So the Semester is almost over. I am posting some of my environment paintings from Special Studies in Illustration. I painted all these in environments in Painter.
This was the first painting I did. I was reading The Princes Bride and I was inspired by the Swamp of Fire.
This was the second environment. I had just returned from the Dominican Republic and I was greatly inspired by that.
Here I tried to go in a different direction and I tried a desert scene.
Well who doesn't love creepy old trees that walk on their branches!
Here I went for a totaly different environment. I wanted to work with a new type structure, ice. I really like the way it still lets light pass through it.
I was watching the Planet Earth series and one of the episodes was on caves and how they can hold their own world in essences. I thought that was really interesting. It might be hard to see but I have a colony living on the cave wall. I visioned some sort of primal mining colony.
