Schoolism - Book of Atrus by shoomlah Schoolism - Book of Atrus by shoomlah
Just had to paint a scene this week using what we had learned in class so far, so I ended up doing a scene pretty heavily inspired by Riven and The Book of Atrus. It's not any scene in particular, really, just capturing the general vibe of when Atrus and Katran first met.

Anyone that makes Myst artwork is pretty awesome in my book. The novels were pretty amazing too, of the few book series that could hold my interest and couldn't put down.
Hopefully someday a studio will give the Myst universe a chance to put it on the big screen, it would be an epic film franchise.

Dude...I adore this.  This is from one of my top favorite books, and you did such a great job.  I can't even put into words how much I love this.

It reminds me of what I imagine Riven must have looked like before it began to destabilize and fall apart.  Absolutely love this.

Book of Atrus is lovely, it works wonders on the imagination. Love the designs here. A depiction of the canyon/crack he grew up in would be wonderful in this style as well!

Ooo! I miss playing those games! (loved the books, too!) You have captured the feel of this universe very well and it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. :D So great to see there are still MYST fans out there after so long...! Spectacular work!

Beautiful...
This is the part that I love most in Riven. I wish the future of architecture is this.
You did great at capturing the same spirit while making it slightly different.

You probably wrote it somewhere in reply to all the nice feedback you got (grats btw) but could you add which course you took in schoolism.com? Maybe add it in the description above. Nice work.
