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.
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.
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.
E.I.A (Enhanced Intelligence Articulation) computers of Mittelos Bioscience were used to automate minor surgeries using nano robots. These labs were one of the oldest of MB that they used glass material for the shelves.
