Summer Paradise by priteeboy Summer Paradise by priteeboy
Looks like something sweet, or fruity :lick: Either way I wanted this to to be one inviting sunset scene and I quite loved the colour combination for this year's one. This is the seventh annual artwork I've made of this kind, all part of my yearly birthday submissions and I managed to still be on time again. Talk about punctuality (or not having a life :paranoid:) It was hard to think of a title, so I took one from a song I currently like which fits the mood perfectly 8-)

Created with Vue and Photoshop as I often do. I originally had a very purple colour scheme in mind for this with only trace amounts of blue and pink involved. It looked pretty cool but then after some radical changes and experimentation with the colours I ended up with this which was very different yet more fitting to the bright, warm sunset mood I wanted. I also wanted somewhat a minimalistic approach which I tend to prefer for island type scenery relax:

Hey! I really enjoy your sky and I see you said you made it in photoshop.

Just curious, did you paint it digitally or is it a photo-manipulation? (A tutorial would also be extremely appreciated! :D)

Great work, hope to see more.

This one was just painted digitally, though I have done manipulated skies before when I wanted something more real-looking :D

I guess in Florida you can get to see both, thanks to the shape of the place :D

Hope you enjoy the print too :eager:
