My final entry for the CCC, for the secret hideout category, a tower in the moruth swamps of nocturnus, accomodating spies of the black spire. also for GOH chI:B
Originally this was going to have a dragon on it, but i ran out of time to learn myself in the art of making dragons. oh well, next time.
before anyone asks, no this isnt the slightest bit stable
Like others here, I'm loving the textural work. I think that the color (or in this case, mostly just value) blocking works beautifully, too. All of that visual activity created by the textural techniques could easily have gotten out of hand and become too busy. But the color blocking seems to temper that a bit and create a wonderful balance. Great piece!
I am amazed by texture tyet again, but do you not think you have gone overboard with the helms and hair? I think that part may not be as realistic as you would hope. Maybe the long gray hair would work better?
Good job as always..though I gotta agree with previous comments...looks like a gentle summer breeze will knock it over and kill all the people hiding out in it. Oh well I take the suspects inside are guilty regardless other wise they wouldn't be suspect now would they?
