I really liked the mountain on the 34h stage where the Hijal is still illuminated by the sun, because that is where it was both soft and monumental and expressive, but also PURE IN COLOR.

How do you find the patience when something starts going wrong?

depends on the drawing .. if its a personal project that i dont have a deadline .. i simply try to do things when they see fit. Some days i draw 8-12h straight, some others thing dont go quite as i plan and i draw for like 2h ..

I mean, as long as you dont have a deadline (aka work) i dont see much of a problem on that .. for example sargeras i took a small break because i reached a part that i'm not quite sure how i'll do it .. so instead of bashing my head against the drawing and eventually make something i dont like, i'm taking my time to figure out a way to do it.

This is so amazing, I just saw it on the Blizzard Fan art. I'm just in awe, it's stunning!
I have a few questions. What brushes do you use? Do you use the defaults, or do you have custom / downloaded ones? If you have custom / downloaded ones where can I find them?

i use several brushes, most of them i got no idea where, i get brushes pack here and there and delete most of them and keep a few selected ones ... then i customize them to my liking ... i need to clean up my brushes a bit and upload it somewhere soon.

How do you draw/color your images? Do you use a mouse or do you use a tablet? I'm just very curious as I am trying to find means of coloring in photoshop and I currently use a mouse so I don't do much.

tablet ... mouse is not much of an option to draw in photoshop (or any other software) ... sure, some people might do some great stuff using a mouse, but its really better to use a tablet ... many more options and control =)

Awesome "how" is awesome

Few small questions though !

-How did you make the grass (at the lower end of the image) ?
-Do you use some filters (gaussian blur...) sometimes ? Like the plants half hiding Grom's axe, was it painted "blury" (soft edged brushes) or post processed ?
-Did you "just do" the background trees (in the fog), or did you do them and then covered them with fog ?

Awesome art, you amaze me ><

- i have a "leaf" brush that i use to make the "body" of the foliage ... in the grass is a mix of 4 layers:

1 - with one brush to make the green part
2 - on top of it with said brush to make those random grass and then erase some areas(with the same leaf brush) ...
3 - another layer on top with those individual ones, done manually.
4 - one on top with shading and color (if needed) to give a better feel of volume.

- yes, those plants are simply a mix of blur and a smudge here or there ..

- Yes ... i just did =p .. Basically the same brush with a lighter or darker color to give volume ... and yes, then theres a fog layer on top. Theres a lot of layers here and there with those small effects in some areas (this image had ~50-60layers if im not mistaken). Theres no rule of thumb i simply add them as i feel necessary.
