I have been working on a couple of restorations for a while and thought I would shake things up a bit and attempt to destroy one. I didn't want to destroy someone else's photo so I decided to use a screen shot from the Elder Scrolls game Skyrim.
This is my character, a Dark Brotherhood assassin sitting on his horse Shadowmere. It is a nice sunny day and in the distance is the town of Whiterun. There is also a dead wolf to the left hand side.
This scene was too nice. The character is supposed to be an assassin and looks like he is looking for a nice picnic spot. There should be death and destruction all around not sandwiches and a gingham table cloth.
I used a number of actions to create the fire and clouds along with a number of smoke textures from the SLR Lounge Smoke texture pack. The image was then darkened to get away from the 'Sound of music' vibe to create a more death and decay look.
If I can do this with a static shot from a computer game I hope to create something with a live action model soon.
