Snow, concept art., David Smit (2D)



Title: Snow, concept art.
Name: David Smit
Country: Netherlands
Software: Photoshop

I made this illustration when I was working at W!Games in Amsterdam as a concept artist. It was for their new IP: Mistbound. The first game of the series is out already and the next few should follow soon.
The illustration was made in Photoshop, in about 1,5 days.

a great concept, very well designed, besides the painterly touch is fantastic, no doubt a great job, simple but effective, giving the star to perpestiva that is perfectly fitted.

This caught my eye the other day when you submitted it to the gallery, but I've been so busy that I forgot to come back to it. As others have said, you have a really strong composition in this image, I really love your use of perspective, and the striking use of colour against the monotonous snowy backdrop. I love artwork like this, which is visually simple yet evocative.

Lovely work, plugged.

An inspirational and painterly piece, very nice!!

So relieved you're not claiming you did it in your lunchbreak! (yes, I'm jealous of speedpainters ).

Thanks a lot guys! I'm a bit overwhelmed by the awesome response.

Leigh: Thank you so much for putting on top. It sort of feels like I unlocked an achievement (ooohhh thats nerdy)
SciFibrow: Thanks! hahaha, no I'm not a very great speedpainter. But don't be too jealous about speedpainters. In my opinion it's not about making as much of the same stuff as possible, but the opposite: making a few things that are refeshing and thought through.
ZuluSplitter: Thanks man!
Chupacabra: Merci monsieur!
abynum: Yeah I definately don't want to swap places with her! haha
Jadedarts: Thanks!
Nekranea: I'm glad you like it!
Irawan: Thanks a lot!
Felideus: Thank you!
FlorentMasurel: we feel it? whoah a mutiple personality giving compliments from all? Thanks a lot you all!
bobtronic: Thank you Matthias!
KaiS: Thanks a lot man! I'm very pleased this many people seem to enjoy it!
SpaceSoldier: Thanks man!
DOGJAUSREILY: Thank you! I can remember that the perspective was quite a challenge when I made it.
jingjingye: Thanks a lot!!

Haha we should make an icon for that, with that satisfying sound that you always get when you unlock one! Oh how I love that sound.

Excellent piece! Love the perspective and atmosphere you set.

Funny story: I was complaining to my project manager the other day that the average level of digital art in the Netherlands is a tad low when compared to neighboring countries. To show there are some real gems out here she showed me a piece of your work that was featured in control magazine! I'm glad she did and thnx man for helping me get some faith back !

Great image, David! I hope W! someday makes a game about a venture into the mist, but for now we will have to do with tons of pictures of people above the mist.

I don't know about the average level, but if you look at the top, at the concept art that was made for Mistbound at W!, for Killzone at Guerrilla and for all kinds of stuff at Karakter: there is definitely some incredibly high quality stuff in the Netherlands!
