Environment #3 - Necropolis: Underground Ruins by BistroD Environment #3 - Necropolis: Underground Ruins by BistroD
Just fleshing out a little more details on the landscapes previously uploaded: [link]
I'm slowly getting the hang of this 'concept-design-whatever' style of working. i'm more of a manga person, this is not my cup of tea really, but in hopes of getting a job you must 'diversify' yourself a little.
Any comments/advise/critique/bashing is welcome.

edit: wow! thanks a lot for the DD!

It definitely has a good color scheme for the creepiness of the locale. The style reminds me a lot of the video game "Dragon's Lair". Don't know if that's good news or bad news.

well, the game itself was a torture device, but the art and animation were awesome for the time, so i guess it's good :lol:

I like it but there is one thing throwing it off for me, the statue, the front of it should be darker shaded on the arm and the lower front body unless there is a light source down there lol, otherwise its a masterpiece.

:iconbistrod:
BistroD Featured By Owner May 10, 2013  Professional Artist
yes, you're right! it should be darker. i put there that 'fake light' or volumetric fog to help separate the bridge from the statue, otherwise their forms would blend and it would be difficult to tell them appart.

I hope that makes sense, my english is a little weird haha

thanks for the comment!

:iconhaidimeng:
haidimeng Featured By Owner May 10, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
An idea, the little people on the bridge, one could have a torch. That would make up for the light and solve the blending problem! It is still a very well done layout!
Reply
:iconbistrod:
BistroD Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Professional Artist
it's a good idea. only problem is that in this series of landscapes i have already put a torch in one and a bonfire in other, repeating light solutions wouldn't look good portfolio-wise, i have to come up with other kind of light source hmm...
good advice nonetheless, it's nice to get comments like yours, so thank you very much!

You're welcome :) Only other thing i could see doing would be some fireflies but they would take away from the statues importance...

That statue kind of reminds me of Nekhbet, the Egyptian vulture goddess.
