I’ve made one more illustration.
Inspired by the Conan films and Golden Axe video games I decided to give a try to the Sword and Sorcery theme.
I think I’m finally getting somewhere. My main focus was to keep everything clear and easy to read. To make it so I gave distinct colors for all the directions. Left comes yellow, right comes purple, top blue and bottom dark gray. Also the images gains saturation from background to foreground. In top of all that the perspective (a bit forced I know) reinforces the dept.
I’ve also tried to make distinct characters, with distinct colors so, the man barbarian is yellow, the cat is wine/grey, the wolf girl is pink and the dwarf girl is red/grey. I guess the cat and the dwarf are a bit similar chromatic wise, but I was afraid to break the overhaul mood.
