We use various tools and techniques to create artworks and 3D renders based on mountains. Here are some examples of our work:

Mountain Landscape Painting: We created this painting using acrylic paints on canvas. We used a palette knife to create texture and contrast. We used warm and cool colors to create depth and mood. We used a reference photo of Mount Everest as our inspiration.

Mountain Sunset Render: We created this render using Blender, a 3D modelling and animation software. We used a height map to create the terrain. We used a sky texture to create the atmosphere. We used a sun lamp to create the lighting. We used a reference photo of Mount Fuji as our inspiration.
