Spire is such a depressing, scary place. It's beautiful but no one would like to stay there, alone in that inhuman environment. When I played Revelation for the first time, it took me four (entire) days to finish Spire, yet I was already like "GET ME OUT OF HERE !!"
Poor Sirrus.

I wanted to paint this one since I played the game but I didn't have enough time and motivation. Holidays and DA are two very good reasons to finish it.

A5 (my scanner is small), acrylic on canva board.

Myst IV Revelation belongs to Cyan and Ubisoft.

Wow. Very good evocative mood painting that captures the feel of that Age.

There are no words, to explain how absolutely perfect with this.

Even SIRRUS would be proud.

Ooooh, this makes me feel sorry for Sirrus!! I loved Spire, but yeah, I wouldn't want to be stuck there.

No one wants to be stuck there I guess. Thanks for the comment! :)

Tu as pris des cours de dessin/peinture? Parce que vraiment... wow.

:wow: toutes ces étoiles me font saigner les yeux :XD:

Non sans rire, j'ai pris des cours généraux d'arts plastiques pendant sept ans, et des cours de bd pendant deux. Là j'ai arrêté parce que je prepare des concours cette année (en plus de mon master), et que ça pèse dans l'emploi du temps.
En fait aux cours je préférais largement le pastel à l'acrylique parce que le pastel, on peut le mélanger directement sur la feuille avec les doigts MDR. Je dé-tes-tais la peinture.

Mais il y a six mois, je me suis remise à l'acrylique et me suis rendue compte qu'il y avait moyen de le mélanger direct sur la toile, ce qui est vachement plus cool. Ah, et qu'on pouvait peindre avec les doigts aussi. En fait, tout l'effet marbré sur cette image est fait avec les doigts. Je te raconte pas la gueule de mes mains après. :XD:

:rofl: En effet, vu le tableau, j'imagine... :XD:
Ah, je me disais aussi, pour les cours - tu es vraiment douée en tout cas. Et je te comprends, pour les doigts... moi, je m'en sers tout le temps pour estomper le gris, et après... :mwahaha: les doigts d'alien!!

Bonne chance pour les concours et le master! ;)

Merkiiiii !!!!
Depuis environ deux semaines je suis sur une toile A3 qui est aux trois quarts finie là (je la fais en même temps que je te reponds MDR). Comme il y a un certain narayani marteau en tout petit dessus (un peu comme ci-dessus), je me suis dit que je devais te passer l'info :)

Vache, un A3! Respect...

It is... perfect. And so... sad. Spire impressed me very much. I wish I could just forget this place... Cold, desolated and without sunlight... That's why I think Sirrus is a real GENIUS and a VERY STRONG person.

Very strong, yes. Especially when you think at his previous life (just like "yeah I'm a king ! Where is the bottle ?") and then : boom, Spire, nothing.
:dead:

Right you are. But I played Myst that spring (shame on me) after Revelation... Now I understood that he's not strong... he is SUPERMEGASTRONG! =D
JohannesVIII's avatar
JohannesVIIIHobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL.
I hated him SO much after he trapped me in Myst. I shouldn't have trust him... That was a looong time ago XD

I'm glad you played it, I think it's nearly the best game :)

Oh wow, this is a beautiful painting and it really captures the look and feel of Spire. Absolutely stunning.
I felt the same way, mind you. So desolate, no sunshine... :<

Thanks !
My first reaction when I linked to Spire for the first time in Revelation was : "OMG this Age is scary." XD

This is amazing! The fact that you physically painted it makes it doubly so.
