Aqueos

Aqueos is a port city surrounded and entangled by an overgrowing forest. Though once pristine, it has now become a refuge for pirates, smugglers, and invasive tree growth.

I really like the play of light and shade that you used to outline the plans and differentiate (softly) the natural elements as those built :)

Good grief!! this makes me want to paint a copy of your pic, or a fanart or whatever! RIGHT NOW!! :D
I guess we have the exact same idea about how fantasy cities should look ;)

:D thanks! This one was a real challenge. Most elements were repainted several times before I was satisfied. I think it took over 40 hours.

any chance you saved progress shots to marvel at your workflow? :)
Wildweasel339's avatar
I don't have any process shots, but You can see my very first thumbnail sketches which I did for the client. here: [link]

The purpose of these was to decide which perspective of the city would work best for the story. Option 3 was chosen.

Well, this was worth it :)
