Lost Colony by RadoJavor Lost Colony by RadoJavor
As promised second halloween picture. Today is a special day and I just finished this picture. Inspiration was the first english settlement in America by end of 16th century, the Roanoke colony. About 100 people were left on small island as a permanent settlement. After 3 years the supply expedition didnt find anybody and no clue what happened. The moment when the explorers are searching for the people is very interesting and scarry, so I paint it.

Done in photoshop in some 20 hours

Happy halloween

From what I learned; it was a mix between: famine, brought upon by a shortage of supplies leading to poor harvests, with the raiding by natives serving as the finishing blow to the colony.

The Lost Colony always intrigued me when I first read about it in school. To have all the men, women, and children disappear without a trace leaving only their mark "Croatoan". Their are theory's, but no actual proof of what really happened. We could only guess how frightening the situations must have been for the expedition team.
