Cherry Blossom Skies. by Spikings Cherry Blossom Skies. by Spikings
Quick speedpainting I did, took an hour.
My first speedpainting!! :D
So proud. :meow:

EDIT: I've sorted out the shading and made the rock look a little more rocky. I've smoothed out the clouds, added highlights to the roots and brightened up the blossom a little bit. I tried to add some falling rock, but it came out rubbish every time I tried. :/

EDIT 2: Ok, now I've really beefed it up. Got rid of all those speedpainting strokes and rubbish cloud... doubled the amount of blossom, saturated it, used some cloud brushes, made sure the tree actually gets thinner as it ascends (O_O) detailed the branches enough so there are actually twigs and rejigged the shading. Now I can rest easy with this one. :)

This is awesome! And again, I love the soft pink coloring against the rest of the piece.
