Kaza Rhun by pixieface Kaza Rhun by pixieface
Another painting concept for this rpg thing I've been working on. Kaza Rhun is a large, tube-shaped city set back into a granite wall in a vast underground cavern, beneath a "gasp" - which is an airhole up to the surface. This painting is at noon, so the sunlight is jutting directly down to the water below - the only time of day the cavern sees sunlight. A gasp is useful for a number of reasons - mainly because of the surface run off and rain bring down lots of water and nutrients from the soil, and little creatures too - which makes the cavern below and its lake very fertile. The lake grows bioluminescent mushrooms, too. :)

This was done a while back, so I forget exactly how long it took. Much frustration with OC's lack of easy textures, hence... very cheap and horrible textures in Paintshop Pro (which I hate, but it's all I have). Came out okay, considering.

(Open Canvas, some time more than an hour, wacom tablet)

I'm reminded of the Tower of Babil from FF4

GAH! Hit send too quick! XD As I was saying... I've never played FF4! Is it any good? :D I'm a big fan of the series... just got into it at a late stage and have always wanted to go back and play the earlier ones. :)

Oh! Aye!

It's not my favorite, though it's definitely one of the better'ns.

Also check out 6, that's one of my favorites.

1-3 and 5 aren't the greatest, I fear. Though 1 is classic.

Good fun. A little corny at times, but fun.

The thumbnail looks straight up like a photograph. No lie. That's insane. This must have taken a while but it looks gorgeous XD

A photo? You reckon? XD Wow. Well... thanks! Every time I look at this I think, 'hmm, really out to do another, BETTER version of this because this one is rubbish...' but, meh. You live and learn.

I don't hate this one, but... I could do better. One day, I might.

Ah, we can always do better! If it weren't for the drive to outdo ourselves, artists wouldn't exist :)

This is true. :D I am feeling positive and happy about the art thing for once, too. Which is bloody marvellous!

*grins* cheap texture brushes. I mark myself "must try harder". XD Ah well. I need Painter, to get some decent textures in my work - Open Canvas is a good deal too smooth to draw rock and such without spending a gazillion years doing it by hand. Yuck... Must learn Painter, bad me. (;

Dude, you do backgrounds really, really well. I want to see mooooore! :D

*whines* but backgrounds take AGES and they're not fun! XD

Seriously though, thanks. I (personally) think I suck at them, and I hate to do them because I haven't had enough practice. 99% of all my backgrounds get ditched, because they suck. I'd much rather just paint people...

Oh, thanks! Took bloody ages... and OC doesn't like texture brushes, so I had to use sucky Paintshop Pro. Oh, for my other computer, away across the ocean, which has Painter.... *sigh*
