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?
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.
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.
