dgeges - Dragon's Lair

Hello everyone !

Nice subject, I really like it !

For now, i'm still searching... And I do a first speed sketch yesterday. I'm not really convinced by the composition, so I'll do other sketches.

Thank you everyone !

I don't know yet... So I did another sketch :

But, maybe for a mattepainting the first one is more interesting.

If you can make a matte painting out of the fire one, it would turn out epic But I reckon you should start asap, making realistic lava environment is quite hard.

update

Hi !

this is an update.
I work with a larger format and black border, because i put first the perspective normally and after i'll rotate.

I changed a little bit the sketch too to have a better composition.

Coming along very nicely, I can picture the lava stream going toward the camera and light up all the rock on the way. Its going to make for a very strong composition!
