The Raging Undead by Zephyri The Raging Undead by Zephyri
Of the 3 loading screen images I did, this one was my favourite, and the fastest and simplest to do. The small black and white thumbnail i did just set everything up perfectly, and from there is was just a case of adding detail and sharpening edges where I could. Kinda proud of the depth and colour scheme too. The scene shows Ariane squaring off against multiple enemies of the undead kind!

All in all a good image for me which took about 10 hours in total. All photoshop from scratch, and no refs, as I was painting on a single screen for most of this at the company's convention, Runefest! If you hunt through RF youtube vids, there might be a glimpse of me sat at the table painting.

Quick edit: I work for Jagex, as a senior concept artist on RS, so yes the work is mine! Also, you can now see this little lady in action against the undead in the new trailer for RS! My fellow colleagues have bust a gut to get this looking pro, and I think it looks awesome for something done in our existing tech!

Go take a peek! :heart: [link] :heart:

I remember watching you do a very small portion of this at the very first Runefest 2010. A truly amazing and mind blowing piece. How do you do pictures like this, they are incredible.

I remember the first time I saw this on dA, and that truly made me see what an amazing site it is. As an RS user myself, I was stunned by the brilliant new loader screens and wondered who had done them. And now I know!

Great depth! It reminds me of the Conan The Barbarian covers by Frank Frazetta! Great job!
