Artwork Description

This is a cover for a Vivendi game. A sort of 'follow the yellow brick road' through the land of chess. The challenge was keeping the far city and Queen piece sharp enough while not clashing with the other main characters in the foreground. This was done in Painter and Photoshop.

Thanks for the kind words. I created the border first in Illustrator then in photoshop and added some acrylic textures for a dirtier feel. Then brought it into the main illo. so I could adjust the color and feel to the main painting.

wonderful detail work throughout. Am especially amazed at how sharp the border is and how well it works with the detail in the main image.
