I first created a Jade Empire inspired artwork like this back in 2011 but I wasn’t completely satisfied with it. Now I have gone back and created this new (and final?) redux version. I tried to keep the same green and golden solemn tones and general theme but changed the central figure (the warrior) and enhanced everything I could with all the latest techniques I’ve learned. It may have taken a while to create an artwork that I’m totally pleased with (as much as I can be about one of my own artworks) but this one was well worth the wait.
The realistic lighting used in this scene is actually a quite simple IDL setup with a gold colored IDL sphere, one edge blend light, and one specular light. That’s it! There truly is beauty in simplicity. Since the first version of this scene, I updated several materials with SSS-enhanced shaders including the woman and the dragon. I also created a new procedural stone material for the background Fu Dog statues and updated the katana with raytraced reflections. The warrior’s gown-like kimono is a dynamic cloth model with my own textures/materials. In postwork I adjusted the colors and contrast plus added a vignette and depth of field effect.
Each artwork is printed by professional printers so that your prints will look amazing and last a lifetime. The prints will be printed on a metallic fine art paper that creates stunning, vibrant prints with high contrast. Artworks were created at and will be printed at 300ppi for crisp detail. Some color variation may arise due to differences in computer monitors/mobile devices and display settings. Prints will look as the artist intends and be shipped ready for framing. The “Copyright Lizzie Prusaczyk www.d9s.co” watermark seen on preview images will not be on the printed image. A small “signature” will be faintly visible on the lower left corner. I try to make sure that my digital signature does not distract from the artwork and is only just visible enough so that you will always know who the artist was who created the artwork.
