Hi guys ^^

Star wars art again ;)
This time I tried my hand with the more... matte-painting like background :)
As for the story for the picture: our apprentice protagonist, a sith inquisitor, who matched his mental strength with his physical might, takes on two other apprentice, to fight over the knowledge and secrets hidden inside a tomb of a late Sith Lord :)

Hope you like it ^^
I have a bit harder time to get the matte painting style working, or rather to wrap my head around the use of softer tones and colors and contrast xD Hints are welcome :3

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me

....Sorry, just felt appropriate for this piece. Great work by the way. Clap

Interesting way of doing the background. It's not as sharply detailed as usual this way, but it does shift the focus toward the foreground very strongly. I like the effect, honestly.

TanathielProfessional Digital Artist
Aye, I was experimenting with this type of background :)
I'd like to make drawings more similar to matte paintings ^^
They look phenomenal :3 + I really like the idea ^^
That... and I'd like to bump up my environment drawing skillz XD
