Fallen empire by kizalon
Cheers again.. here's my latest installment.. took a few days but I'm glad I "suffered" that much with it.
I could write a book about how this was made, and another book about the story! Hehe.. ok, let me just say that the bg is a place I visited last October and took loads of great photos of the place. Then combined and modified the pics heavily and then re-coloured and someways painted some places over. Had so much fun doing that! All other things are painted only in CS2. I started this piece as an attempt to do a matte painting practise, buuut.. you know how can easily go to another direction...
And I'm a person who craves a story in every picture I produce so just couldn't settle with only a landscape scenery.
Alright about the story... (It's from my unfinished book called 'Ordera') A young emperor is fatally wounded by his own soldiers while stopping them killing the boy who flies one of the feared 'equu dragni''s. He manages to escape with the hurt emperor, to desperately seek out the one person who can help to save him.
Hope you enjoy looking this. I'll be putting some close-ups and bigger version of this soon.
