is melting down. Better go check it out just to be sure.

I guess this is what I came up with for the finish of that wasteland WIP. I like the concept for some reason. Some huge power plant in the middle of nowhere generating power for god knows what, who knows how.

Took about 5.5 hours total, and aside from an initial texture underlayer done with a sponge brush, was overwhelmingly painted with a small round brush.

Photoshop CS5, Cintiq.


EDIT: Yay a DD! This is extremely unexpected. And it's not a tutorial! Fantastic. Thanks DA!
Remember: if it's a picture of a wasteland, it will remind you of Borderlands and or Trigun. Remain calm, as this is completely normal if it happens to you.

"And it's not a tutorial".. That really made me laugh.

Nonetheless, love that rough textures on the ground. Total contrast to the distant powerplant over yonder. :)

i love the background the most, it has a very delicate sense of mystery and that altogether makes the picture more intriguing. beautifully done.

Don't ask me why, but when I look at this I can't help but think: Trigun.

This reminds me of Digimon Adventure, when the digidestined are walking around the desert and going to that factory or plant.

Borderlands? Nonsense! This has Mirror's Edge written all over it...

But in all seriousness congrats on another DD!

I'm still thinking of making Artitechts as an actual blog/website. Seems like a logical starting point, hahah.

I've just been working a full time retail job, nothing too special. It's sapping up a majority of my time ahaha but keeps me afloat with student loans and all.
