I was thinking of a cross between Dark Souls and Final Fantasy XIV; either way lets pray for our hero with his imminent encounter with the malevolent inhabitants of this friendly purgatorial-like place
Not quite spectacular but thanks! This is a production/design pipeline sort of workflow for the very purpose of showing an art director the idea you want to portray, hence you need to whip this up fast; if it made the cut and needed to be fully illustrated I would put more time to render it to death and mattepaint with phototextures for realistic looking piece
yup, but it still requires some skill and the proper imagination to get the atmosphere and scales just right the way you managed here. I feel reminded by the epic darksiders landscapes. :-D You have a great gallery btw. Keep going!
Maybe not soo much of skills, but knowledge, which in the internet era is easy to acquire This said, fundamentals are crucial to achieve a good composition. I used to think details would solve problems, but it's secondary. Here I emphasis on value and separation of planes, this what creates depth and scale.
Well this sort of work does come with a kryptonite that every single person who works in the creative industry considers the biggest nightmare ever: Burning out. Once you caught this you are simply incapacitate to work, to some it may take days, some for weeks and to some more than a month to recover! I use to laugh at this thinking it's lame and impossible to get, but it's a nemesis that lurks around the corner and ready to pounce; so this said a 9-5pm work wins big time when considering consistency and assurance
I do know what you mean. I write technical documents most days and that can drain me enough so that when get home and want to write fiction my brain is burnt out. I could write a thousand words and scrap them all.
30 minutes I like how you used few colors but still made it very interesting to look at, especially with the way it's kind of tilted so nothing is really straight up and down the title made me think of a piece we're playing in orchestra called Escape the Lost City
