Ruins of Liurisch by Taylor-payton Ruins of Liurisch by Taylor-payton
Personal Work - Portfolio

Really stretched my abilities to make this one happen, I'm glad I did. I'm putting it to rest for now in favor of client work, but it taught me quite bit. I had a lot of Jaime Jones Reference.

Beautiful piece, reminds me of the type of tone and environment you might see in a dark souls game

thanks for introducing me to Jaime Jones too, very cool stuff

Thanks! Dark Souls and Demon's souls have been really inspirational to me.

Also, It's my pleasure to get someone else juiced on Jaime Jones-- his stuff is designed and drafted so masterfully.

Looks awesome. Kinda looks like an oil painting. Reminds me a bit of that Amalur-game I never finished.

Ha, thanks! I've heard good things about Kindoms of Amalur, but with all of the amazing games I can only find time to play a few. Still very much anticipating Dark Souls 2.

Oh yes, it is a perfectly awesome game. It is also probably the longest, most content-rich single-player game I have ever played in my life, so when I realised I needed at least a solid week to beat it, I decided to wait until I had the time.
Which was a year ago.

I own Dark Souls myself, and played as some kind of monk. When I got to some kind of mountain area after escaping a prison, my enemies started pushing me off ledges left and right, and I kinda decided that it wasn't worth it.

But I have seen pictures of Gravelord Nito, so maybe it is worth it just to see him in person.

Ah, I may have to pick up a used copy. My insatiable hunger for fantasy games packed with copious content is ever-growing. I don't take your reviews or taste lightly, either.

Haha, Nito is amazing as a character! I wish fist-based stuff was more viable, as it's my tendency in almost every character-building game next to spell-wielding. It is in fact a very frustrating game, but the rewards once you begin to bridge the skill gap can be very addictive.

Much appreciated! I can't wait for Dark souls II! I'm putting in extra work so I don't feel bad about drawing less when it comes out XD.

Very nice. I like how you drew the vegetation and the contrast between light and shade are very good.
