Dawn of a New Era


9 August 2013 at 17:17:18 MDT

Commissioned full illustration for Lionel! Accompanied by his baby dinosaur companions, Milo the time traveling smiladon visits the not-so-distant future, to find nature reclaiming a once vast city. I had so much fun with this one, it was a really awesome open ended concept, and I got to stretch my art muscles a bit with a new challenging environment.

    the lighting came out superb. I think I commented on yoru tumblr about weathering, but I see it's there. The lighting. it looks very solid and there's a lot of depth too. well done.

      Oh thank you so much! I got your comment there after checking here, I think you are right though. I did put some in, but it could use some pushing so it's more visible from farther away I think. *nods*
