MORE ENVIRONMENT CONCEPTS!



Here are a couple more environments I came up with. I'm totally having fun with these. Environments don't come as naturally to me as characters and creatures do (and when I say "naturally" I mean "fooling my clients into thinking that I know what I'm doing"), but I do have just as much fun coming up with them. I just need to put in the mileage. It's tough to find the time though. More to come...

Hi Andy :)

I'm not sure but it looks like you started off greyscaled first... When I try to do that it comes out pretty dreadful lol! These are fantastic though, the colour tones really set a solid mood especially in the second one. I hope you get more time to do more environments they're looking really, really good!

Outstanding. I think I have the same problem as Gavin. Even when using Multiply and Color Dodge.

I love the details in these and the lighting is amazing. Great mood too.

these are really cool andy.. it's like you took superman's ice cave and industrialized it :)

Gavin- thanks for the comments! No, I didn't do these b/w first. I went straight to color. But I do see why you would think so. I toned down the colors on both of these as I wanted a more muted color scheme.

Matthew- Thank you!

Kinman- Thanks Kinman! Yeah, it's like Bizarro's Fortress of Solitude or something. No, it's more of a secret mystical city within another secret structure made underneath a city of rubble. I hope all's well with you!

Hi andy!

Just wanted to say I saw your piece for God of War II on the March issue of GameInformer magazine. Didn't see your usual signature on it, but I just KNOW it's yours! Kratos fighting monsters on Gaia's(?) shoulder, awesome, EPIC!
