I only saw this competition with a few days left, but was really excited by creating something candy themed. I wanted to produce a fairly large scale environment surrounding the sweet 'Candy Kittens' , as a concept artist I didn't want to just do a study of a sweet. So I opted to create a Candy Kittens Kingdom. I did some initial sketches, using French castles as the inspiration. And decided to move onto an environment blockout fairly quickly.
Final environment concept
I learnt/used blenders landscape tool to speed up the workflow of my environment. Once I was happy with a block-out I then took a render into photoshop and proceeded to produce my environment concept.
