View Full Version : Atlantis : Moy Shin Hung : The Forgotten
07 July 2006, 07:04 AM
I know this is very late. I just know about the competition yesterday, time is short and I've got an exam coming up.. I really hope I can complete this in time. :sad:
The backdrop for this concept is an incomplete underwater photo-manipulation that I did awhile ago. I thought it fits. The first thing I do is try to sketch out the ruins. I find the architecture from the buildings from http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/arcana/1106 very inspiring and helpful, even though the culture might be different.
I was wondering, the current sketch spots a very vibrant blue which is common in my usual fantasy painting and whether I should resort to a darker, more saturated palette instead.

GonzaloGolpe, Inlakechh, Mpavel, jamesvfx: Thanks for the dose of encouragements! I need it. :bounce:
I feel sorry for not replying sooner. Been busy with midterm the last 2 days. Today, I am able to dig a few hours into this.
- finalizing the sketch on some portions
- trying to get the right color and contrast (while keep reminding myself not to overpaint and ended up too unreal )
I will constantly experimenting with the color. I think the foreground looks quite painterly.

Oh no, I've got less than 18 hours to go, if the deadline goes by the East Coast time (can anyone comfirm this for me?). Been spending the last 2 days adding as much detail as possible. I'm so spent now.
95% paint with Photoshop. C&C are welcomed!

Awesome composition and depth. Very cool concept on the perspective.
Wishing I could see this with more photo and textures though.

Submission1 (top) " A photo shot taken deep sea "
Submission2 (bottom) " An art with photoreal details "
Background: Once a glorious civilization, the city of Atlantis sank beneath the sea after a catastrophic-proportion disaster. Millennia after, the knowledge and culture of the Atlantian had faded with time. The light of the once proud city shines still, penetrating the deepest depth in the ocean.
Procedure: I spent the last 3 days painted most of what seen using Photoshop7 and only used a stock for the rock texture in the upper left, refered heavily for the temple in the bottom right and the jellyfish. Definately gained alot of insight as well as coping with my stress.
Bottomword: I would like to thank everyone who has given me support and the many other great submissions here for the inspiration and motivation. Good luck to all of them.
p/s: I missed my sleep and friends.. :(
