A Night at the Ruins

Another artwork inspired by Elder Scrolls Online! I am a dummy!

I did a lot of portrait work last year, both for my clients and as personal projects, and I felt it was about time to try something different again and learn something along the process. ;) (Wink) My love for all things Elder Scrolls and the new Elsweyr trailer inspired me to the scene you can see above - a group of adventurers spending the night in an old ruin, seemingly oblivious to the dangers that lie ahead. EVIL Laughter! 

To challenge myself, I created the basic forest, ruins, characters, mists and lighting in Carrara and then exported all of that to Photoshop to paint in all the details, and that went a lot better than I feared!

I also created my very first Khajiit character, because why not! :D

But better have a weapon ready if you decide to jump in there. ;)

Looks cool though it's too bad it's not at a higher resolution so we can see the characters better. :)

Most of my artworks have been portraits of late, so I wanted to try something else again for a change. There will be more better-looking characters in the future, I'm certain! ;)

Full scenes are fun, they show the characters in something like their natural setting and you can imagine a bit of story to go with them. The only problem is trying to make sure that the characters who should be receiving focus are more visible than any secondary characters. The picture looks cool but it would be nice to better see the PCs in the background IMHO. I'm not sure how I'd have framed that though other than to pull everything in closer together. :)

Great contrast and color.  It does look like something out of a game.
