What a joy it was to see the last adjustments made to this piece. This is by far the most I have concepted for an environment piece, and the most rewarding to conclude. I had to ask and answer, "who are these people, why are they isolated from the greater population, what type of technology do they employ in their daily affairs, are they peaceful or aggressive, do giant lizards live with them (yes!), what do they value, what are their religious beliefs, are they vegetarian (thank you Mr. Buffington) and on and on.. and to me, that research, where you get to delve into everything from National Geographic to Frank Lloyd Wright to John Carter of Mars (and thus, Ryan Church, that concept art book is beautiful), thats where the gravy is. Enjoy the piece. Take care.
