the choice was mostly really just cool mushrooms I had saved in my reference folder that I had the name ready for, and colors.
the amanitas are perfection! and the ink cap... and shizophyllum... aaand stinkhorn
add me to the list of mushy ref folder havers!
Wow, what a great collection! Upon clicking the preview, I was in no way prepared to see this many!
Gorgeous work, love the variety and how you kept the palette so tight-looking!
finally an useful and beautiful giude to learn the names of the mushrooms!
I love the schizophyllum!
@ink: oh yeah i wasn't accusing you of pure photo study (not that there's anything wrong with that)! It's just funny to encounter a fellow fungus ref folder haver. Makes me wonder how many more there are out there
Wow, I love this so much. You handled each complex shape perfectly.
Thankfully no nasty flies on mine! I tried to just use the refs for understanding what the respective mushroom is about and tried to visually steer from them as far as possible so maybe we have a collection of different pictures of the same types.
nice texture work on the velvety schizophyllum. I think I have the same ref folder (are any of your pics covered in big nasty flies?)
Thanks, those two are my favorites as well- turned out the best and look coolest in real life I think ♥
schizophyllum commune looks fabulous! (and hydnellum peckii yummy)
