Before the Altar

This "painting" was virtually generated using a 3D rendering as basis. The render was created using iClone 5 and the paining was created by running that image through the Dynamic Auto Painter, which to a fair degree simulates the process of painting. I then worked on the image in photoshop to give it a distinctive aged feel.

The model used is not my own, but I have purchased the rights to use it royalty-free.

Feel free to use this in your game or other project. I have found it makes a neat background.

Do note that I am not deeply religious by any means and that I worked on this merely because I found the subject was very responsive to light and contrast work as well as the painting process. If you have a religious argument about this, I'm not the person to contact about it. :P


Excellent work, my good sir. I approve the choice of your scene.

samulis responds:

Thanks Bosa.

Um... why is his chest burning?

samulis responds:

lol... just bloom from the light... like a lens flare sort of thing. It gives a sort of aura.

Very distinct olden feel, yet still a little game-esque.

samulis responds:

that's probably just the vignette that is giving that vibe.
