so here it is, a pic I have been working on and off all winter break! I is supposed to be the scene in Mossflower when Martin gets dragged into Kotir for trespassing, i Don't do enough backgrounds, also this was the first time I used a tablet, and it was great! But a little hard to control, this was great practice.
You know what would be cool. If all the artist that do redwall art got together and made a comic version of the stories. Some Tamora Pierce Fans are doing something like that right now. Just thought I would throw it out there.
you know there was this awesome band of artists that worked together on a project called project Mossflower. Their goal was to continue the animated series. They had story boards, voice actors, animators, but just when they were going to start production it stopped, and I haven't heard anything about the project in years... Its a shame but there is some great concept art to check out. here
I love that part in the book, but you need more stugaling and a few powned guards. He gave the guards such a hard time that they actually became somewhat afraid of him, and that was after his sward broke. Still love it lots though!
Nice work here.
This looks great
Ah this is wonderful, amazing work on the scenery and you depicted this portion of the book perfectly! The snow-covered stairs are so well done and I really like the taught rope and the character interaction, thank you so much!
Thank you so much! :W00t: this definitely took a long time to put in all the details, but it was a LOT of fun.
Nice! Well done!
Awesome! You really got the perspectives right!
Looks absolutely lovely! The amount of detail and the array of colors is very pleasing. And I do enjoy the way the snow lays on the walls. The only thing that seems a bit awkward are the shadows, but, they don't detract from the piece as a whole much. And I just watched all the episodes from that British-made TV show not days ago, which makes this even more enjoyable!
thank you very much ...truth be told, I was getting tired of working on it by the time I got to the shadows, and I guess I got lazy . I just watched all the cartoon too, It was a flashback to my childhood really, and it's responsible for this whole Redwall drawing spree.
Oh, I just absolutely adore those stories! Even though the show was really watered down, it still captured my attention! Oh, the things I could do with that story universe! I already have a story planned out in my head, which I've been trying to force myself to write, but to no avail! I can see scene after scene, like a comic, before my eyes. But the paper won't take hold.
I feel you! I've got some many epic stories that just wont come out no matter what I do. I finally just tried to sum them up to as little information as possible just to get a list of ideas and tales that I could mash together at a later date. I even tried to sum it up in one sentence or less.My shortest was three words. In word it went to three pages and I think I can add a few more now. *sigh*
I feel ya, I've tried so hard especially last year to finally write down some of the ideas I got going but alas I did not... but who knows what the new year will bring, I for one am Optimistic.
Heh, heh... they sure had their work cut out with that lad!
Good ol' Martin!
Good ol' Martin!
right? When I read it I was like this is awesome, I must draw now! lol thanks for the comment
There's certainly been a few scenes like that... like me with Gonff meeting Martin in jail - or Dotti facing off with Bucko Bigbones!
one that I wanted to do next was Gonff standing on Martin's shoulders picking the prison locks, But unfortunately school started again and finished works that take a long time become almost imposable, but we'll see maybe I'll come up with something.
Brr, that looks cold! Dude, you just get better and better. And I love how you're not afraid to go for the gusto with your art. This is really cool.
This is great!
Outstanding work Kotir! I like all the work you put into the details of the characters, and the snow patches on the brickwork.
ooo, nice background, nice shading, nice perspective! I can't believe this is your first work with the tablet. Wow. I really like your castle walls and doors. Just very cool.
Thanks my tablet is everything I hoped it would, and more
now I want to read Mossflower again.... AGH why in the middle of reading Dealing with Dragons? T^T
I know! I was hoping to finish Mossflower before school started back up, but I ended up reading a whole lot of the Return of the King. there are way too many books that I am right in the middle of.
ahhh i love thoes books! i need to read them again!
Nice backgrounda and overall pic design.
Very nice - the perspective on the background loks very good
