This concept shows a different approach on the small town 'Glott's Hop' of the british people in Cryteks 'Ryse - Son of Rome'. This is not an official concept art for the game! I used 'Ryse' as a base to build an own concept for this small village. I visited the guys of Karakter ( karakter.de/ ) a few weeks ago and started this artwork there under the guidance of Tobias Mannewitz. He had been art director on 'Ryse' for several months. I wanted to create a matte-painting for a long time, but never got around doing it. The week with Karakter was the perfect time to finally do it. Thank you guys again for the feedback and the help.

A commissioned painting I did last month for author Courtney Schafer. The scene underwent several changes in lighting mood, and it was not easy to mix together the white city walls, the mountains in snow and the barren landscape as these were all light in value. I hope you like it.
A recently completed work for a private collection. An exciting celebration of both the Hudson River School landscape painters and the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien. I have an extensive write up and dialog on the work online at:
