    Post [WITHDRAWN] January Entry: Western Mythkir Bay - Ship's Graveyard

    So I was in the process of putting together a map for my home game and thought it might fit rather nicely into this month's challenge. I love Tear's dark colours of Mythkir Bay. With the corruption from the south and sparse landscape I thought it could do with an old sea battle. Here's the map so far - a ships graveyard deep beneath the waves of Mythkir Bay:

    --- image has been purchased for an upcoming publication and as such the map has been removed from this thread and the entry withdrawn from the contest. I'll post the edited final when I get permission. Sorry to one and all and best of luck to everyone in the competition ---

    Moved from the original WIP thread (with all the associated line art and WIP stuff) here:

    And an update with some darker shadows and a few more colours in there.

    That's cool. Reminds me of my old fish tank from when i was a kid too.

    That is looking really great. From your refined sketch I could tell this would be a really nice piece of work.

    Thanks guys. Fiddling with the colours a bit more, added a runic spiral to the sea floor, and a few light rays coming from above to give some sense of depth.

    ... and a bit more tinkering. I added a subtle lighting effect over all the flat surfaces to simulate the effect of light coming through the surface of the water. To get this I used Clouds+Difference Clouds. Bumped the levels to get sharper lines. Inverted it so that the lines were white. Stretched and squashed the whole thing to get a more elongated pattern. Set the layer to soft light. Masked the whole layer and then brought it back by brushing the mask with a low opacity white fuzzy brush in the regions I wanted to light.

    I'm unreasonably pleased with how that came out.

    That lighting effect looks awesome, well done. I just opened up this image and the previous one and kept flicking between them to see it. Great stuff.
