"In the magical realm known as "Terratoff" creatures live and work together in tight knit kingdoms and villages. Living in a world of magic provides unique opportunities to utilize unusual abilities for every day life, including power sources.
Depicted in this digital painting is a common source of lighting for the wealthier homesteads, "dragon lanterns". When night falls and the discerning Terratoffian needs to find their way around a dimly lit dwelling, these little dragons follow them from room to room to light their way with their gentle flames. Once their patron settles in a particular room, the dragons take turns climbing in and out of cast iron lanterns to keep the room illuminated steadily. "
I have spent a ton of time on this one! It all began with a sketch in my morning warm up, and turned into this.
I started with a loose design of what I wanted, the modeled the lantern in 3d and threw some simple lights in. Once that was complete, I used the model and light render as a guide to create this painting.
Step by step visual guide of the creation can be found on my tumblr blog
