these techniques in your own work shoot me a link! I'd love to see what you're working on :D Also, big thanks to :iconskiing: for his help on the editing. You da man!

Also, just a reminder I finally setup a Behance account this past week: [link] as well as a Tumblr which I gotta get updated tonight: [link]

Stop by and hit me up on either of those sites if you feel so inclined.

Thanks for checking in!

::EDIT::
Uploaded the full res .jpg and upped the contrast on the text. Should be a bit easier to read ;)

extremely good and detailed tutorial. love your style and most did like you point out to not just google stuff because of copyright as well as to not shy away to use little helpers like 3D programs.
anyway, wonderful mood, i can imagine myself arriving and can almost hear the the howling of the icy wind.

Really thick tutorial man, you hit some really good points. I never knew how you worked until now. Doing the value sketches/thumbs is so critical for me now haha. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Thank YOU so much for the kind words. I'm thrilled that this was of some use to you. Those value sketches are key in my opinion to getting a bunch of quick ideas out fast ;D

I had fun reading this! Some interesting techniques here, I have to try them out. I like how your knowledge of value, perspective and color shows in every one of the steps. The final result is fantastic, good work man :)

No problem! Glad you like it. Still have a few spelling errors to correct. Dunno how they slipped through -__-

well - this must have been exhausting, and i forgive your spelling errors - they weren't bad enough to make it unreadable, you know we have both seen worse ;) lol

It took me waaaaayyy longer than I thought it might. I know tut's take time to piece together but this one was rough. Lol. Keep on practicing. AP is a really fun thing to use once you get the hang of it.

This is an amazing tutorial! I just wish it was a little more legible. Low contrast between text and background and the line length make it really hard to read.
