Today I finished my Underwater environment concept art piece that I mentioned in my last post. It's a lot more detailed than the work-in-progress version and has taken me roughly 8-10 hours to finish. It's my first ever finished Photoshop concept art (which is shameful seeing as I'm in my 2nd year as a Games student) so I'm pretty happy with it and I think now that I've done one, the idea doesn't seem quite as intimidating. I'll definitely be doing more in the future.
Here's the previous version that I posted recently, for reference.
A lot of changes have been made in the final version, here's a quick list:
- Added plantlife and fish/animals (including sharks!)
- Added highlights in areas where the light is hitting the landscape
- Increased the intensity of the blue overlay to give more of an underwater effect
- Tilted the ship very slightly
Here's the final version:
