My digital painting #2

Visiting my friend's house in Santa Cruz and her house is right in the middle of a beautiful forest! Next day, after visited my friend, I got Oga Kazuo's artbook which is the collection of Kazuo's beautiful forest paintings. Those two inspired me!!! I think this piece is better than my last digital piece in term of mood and color.

Plein Air

It suppose to be rained in San Jose today.  I went to the Alum Rock park for plein air but I'm lucky! it wasn't rain on the mountain!  It took me almost 4 hours...I was trying to finish this painting but it was so cold up there and my hand was freezing, so I decided to stop.  The painting isn't really finished, but I like it anyway.  Done in acrylic in my sketchbook.

Story is out there!!!

Finally!!! considering my "first" finished digital painting!  The shadow pattern on my T-rex should be better, but I don't have enough reference for the light. 
I've been practiced digital painting for awhile but most of my painting were just very loose and never finished.  This painting took me a while (roughly 18-20 hours).  I've learnt tons from this painting.  There're still more room for improvement.  This one was drawn and painted from scratch in photoshop.  Please feel free to give me comments or critics.
