Yosemite Valley by chateaugrief Yosemite Valley by chateaugrief
I thought I'd do a snowy painting of Yosemite for Christmas!  So yeah, this is as close as I could bring myself to painting snow.  Anti-snowcial.  I've said it before.  I'll say it again. 

Here's the link to the Webcomic madness.

Very nicely painted. I love it. What did you use to create this digital painting?

thanks for your support!
For my paintings, I use mostly photoshop and some Autodesk sketchbook.
For my comics, I render the backgrounds from a 3D model, pencil and scan
the characters, and then use photoshop or sketchbook to produce the final image.

Thank you!  It's always flattering when someone mistakes a painting for a photo--means I got the light right.  I do a painting every week to go along with the webcomic.  Glad you enjoyed it!

dang are the mountains really that high? I'll have to go see them one day

yes, they are that high.
The valley floor is about 4000' elevation.
El Capitan is 7569' elevation and Half dome is 8839' elevation.
With an average width of about a mile (5280'), the walls around the valley
can be almost as tall as the valley is wide.
