Stranded - old by gucken Stranded - old by gucken
not really sure about the category, I hope it fits =)

used stocks are from pixelio.de
hardware: wacom intuos3 a5
time taken: approx. 4 hours
software: photoshop cs2, 3ds max9

original size: 5000x2813
download size: 1500x844

got some inspiration from heroes of might and magic 2 (cloud castle) =)


and look there, there's also some moonlike planetthing :o so, spaceart will never die in my gallery :D


needed to do some different things to clear my head



oh, and this submission is for an artworkbattle on damn-designs.de
the topic was "solitude" or something like that (einsamkeit)

so i thought, this concept would fit pretty nicely =)


any feedback is highly appreciated!

Cool idea and some wild editing.

"Stranded" - that title suggest an unwanted or dangerous situation. Yet the model's pose is stoic and she's dead center in the photo (the symmetry of the photo suggests calmness and peace).

Do you think this would have worked better if the model was somewhere closer to us and maybe not dead center?

I look at this pic and I think Going home, not Stranded.

Cheers.

BTW, love your gallery! ;)

ka, das ist wie heroes2, nur mit besserer grafik, mehr einheiten etc, und man kann halt seit dem 3. teil komplett alle einheiten, die man anheuern kann, ausnahmslos aufrüsten :D
sowas gabs vorher noch nie xD

außerdem gibts noch 3 verschiedene versionen von heroes 3

einmal das stinknormale (the restoration of erathia), das add-on (Armageddon's blade) und eine nochmal andere version, die kein add-on braucht (shadow of death)
alle 3 versionen haben eigenspezifische boni und unterscheiden sich jeweils von den anderen versionen in vielen aspekten :D
