WOW, I'm finally done with this. The competition for this competition is fierce! I'm really proud of how this came out, and of what the other artists have been able to accomplish! My goal with this piece was to depict Lara in a heroic scenario without using violence to depict her intensity. That moment when she makes an impossible leap of faith... its a moment when everything around her becomes surreal, and her focus becomes survival. Danger lurks around every corner, and death is almost certain. Playing the game (which is amazing btw) really helped with getting a sense of how her character develops, and I hope you can see her hardened demeanor in this piece. I hope you all enjoy!
As a child I never liked attics. I always thought ancient things lived up there with the rest of the forgotten boxes and old toys--that there was something else up there that someone forgot. Something wearing old jewelry that it found in a chest and clothes that it found in an old box.
The fear that something up there was waiting to play was the subject of the piece.
Gears of War contest entry. This took forever...used tons of screen shots as reference to keep it as accurate as possible.
oh and I realised that the tattoo on augustus isnt even his XD I never played the game but found a screenshot with the tattoo and the guy looked like he had the same exact gear on...I have a version without it thou
I decided to a sort re-envisioning of the classic under-the-bed monster: The Boogyman. I had influence from those doctor's masks from the time of the Black Plague--I have always found those strangely terrifying.
When I was little I was afraid of the dark. The attic, being the darkest room, was my major fear. Even when I was brave enough to go into the attic I knew there was something there, standing right next to me and watching my every move.
So this is my entry to the Okami contest hosted by DA. I have to say that I've never played the game before, but it looks so good (especially the graphics ) to tempt me! So this is Amaterasu in both a wolf and human form (with the celestial brush). And the parchment part in the bg was from the contests resources.
And...I forgot what to say.......:/ But anyways, check out the other entries so far! Pretty amazing stuff.
