I like the trees. The bridge doesn't really look anchored to the ground though.

You're right. It is floating a bit. :(

I like those leaves. I think you succeeded in doing what you set out to do in the challenge. Did you find it a very useful task?
I almost always work on one layer now since trying it when I started using Painter. I found it freed me up to work on things more efficiently (gone are the 1000 layers of slightly different adjusments "just in case" :D). Of course there are always uses for layers, but whenever I'm done I collapse it all back down again. I don't seem to have suffered much doing it that way and the file sizes are much smaller. Different situation if dealing with work for a client I suppose. "How about we have the text lilac, instead of purple....." :roll:

As my mucus has subsided I am now willing and able to do the next one ;)

:D Yes, it was good after I did it. I just didn't want to start it I suppose.

I think I will still keep distinct layers for back, mid, and foreground (especially for character/creature work), but I think it will be good to try to keep it to that. I like how the different elements can be more easily bled into each other.

I think I'll go ahead and post the next one now.
