Stranded on the mountains

Author Comments

This is the piece that I just handed today (May 11th, 2010). It's a mix between matte painting and an illustration. Some elements are 100% photographic and some are 100% painted, and others are a mix. The aim of these project was to create an environment with a stranded person to show scale. All photos were taken by me at Peggy's cove and the Swiss air memorial in Nova Scotia, Canada.

looks shopped!

I am speechless! good thing that doesn't affect my typing abilities!
How long did this monster take to create? (Also, how big is it, and do you still have i?)

Thanks Havegum. I started out as a pure matte painting and it was ridiculously huge, I can't remember the dimensions since I lost that version but it was a 3GB file. After that I scaled it down to the required dimensions of 5100x2700 pixels and added the painted elements. I scaled it down further for Newgrounds a bit smaller than 1080p. I had 4 weeks to complete this project, although with the 6 other art courses I didn't have all that time to work on it although I'm happy with the results. I have version 4 to 20 of this file.


Wow, it's beautiful

It's amazing Mischie, absolutely splendid.
I love it!
