Journey by Shattered-Earth Journey by Shattered-Earth
Finally, I've drawn a few journey pictures but i think this is the only one where I feel like i've done the game even a little bit of justice. I love the fuax water color style i used for the garrus picture @o@

I wanted to do a mirrored one taking place in the end game scene but i just couldn't get the composition to work, this part of the game is just the strongest visually to me. Well strongest yet simple.. the whole game was strong and breathtaking, but this is probably the first moment the player has where they realize this game is something special.

I'm going to have this as a print with me at my cons this year :3 Sakuracon this march, then ACEN and Anime Boston, Anime Next i think and AX andddd Otakon xOx. I hope you guys will like it. It is hard to draw fanart for journey because i always want to cry T_T

This is absolutely beautiful. You captured the atmosphere of the game so well. This game fills me up with emotion even talking about it so I'm going to stop right there

Mmmmm, this is one part of the game I like, there are others, but I'd bore you to death if I listed them all. :P

And yes, it does seem you have at least done the game justice with this picture, because the partial buildings are pretty accurate to the game as they are somewhat blinded out by that fantastic sun-set.

This game...when I finished almost pushed me to tears. It took me two days to finish and when I did I did it single player on a cold winter's night with no one else in the house.......
The ending was so resonating and just....ah. I got the soundtrack and I work at gamestop and I STILL tell people to go buy it. This piece does that one scene justice. Just.....i can close my eyes and just picture it.

Just another I would put in the same indie category as Journey that I just found recently....Unfinished Swan.
It's just.......vast like Journey...but with a whole different feel. Whenever I see someone else who has a huge appreciation for this game....i fell obligated to recommend something I think they will love as well.
There's a free demo on the PSN that is awesome.

I'll go away now. Lol. I just saw this piece and just revisited the whole game. Thanks for the visual treat. :D

You should play it in multiplayer! The experience is different, even if the process is the same ToT, every time you play it it's different cause of who you might journey with. I'm glad it does justice to the scene, i've been questioning it since someone said it doesn't look like anything to them >_<

I think we actually have unfinished swan but i haven't played it yet cause it looks so artsy XD but maybe i will with your recommendation :)

Whoever tells you otherwise is confused or they weren't looking at the screen when they played through this section of the screen. :P
And I have played through the game several times on multiplayer. Whenever I get people to play it for the first time I have them play in single player first though. You're right as rain when you say its a completely different experience. But it resonates in an entirely different way when you play that first time alone.

And go play Unfinished Sawn! I have to go buy the full game, but the demo was damn good! :)

This is just so appealing on so many levels.... I really like the whole coffee-stained feeling to this, I don't know if that description makes any sense. What I mean to say is that there's this exhausted-ness that sort of leeches out of the picture. But more to do with being overwhelmed... I don't know. But it's good.

You did a good job of doing it justice! A lot of the Journey fanart I see look like clones of each other, but this is a perspective I haven't seen before.

Oh wow, this is so gorgeous. I've started getting used to a lot of Journey fanart looking the same (even my own!), but this one is so interesting, both in composition and how you colored it. It's beautiful. Great job! :D
