Raging Seas by VonStreff Raging Seas by VonStreff
Sea serpents were often told of in the old tales, but the fishermen found out that sometimes there is truth in the stories. Able to whip up storms at will, these beasts are the greatest danger to sailors.

This took about six hours, I am quite happy with the result. I used the standard chalk brush and standard soft brush.

woah, if you don't mind me asking, how'd you get the rain to look like that?

I painted a few straightish lines in white/ light grey. I duplicated, rotated, duplicated again, manipulated, and made them cover the painting. Then I placed the layer on 50% (for the bg rain). I duplicated the layer, returning it to 100%, then did a full 180 rotation. This was the foreground rain. Bother layers were on overlay.

The rain on the serpent was painted seperately, just splashing water-like paint everywhere haha!

Does this help?
