So I thought I'd build my own concept for a campaign on Left 4 dead, just for fun. Anyone who hasn't played the game, basically there are 4 survivours in the middle of the zombie apocolypse, and you play different campaigns which play out like a horror movie. This is where you can find the posters for the 4 campaigns for the game so far: http://news.bigdownload.com/photos/l...sters/1159010/
I aimed to base my campaign in a jungle or swamp type place. I really don't know where to go from here. This is my first time I've tried to draw an environment aswell, even if it is on a smaller scale, so I realise it's crap . And I think i'm going to find it really hard to draw the characters with any kind of likeness. So any tips would be much appreciated,
Hey there! i admire your left 4 dead theme. If i were you, i'd change the focal point at the moment; I keep staring at the upper half rather than the characters below. this can be fixed by directing lighting and color. Id also suggest adding some complementary colors in there. use some jungle references. you're off to a really nice start here so don't get discouraged. And if you're worried about likeness, just use the references you have, take some screen shots from the promo trailers and take it slow. Like i said off to a good start!
Thanks saint-onge ! I'll get back to work on it soon and add more vibrant colours, although still keep a spooky element to it I think. And I understand what you mean about the composition.
