ABOUT THE ART
This is my piece for Bloom Arts Festival 2012 over in the Philippines.
The idea I had for it was that this would be the cover for my videogame idea:
You’ve landed in the middle of a dark forest void of light with only your torch and a sword to make your way through it. It’s set in complete darkness so you only ever see what your torch shines upon. The forest has this crazy weird biology that makes everything just reflect and change color constantly in this beautiful psychedelic way. You encounter these animals that sort of blend into the dark as your enemies. You make your way through the dark forest looking for items that could help you find your way out.
I called it ‘Light’ because it’s the only thing keeping you alive, and yeah, the whole mechanic of it.
