Painting test I did for a game studio job. The assignment was to draw an underwater scene with a path for characters to walk across horizontally, and add a monster that goes with the scene.
Concept: The conch is a magical item in the map that can give you powerful magic (special skill/item/stat). Then, I wanted to design an enemy monster that is protecting this treasure. My first thought is a dragon protecting a treasure like in fantasy novels, and a horse gaurd/knight (in chess represented by a horse). But this is an underwater scene, so I combined a seahorse with a dragon.
Any comments/critique appreciated
