You know, this makes wonder if Epic Games would have a Painted version of the Gears of War video game. I mean, take a look at Okami the Japanese Dog. In that video game, it looks painted; so why not make a setting where the game itself appears painted like Okami?

Extremely well done. Your style is amazing. I can't really pick a fave out of this, it's all good. I can say the Lambent effects are spot on however. Just wow :highfive:.

This does not look like a good morning. I'd say it is a very bad morning indeed. Unless you like chaos. I want to go home now.

Woah Kari :) Nice DUDE!!!! good luck! This looks like a top 100 for sure. I just submitted mine and I totally got pwned. epic fail sadly.

How much time did you put in on this?

Thanks Line! I put way too much time into this. I didn't have time to start on it until several days ago otherwise I probably would have worked on it more. I was having so much fun I didn't keep track of the time.

I am going to check out your piece.

wow, so you had a good amount of time on this, was it all with one idea in mind?

I had been working on a piece for the contest since I first heard about it.. then the night before I was watching some artist's tutorial on setting up a scene and laying things out and it made me rethink my entry, i trashed it and went for this new layout so the shortened time killed me in the end.

Anyhow, I think you once told me that one or more of your pieces you did with traditional media and then scanned and mixed into a digital format, was this one all digital?

I just started making marks and going through game screen captures. There wasn't enough time to plan. Sometimes it's fun to not plan and see what happens. Sometimes I mix in traditional materials. It depends on the look I want. But there wasn't time for that either.

Yeah if I have a tight deadline I get worried about trying something totally new. But sometimes it is so tempting.
