Under Burning Skies by BLPH Under Burning Skies by BLPH
Collaborative project between *freelancah and me! :D

It got dragged a bit (half a year or a bit more :p).... *freelancah gave me a beautiful volcano-render and I felt so free to paint over it. Then it went back and forth for minimal edits until we got this one here :D

Hope you like it! :)

By the way, you can get a wallpaper-pack by hitting the download-button. It contains the following sizes:
:bulletblue: 4:3 -- 2048x1536
:bulletblue: 16:9 -- 2560x1440
:bulletblue: 16:10 -- 2560x1600
Just scale it down if you need to ;)

Also, if you fav this one, please head over to his version here, too :)
He provides a Making Of as well. Check it out!


Facts......
- Original resolution: 5922x3620 (apparently, we cropped it at some point :p)
- Total working time: too much to count, really. freelancah started this back in... March, 2011 (?) or so... and quite a bit of our non-existing free time went onto this piece
- Final PSD-size: 904MB. Should've merged a little more often. Almost killed my computer, haha

Awesome scene, though I wouldn't want to be that close to it.

One can never be too close to something :p
It's just that, in some cases, one will have some serious problems getting back home xD

I love this but...

When a volcano blows, it'll knock down trees for miles around (not to mention anything in the sky) [link]

I am pretty sure this depends on multiple factors, such as the explosion strength and the location of the surroundings. We certainly saw the eruption quite a bit smaller than Mt. St. Helens ;)

love the smoke, looks amazing.
but i think the piece needs a little more sharpness:P
:+fav:
Reply
:iconblph:
BLPH Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012   Digital Artist
Thanks :)
Regarding the sharpness, we actually think it's looking good that way. We have been discussing tons and tons of stuff about this image and what you see there is the consent :p
I don't think that we'll ever want to change the way it looks, therefore we're too happy about how it is right now ;)

Good work :D The smoke is done really well, it has the dirty look to it we would expect it to have, and that highlighted bit near where the sun is coming through was a nice touch.

The birds are a good feature too - looks they're freaking out, lucky birds - they can just fly to safety :shakefist:

:iconblph:
BLPH Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012   Digital Artist
Hehe, thanks! :)

I am not quite sure if the birds' flying-ability (lol, that totally sounds like some RPG-skill :p) outweighs man's advantages. For example, the human is the only living being that is able to consume a hot meal during a flight ;p
Reply
:iconpriteeboy:
priteeboy Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol, but in order to have that flight we need to have a plane oh-so conveniently nearby in the case of emergency :lol:

And someone who knows how to fly it, those cockpit controls look as confusing as a space shuttle :faint:
