this is sooo far the background I worked on the most.
I've had this scene in mind since a long time, and at last i'm submitting it all finished !
i wanted to design the Temple of Upleas since a long time too, and i'm glad of the result. It's not that much decorated nor colored (only white stone) it's because the temple is digged right in the stone (kind of cliff, same thing apparently, but there's no sea around, there's no ocean on Upleas), so there's no window except those we can see behind the just-married couple (and also on the ceiling but we can't see it from here)
also, as the ruby-red color symbolize the queen, the white of the stone is the contrast with that color, showing that nothing else is important on Upleas than its Queen.
In another hand, the paving is different. It's because each queen of Upleas choose the paving of the Temple. Queen Zéninuma always wears green and copper-brown, she likes those colors.
Finally, the two largest stained glass represent the actual Queen (on the right - Zéninuma) and the future Queen (on the left - Zélée).
When Zélée will be crowned and when her girl will be 15 years old, her portrait will go on the right, Zéninuma's will be removed and Zélée's daughter portrait will appear on the left.
Guess that's enough for the Uplean culture lesson, isn't it ?
I know there must be many, manyyy perspective mistakes, but for this one, i don't care, it was a first challenge and i'm glad of the final result
But you can notice them to me in your comments, i won't correct them here, but i'll keep your advices for the eventually next pics ^^
i also make the pic in a wallpaper-size if somes are interested
Okéééé alors comme tu m'as demandé pour la perspective je dirais d'abord que c'est un joli dessin, et que j'admire la patience dont tu as dû faire preuve pour le réaliser (non mais j'viens pas que pour casser moi lol)
...et que c'est les balcons qui me dérangent le plus! Tu aurais peut-être dû les dessiner plus à l'horizontale puisque le spectateur (là d'où est vue la scène) se trouve plus ou moins à la même hauteur que les balcons. Pour montrer que ces derniers sont ronds et pas carrés, j'essaierais de travailler sur les ombres du moment que la barrière serait dessinée à l'horizontale! Et sinon à part ça je retoucherais peut-être l'arrondi du parquet au milieu, j'ai l'impression qu'il "vole" ! Essaie peut-être si tu es motivée de le "descendre un peu, sans toucher au niveau des marches qui sont sur le côté!
merci beaucoup !
aaarf je me doutais bien que voir le "sol" des balcons n'allaient pas... ça c'est pas trop dur à rectifier, par contre la rampe droite... (forcément l'un ne va pas sans l'autre ) mais je suis motivée !
pour le carrelage, je trouvais qu'il donnait l'impression d'être "bombée" au milieu... c'est peut-être ça qui te donne cette idée de flottement...
Oh wow! This picture is exceptional! I can't believe it. It's so beautiful! And just wonderful! Wow! lol I don't know where to begin! The detail is extraordinary-- I can't stop looking at all the work you did on the stone and all the little carvings in the walls and railing. Whenever I scroll up to look at the picture, I see something new each time! The marble stairs are gorgeous. They look like real steps! In fact, the whole thing looks like a real palace. I love the curtains around the crowd, and the crowd itself is awesome. I can't believe you did all those different characters! The banners above Zélée and Ormain have writing on them, too! I LOVE that! What do they say? And I also love the meaning behind the windows of Zélée and Zéninuma. I've been impressed for a long time how deeply you've developed the Uplean culture. ^^ This whole picture is exquisite. Can I say I'm proud of you?
i hope you can't stop looking each little detail i haven't spent hours on it to not know you examinating them
the left banner represent the Uplean flag (the circle is the planet and the little circle on the top left situates where the Upleans live - the rest of the planet is completly empty - and the arc on the top is represents Nickeas)
so you guessed it the right banner is here to represent Nickeas, the circle is the planet, divided in 3 as there are 3 continents on it and the two little circles represents its satellites.
there are still lots of thing you can find on the pic... things i placed just for you
lol No, I can't stop looking at the little details! They're captivating! I want to favorite it again each time I see it!
Special details placed just for me? *inspects picture* I see... Zauku is there! That's fairly obvious, though... our collaboration is in the window! And... is that Irgosh's face peeking out from the crowd on the lower left balcony!? Are there any more secrets?
don't worry it doesn't mean Xenia has resurrected she's all dead. But i placed here several main characters (as Irgosh who's also dead .... *omg* i killed everyone loool) just for fun, to make a narrow viewer all glad to see all those familar faces here ^__^ (i even put a second Zélée )
even if Zauku ain't dead, in fact, he never assisted to Z&O's wedding, and he left Upleas some days after.
Zélée to Zelenn : sometimes, considering all the stupidity of our creators i don't how we can be so smart !
me : careful Zélée, i can erase yoa anytime !
Zélée to Zelenn : see how savagely she can act ? not civilized at all. to me : Plus, Ia have thousands years more of evolution than yoa
me to myself : why didn't I create Nickeans as mute as bolbolkwos ?
