Sometimes its fun and challenging to take a simple premise of a “forest” and see how a little creativity and imagination can expand upon it. In this case where I was exploration ideas I came up with Giant lily pad based one and a giant mushroom variant. Nothing really original but again fun to paint up.
Battle map similar to what you would expect in a classic role-playing game like Final fantasy 1-6 or chrono trigger. So all the action will be taking place on the field below this illustration.
When I set out to create this tile I wanted it to have a hand painted quality. One that illustrates a lush pallet, wonder, and the vastness of the world. In a sense to have the quality of a typical Studio ghibli background.

I always like to get the drawing of a painting to around this level. From here i can plan the color pallet and lighting of the scene. Of course as a painting comes into creation, it at some point or another takes a life of its own and changes will naturally develop.
