Ancient Sunset

in OnChainArt2 months ago

Hi all!

This is another work I did back in 2017 and that when I look at now I realize I've lost a lot of patience along the way. :D
Visually I still like it a lot nowadays but as for the concept I think part of the point is lost a bit, as the dinosaurs are a bit too far off and bright.


But here are some close up shots so that it's clear that they're over there. :P
The whole volcano background was quick as I reused one from an older work since it wasn't going to look the same. I photobashed the portal and for the buildings I found some free stock packs on DeviantArt and modified to my taste.



When I work on something like this I always start with a grid, there's no way I'm going to nail this perspective without some guide.

Looking at it after years I was surprised that it wasn't meant to be a night scene at the beginning.
This is the kind of thing that can bring an artwork up 10 notches but also can break it and sometimes with such big changes I find myself unable to be satisfied with neither the old or any of the new tries.

This is mind blowing. Looks like some scenes in Resident Evil movie and Batman.
Great piece.

Heehee one day, thank you! :D

I really, really, really love this piece!

Glad you do, thanks! :D

Nice! Patience can always come back if you find the right project I guess

:D Yes, I think it's mostly one's predisposition. Patience comes when things flow and feel fulfilling to do.

I agree
