20 Badass landscapes

We got great responses on our last landscape piece, so we found twenty more! Enjoy.

Nightmare by Dimitri Jakubowski

Who’s nightmare is it, the person walking, or the person watching them?

Virtual Plein Air Iii by Mateusz Katzig

Virtual Plein Air Iii by Mateusz Katzig

I’m not sure if you’ve ever stood on a mountain before, but it is amazing. Mateusz’s piece is a fantastic representation of what we see when we look from the top of a hill.

Pilgrim by Onur Bakar

Pilgrim by Onur Bakar

Onur Bakar’s piece, Pilgrim, is stirring. What a fantastic sense of distance, what a unique color palette. Even the interplay of light/dark, the shadows over the buildings on the left side of the piece.

Highlands by Mateusz Katzig

Mateusz is here twice because he deserves to be. The way the clouds cast against the sea of green may be the highlands, but it makes me think of the long fields of South Dakota.

Alien Vegetation by Victor Hugo Harmatiuk

Alien Vegetation by Victor Hugo Harmatiuk

Alien Vegetation is fascinating, it’s dark and poignant. If it wasn’t titled after the green moss-like plants in the piece, we probably wouldn’t have noticed it at all. Funny how plant-life means more on a barren world than it does in our own where trees are fairly ubiquitous (even if they are being cut down all over)

Impossible by Le Vuong

Scale gets to me, every time. This dragon is so massive, so wide-stretching, that their side is a landscape to the onlooker standing near the bottom of the shot. Wow.

Snow City by Dmitry Vishnevsky

Snow City by Dmitry Vishnevsky

Winter can be dominatingly depressing, and Dmitry’s “Snow City” nails that somber tone. The dirt along the side of the road, the expanse of snow between the viewer and the factory buildings in the distance, it all adds to this cold shot that leaves us shivering.

Landscape5 by Emrullah Çıta

Landscape5 by Emrullah Çıta

I’m playing through the Assassin’s Creed series before the movie comes out, and this shot takes me right back to the rooftops of Damascus in AC1. The way light plays over a landscape is so important for a good piece of art, and Emrullah nails it.

Sleeping Mushroom by Ricard Cendra

Sleeping Mushroom by Ricard Cendra

How is this weird, humorous, and peaceful at the same time?

Sketch by Roman Roland Kuteynikov

Sketch by Roman Roland Kuteynikov

A more colorful take on winter, Roman Roland Kuteynikov’s Sketch plays with the reds and pastels that we don’t normally see in a winterscape piece.

Sunset City by Satyaki Sarkar

Sunset City by Satyaki Sarkar

Oh man. Hang this on my bedroom wall and let me stare into it for hours.

A New Beginning by Alexandre Pinto

A New Beginning by Alexandre Pinto

Fascinating that this piece is called A New Beginning. Some might say it was an end.

The Cave by Julien Hauville

The shining blue walls in the background make me want to explore, the red underneath makes me think twice.

Fantasy Landscape by Felipe Forntiani

I know Felipe’s “Fantasy Landscape” is supposed to be a fantasy landscape, but it makes me want Zion National Park.

Space Distortion Demon by Stephen Zavala

Space Distortion Demon by Stephen Zavala

I want to play this game. I want to be the samurai charging to the tear in reality to confront whatever beast will leap out from it.

Alien Landscape by Robin Florie

Alien Landscape by Robin Florie

The span of the landscape and the architecture reminds me of the Halo series, but with a feudal twist.

Spherecity by Dmitry Vishnevsky

Spherecity by Dmitry Vishnevsky

Cities that don’t function on linear architecture are fascinating, confusing, and exciting.

Skycity by Kelvin Liew

Skycity by Kelvin Liew

There is a castle on a cloud

I like to go there in my sleep

Aren’t any floors for me to sweep

Not in my castle on a cloud

Sci Fi Harbour by Claudio Pilia

Sci Fi Harbour by Claudio Pilia

The spiraling architecture is beautiful in this piece by Claudio, and the notion that luxury ships would still exist in a futuristic setting is something I’d not considered before. Bravo.

Abandoned Canyon by Henry Peters

Abandoned Canyon by Henry Peters

The somber tone in this piece is incredible.

Distant World by Felipe Forntiani

Distant World by Felipe Forntiani

The color palette is what makes this piece really shine, the set of greens and blues used is prime.

Highland by Onur Bakar

Highland by Onur Bakar

I’m always amazed when an artist really nails depictions of light in a piece.

Fractal Environment Sketch by Stéphane Richard

Fractal Environment Sketch by Stéphane Richard

What unearthly monster carved these lines?

Abandoned by David Tilton

Abandoned by David Tilton

The only sign of humanity is found in the flares, the rest of the city is dark. A great example of how to make an image stirring, rather than just nice to look at.

Overwatch by Alex Ledger

Overwatch by Alex Ledger

The use of a grayscale palette and the depiction of shadows gives this piece a somber, almost grieving tone. The juxtaposition of the old, run-down house with the futuristic spacecraft in the background makes the tired warrior standing next to the house seem left behind, forgotten.
