Digital Painting - Week 8

I re-dressed the church interior I painted from before, and turned it into some spider infested lair.  Maybe fanatics come to sacrifice themselves for the spider-god .... or something :)

I'm having a lot of trouble trying to get that "painterly" look.. I feel like my stuff looks too "photoshopped"

Train Re-Design... I've been really fascinated with ocean creatures recently, so I wanted to design an underwater locomotive that uses the squid's swimming method as inspiration

6 Pages of trains from reference:
