This was a concept piece for the ill-fated Horizons MMO, done around 2001 or so. I did a total of five such fully-rendered environments for the game, plus a whole mess of monsters and concept roughs. Then there was a change of the guard in Upper Management and all the work I did, plus that of the other concept artists, got thrown out by the new Art Director. It happens sometimes.
Big learning piece, this one. I started with pencil, finished with Painter 6.
A concept art I made for a MMO game project 《THOR》 of Lager Network - Chateau of Dark Moon.
When the brave heroes attempted to investigate what lies within the Chateau of Dark Moon - An old and stale manor of the Dark Moon Duke, a noble man who turned into a monster - They heard something stirred in the shadow. It's the minions of the Dark Moon Duke! They marched back to their nest from a raid, clearly there were some poor victims tonight. The vicious winged creatures filled the sky with harsh, unpleasant squeak. The full moon guided the army of darkness home with chill light.

So after about 10 hours of additional work and some messing with saturation and colour (most of which failed) ive finished my rework of Paradise Lost. I just could not help myself from working more on it, and i wasnt sure about the size of the supernova, now im happy, the nova is alot more epic and ive added another destroyed planet as well as flames on the distant ring world. Ive also added to the background space but mainly the biggest change is the nova.
Let me know what you think of this version, the old one can be found here [link]
ive also redone the two separate pieces taken from this piece. Theres the one which focuses on the planet which is here [link] and there is a montage which is here [link]

The conflict of good vs. evil is one that’s universally known. Can good exist without evil? Can evil exist without good? Are they opposites, or one in the same? Is the battle between light vs. dark, order vs. chaos, Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader, or PC vs. Mac?
Or is it within ourselves? Torturing our inner being until one expels the other.
That's a wallpaper I've been working on every now and then for fun, so I just wanted to share it with the community in case someone else wants to use it as their desktop. I hope you like it! Painted in Photoshop.
A group of outlanders were surprisingly welcomed in a battle they never would have thought to have. It was a General's order. While these outlanders had some acquaintance with the subject, then they are not an expert. It was an armed sentry placed by the General to watch for intruders.
