Another environment design illustration for my final. This idea has been gestating for a long while. I tried to draw it once back in 2010 here: [link] . The idea is a giant continent bridge build over many small islands that developed into a grand city. It has been controlled by all three races at different points which leads to clashing architecture. Time to move on to the final illustrations.
Finally a new image.. I've been so busy with work I almost have no time for personal stuff, but here's something I've been painting when I have a bit of time! It's not very refined but I really like it
I intended to go further with this one but got sick and tired of it so I 'll just call it finished. I might work on it more but chances are I won't haha. Time to move on to another painting. Hope you like this one.
(Image is blurred again on my screen. Hope it's not on yours)
:thumb333540803: [link] Please refer to the map above. TOP: This is the upper area of city SilverArch where the priests, royal family, and nobles live. It is 1 of the 2 major cities on Glitadale Island. Their architecture style is been heavily influenced by the sea elves, such as curves that reminds people of shells and conchs. One will also see a lot of ornaments and relief carving, with female figures dancing, praising, kneeling for ritual purposes as a part of the decorations. There are more stuff coming up, such as Bluemary Town and Ruined Temple of Goddess Malzula. BOTTOM: If you walk to South East of Silver Arch, down and cross the Sulisber Forest, there is a small town named Bluemary. The name is derived from their well-known special beer and wine. Behind Bluemary tavern there is a small church built with silverarch temple and sky garden style. You have to book for tasting the special wine during spring and summer. It is a great place to stay for a short vacation.
Basically I am writing my own fantasy stories that can keep my creative juice flowing.
TOP: The largest, most famous school of magic on the land of Ventaril. It has libraries, dormitories, hundreds of classrooms, cafeterias, alchemist and enchanting craftmen's chambers, warehouse, etc etc. The school was established during ancient times and got ruined, right now only parts of the school is recovered. As you can tell the school is pretty big, and it was constructed by summoned golem. During the "Big Disaster", as a period of time caused by unappropriate use of magic, a lot of things are destroyed". As a Result, there are some extremely powerful magic books sealed in this school， by the archmages who are probably the last groups that can use ancient magics.
BOTTOM: This is the school campus during the winter festival (equivalent as our new year celebration). Some vendors from Enchantment department are selling fire crystal amulets and jewelries to keep a person warm, and the green fire is caused by applying "rainbow powder" so that fire can change colors.
