Atlantis: Raine Kuusi: Culture of the Dead

newest update: my final piece I guess. Well I managed to do it then, a surprise. I'm not really happy with how this looks but oh well....















update: my final thumb! crits much welcome!







update: decided to at least nail the composition of my final piece, dunno which one..













hi guys!

I chose to go to another direction, I read from wikipedia that in Platos original tale of Atlantis (he invented the thing), people of Atlantis had first been noble and good, but became later greedy for lands. They attacked Athens, and Zeus destroyed their island as a punishment.

So I kinda thought that maybe Atlantis was corrupted BIG TIME! and as I was painting my Barrow Den sketch, and the den turned into a giant skull, I saw the potential and decided to use it. So this is the first concept sketch of some kind of a sacrificial pit that the people of Atlantis later had built for their strange rituals and stuff.

This is NOT a start of my matte painting, the painting will of course be horizontal and showing the city, not a single sacrificial pit, although I have plans to use the skull idea a lot more in the city design.

Stay tuned.. or if you have a life.. then.. not..... I guess..

this is looking good Ranath , cause' this is a mattepainting challenge try working in film aspect, horizontal, 16:9, HD , it will make you work in a better composition adding lots of elements to see

I guess my text part was intimidatingly long - I stated pretty clearly there that "This is NOT a start of my matte painting, the painting will of course be horizontal and showing the city"

This was just a concept sketch for an element that could appear in my matte painting.

but thanks anyways for the comment

haha. well i read it and I think thats a good idea! all the other things of atlantis you think of are a glorious underwater city and wow its so amazing blah blah but you're right! i think that would be a great change and would really stand out! good luck and cant wait to see your finished product!

hi guys! So I did another sketch, playing with different moods and color schemes for the matte. Of course there's no city yet to be seen - I wanna know first what the mood of the piece is gonna be like, before I can decide of the design and culture of Atlantis.

thx all for looking and comments

thanks, don't worry, I'll sink these islands in no time not that I was gonna use this one anyways, these are just concept paintings where I'm exploring mood and stuff.. they could even show dog running in park, if the mood was just right.. and if I could paint a dog



Gonzalo, rawwad, Reikon, thanks, good luck to you too
