SCOW: Suihira concept sketches by RianaLD SCOW: Suihira concept sketches by RianaLD
I'm starting to think these tumblr dumps are getting a little ugly on my dA front page so.

Back to uploading stuff on both places! O Riana u so indecisive~

Copypasta from my tumblr:
Have some more concept sketches. This is of “Suihira”, the mysterious ”city of water” (hence the title of my story, “Suihira: City of Water” 8U). It may not seem like much but on a planet where large bodies of water are basically nonexistent, it’s kinda a big deal. :U

This is heavily based on the Königssee in the German Alps (I’ve been there a couple times and homagad it’s amazing there). Here’s a picture. [link]

This is absolutely beautiful. Makes me feel tranquil looking at it... The cooling colours blend really well together - that hint of warmth keeps it earthy to balance the majestic of the greens and hues.

Thanks for taking me somewhere magical for a brief moment, concept sketches like these don't often come so keep up the awesome work RianaLD! :+fav:

Thanks for the compliment. :)

Don't get these comments too often so this made my day!

My pleasure RianaLD, I'm still at awe with that X-mas tribute video that contained a bundle of your sketches complimenting the story you and Steve created. Looking forward to more projects from you two in the future - and all the best makin' the big move to LA! *thumbs up*

The painting style is gorgeous too! ;o;
