edit: cropped for a better composition and added a bit more lighting details.
This turned out to be quite different than usual. This was thought to be a beautiful landscape scene of a wonderful waterfall filled with a thick forest. Then I started thinking too much, how it looked simple and how bad ass it would look if I added more meaning to the whole concept. So I figured I’d add one of my soldiers scouting the top of the waterfall. Afterward I added the bunkers (or whatever you want them to be). After that, it all just went uphill. The top of the waterfall wasn’t supposed to be infested but I as always, experimenting, put down a tad bit of pink on a multiplied layer and thought the color looked pretty well on the canvas.
So the story behind this concept is basically a recon mission. The elite soldier on the bottom right has a mission to scout the area they lost contact to. He’s to investigate and fin any clues to the disappearance of his comrades and the civilians in that area.
