The Salts - Mirage by wispywaffle The Salts - Mirage by wispywaffle
More conceptart for #MemoirduLune!

The Salts, the great oceans of Adelasia, cover most of the world's territory and the extensions of this ocean border on all the other lands except the world of fire.

The Mirage is a mysterious part of the Salts, where the water runs shallow for miles and miles and appears as a great mirror, and great crystal spurs rise right out of the sand. Beautiful and temperate though it is, very little people frequently visit it. Pure white creatures are said to be have seen walking across the water, but they disappear when looked at too closely and are often dismissed as a trick of the sun. No one knows if it is the rocky spurs, the water, or just the area of land itself, but people who stay too long are changed strangely, losing their grasp on reality, and some just wander off never to be seen again.

~~~

I liked the pretty monochromatic scheme of this. I add too much noisy colour into my stuff sometimes, this was stressless and easy to work with and I'm trying to get out of an art funk. I'll probably do more concept paintings.

Art by me
Done in SAI ~3 hours?

U love the idea!
Will MemoirduLune be a game? Is it playable? Do you have a link =)

Hmm also, does the name comes from french? If so... why isn't it write Memoire de la Lune?

No, sadly aha. It's a fantasy world setting that hiru and I created. 
It could make a pretty cool game setting though. uvu

One of the most beautiful creatures I have ever seen along with that incredible background~ I really love the light sources in this picture, creates a varm and calm feeling inside with this magical atmosphere :heart:
Really beautiful blue tones you have choosen, it is all so smooth with those white clouds in the background, the white beach and the white creatures. It all fits together so amazingly! It is like the ultimate beautifulness combination!
It all looks so stunnigly. HOW DO YOU MAKE IT ALL LOOK SO SMOOTH? Amazing. Just simply amazing.

this reminds me of a Stephen King short story I read.
it was about these stones in a field that look eerily like this... I am pretty sure that the story was in Full Dark No Stars.

anyways, the sky is very pretty and the balance of colours is beautiful. ^^
keep posting great stuff!
