Mindcrack UHC 11 - Eternal Sun by taraforest Mindcrack UHC 11 - Eternal Sun by taraforest
With the start of UHC 11, so does a new round of fan art.
Unfortunately this means having to drop my season 10 winner's piece for now and maybe going back to it in the future and just doing it as a team piece sometime.

The theme of Eternal Sun is something I find really interesting and I can't wait to see how this season plays out!
It also feels like the weather we've been having here lately.... So much sun...

I decided to start with just a basic/generic picture to start the season because other controversial events/issues have already been drawn and posted on the sub-reddit. Dramatic scenes aren't really something I enjoy doing so early on in the season.

Done in Paint Tool Sai with my Wacom Bamboo tablet
Time taken - 5 hours approx

Link to Reddit post which includes links to episode 1 - [link]

This image portrays the person you're subconsciously rooting for. So whoever you think of first. I automatically thought Kurt, sooooo let's hope the Iron Kurtain keeps up his awesomeness. :D

So cool! I really like the composition of it with the mobs in the caves :D

Wow thank you so much!

Somebody on the sub-reddit didn't like them and said it looked too much like a kid's book. It's interesting to see how opinions on devianrArt and reddit differ. Obviously people on deviantArt will have a better eye for composition etc but its still pretty cool.

Thanks again!
:D

Heh, actually I wanted to mention that because I saw those comments! I think it adds a lot to the overall effect of the picture - it's very evocative of UHC for me, and especially so with this season with how the mobs don't have a chance to spawn on the surface :)

Haha, thank you!
Yup, it's already been so dangerous for players who have been caving so I just wanted to express that in my piece.
:D

This makes it look so epic!
Hmm I wonder who that is hanging by the temple, is that kurt and MCgamer watching? Or not suppose to be anyone? ;)
Love the painterly-ness of this piece, paint SAI is the best program for that :heart:

Thanks, I hope it'll be an epic season with even more awesome stuff to draw.

It was supposed to just be a 'generic' player nobody in particular but I drew a desert and a player, the temple was an after-thought inspired by episode one. ;)
Yes, the brush is so much fun to use for mixing colours!

I'm sure it we won't be disappointed!! I'm challenging myself to only watching one perspective except I watched a few first episode o.o

Couldn't believe how lucky kurt got that MC wasn't looking for conflict!

SAI is sooo much better in that respect in comparison to photoshop :)

Wow, that's going to be difficult. It was so late here and I just had to watch more and more. xD

Yep thank goodness he made the Iron chestplate, that really put MC off.

The lines are so much smoother too. The stabiliser is my best friend sometimes!
:D

This season so far has already been awesome! I just feel bad about all the people who died in the beginning xd people spawning too close together.

Yeah! I wish photoshop at least had a stabiliser. That's when I usually use illustrator if I need lineart done digitally.
