Loving your style! This piece blows me away. You seem to have developed some personal methods of drawing these... Could you do a tutorial or a recorded drawing sometime? I'm very curious how you get this effect.

Is that and overlay or multiply your using for the veiny/cracks of the rocks? Maybe an Darken with a smudge brush to push it after a stroke to create the under shadow? Its another great one! Great use of values. I must get back to doing some black and white practices in which you directed me a while back. Ive just been so busy painting all day at work. Kinda tired when I get home. MORE!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmmmm, no not really anything special for the rocks and etc. A bit of this and a bit of that for lighting and pushing and pulling, but the lines and shapes and whatnot are just normal paint.

I hear ya on energy to paint after work, never was good at that.

Cheers !

Hey, something I wanted to ask you... Have you seen the environments in the game "King Kong - The Official Game"? And what do you think about the environments in Halo, like Halo 1 and 2 for example?

Im not a big player so maybe theres some new game with realy awesome environments now, but when I played these games I always thought the environments were amazing and artistic, especially in the first Halo game.

Cheers, keep up the work!

Only played a bit of the King Kong game, I should go back and look. I know they did amazing things with what they had.
Loved the first Halo, not sure it's really about how it looked however. Can't really remember playing Halo 2... Hehehe.

Environment wise in games... Always been into what the Final Fantasy series has done (PS and PS2 Era at least) Shadow of the Colossus and Ico are golden, Zelda games always inspiring...

Anyhow, thanks very much ! :)

Loving the atmosphere in this one.
And I'll lay off the "I love the square, wood panel elements" comments, because I've said it every time! XD

Yeah, have you played Dark Souls? Well the entramce to Blightown looks similar. Not the same though, but similar.

TomScholes Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Oh interesting, no haven't played that yet. Definitely on the list.
So do you feel that because it's similar it's not as interesting?

Thanks for your insights.

No, quite the oposite, it brought back some memories of an epic game. I always liked the dark humid atmosphere from caves it makes them mysterious and that just how you want them to be.

Awesome! What kind of project is Oppidum - is it a graphic novel or something?

It's more exercise than reality at the moment, but I'd love to make a game out of it :)
