Midnight Invasion by EmilisB Midnight Invasion by EmilisB
Been working on and off on this one for the past ~3 nights. I think it turned out pretty cool in the end, but I wish I hadn't gotten caught in the cliche orange/blue colour scheme at the start. Tried to liven it up with some red hues and hopefully it worked. Those two massive dudes are giants, just in case someone is getting confused about the scale.

The battle is taking place in fictional ancient China, although at the start it was gonna be more modern in terms of weaponry, but I ended up scrapping the rifles and using spears instead, just to make the theme less confusing.

Here's the timelapse video of the painting process. I forgot to click film after taking breaks a few times, so it skips ahead a few times, but I got most of it. [link]

Great detail and action going on here. You did a great job reflecting the light from the fires off of different objects as well as the moon light. Good job!

Awesome. Bonus points for the setting being inspired by the ancient China, rather than the typical medieval Europe you see in so many fantasy works!

Incredible & artistically inspiring. My only thing is I wish I could view it on a larger scale as I don't feel I'm getting the full benefit of the detail. Yet I do see the point of protecting ones work too.
