Skyrim ‘Paint-Over’ Time-Lapse

A work in progress.

For those of you that are interested in Bethesda’s newest addition to the Elder Scrolls franchise, we’ve got a very special treat for you. GameInformer recently released a time-lapse video that shows what is called ‘paint-overs’.  In this process an artist takes an already existing screenshot and turns it in to a piece of hand drawn art.  The video is drastically sped up so you can see all the work that goes in to this piece before it’s finally finished.

The artist responsible for this drawing is Ray Lederer, and the music behind the video is a new in-game piece from composer, Jeremy Soule.

    cool vid, never seen an example of artwork progression like that before

    i have no doubt this game will be awsome
    despite the few well documented flaws of e.s.oblivion, which i loved and still play time to time
    the game blew me away, if only someone would make a l.o.t.r game like this

    cant wait this, day1 purchase no question

      there’s loads of videos like that on youtube, http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=speed+draw&aq=f

      shows the skill and sheer amount of work that goes into some of this artwork, when you see what starts out as a couple of roughly drawn lines turn into what looks like it could almost be a photo, just amazing.

      and as for the game, i can’t wait to see it in action, i’m guessing they might show actual footage at e3.

    I don’t get it. Why not start it on a clean sheet? The result would have been the same.

    Though I guess calling it a “paint-over” is true, since he did paint it over the screenshot, I just thought, that maybe he would turn the screenshot into a painting and maybe change a few things, or change the colours i.e. turn day into night etc.

    Impressive work either way.
