Swamp Ruins by SnakeToast Swamp Ruins by SnakeToast
I've been working on this environment on and off for a little while, and finally got it to a point of completion that I'm satisfied with.
This environment fits into the same world as the Corpsefly Mother... The ruins were of a noble and orderly city that was destroyed when a young sorceress's love was spurned by the nation's prince. Enraged, she turned to the dark arts and destroyed the city... by day it is still hauntingly beautiful, by night, it houses the very pestilence that destroyed it...

Around 15-20 hours I think? Including thumbnailing and such... photoshop and a cintiq.

Searched 'swamp' on google images and found this. The light shafts are a nice touch. The redish flowers and fungi look great against all the green; and all the moss looks cool on the ruins. I will fav this.

This is beautiful,I got more of a Fallout vibe from it though like this is what New Orleans or Mississippi would look like after the bombs fell.
But what you said is great too.

You're quite welcome! At first I thought there weren't any comments on it and I was all "WTF how could something this awesome not have comments?!" then I noticed that there were hundreds and I was like "Oh... good". But yeah I hope one day I can have half the ammount of talent you have! Keep up the awesome work!

I'm lucky enough to have a cintiq at work, but i use a wacom at home.
The main things i find useful (if you're a photoshop user) are to use a brush with other dynamics (that controls opacity by how hard you press) and to use alt while in brush mode to color pick-- that helps speed up the process!
