Magdalene in the Garden

I finished this new personal piece this afternoon.  I’ve been wanting to do something inspired by Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights for a long time, and I finally got around to it!  Detail shots below:

Learning Blender

After telling myself for years that I’m going to do it, I’m finally teaching myself the basics of Blender 3D modeling.  My end goal is to speed up my process when drawing architectural backgrounds by blocking in the main forms in 3D.  Here’s my first attempt:

I made some sort of small chapel using mostly the Archimesh add-on.  Unfortunately, Blender kept crashing every time I try to render an image (for reasons I still haven’t worked out).  So my horrible kludgy solution was to screencap the camera view and paste that into Clip Studio.

I painted the lighting, details, etc over top of the screencap…

…Aaaannd here’s the finished product!

This background is part of a mockup for an RPG idea I have floating around in my head, so you’ll be seeing more of it in the near future!
