This is a promotional artwork I did for a medieval survival game called Pioneer-The New World. I am very much influenced by the artists of Guild Wars 2 like Daniel Dociu, Thomas Scholes, Richard Anderson. This image is inspired by the artstyle of Guild Wars 2. I achieved this by experimenting with layer blending modes and not being afraid of happy accidents. For textures I often reuse parts of old artworks and distorting them to find cool effects.
I actually tried to give it a touch of graphic design too, by putting in a white background as a negative space and vibrant colour combinations.
