Attempt #2 at landscape painting on an iPad after following a ton of tutorials on drawing light and value. Trying to figure out wether drawing by hand is easier than 3D + post in PS to create a phantasy-world kind of feel.
Here's a goody for you! Love relaxing to nature sounds and got some headphones or a surround sound HiFi system? Listen to a 3D field recording of the beach like in the picture above. Note: Will totally suck over stereo speakers due to crosstalk and phase cancellation effects. More info here. Enjoy!

Phantastic! Love the diffuse lighting.
http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/ - check out ryan church's dvd's. I think a hybrid approach can be very beneficial.. rough it out in 3d then bring the texture/details in in photoshop. All in all it can't hurt to know your way around creating landscapes from scratch and then applying a lighting and mood. conceptart.org and the massive black folks are also super legit. if you email me at http://scr.im/vmedium I'll send you this very high quality brush set with tools presets included.
@Eli Schiff Thanks :D
@jt dimartile Great tips, thanks a lot! Yeah I was thinking about using the proxy technique for more complex scenes. I think @Warner McGee also mentioned that. For this one I started with lighting, all b/w only and after that applied value. Worked quite nicely. It's funny how these things look awesome on a small scale which makes me think it just takes either much more practice to draw it better in the same amount of time, or use smaller brush strokes and just take more time to get all the details right. I'll email you tomorrow when I'm back in the office. Btw check out http://scr.im for giving folks your email address if you want to hide it from spambots ;) - again, thanks a lot! Much appreciated!
I really like the color palette you used. Also, I see value in being able to do both. Being able to paint from scratch has a ton of value from a concept art standpoint.
