Glance of the dark


Felt like drawing something a bit spooky this time. It’s the concept art for the horror game I would like to make one day. The idea was to make it look uncomfortable, so the person who’s looking at the artwork will get the feeling of not wanting to enter the rail tunnel. But at the same time I wanted it to be mysterious and make the viewer curious about what’s inside that tunnel.

Very Cool!!!

DUDE this totally reminds me of that one inde game I think it was called the station you play a conductor in a post-apocalyptic world finding supplies, survivors, and fighting shadows like in your art white eyes and all its uncanny man!

Final station you mean? It's a great game, I was watching a playthrough a long time ago :) Thank you!

This is so cool, and so very well made too! I almost don't even know where to begin. You did great with all of the smaller details, such as the dirt and grass in the foreground, the textures on the wall, and the dust in the tunnel itself. The lighting here is also impeccable- it keeps a good consistency and actually feels warm to look at, especially on the ground near the caution sign. I also really like how the lighting takes what exists outside of this piece into consideration- for example, how certain brighter areas on the ground could easily line up with light shining through the leaves of the trees above.
Something about the angle of the blue pipes seems a bit off, but it's not distracting from the rest of the piece. Overall, fantastic work!

Sabretooth2611 responds:

Thank you so much for your review, it helps me a lot to improve. Yeah, I was fighting with those pipes for like an hour or two and then gave up XD

reminds me of the entrance in chihiro looks cool.

Sabretooth2611 responds:

Spirited Away you mean? Haven't thought of it until you said it hahah it actually does a bit.

If I run in blindly do I at least get chicken nuggets? I'll risk shadow monsters for the nugs.

Sabretooth2611 responds:

Oh yeah, maybe like 5 lbs of chicken nuggets XD
