Once again, I found some time to paint after a long day spent level building. There's something so relaxing about painting organic shapes.
I sometimes work with a documentary on in my other monitor, picking up colour themes and textures. If anything, this was inspired by a BBC series on rivers and the relationship, both good and ugly, between people and the natural world.
Prints are available, please see my journal for details.
Inspired by "I Am" by Dead Letter Circus. There was a neat interview with the lead singer, saying the song idea came to him when remembering playing in a dried up riverbed when he was a kid, imagining the river could flash flooding in.
It's been another full on week, but the most exciting thing for me has been having the level building finished! We're getting really close now, and I'm thankful that I have a little time left over to polish the levels and animations.
It's been a super busy couple of weeks, coming back from Sydney, going to a cluster of parties and events and working at full pelt on the game. It's been a while since I've had time to just sit down and paint original work.
So here's a one hour speed painting, experimenting with getting red to glow.
By the way, I've been invited to be on the Australian-Deviants chat channel on 7PM Monday evening for a live Q/A session, to feel free to drop by and ask art related questions! I'll add a journal when I have the exact times for those in other time zones.
I have habit of drawing a piece of fanart for any game I play that gets an emotional response from me. I also have a habit of being months of years behind the zeitgeist, so I have to admit, I only finished Journey this week. I think you could say I liked it.
