Dungeon level 1 - level concept D: Staircase by Cloister Dungeon level 1 - level concept D: Staircase by Cloister
We now find ourselves at the very end of level one. On the wall ahead is a giant exemplar of the poisonous plants we have carefully avoided to step on and touch during this level. I hope you have discovered the bow and a quiver of arrows by now. If not you might as well walk back. As soon as you put your foot on that first step great numbers of black needles projectiles will shoot out from that spidery giant. I doubt you will make it down alive. It could of course be, though unlikely, you have happened to uncover the secret of the locals, and know how they pass this place unharmed?

That's it. Level 2 now awaits, but first I have at least 3 creatures from level 1 to make concepts for.

Principle nr 4: Creatures come very unevenly dispersed in this game. Some times you can play for hours without encounters, at other times the tunnels will be swarming with hostiles. You never know what the next turn will reveal.

If you manage to slay the huge black plant, does that mean you can walk safely down these stairs, or will something lethal flow or fly out of the mouths of the heads on the wall? Will there be other traps? Tread carefully... or pay the price.

Principle nr 5: Dying in this game will cost you points of experience. If you're not careful, you will not complete this game.

i really like this one. the dark atmosphere is great and the description really brings the image to life.

i have a question would it be possible for me to use this image as reference so i can practice my 3D modeling skill set? i want to start working on some modeling for my portfolio. i will credit you as the owner if you agree to let me use this just as reference.

Wicked area design. Love the freaky plants. Even without the description they look and feel deadly.

I wish you could illustrate every room/ corridor in a module. What a visual it would be.

This is an absolutely creepily gorgeous setting, I must say, and it is so well made :) Great perspective and values, and all the little details really add a lot to the general feeling of the place. I love it :)

Very awesome! I read the description but still don't quite understand. is Project Dungeons Deep a video game you are working on? Or is it a series of interactive paintings?

Read from the beginning and you will hopefully understand better:

(If you don't feel like reading, let's say it is a video game that I pretend I'm working on... to broaden the contents of my portfolio.)

Thanks!

Thanks! I had some help of Google SketchUp on this one. I know how to make 3 point perspectives, but it takes such a long time to do them by hand... stairs especially.

Does someone come by and clean up the needles after they're fired? Or are they just too small to see in the picture?
Reply

Cloister Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
The Dungeon-dwellers do not cause needle-ejections, and it's been a long time since this dungeon was last visited by someone unfamiliar to the nature of this plant. The needles that do fire are consumed by the various small animals that live here, or the floors have been swept clean by the inhabitants to avoid stepping on poisonous needles... pick whatever explanation that suits your imagination. They might also disintergrate in a month or so. No wait, they are collected and used as darts/arrowheads or something like that. I like your question though. Perhaps some of those needles lying around might serve as a sign of warning.
