Another 30 minute sketch for the Daily Spitpaint group on Facebook. The theme was "Lonely Tree" which made me think of the hanging tree in The Witcher 3.

Grim but beautiful. Made me think "Game of Thrones"...

Thank you! I can't wait for the new series of Game of Thrones, only a few more weeks to go! :D

Funny thing is I've only seen the very first 2 episodes of season 1 to date; but itching to watch it all. My mind's eye view is almost entirely from the books. From what I *have* seen so far it "looks" faithful to the books as far as what I imagined when reading. :)

I must admit, I haven't read any of the books yet! D:
Normally I must read books first before movies/tv shows, but because I my boyfriend introduced me to the TV show first, I want to complete it before going back to the books themselves. I don't want to confuse things, haha!

Makes sense yes. I'm given to understand season 6 will diverge some from the books (as the TV series has now caught up to and passed the books!)

...Woah. That is intense. An awesome scene and your technique is masterful. 30 minutes?! Legend. I'd love to see you do a decaying Aperture Science test chamber like in Portal 2. I'd pay for that if I have to.

Oooh, I'm a huge Portal fan, so I'm definitely putting that on my list of things to paint! :D

I'm a big fan of how the lighting and shadow is consistent in the image. Fantastic work.

Really dark and impressive, strong feeling of sadness and maybe loneliness...
Well done once again ^-^

Well that's dark. I also need to play the Witcher series. :)

I've only played the Witcher 3, but it is definitely one of the best games I've played. The environments are absolutely beautiful!
Mc-Jayster's avatar
I've seen some gameplay! It does look really pretty. :)

Strong feeling like Always. And this feeling is very sad. Well done.

I agree with wolfsbane6, great atmosphere. It's kinda funny, I saw the thumbnail in the notifications list, saw the clouds and general silhouette of the tree and thought to myself "That looks warm and pleasant!". Then I clicked on it...

I've never played The Witcher 3, but it reminds me of the hanging tree in the first town in Pillars of Eternity.

I always like to contrast sinister scenes with colourful clouds! :P I think it's a bit different to what is normally expected. Plus the lighting is hugely inspired by the Witcher. The environments in that game are just so pretty!
