Stone Sentinel - created by blur

Stone Sentinel
Favs: 5SBS: 3Hi-resRank: 2/10Score: 71.5% (37)27435 views

This piece of art is my dedication to the nature itself because I love mountains and mystical creatures.

Techniques I’ve been used is a matte painting inside Adobe Photoshop and digital painting with PaintTool SAI. Lots of chops from the source image as well as textures to cover the Stone Sentinel’s body, dirt and manipulate the surroundings; all with my graphic tablets.

No external images required in the process.

Brush in Photoshop is required to clip masks the source image and Brush with paper texture in SAI is applied to summon the one and only Stone Sentinel with its dirt around the environment and the ‘Stone Sentinel Slayer’.

Hope you like my creation; because I had a lot of fun to complete this artworks.

Thanks for viewing (also to my WIP field) and have a great time! (5 years and 2144 days ago)

Thanks for nice comments, friends. It means a lot to me and I'll keep them coming for upcoming contest (if there's no problems to my current job) as well. Lots of great entries here, just wanna slip with my fantasy creatures imagination though. = )

Still have many details lost to my final result, still need a lot of improvements to the painting and compositing. Hope everyone like it. Have a great time!

IMO too much filter is used on the background and a lot of the detail disappeared. REALLY nice composition overall though and good use of source!

author says:

Thanks for the nice comments and FAV, friends. Really means a lot to me.

@Kid; you're mistaken. It's not filters I've been used for the background. It's a digital painting method with SAI Brush that has a textured like a paper (watercolor rough paper) and it's obviously to distract viewer's eyes into the main composition; the Golem and the Fat Boy. = )

Thanks once again and hope I'll improve my final artwork for the next time. Also have a great-great time, fellow artist.

Weird sense for a fantasy garden but I like it. The only thing I would corrected is the masking of the arm. Also, the brush around the arm does not fit with the image. Either get rid of it or use another, more detailed brush.

I agree. To me the brush detracts from the image.

author says:

guess my tired eyes failed to notice the horrible edges around the arm.. and the more i looked at it this morning the more the brush stroke bothered me too... thank you for your comments and input..

Great surrealism here...not much of a garden that I can see...but to each his own.

the frame is a little awkward author, it would look a lot better if you cropped out the outside of the picture

Nice idea but you it is hard to find birds on this pic, You probably could crop the part with birds and cut out and paste hand near the birdies... imho anyway good entry and good luck!
