Exploring by Mandi-Minamoto Exploring by Mandi-Minamoto
More school work! \o/

A concept painting for an environment I'm gonna build later in the semester (like, in a week aughhh). The assignment is to make an environment that matches the art style of an existing game, so it's like DLC for the game or something. Anyway, the game I studied was Uncharted 2. Colorrrssssss *u*


Put up a sort of process thing on my blog, if you're into that sort of thing: [link]

Hehehe, I got to Ringling College, for the game art and design major. It's a fantastic school for animation (which my major falls uner). It's probably a fantastic school for other things too, but I don't know anything about other majors, hahahaha.

This is fabulous. Did you have an intended location on the globe when creating the scenery? :)

Mandi-Minamoto Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2011
I did a lot of pulling from different locations... and a lot of inspiration came from the locations in Uncharted 2. Like, a lot from the jungle Borneo level, and a bit of Himalayas, and I believe that temple was referenced from India..? But it's all mishmashed together into some place that totally doesn't exist. xD

Ahh cool, I had a feeling it was the Himalayas!! The country I'm from, Nepal, is home to the Himalayan range! I LOVE seeing artwork based on its mountains. It makes me so happy to see and want to revisit asap... your art work is great! Keep it up!
