This was a very enjoyable project with Discovery Mountain for something that a don’t do that often – a cityscape with no people. Most of my work is character driven and here I had an opportunity to think about a scene like I would have when I created background art for video games.
I was tasked with designing a top down view of the town from Discovery Mountain’s faith series for kids. Artwork for stories already existed so I had reference for how the police station should look, where the water tower was in town as well as the camp outside town and other important landmarks.
I did two pieces, one for Spring and one for Autumn, that will be used on their website. The spring vegetable garden became a pumpkin patch in Fall and yellow buttercups in the grass were replaced with falling leaves. It’s a town I would like to visit!
