Bob Ross is a beautiful man. This was done painting along to episode 1 of Bob Ross's "Beauty is Everywhere" and man is it! It was a really fun exercise to do and I might just do it more. I'm at a loss for words honestly, haha.

DAMN. I love the perspective of depth in the wave.

It took a little while to load this one, so at first I was thinking, "Oh, that's pretty", and then, "Wait, wait, I know's BOB ROSS'S SEASCAPE! :D"

It's very beautiful! It's recognizable as his design if you've ever seen it, but it's also very much your own. I like how there's two birds instead of one, for instance. And I think I like the way your rocks look better than the way his did; something about the way the brown blended with the black in the original looked odd to me, but these look really, really nice. And yes, the wave is fantastic. I like all the little do-ers in it, lol.

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: Yeeeeees a Bob Ross fan! :D

Thank you! What I love most about this is finding new techniques and learning new things for how to do landscapes c:

@Pokemontrainergigi: Yes! :D

And yeah, it's really awesome how, even though he's painting traditionally, a lot of his techniques are helpful in drawing and computer painting. :)

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: Mhmm! The only part that I've really found different is the color mixing. Besides digital and traditional color mixing being different, Photoshop doesn't have a quick way to mimic an artist's palette.

@Pokemontrainergigi: That makes sense (it's the same if you're going to color mix with markers or colored pencils, paint-style mixing just doesn't work). And there are some little tips he gives that cannot be mimicked without paint, but aside from that, it's very helpful.
