Artist Comment

I got this idea while looking through a 3D Studio Max guidebook. The basic idea was to make a reconstruction of the lighthouse in the first Silent Hill game. So I asked my friend nixan to make a stairway I saw in the book. At the time he was working on a fire-effect which he showed me. I then evolved the idea and used a customized vesion of the effect. In the end, it doesn't look like the lighthouse at all, but I'm still happy with the results :)

This is how the wallpaper should have looked like, but I thought that it didn't look quite right......can't put my finger on what it was........... XD

Anyways....here comes the technical details:
Time spent: 2 weeks
Layers: 93
Stock photos used: Roman Fort remains
Scansource: Silent Hill 3 Press release-material disc (will post scans soon ^^)
Thanks to: nixan for the stairway and tips on brushes and colour-balancing.

    There are very few occasions where I say anything relevant to this but..

    I find it to be quite fantastic. Quite evidently, all that work, time, and effort has paid off and greatly at that. A favorite this shall be.

    Only one favorite? I think somehing is wrong with that. +fav from me, cause this just plain rocks.

    The fire, the stairway, the stock photo, and the brushing. All godly if you ask me.
