View of A Village (Part 2)

The two pictures above have been consuming my life since last night.

Nevertheless, I love them :).

The painted version is not finished yet, but I think I will stop here for today.

Remember “View of A Village”, several blog entry ago? This is the continuation of that same project.

When I rendered out the model from Maya, I originally planned to do only color study in Photoshop, but I ended up enjoying myself too much painting it :D.

The floating leaves are from one of default brushes in Photoshop. I have several people telling me not to use Photoshop’s special effect brushes but I guess this one works.
