Journey by Karbo Journey by Karbo
A fanart of the game Journey :)

I finally got to play it a few weeks ago and this game is a little masterpiece :D
I'm not even sure it can be really called a game. It's more of an experience , a trip in a superb digital environment that you will never forget, with an incredible atmosphere and amazing musics to boot ^^
I tried to express in this picture what I felt playing through it, sliding through the ruins of an ancient city with a bright sunset in the horizon :3

I really recommend checking this game ! Personally I put it in the same box as things like Shadow of the colossus or Ico ^_^

I may be biased here but when I played this game, I loved it. Then seeing your artwork conveying the game was just jaw-droppingly awesome!

You have literally captured the essence and atmosphere right there in that painting with such colours and simplicity that it just feels right. Also having that 'indie' feel colour scheme and gaming overcast really set the mood, depicting like you're watching the scene happen right before your eyes.

You painted the background, scenery and paintings with such awesomeness that I just had to praise you of this! But in my opinion, the perspective is just a bit skewed, maybe because it was on an angle? But still, I'm that immersed into this painting. Well done and keep up the amazing work!

Wow. This is just outstanding.

As someone who is an absolute fan of Journey artwork, this is the pinnacle of what I like to see, the absolute epitome.

I love the way the color palette is displayed in this painting. So few colors yet with so much depth.

The clouds are miraculously painted and convey that sense of a "heaven" and fulfillment that the game so well executes. The bright sun with the small star protruding from it really adds the sense of wonder and ethereal mystery to this picture.

The architecture in this painting may not 100% reflect that of the game, but it's still creative enough to see that you put your own fling to it.

I lastly have to say that the perspective of this was executed very well. The slight tilt to the left really adds to that sense of perspective and adventure. I love the little red-cloaked guy jumping over to the white cloak; it really shows a major essence of the game.

Overall, this piece is absolutely stunning. I see practically no flaws with this painting, you seriously executed this with utmost precision and attention to detail. I would seriously love to buy this as a big print and frame it in my room. This is worth something to me, and that's saying a lot.

Hey Karbo

I really think you did an outstandig job in this art work. It really recreates the emotion of the time when I play the game. For my personal space at home i would really love to print, with your permission of course, this art on a backlit foil and put it in a poster frame. Please PM me for details :)

I was quite sure I already had put this drawing into my Favourites. I was sure, too, that I had already left a review.
I'm becoming old, I forget to do things. O_O

This drawing it's both simple and intresting: lines are simple, shading and colours are simple; but the whole composition - the way you bent it, the darker parts on the bottom and the light growing up by moving upwards, the empty space in the middle and the feeling of standing just inside the city's ruins - gives to the whole drawing a strange, melancholice deepness.

Love it.

Forgive me for my terrible English!

This game...

This game is the first game to bring tears to my eyes in a VERY long time.

Beautiful does not even begin to describe it, but you've done a good job of capturing a glimpse of it here. Definitely worth a fav.

See, I've never played Journey before... But now I really want to XP If this is the kind of atmosphere and level of creativity the original game has I am completely sold! You've done wonders creating quite an alien landscape with such familiar colours, and the depth and scale of the piece is just inspiring :) I particularly like how the eye is drawn to the focal point of the sun and the jumping figure by the swirling vortex of clouds around it, very clever composition there!

Just mixed it up with Year Walk (you should try that one, Andriod or iOS though) and was a little confused as it didn┤t look very similar to it lol
But the game sure looks interesting and the drawing is epic, lovely landscape man! :)

This is simply too epic and awesome for words to justify.
I really love how the city surrounding emphasizes the grandness of the mountain,
the sky is extremely textured, articulate and beautiful too.
Truly brings to life the emotions from the game.
A journey fan's dream fan art.
I sincerely hope i would be able to do something like this too one day.

Also i would like to buy this as a print if possible, so shut up and take my money ;)

This piece of work is brilliant. Journey is a game I've been wanting to try for a few months now, but have never managed to get around to doing it. Your shading is magnificent, and the shot you've drawn there is a great version of its landscapes with your own little styling of how its laid out. Overall, brilliant piece of work!
