Atlantean Chasm by ZackF Atlantean Chasm by ZackF
Hey there folks! Just remembered that I hadn't gotten around to posting up some concept art work I did a little while back. So I'll be posting up a handful of concept art pieces over the next few days.

They're all fairly rough and impressionistic like this one because of the timeframe I had to turn them around, which was a good exercise for me in prioritization. As with most of my work (particularly 2D work) I may revisit these when I get some spare time, so I might have a chance to implement critiques I get from you guys. Even if not though, critiques are always useful to learn things for future projects so let me know what you think. :)

Cheers!

That's always the best... no reason sticking to one section of the world when we have the internet to be able to provide us with reference from everywhere. :)

Thank you! It makes me really happy to hear people get inspired by my work, that's one of my biggest goals. :) Yep, it's a tank! Now what you should be wondering is, how did it get there and why was it left there? MYSTERIOUS! :noes:

the insects and wildlife are blind to the beauty of this place...the shadows still cling to the steps and passageways where life once passed as cracks slowly form and vines begin to reclaim what was once there own...they are also blind to such beauty...as their preception of lovely things is based on that which eyes cannot perceive and is beyond the hearing of those who have ears to understand them...

Hehe, well one thing I've learned when comparing my work with others is never ask "Can I do that?" but instead "How do I do that?" if you know what I mean. :) Thanks man!

I know its alot to ask but it would really help me if you could send me some tips and tutorials... If you wanted I could credit you in my work

I'm planning on working up some tutorials for general game art when I can find the time. I'm very forgetful so if you want to be sure to see them it would be best to deviant watch me, or deviant watch the #Game-Art group as I will submit the tutorials there too. :)

Thank you very much! Loose brushwork has been a weak point of mine for a while so I'm glad to hear it's coming along. :lol:

I wish I lived in a place like that, it's like something out of a dream. I would be lord of manner and emperor of all I could see. Of course, also in that dream would be 30 beautiful, full-figured beauties, some wearing stolas, others wearing nothing at all. All these beautiful servants would be most accommodating... :D

Lol, did I say too much? :P

Excellent work.

Cool story bro. Hahaha, just kidding, you know we've all been there. ;) Thanks man, glad you like it, and glad did something to get your imagination going... even if in an oddly erotic direction.

Cloxboy Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009
Oddly erotic? I think not, this piece was begging for that story to be associated with it! I was merely filling in a blank, just as I would when say seeing a beautiful girl sucking a popsicle... Hmm, ok maybe not that obvious. I'm not really making an argument here, just wasting time. =P

I just realized that the giant naked man in the scene may have affected your subconscious sexual desires, leading to an overcompensating comment. Or maybe you're just a crazy exhibitionist! There are all kinds of subtexts that could be implied here!

I'm a guy, that's the only ingredient that was needed here! That and I've seen a few movies with Roman orgies in them... So...

Good point. We do like the sexing! And as they say: when in Rome, get freaky deeky.

Nice work, man
I really like the blue coming from the bottom.

I think the temple could've been refined just a little more. Sharper edges would pop it out a lot more.

ZackF Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks Hunter! I definitely agree, I almost cringe looking back at how rough a lot of the stuff around the temple is, especially with it being such a focal point. Hopefully I'll have time to revisit this before long.
