Default Hey people

Well what can I say about this one this is the first time I have painted a landscape in Photoshop. Well I have tried to show an abode in the middle of the mountains, I choose snow and did not paint just a green scenery as I think cold environments and loneliness go hand in hand with each other atleast thats the way I feel. Now this is really not my project that I wanted to submit for this theme but unfourtunately we are in the month of Feb and it ain't a freaking leap year to top things off so this is kind of a hurry hurry job, just wanted to participate and I guess I will have to pray to win this one I actually even uploaded the image in the wrong forum by mistake. The project I really wanted to submit is still in the process of completion. So lets see what can be done

Well I think all the submissions were great and may the best man win, and that ain't me for sure not with this one atleast hey thats the way I feel

Well I decided that the advice I got on my entry was just too good to pass up. I felt that my outpost was letting the landscape down too, so for other people to say the same thing forced me back to XSI to model a better outpost. I spent more time this time and sketched up a few designs based on pagodas from China and Japan. Im much happier now, and this will bne my final entry:








For anyone that wants to compare to the original, here is the link:

Massive special thanks to Ricardo and Suirebit for the invaluable advice.

Default Heaven's Last Outpost At the Gates of Hell

I tried to depict the castle under siege by such a great and hellish army that it would seem very abandoned.

Default The Lighthouse

Hey everyone,

Here is my entry for the Gnomon Workshop "lonely outpost" challenge. Been working on it non stop since the challenge was announced and I think this is my best work so far so I am happy

The Idea is that this is a lighthouse from another world. And is over run by a vulture like creature that are scavengers feeding off any life they can find.
I think a light house is a great example of a lonely outpost. Most lighthouses are run by one person who is usually alone and 100's of miles away from anyone else and are known to either go insane or kill themselves. So I wanted a very dark creepy atmosphere full of odd shapes and color. A place that if you had to go there and work, you would feel like not even god would be with you.
