Artwork Description

Somewhere in an unreal land far away there’s a mysterious place where you’ll be able to summon the mighty seeserpent. Now it’s up to you to find the place, haha. Well it’s a free piece I did during some jobs I still need to finish but I needed a change.
As it seems to become more and more important to the audience to talk about the process of creating a piece than to just enjoy the result, here we go. This is another one I didn’t paint from scratch, instead of sketching I used some 3d apps. So its more a matte painting than a painting and it’s not really a 2d painting. I used Zbrush to create the basic form of the strange rock formations, took it into Vue and where I build and rendered the complete landscape, after that I took it into Photoshop and changed the color the way I wanted it, than took the whole thing into Painter and painted over the whole piece to give it kind of a “painted” look and applied the figures and switched from Painter to Photoshop and forth and back top paint in more and more detail till it looked finished to me Smile.
Hope you like anyway, thanks for looking Smile

This is a brilliant piece, Uwe, and I was interested by the account of how you created it. I love the rock formation, the light and the colour -everything about it, in fact. You really have a huge talent!

Well, the computer and different software may make some things easier. But NOTHING can replace the ideas and imagination of the artist. Therefore I pay biggest respect to your work - this piece is really a great one!

Well I'm not right up there to recieve an editors pick, i probably just should spend more time on my work to come up with something really good. But i had and still have to do so many comissioned work that i hardly find time to do some cool private fantasy stuff, well you know we all need the money Wink.
Thanks so much Bill for your nice words about this piece here and over at CG-Talk, you know your opinion means a lot to me.

Strange that people seem to like my quickly done pieces always more than the ones I spend a lot of time, lol. This one only took two evenings Smile.
And yes, I love to play with different software, well I bought all the stuff so I think I should use it from time to time, lol Smile.
Thanks so much for commenting my friend!
