Commission - Green Gem Grotto by priteeboy Commission - Green Gem Grotto by priteeboy
This was a wall-art commission done for :iconvypor: who is fond of glowing green crystals and had a concept for a cave where such crystals have grown and glow, it was requested to be a little similar to my personal work Glitter Grotto which as one can see, shares the same basic idea =p

Unlike that one, I used no 3D in this. I know it isn't my "best" work, but at the same time it wasn't a high-paying commission so there was only so much time I could stay motivated to keep doing it, It was also tempting to use 3D, especially to get that cool glassy look on the crystals. But every once in a while I feel obligated to do a scene just in Photoshop alone as even I feel that "painted" scenes often look more artistically nicer than 3D renderings, even though to me - 3D is a bit more fun and yeilds more believable results. Still, here's another digital painting excercise at the very least :painter:

Hopefully I'll have some personal stuff to add soon, it's been a slow couple of months, totally unlike me :ashamed:

okay, i could be wrong, but i have a vague "rings a bell" feeling that i've seen this image somewhere else in a more full colour range. i'm not accusing you of anything, i just feel like i've seen it before- you might want to have a look around and see if it's been reproduced somewhere.

There's bound to be tons of images like it - Crystal caves have been a big part of dozens of games (and some movies) over the years.

yeah, i realise that- i meant this particular image. y'know- art theft sense tingling. it's been wrong before though, so don't take it personally.

i could just be losing it, i guess.
