Mama’s Ice Cream

December 15, 2019

Final Version of Mama's Ice Cream

This was an image I originally started for an old conceptart.org prompt. It was for the Environment of the Week challenge and the prompt was “Ice Cream Stand in the Bad Part of Town.” I took inspiration from Nikolai Lockertsen’s image “5 Min” seen here; https://www.artstation.com/artwork/yZWW9 and https://youtu.be/Bku9Ve5Phbs I also took inspiration from the movie “John Wick,” especially the idea that “The Continental” is neutral territory. So the “Mama’s Ice Cream” store above represents the neutral ground for this rough neighborhood.

Thank you to all the people that helped me out with this image; Earl Mercado, Tita Esther Baticados, Myriad, Milk, Sticky, Ajams, Xi, Shannon, Skyebluebandit, White Rabbit, and Omik. Sorry if I forgot to mention somebody.

  • Advertisements Go Here

    I don't like ads. I don't think anyone likes ads. But they do play a pivotal role in our lives. In my case, ads help pay the bills. So unfortunately, advertisements will go here. The good news is that I have not set up advertisements for this website yet. Yay! But if you do want to help me out in the smallest of ways, then head over to my YouTube Channel and subscribe. Not only will you be helping me out, you will also learn a thing or two about my art! Hooray for learning!
