Mountains Everyday

Working at painting and posting every day. Hopefully will get to the point where I am writing blog posts and building up my portfolio with images I have worked and reworked.

I like the sketch for this one. It started with the idea of a person stumbling on a way out of a tunnel that one had been stuck in for a while. I imagined the sun going down and even though everything is starting to become dark and somber, it has a vibrant contrast with the harsh dark inside of the cave. I eventually added a city that is partially inspired by Corciano in Italy and also fortress construction in Dwarf Fortress. I have been toying with the idea of multi storied city, where the lower cities act as an entrance to the higher up cities, which have no access to the outside world except through the lower cities.
