Discworld by Joshi38 Discworld by Joshi38
Yes, I've already done a Discworld picture, but while that was an abysmally crappy photomanip (that just so happens to be my most popular piece... go figure), this is a full digital painting.

I figured I'd gotten to a point where I could actually digitally paint the Great A'Tuin and actually do it justice, so I gave it a try.

Enjoy.

Love it. The perspective on the elephant on the right looks a bit off though...
Still great :) You do indeed to Great A'Tuin justice.

Yeah, I was never really pleased with any of the elephants. If I were to do this again today, I'd likely spend a bit more time on them. Thanks for the kind comment. :)

Seriously brilliant! Wonderful shading and lighting!
I like how you can just see the tusks of the elephants poking out from under the disworld.

I love this one....you might have notice with my favorite-ing it. I also used it in my meme, I did credit you. LOL, until my scanner gets working I can't actually put much of my own work up. I hope you don't mind me using it, if you do I will make changes.

I always liked the idea, that in reading terry pratchet's novels, you belonged to an exclusive club, of which everyone could be a member. Someone said that to pratchet, and it is so true :)

Ah, the magnitude of the Great A'Tuin before me. You've indeed done justice to it for this piece made me feel small.
