Valley of Ancients by liiga Valley of Ancients by liiga
Detail shot: clicky.

So there exists a certain Lineage II fan site, the owner of which asked me to design a new layout for it. It had to be something green, but not *too* much jungle stuff in the header. And of course Lineage II themed. And then I got totally carried away and here you have it - the header, at least. I'll submit the entire layout a bit later.

As for the contents of the picture, I had an interesting time trying to get the patterns on dynasty armors juuuuust right, same with the BBH. The staff the orc is wielding is made up though as I couldn't think of anything from the game that I'd like to see there. There are teensy bird skulls hanging in the tree - what's up with there being barely any birds in L2? There are a few spirits floating around the dwarf by the tree. Why? If you've played the game, the name Kassandra might ring a bell.

Corel Painter 9, Wacom Intuos, took a bit over 2 weeks. And now excuse me as I scuffle back to working on commissions!

Oh and this should go without saying, but it's NOT clipart material. >.> So no creative "borrowing", thanks.

Lineage II and all that related stuff belongs to NCSoft.

I don't really have enough words to say how I find your art....

The lines give it something like 'class'... your drawings are like someone standing proudly. I fear my english is not good enough to use the right word ^^

But I love what you do. SO it's all that really count for me ^^

Sick lighting and I mean sick. I'm getting vertigo just looking at it. I just got Painter so maybe someday when I get better with it I can make something like this. I love the way the copyright doesn't interfere with the picture at all. I hate when it's so noticeable it's distracting. Hope the buyer was happy.

Woah, what a scene! Once again, more than pro paintwork. Love the lightfall and the details. The green glow in the right corner looks a bit artificial, but that might contribute to the mystical atmosphere here.

Thanks a lot! I was going for a feeling of something unnatural with the green glow, so sounds like it more or less creates the impression it should. :D

I always wish I had stayed on Lineage 2... the character art and designs are just so fabulous. Too bad its virtually desolate on the pay servers.

Looks great, the detailing is just ridiculous in this piece, probably one of your most detailed images to date. What I really like about this piece is the lightning and color scheme; Dynamic as hell.
