Your work is just amazing *____*
Um I wonder... How much your help with a few backgrounds would cost (Specifically 6-7 backgrounds)? :)

So ehm.... I have something to ask you. I'm working on a little project inside an OCT, and I need a background. And the very bottom-right one is utterly perfect. Since I'm no good at drawing, could I use that one? I'll put your name under it, and won't claim any credit for it myself, I just really need a pic of a dusty attic.

Pretty please?

Sorry, but these images were made for a commercial game so I cannot allow the use elsewhere. Thanks for your understanding.

Oh really? I didn't realize... Ah well, I can find stuff elsewhere (I hope).
This looks really good BTW. Reminds me of Professor Layton for some reason.

How long does it take you to do one of them?

:iconowen-c:
owen-c Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks, these took about 4-6 hours each if I recall since it was on a small budget, but most take longer than that. EH scenes were about 12 hours each, average personal scenes 20 hours maybe, and still others in the gallery that took 40-60 hours.
Nice work you have by the way. I seem to recall the Sakura river name from when I was into VNs

What is the rate for one of these? I'm really interested... Lol... (If you are still available to take up projects, that is) They're sooo gorgeous! I remembered asking about your rate for the EH backgrounds, and they were too high for me then >_<

You know, just looking at these pics i can develop a story in my head of what might be going on in the rooms... I bet it's a ghost story! I love the ones with the books and the cello... XD

Thanks, I am always curious about the story as well.
Being brought in from the outside to work on these projects I always only have a vague concept of the themes of the game.

Wow, and your focus on the lighting really shows! My favorite is the top right library, I'm a bit biased towards things that feel fantastical, and I think the lighting there's most interesting too.

Very nice rendering :o may i ask what software / render engine have you used? i love that style! :)

:iconowen-c:
owen-c Featured By Owner May 24, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks it's max and the default scanline renderer with a few passes done in mental ray
It is probably a technically primitive way of working but I enjoy the fast iterations and more direct control

Amazing stuff, as usual! Your attention to detail never fails. =)

I rather like this style! I think my two favorites are the library and the first bedroom scene; the lighting is what really makes them work.

very awesome OwO, i especially love the one in the second row on the right side with the wines and the the food in the glass cabnets (i think there cabnets) with the tables going down a row, it amazes me, love all these pictures to also, but that one would be cool as a computer wallpaper backround OwO

It's strange, though... The tables in the third picture seem to be lacking shadows... or is it because the floor is reflective on its own?

You have a good eye, those were "patched" in later and weren't originally there, must have overlooked it.
But I will say it's due to the refection

Amazing work. The great composition and lighting remind me of the Professor Layton games, my favorite series of visual novels.

Hard to say which one I prefer, since they're all done so well, but I love that library scene.

You are an amazing background artist - those look just like photos - I can see myself perusing the library as we speak. Fantastic!

Thanks the library scene was one of the glimpses into almost fantasy territory due to the immense scale.

Probably. As with any project I work on, I'll announce as part of a journal when it is done.
