I have been spending my week working on the vivi fanart challenge and doing studies to try and learn how to render materials in an environment. I did a Mountain study yesterday where I tried to capture atmospheric perspective, and today I did some warmup gesture as well as a water study so that I can apply what I learned to my final piece. I have been a=having fun doing these environment studies and doing them makes my fanart a lot less intimidating than I thought it would be originally. The second image is the applied knowledge of the first study I did this week.
If anything looks weird LMK feedback is appreciated.
