The final piece done from a collection of
Background and Layout designs. These
pieces focused more toward Game
Art Design and Animation. It’s another
illustrative piece that I feel my skills can
The premise of this illustration was to focus on any layout we desired, it could be from a game, story, movie, real life, or our imagination. I chose to illustrate my interpretation of an area called Meteor Falls in one of the Pokémon series games.
I focused my attention to the detail and lightening used in the most recent games. The light blue coming from the water and the yellow color of the rock are just examples of how this is implemented.
I based the area on a real-life location of the entrance at the caves in Inks Lake, Texas. I needed a real light source and based that into this work.
The completed product of Meteor Falls from the Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Alpha Sapphire, and Omega Ruby games.
A black and white look of the finished piece to give a sense of depth and value with no color.
The detailed line work of the piece before adding a painted digital style, some details were not included in the final.
A GIF playing through the various stages in the development of this piece.
An unused thumbnail of another area from the same games.
A dutch-tilt of the Meteor Falls area looking from the bridge.
The thumbnail that I went with, it best features most of the features and details of the area
