Not mine, but I do know who's it is.…

Can you please help me find the rest? Maybe a journal to spread awareness?

Though I happened to know this one when I saw it. It should be easy to find out who the others are by dragging each image on Google's Image search. Not always perfect but can help narrow down drastically.

I have some questions about brush work. With opacity set to pen pressure, overlapping brush strokes usually cause lines with varying opacity, causing an unclean look, so how do you avoid that? Also, in this picture, those scribbling lines on the hill and the ground have hard edges, why do they still blend so well?

If you have other tips, I'd be glad to hear them too :).

With those hills I employed some different brushstrokes and layered work. I initially set up the overal round shape of the hill, making it smooth (usually with a softer edged brush). After that I introduced more smaller areas like the highlights and fine-tuning the shadows.
Lastly the thinner scribbly lines, which I just scribbled over it picking colours from the hill themself.
I might have also gone over them again with a big soft brush, in case the scribbles stood out too much.

So to try and sum it up, it's a blend of building it up in layers (working rough, then finer as we go). Use of soft smooth brush and smaller sharper where needed. A lot of colour picking to stay in tune and range with the gradient/hill already in place.
Getting used to pressing a certain amount or way could also help I think.

I hope that helps! It also got a timelapse video here:
In case you missed that part. It goes a bit fast but should still show a bit of the stages of the hills and ground.
The WIP image can also help along side that.…

Thanks. Also, when I paint, it looks like this:, which does not have that "painterly" look to it. In the mountains that you did:, each brush strokes are still clear and distinct, as if you painted with no opacity jitter, yet they still blend well together. How do I achieve that look, and avoid what I guess is overblending, like I did above?
AssasinMonkey Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
Ah, I see what you mean. I think on my mountains I had several layers over it afterwards, a big soft brush with general colour to bring it all closer together or something along the lines of Color Balance can do the same.
You can also try brushing over the entirety with different layer blending modes, such as colour dodge or overlay.

Another thing you could try as well, looking at your own image, is a minimum opacity. I sometimes use minimum of around 30% for opacity or size.
Allows some control over the opacity while not becoming completely transparent when pressing toot soft.

There's different approaches and I've become fairly used to it already but it can require a bit of experimenting or practice. Maybe one of these points might help, though.
