A different work here.

It was really interesting to wonder how could a game like Lemmings could look more natural, cause its background concept is kinda special after all. But it was the opportunity to have a great mood, and i hope fans of this old game wil like it !

I also went for a "speed paiting", concept art render this time, more than ever ! But don't be fooled, it's matte painting to begin with :)

Full view is advised of course.

This picture is quite impressive for sure, even the colors are harmonising each other well. But I think that the ground is a little bit blurry with less structure. The convertion of a 2D into a 3D perspective is hard for sure, but the hole that the one lemming is digging looks more like a fosse than a tunnel in my eyes. Maybe the image looks a little bit too saturated and the concrast can be a little bit stronger. Nethertheless it's still a pretty picture and the lighting is beautifull too. I'm afraid that I can't paint such a picture half as good as you've done it. ^^'
What do you think?

Yay! Lemmings are one of my childhood games. You should do some Heroes or Sim City 2000 now. ;)
TwilightSheikah Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2010
I love the blending, as well as the use of black. It really draws your focus to the beginning and the end.
sakurakira Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2010

..and I do! Well Done!
Ankki Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2009
Okay, now, I hardly ever find any Lemmings fan art impressive since I've been a big fan of the game since I was 9 or so and now I am 22, I guess I'm expecting a lot and usually fan art just doesn't catch the feeling of the original game. However this one does and goes beyond! I just adore this piece, every detail on it, the lights and the dark shadows. The contrast between the innocent, helpless little lemmings and the ominous athmosphere gives me the chills. If you don't mind I'm gonna use this as my PC wallpaper. Just awesome picture!!

Absurd-supernovA Featured By Owner May 17, 2009
I love lemmings.. the game of my childhood. Can you make 1024x768 version? The wide screen format looks strange when I put it on my 4:3 desktop...
Solarisphere Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
I couldn't figure out how to get past this one level in Lemmings... it was a fun game though.

And I'm surprised you know what speleology means. Not many people do.
Orioto Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Lol, well in france we do know some words^^
Solarisphere Featured By Owner May 18, 2009
Does everyone in France speak fluent English? One of my friends is flying to Paris in a couple days from now.
Orioto Featured By Owner May 18, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I speak fluent english with bad grammar^^ ut yes, french speaks english in theory, young ones at least !
Solarisphere Featured By Owner May 18, 2009
If you think your grammar is bad, you clearly haven't explored the internet.

Wow...dude, this is wonderful. At the small size I couldn't tell what it was exactly and then the full view.....damn! I like it...
daimwn Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2009
It is certainly another winner. Although it took me a while before I understood which game it was. I'd probly emphasis on a longer line of lemmings or higher contrast for pop.
JonFreeman Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2009   Digital Artist
"Let's go!" :)

very cool style here!
mikepalomino Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2009
