Digital work. This poor soul has died of an infected wound she got from a wolf bite. She fought the wolf off but she didn’t have any antiseptic or antibiotics so it was just a matter of time when the wound became infected. Concept fan art for The Long Dark
This is fan/concept art for a game I’ve been playing, The Long Dark. This game takes place in winter in Canada after some sort of disaster. You’re the only one there( currently)and all you find are corpses. Or rather corpse. It’s the same guy everywhere. This is normal it’s alpha and either there will be more diversity later on or they need to save space for all the other things they have planned. I just had the urge to see what I would come up with. In this case an infection got the better of her, but wolves, dehydration, starvation, food poisoning, freezing, fatigue and plain old gravity are also options. Really, it’s fun. It’s been a very long time since I tried to do something along the same vein as a specific style( consciously anyway) and it’s fun challenging and sometimes hard 🙂 The overall colors and style are the same as in the game though the art in TLD is far more stylized than what I’ve done here. The long Dark is a brilliant game by Hinterland. It’s still in alpha and early access. It’s already a highly playable and enjoyable game so check it out if you like first person survival minus zombies but with a lot of wilderness and campfires. Some crafting, some shooting, lots of wandering and dying in a variety of ways. The full game is due in 2015 Right now the sandbox is available but there will also be a story line The Long Dark
I felt like painting something but didn’t really know what and then I remembered this photo. I started with that and apart from sketching in the shelves I figured out the rest while painting. This explains the difference in realism between the woman and the rest which was not intentional but I quite like it. Improvising also has a downside; please don’t mention the teapot :s
Me, I’m also still here but not in any cupboard or pantry. I’m stashed away on a boat for a little while house/boat sitting while the owners are on holiday. Very nice if a bit wobbly.
