Daring Do - No Turning Back by Stalcry Daring Do - No Turning Back by Stalcry
I love Daring Do! So. So. Much!

I thought I would have more to say about this o-o but I'm drawing a blank.
Basically I wanted to make a picture of Daring Do inspired by concepts and environments from Uncharted, one of my absolute favorite games of all time. Also, I wanted to practice interior environments. I'm kind of suck at those.

It wasn't my aim to refine to full detail, just do a sketchy "Speed Paint"

Hope you enjoy!

Hello!

I sent you a PM but never got a response, so I thought I'd try on the picture itself. Anyways, in case you didn't see my message, I'm currently working on (and almost done) with a new Daring Do song of mine and I was wondering if I had your permission to use this as the cover art. If so, then you will most definitely receive all of the credit you deserve as the creator of said picture. Thank you very much in advance.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
~ Dewie

It actually reminds me of Tomb Raider: Underworld (Which was more of an action/adventure/puzzle game than Uncharted's over-the-shoulder shooting) Primarily cause of what appears to be a doppleganger in the distance. (Those who've played the game know what i'm referring to)

Now then, onto the important stuff. Most anything that can be critiqued on, (like all things) are a matter of taste and preference. I love this piece, the color and shade blend is smooth, and precise. I am however, rather partial to more well defined edges, with a sharper look to them. The use of color in this piece was also sort of a treat. It somewhat feels as though there are large, bio/chemiluminescent objects in the area that adds to the emerald green look, which gives it a somewhat mysterious appearance, since it is not a natural color. The cages are cool, and unique, which adds to the same thought process that it was once lived in by intelligent beings. (Maybe changelings?) If there is anything i would have thought might have made this picture 20% cooler, it would be an old photographer's trick: Framing. Having some vines, tubers, or even branches hanging down over the top of the image would have greatly added to the perspective (as though you were crouched in the bushes watching her) There was a great use of a similar trick by adding a "invisible path" that leads the eye from one portion of the picture to the other. This case being the waterway, to the crossed bridges, to the depths of the abyss. Awesome job, can't wait to see more.

Thank you very much and thank you for the critique :) Your advice is very good and helpful!

The pony in the distance was very inspired by the corrupted and devolved Nazis from Uncharted 1. Ill seriously have to play more Tomb Raider, haha.

Never played Uncharted, but this reminds me of the Dwarven ruins in Skyrim. There's even a Changeling (I believe?) instead of a Falmer. Great work!

Thanks :D
Yeah, its a changeling like creature :) Its actually based off of the
"slippery naked guys" from the first uncharted. Which are falmer like, and the way they got that way is similar to falmer
