Ancient Walled Kingdom by DylanPierpont
Ancient Walled Kingdom
Time for another Matte piece! Uploaded this at full 1920x1080 HD quality so feel free to use it as a wallpaper if you like :)

I made this for the monthly matte painting challenge that wrapped up last week. For more info on the prompt you can check out the official thread here:…

I learned a lot on this piece. Still a few areas that could have been addressed but overall it was a great experience. Really trying to dig deep on these and push them as far as I can. This was the first time I'd ever incorporated a fully rendered, hard-surface, 3D model for my work before. Huge thank you to Jayson Miller and his Gumroad video that pushed me to create this castle using MODO. I highly recommend checking it out if you're looking to get started with basic block modeling:

If you're interested in some of the process that went into this piece feel free to check out my thread over on CGSociety:…

Big thanks to the judges David Luong, Milan SchereFabio Barretta Zungrone and everyone that provided feedback for me along the way. And a huge congrats to Aaron McNaughton and Nilesh Parmarker for landing a spot in the top 3. You guys crushed it! You can check out their entries along with past contest winners here:…


First 3 people to find the easter egg will get a free print ;) Circle the spot on the image and email your entry to DON'T ANSWER HERE IN THE CHAT. I'll be sure to add hints here each week until 3 people are chosen:

Week 1) Just a heads up to everyone, I've gotten a few emails so far but no one has gotten it. (ps, that's your first clue) ;) Happy Hunting!
Week 2) My good buddy Jayson Miller helped me out in understanding the basics of 3D and rendering on this one. If only there was some way I could immortalize his soul...
Week 3) Stone lasts quite a while. Maybe I should carve him out of stone...? Like one of those Greek gods or something.
Week 4) (To be announced on Monday October 27th)

Congrats to :iconerikshoemaker: and :iconkaisaunders: for being the first 2 to find it ;) One spot left. Who's gonna grab it!?


Hi Everyone!

Lots to cover here, so stay with me :)

First off! In case you aren't already aware, :iconleventep: and :iconeyellusive: in association with the Brother's Harrow have put together an amazing new pair of graphic novels. They currently have just 4 DAYS left on their Kickstarter and are sooooo close to making this happen. So please, before you do anything else, go check out the page and consider becoming a backer:…

As part of this incredible project Levi and Alex will be putting together an "Art Of" book to accompany all the backers who pledge $20 or more to the Kickstarter when they meet their stretch goal. The list of talent is absolutely insane: Daniel Chavez, Jama Jurabaev, Karla Ortiz, Nadia Mogilev, James Paick, Jonas De Ro, Mark Molnar, Bastien Lecouffe, Geoffrey Ernault, David Loung, Brad Rigney, Dave Rapoza, Maciej Kuciara, Trevor Claxton, and myself....and that not even half of who you'll get to see in 'Mythmaking' :D You can view the full list of contributing artists here:… So quick! Head on over to the Kickstarter and back it before the deadline is up!! (P.S. they have a special prize for the person who puts them over the $19K mark in the next 24 hours)

Secondly, for a while now some of you have been following along with my personal project entitled "The Precipice". I'm in the throes of wrapping up the first stage of the project and will be starting the initial promotion at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live next month. If you're in the Kansas City area, feel free to come down for a few days and check out booth #520 in the Bartle Hall Grand Ballroom from May 10th-11th. I'll be exhibiting work from The Precipice alongside my partner-in-crime :iconcrystalsully: who will be showing off all the hard work she's done for her project "The Aegrus". We'll be selling prints and handing out freebies so stop by and say hi if you're in the area!

Lastly, I just want to plug a new podcast that myself, :iconzacharymadere: and Grant Griffin started up recently in an attempt to shed some light on what it's like to be an artist in the middle of starting their career in the entertainment industry. We're going to be covering a host of topics that will hopefully be of some use to any art student or hobbyist looking to make art their profession, and some of the triumphs and failures that accompany that decision.  You can catch the first episode on our blog here:… Let me know what you think, if you have any questions, and if there's anything you'd like to be discussed in later segments!

That's all for now. Thanks so much for all the new followers on my page and many thanks to those that have stuck around with me over the years. I'm really excited to start giving you all a glimpse into my world and see what you make of it......the coven awaits ;)




Just wanted to fill this space with some of the most talented minds in existence...gotta rep the people who provide me with insights, imagination, and inspiration (in no particular order)...
