Character design final project: Environment

Don't ask me why we're doing an environment in a character design class. I guess the class IS called Character Design and Visual Development, but it is strange to have an environment suddenly lumped in there at the end of the semester.
I realize that there are a few design problems with this one (the repetitive shape size being one), but I was rushed to finish these and didn't catch the problems until it was too late to be worth the effort to fix.


  1. Awesome. I know how quickly you did this and it only makes it more impressive. This is really, really cool Sam.

  2. Ya this has one BIG problem: It's too good!!! I wouldn't even know where to start with something as impressive as this...good job!

    This is crazy good! Do you use reference or is it totally made up?!!!

    I love the colors. Everything you draw or paint ends up looking great. You're amazingly versatile, Sam.

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Sebastien: Took me maybe 5-6 hours.

    Tim: Idea and colors made up, but a lot of the textures are overlaid and then painted over to make them look natural.

  7. Fantastic environment! Those mountains are beautiful.
