Dark side of the Sun by priteeboy Dark side of the Sun by priteeboy
Realism was completely thrown out the door in favour of something that simply looked cool for this one, I made it for a contest where art inspired by a song by Tokio Hotel was the goal (see here [link] hosted by *Egil21), Can't say I'm a big fan of the music so no point fangasming to me over it :XD: but as soon as I noticed one titled "Dark side of the Sun" - well I got a pretty strange but literal image in my head...A black sun, eerily still managing to illumate its surroundings with its feeble glow.

This was all digitally painted, making that the second one in a row done that way I guess. I can't wait to do something with my beloved 3D again but recently most of my ideas have little use for it and plus I feel obligated to excercise my general Digital painting skills again anyway, no textures or stocks used either :no:

Lastly, only hours before submitting this I was informed that a long-time and loyal watcher of mine *ErilisVampyre had passed away. Knowing that she would have loved this as much as all my other works, I dedicate this to her :aww:

Anyway, I hope you all like it :D

I remember playing that eons ago at a friends house but I never had a copy myself. I did love the wackiness of it all. Come to think about it, I did buy and download it on the Wii but have been too busy to play it :shakefist:

I wonder if the old cheat still works.

In the first level, the junkyard, you could enter a code on the controller and you'd hear the game go "Cheater!" in a sullen tone before skipping over that level and the space scene to reach the Hell-like Level 2, xD

It reminds me of the game Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet.

Really awesome dude. Colors are magnificent in this art, and the perspective really out there.

Most definitely not what I'm used to seeing you do :dummy: But it doesn't make it any less awesome. I love the rings and smaller details on the planet and within the rest of the picture. This really makes me feel like I am standing there watching this dark star....

Aw... that's heartbreaking... good on ya for the dedication. :huggle:
