Epilogue

I never seem to know when things are finished. It's gotten to the point that it's finished when I can't focus any more. Seemed like a fitting title for more than a few reasons, time to move on.



This one is a bit of a cousin to the last as you may see in the Process PSD below;

It might be a bit too dark in some of the stages; I worked on this one on a few different computers. Hope you enjoy!

  1. very epic and very nice! love the saturation in the darkness. really makes it feel other-worldly and more claustrophobic (imo).

    i cant help but wish there was something coming out of the background/"hall". :p
