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 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:
