Yorktown by RadoJavor Yorktown by RadoJavor
My latest work for the game Empire. Its just my artistic vision of the Yorktown siege at the end of the Indipedence war. The picture is a little bit patriotic which is not a bad thing, especially on the thanksgiving weekend:)
I used a more colours as usually, the picture shall be somehow optimistic, from American point of view at least . I would like to see your opinion about it. The characters were still a pain to do for me, but its gettin better I hope.
The whole thing was done in some 30-40 hours, just photoshop and intuos tablet.

It's great to see who is the artist behind the game (yes, I have played and it's good) cause I'm allways thinking who did this or that etc. Great work

whenever you paint a flag, it's amazing- you seem to have this instinct for putting tears in just the right places and lighting to make it tell a story.

love love love!

I think this one is my favourite. The urgency and the lighting combines to make this one a very nice piece. I also like the attention to historical detail, very nice!

I just cant believe how many pieces you have done! It blows my mind how quickly you finish things! I have been working on some of my pieces for like 3 months now! Better yet, 2 of them have been over a year (laziness!). Any way, keep it up!!!

Aaaah, nothing gets me more than a waving American flag in a painting like this. Beautiful, and definitely uplifting for me. :)
I absolutely love it all, though I think the man pointing seems to need a little more shading to lengthen the look of his arm a little.

That setting looks bizzare to me. It could be just because I am not used to the setting of the war, but it looks surreal, which is kind of cool, you know?

It looks flat in some places, but your lighting can't really be argued with at all. That's my C&C, ladies and gentlemen! ^^
