"The Dunes" Time Lapse


"The Dunes" is Mal's 3rd video game painting on MalMakes.

This painting was inspired by Mal and Stephen's Let's Play of Journey, and depicts the Traveler looking towards the mountain.

This is Mal's second attempt at painting a Journey painting. According to the June 2016 Q&A, Mallory had actually painted another painting of Journey first, which didn't work out in the end.
