The Fall of Color-dolin...
Not one of my wittier titles, to be sure...
No technicolor today, folks. As I've decided to start including some rather involved backgrounds to my work, it was time to get back to basics, so, cue tonal sketches!
Starting with the four primary tones (darkest, dark grey, light grey, lightest), I did some thumbs, picked one, and sketched away...
...which ended in this rather solemn piece (zoom in to the figures for added ambiance). Hmmm...looking at it now, I'm getting a distinct Tolkien vibe as this reminds me of the Fall of Gondolin.
Might be worth exploring further...?
Edit: Posted a slightly revised version: decided to make the midground a lake!
