I wanted to try a more dramatic lighting scheme with my first piece and as I really like the tone I thought I would add this as well Once again I hope you enjoy this and please let me know your thoughts.
My submission for the Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls contest ... WOHO, I made it on time! xD Had just a few days available, so I'm really glad to have got it done. Didn't look other submissions up until now, because I knew I'd never participate if I did. I was right, the other stuff is so amazing O_O Well, I decided to go with the templar, but take my own spin on him. Took some concept art as reference, took the main features from there, but designed it a little bit differently. Will upload a timelapse vid in a couple of days as well Didn't want to make a too dark picture, but was aiming to get a mixture between ingame-style and Blizzards awe-inspiring cinematics, without getting it too realistic, wanted to keep the painterly look. Guess most other stuff uploaded is much darker ... well, I didn't want that this time :3
After two weeks I finished my entry for TR Reborn Contest
Image was made in Adobe98 color space (rendering + postprod) stored in 8bit color depth, PNG format. Original was made in 16bit and it's also available. Programs I used for this work: Daz Studio, Maya, Mudbox, Mari, Maxwell Render and Photoshop.
To all of you who enjoy my work I am re-entering my artworks into the competition and would be greatly appreciative to all of you to look at my work again as all of your favourites and comments have been deleted when my work was removed. I like to get back to each and every one of you who honour me for taking the time to favourite and comment on my work and look through your galleries to reply in kind, thank you. To those who are interested I wanted to experiment with this competition by taking a base photograph and drawing directly over the top, adding the lighting the phantom and the smoke as well as to heavily edit the base photo. I have edited all photos to make the subject unrecognisable. All of the references used as a base belong to me and were taken for this contest.
