Mysterious Island by priteeboy Mysterious Island by priteeboy
Well it's been exactly one month since I last submitted anything :stare: Guess it isn't helped by the fact I'm become sluggish and am also juggling a couple of commissions too. This one took quite a while (mostly to blame on modelling the distant ruins) I finished it like - a month after even seeing the movie that inspired it :lol:

I'm a sucker for pretty scenery in movies so I enjoyed Journey 2 the Mysterious Island even though I'm sure many would say it's kinda stupid, but sometimes when it comes to movies you just gotta forget realism and immerse yourself in the bizarre fantasy, and I thought the landscapes and concept of the island was really cool and it took me back to the days when I was a kid and I would draw up equally crazy lands as adventure playgrounds :la:

Some background info to avoid confusion for some people - the strangest thing about life on the island is that big and small are reversed, lizards and insects are massive, an elephant or shark is tiny (I can't say I'd be a fan of giant lizards and bugs trying to kill me, but who wouldn't want an elephant the size of a dog, or a shark you could keep in a fishbowl? :eager:) The ruins are the lost city of Atlantis (at least if I remember correctly) The island is in a very active area and has a habit of sinking and resurfacing, which would explain such a dramatic landscape :omg:

Created in Vue 7 and Photoshop as usual.

Could we get a version without the watermark to use as wallpaper?

I suppose I could e-mail a version, but only up to a certain size.

That'd be nice.

I'm gonna need an e-mail then (sorry it took so long, my internet unexpectedly cut out for 5 days :frustrated:)

It could be a landscape invented for King-Kong

I did like the scenery in that movie :) Though it was too long for a movie by my standards. Always make sure you pee before watching it :lol:

The ruins in the background was a very nice touch - adds a minor focal point to it, but more to showcase the wild, jungle-like rock formations around it more. Very nice!
