Here's another one for my campaign. I've switched styles on the trees and I'm trying something new with them. Turned out ok, I think. I also did more of this one in SAI so it's about 50/50 SAI/Photoshop. This is mainly because I recently installed Windows 7 after a major disaster and CS3 doesn't run great in it for some reason. I'm having a bit of trouble with laggy/jumpy tablet pen strokes (grrr). Someone said I should probably just upgrade to CS5 but that's not really viable financially right now. =P
I'm going for an arid feeling with this one too. I have a western-style showdown in mind at some point in the campaign so I'm trying to convey the dusty frontier town aesthetic.
It bears indeed an arid feeling and the trees turned out quite well, too.
Is the red barrier in the north a kind of gate? As there is no fence or wall connected to it I have some trouble identifying it ;)
The red thing is a torii arch. There used to be a shrine there but now the torii is all that's left of it.
Very nice Larb, my only little nit-pick is the stroke on the buildings is a bit dark (for my taste).
Very cool, man. The tree stroke should match the others, though.
