Under the Old Sky

This was my entry for the Blue Canvas "New Beginnings" competition.

In a post-apocalyptic era, pollution and global warming have torn the earth to pieces. Mankind rebuilds civilization as an agricultural community. He humbles himself to the destructive power of mother nature and cherishes the earth as his ancestors once did. A new beginning but an old tradition.

This piece is definitely my most technically proficient digital illustration to date. It took me about 1 month to grab a good concept and composition - that's with teacher guidance. After I did a fully detailed line drawing, it took me another 50 or so hours to actually render it.

This probably isn't the most exciting piece of art - but I'm really satisfied with the way I used reference and layers to get a really clean look. I'm pretty happy with that.


  1. hey chris, it's been a while, but i think this piece is amazing! its awesome to see how much you've grown as an artist since high school. good luck!
