Fresh air!

On my lunch break at work I went outside to paint a little bit in the sun.

Interior Environment Painting

For this Interior Environment painting we had to recreate an environment from an existing fantasy world. I chose to do the cathedral in Blizzard's upcoming game Diablo 3. I used the game's reveal trailer as reference for my painting to recreate this cool cinematic shot. Can't wait for the game to come out!

I just love the colours and shapes used in her digital painting, and figured I'd give it a shot. I did my best, and here's the results:
