Couple of years ago, for a wonderful client. I probably could make this parallax scroll but it'd become 24 megabytes again.

I'm enjoying the choice of colors you used for this, such as the purple color for the shading and shadows.

user

The textures! The contrast! Goddamnit, Helm, this is really enjoyable to look at! I don't understand how you are able to do this...

that mountain is hngg


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 2/23/2015 15:18

Hmmm, the image is precisely the right width to fill two dual 1920px monitors once blown up to 300%, whatever shall I do with this . . . hmmmmm


user
ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/23/2015 08:54

Hah, that's true. The colours are quite Van Gogh actually.


user
Mirage (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 2/22/2015 14:15

Very nice, Helm. Reminds me of Van Gogh a little bit, and that's a compliment. 


user
Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/21/2015 17:07

That palette is lovely. The pale green land in the far back is especially nice.


user
Shackhal (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 20:26

I love this background!! So high detailed! Awesome!


user
Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/20/2015 18:58

reminds me of a wine-growsery in france or something, plantation :) love the right hut especially aswell as the tree


user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 2/20/2015 15:25

Damn yo, tons of great stuff to look at, love that tree, the mountain, the layer right before the mountains the wood on those houses.


user
Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/20/2015 13:24

Dang helm! awesome. My first thought was definitely about the purple, but dang dude you got some really rich colors to work quite well.


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 13:04

Sadly the project seems to be on indefinite hold.


user
Scarodactyl (Level 8 Marshal) @ 2/20/2015 10:59

Is there a game out there with these graphics in it?  Because I would very much like to play that game.


user
Zadaben (Level 1 Thug) @ 2/20/2015 10:43

I really really love this, the colors are amazing, as many have pointed out. My one critique would be the barrels that are just sort of slapped in there, in the full image the two in the grass appear to just be floating there. I would reccomend giving them a shadow or something so they look mroe grounded. Really wonderful work though, I am in awe of those hills.


user
Super17 (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/20/2015 10:06

Really great, I don't add favorites very often, but this is definitely worth a spot in my collection. Some nitpicks here and there (e. g. same looking clouds with harsh cropping), but I'm totaly fine with that since it's a game asset.


user
EdJr (Level 8 Shodan) @ 2/20/2015 09:11

Holy cow, that's some art.

Amazing <3 <3 <3

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 08:21

Manupix, btw, the left house is 1point perspective because it's a modular tileset that can build more farmhouses. The one on the right is a stamp because it's unique.


user
dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 2/20/2015 08:14

The whole thing is even better.  Nice tree.


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 07:41

This isn't the space to go into too much detail but since a few people are asking about color selection, look at this

http://www.locustleaves.com/farmland_variations.png

I spend *a lot of time* after I've made some initial hue choices in photoshop, messing with 'color balance' making really minute changes to every color for every channel, seeing if something looks a bit better with more cyan, more purple, whatever.

The reason I do this is because I've trained myself badly for 10 years with too much grey, so I ended up with a lot of very muddy pictures. When you add color via color balance, it will tint every grey in the direction you added the color towards. So it's an efficient way for me to reign in all the fanciful hue shift reflexes I have by pulling the whole thing in one direction.

In addition, if you're enjoying the summer feel of the picture, that's also the result of color balance, in that when you add certain bright colors to an already bright image you get to very carefully overexpose it, it has something of a 'bloom' feel to it. I've done this many times since, but not on artwork I've gotten to show off. 

So although I can't tell you how to pick colors, I will tell you that messing with overall color balance is a big part of my process.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 07:34

Thanks for the kind words, everybody.

dpixel, I agree that purple is too fanciful for the piece, but this is old, I'd rather not retouch it.

BTW, click on the image to see the whole thing

Really like the intermediate background(right before the mountains).  The purple shadow seems a bit too purple, but still works.  Very nice.


user
ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/20/2015 05:04

Nice to finally see this on here. Loving it.


user
Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 2/20/2015 04:55

Argh, this makes the wait for summer even harder!

A brilliant display of your legendary skill. Perfect, except from that what |||| said about those barrels.


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/20/2015 04:50

I want to live there

Nitpicks: the left side house 1-point perspective conflicts with the other house 2-pt persp; also floating barrels.


user
ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/20/2015 04:21

Great colors. Looks a bit like a van Gogh painting.
Also--This was a great time to have that new PJ addon that allows you to scroll to see the whole image.

Awesomeness...would love to see the full length image, that tree in the preview looks awesome too.


user
Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 2/20/2015 02:08

Wow.... o.o

Really awesome.


user
skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/20/2015 01:55

I don't understand how you know which colours to pick :( 

This looks wonderful!


user
scottiand (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 01:25

Wow! Simply beautiful!


user
Emperor_Pixel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/19/2015 23:17

I really wish I could unveil the secrets behind your technique, or watch you doing something like this in real time.

Very beautiful.
 


user
_32_ (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/19/2015 23:14

Gorgeous. I'll never get tired of the way you throw hues around.


user
|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 2/19/2015 22:52

Damn that looks good! The tree's a thing of beauty.

Should not the two barrels have shadow too though?


user
Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/19/2015 22:44

The end assets for this set are about 3 times as long as this particular crop.
