I’ve made this scene a few months ago, then got stuck with regard to what to put in the background and left it for a time.
I started working on it again today, added several trees in the background and then composited it with a background image in post.
I’m not sure if I’m happy with either the initial or final result, and would welcome any advice on how to make it as good as it can be.
Some info about the image:
The main object here is an Assyrian helmet (modeled based on historical image reference, with some futher ornamnetation added). The scene is supposed to have a mysterious fantasy / ancient history atmosphere. I didn’t have to much storytelling in mind when I first imagined the scene, but I guess it doesn’t hurt! especially with the obvious questions that come to mind: namely why the spear and helmet were abandoned and by whom. Not too sure what to do with that either and would love to hear some ideas in addition to the technical / artistic advice.
Thanks in advance!
