The idea was to build a fortress, guarded by its natural environment. I put the waterfall in because it wouldn't make sense to build a fortress on a plateau, and not have easy access to H2O.
For lighting, I chose the morning sun because it cast a long shadow against the plateau walls.
Google sketchup was used to create the fortress, lighting and perspective. It’s what Kemp does at Massive Black. Sketchup is sooooo cool!!
I'll have to finish this later because I ran out of time.
Time: 30min modeling, 30min painting
I did another painting this week using the same process. It’s very refined, so I’m going to post it on my website instead, because it really doesn’t belong in my sketch blog.
