Final Submission!


Story: The Skeleton Lake

Forbidden truth written in Indian hieroglyphs behind the ancestral  throne stone. When uncovered by a legendary linguist, on King's demand, brought sudden death to the Giant King and all of his courtiers. Turning their flesh to dust leaving behind just their skeletons. 

Couldn't help making few additions.. It was all worth it. Image now feels better in consistency and story.
Hope you like it :)

Last update before the final image. I went on with the 6th thumbnail. It felt a bit grand and more immersive. Althouth I made changes in comparison to the thumbnail. The gate felt bit too boring for me so thought maybe I'll try to add more story it the image and hence this is where the image is now. Done with the 3d base. I pushed it too far in 3d itself. I felt it will be faster and will give much better final result. 
Next is paintover, I have a lot in mind for this stage to push it even further. Let see how it goes. 
Wish me luck :)
Also let me know which version you like better.

Here are some B/W comps I made based on my idea and mood board.

Next, based on the ones I like the most I will start making a 3d base fleshing out the architecture.

Let me know which ones you like the most. Help me choose :)

Mood Board

The Idea: In a cursed village in glacier of India. Every year as the ice melts in a glacial lake located in that town, hundreds of human skeletons are seen floating. Rediscovered by a forest ranger.

Below are the images that I found interesting and depict the feel for my idea. Every image has something that I would like to incorporate into my piece.

Next stage would be B/W thumbnails. Be sure to check those out.
