Tank Graveyard

Hi there,

Here's another story illustration for the project. I wanted to work on something that used a limited palette and had soft, diffuse lighting. I promise this will be last pic with tanks in for a while!

I've got some creature stuff on the go so hopefully I'll have something to show for that pretty soon.

Great work Carver. I like that cyan greenish mood, it's cold and match very well with the scene! Love how you do the footprints and the branches direct the eyes to the characters! Awesome.

Nick Carver said...

Cheers guys!

Laughing Ferret: Thanks - that's very kind of you!

Gio M.: Thanks muchly! You have some great stuff in your portfolio!

Da Masta Cheef: Don't worry - the tanks (and lots of other vehicles) will return! I just need to focus on other areas for a while.

Estevao: Hey, how's it going! The things you mentioned were all elements I was trying to push. I'm really glad that it came across as intended.
