Mountainrise by Nambroth Mountainrise by Nambroth
You may have seen this fellow around, but if not, this is Zalkharas (or just Zal!), a very cool character belonging to :iconmanojalpa:

I enjoy painting atmospheres very much.

Painted in Corel Painter, using the oil pastel, real bristle, and pastel tools.

I enjoying seeing your atmospheric paintings! Wish I could paint clouds that well. I still haven't quite figured them out. Also, love the way the light is striking the peak of the mountain. Saw something like that at sunset in Yellowstone some years ago, and you captured the look of it perfectly.

Which version of Painter do you use?

Thank you so much! I run Painter 10. It seems to behave itself the most of any version I've had.

Ah, thanks! I've been thinking of getting Painter at some point in the future, but I have no desire to pay full price for the newest version (13, I think?). I've heard good things about Painter X and it seems to be getting more affordable every year. Good to hear that it's a stable, solid version too!

I'm not saying it's super stable-- I'm not convinced that any version of painter is! It just seems to crash the least of any version I've used. XD

Well, "more stable" is better than "crashes all the time", so I'm good with that!

Your STUNNING artwork never ceases to floor me @_@. The realism and detail in the piece causes you to do a double-take to make sure it's not a photo. Incredible.

The details in this so nice looking it almost could be mistaken fr a real scene. I like these kind of pics where the snow capped mountains glisten to the orange of the sunset an the cloud burn with the same orange fire as the sun gives it. I think this solitary creature is just as much a part of this pic, although I have not seen a lion headed with horns and gryphon like wings, I like it myself, well done. :) :thumbsup:
