Not Enough Mushrooms: Day 328

NMS Walker by Robert Chapman

Besides the obvious fact that this digital painting is unfinished, I feel it’s missing something. The only conclusion I can come up with is that it’s lacking some sort of alien mushroom. Recently, I’ve joined the unofficial No Man’s Sky facebook group (currently over 1000 members) and I think I’ll ask them if there’s been any screenshots of No Man’s Sky gameplay showing off anything that looks like an alien mushroom.

Usually I’m pretty decent at locating things via the Internet, but in this case, I’m sure there’s someone out there that specifically remembers seeing a mushroom. Or, perhaps not. There is this image, but I’m not sure if those “trees” would pass as mushrooms. Then there are the round bulbs on the ground as well, which I might settle for if nothing comes up.

Other than the No Man’s Sky painting today, there hasn’t really been much else going on. I’m actually quite focused on trying to make this No Man’s Sky artwork as high quality as I can, without going too crazy with the details that it takes me over a week to complete. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I’m just trying to take a bit of a break from the epic paintings and try and churn out a few quick (ish) ones specifically for this game.

You know, even if I can’t find the mushrooms I’m looking for, I could just Google regular old Earth mushrooms and just paint some of the more strange ones. That’s boring though, we absolutely need freaky alien mushrooms here.
