Aveyond II by Saimain Aveyond II by Saimain
A painting commissioned by Amaranth Games for their "Aveyond II" title. The glowing ball in the girl's hands is a song-sphere, kinda like the magical equivalent of an iPod, I suppose. XD

This was always my favourite Aveyond cover (tied with the Darkthrop Prophecy cover) and I was so excited to have found the original artwork:) Absolutely amazing work, I love this picture!!

Awesome cover from an awesome game.
Remind me how much I stuck when I play this when I'm still, like, 7, I was stuck, suppose to go to Thais with Rye, but instead to the snowy place thingy with super over powered wolves.

THE NOSTALGIA.

I was wondering what brush you used for the leaves?
Reply
:iconsaimain:
Saimain Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011  Professional General Artist
The leaves are all hand-painted, I don't have any custom brushes. I use the old Photoshop 5.5 version--I'm just too overwhelmed by all the options in the newer ones. I like to keep things simple, just a canvas and standard brushes. It takes a long, long time to complete paintings, but that's the only way I know how. :)

Normally, I'm too lazy to comment but this is..... WOW.

The details are simply amazing to the point where it's perfect. It's as if you poured your heart and soul into the painting with every stroke of the brush, and the emotions are captured in a timeless abyss. The background, the scenery, enchants the painting all the more. The characters; their way of dress, their posture and expressions are perfect. The mixture, blend and contrast of the colours are brilliantly beautiful. The shadowed castle with a fog of mist surrounding it is a perfect contrast to the bright green scenery and characters. The sky is beautifully painted with a perfect blend of clouds.

Simply put, this is perfection. And that's the highest praise I can offer.

Hugs~
