Large rock brush material (white) · How to draw rocks of the mountain’s surface
First, draw a draft.
The image becomes concrete when referring to the picture of the mountain.
Large rock brush is initially set to change size with pen pressure.
Draw with zigzag stroke from the back to the front by follow the direction of the red arrow and the pen pressure.
It is okay to stroke many times until your preference pattern appears.
Make a new layer on top, draw with a large size rock in zigzag stroke and put it in front.
If the size is insufficient, please scale it up by deformation.
※Large rock brush material is drawn finely in detail, so it withstands some expansion.
Also stamp the scattered rocks (top left of the image).
Create a new layer on top again, stamp with big size (or enlarged).
Place the rock in front.
Since each rock is conspicuous, need to modify the outline.
Make a new layer on top and paint out the outlines with white.

Create a new layer on top and fill the surroundings with grass.
※Weed brush and white grass brush used.
Also add grass with adjusting pen pressure to remain the conscious of the perspective .
※ Using short grass brush
If you make the background transparent, it will be like this.
Make a new layer under the grass and add a little of black to the gap.

There are white backgrounds in rocks and grasses,
so the ground tone can be easily put on the bottom without cut.
Paste a sky tone on the final finish.
