Atlantis : Moy Shin Hung : The Forgotten

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.

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 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.

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!

great entry ... the only thing I don't like is the bright light on the rocks ... could be ice.
Good luck to you.

Awesome composition and depth. Very cool concept on the perspective.

Wishing I could see this with more photo and textures though.
