Strange Places I by Pau-Norontaus Strange Places I by Pau-Norontaus
So yeah - I decided to finally start studying BGs and digital painting.
This is the result of this morning's 3,5h of practice, and I gotta say I'm pretty
pleased with it, what with being the first real try and all : D
Expect to see some more concept sceneries from me in the future.



Photoshop, my textures, Intuos4, 3,5h

The best thing about this drawing, I think, it's the strong impression of brightness: even the darker shapes of the dragon and the castle seem to come out just because light defines them.
And I love the harsh feeling given by the lines - they're straight and not at all soft, like something you could create by using a pencil.

My compliments!

Tämä on kyllä todella komea. Tykkään kontrasteista ja varjoista. Ihanan pelkistetty, mutta silti niin tarkka <3

Not sure if it is a wyrm or dragon, but I like it. I also like the idea of dragons hunting for food inside the harbor city. Humans should have some towers to shoot at them.

You are free to do the backgrounds in all my arts :XD:, but I am afraid that's not what you meant is it? XDDDDD

Try cities and streets. Personally they are the ones I find trickiest.
