How to create pure digital art

 
Flipping the image is a very good thing because it's really gets you to watch every compositing detail.

The law is simple here: the image should look in both ways perfect (if is flipping horizontally). I flip the image all the time while I'm working.

Oh I found a detail here - and now I really know the story behind this picture. It will something like lava mountain) I really refined the image in the corner (this rock basically) to define the elements and the style of the picture. I think I'll consider that as a something like standard element and style of my picture.

...Dropping some whites - really careful. It has to be a balance between lights and darks (mass and space) in this case.

It always good to drop a human figure for scale, when you are painting environments:

A human with the dog: actually it's too big for my proportions. You can just store this in mind and do it in several steps or so.

So I
  
really like how this part looks. Let's name it the 1st part. I will be flipping the image - so this is for you to understand this faster.

So for the 1st part - I really like it - the details and value, so the 2nd part of the Image isn't really done - so let's do it.

Now it is very important do use lines (non masses) to define shape edges - some people sometimes forget to do this.

Can't wait for part 2. Although I must say B&W gives it a certain aura that may be disrupted by color. Anyway, eagerly waiting to see what you make of it. By the way, if you want to print out your art as postcards, there's a great site for that - http://www.psprint.com/postcards. Try it.
