From Legend to Myth
By metaly 10-22-2010 08:08 PM
Finally finished these paintings last week! It's the Vic Viper and a partial complement of options from Gradius III. They've been a long time and several rolls of masking tape in the making and I'm happy with how they turned out.
Here's a small gallery with a few finished shots and images of the process:
At several points I considered adding more elements, like a star field (You can see stars planned on the grid in one of the photos.) or the powerup bar running along one of the canvas's bottom edge (facing the floor). After removing all the tape and looking at these, though, I think I like the minimalist look better.
I haven't decided on a title for it yet, but now I'm leaning towards "From Legend to Myth," which is Gradius III's Japanese subtitle. I always liked how lofty and pretentious it sounded for a shooting game.
