Here's another illustration for Vorpal Games' Red Aegis. This one involved showing a day-to-night, orange-to-blue transition of a city (Wimachanca) high in the Andes, built around a huge pyramid. It was difficult to work out the color transition in this one. I don't paint cities much and I find that when I do work on a  picture like this, it can be a bit of a rabbit hole. I could have continued adding details and tweaking this one for days.

As in the previous post, I've included the preliminary sketch and the grayscale study.

  1. Thanks, Dave. Honestly, if I was doing the same composition without any art direction, that's probably not the color scheme I would have used so I can't take too much credit for it. However, I was the one who slaved away trying to make it all work so I'll accept the compliment anyway!

  2. Thanks for this post Queader! Now I've got to get on and implement more thank you..
