Concept: Irontown by inetgrafx Concept: Irontown by inetgrafx
Hi there,

This's my first painting this year.
It follows a script for a HL2-Mod.
I just want to show off a vast city scape with an unique building type.

I finally stocked up my RAM to 3GB on my Dual Xeons.
So for now digital painting is great fun . . .

It's entirely done in Photoshop using my custom brush library.

Critiques and comments are very welcome! +Favs and +Friends too ;)

Thanks for viewing and
belated a happy new year to ya all!



Thanks to all for your help via comments and critiques!
I've updated the image and corrected the appearance of the windows and added further details!

I hope you like it ...

I love it, I'm really wanting to get into something like this but I have nooo idea where to start, how did you do this completely in PS? A lot of the pen tool or what? I always picture something like this done in 3D studio first or whatever. If you have any tips, tutorials or whatever I'd be most grateful. Good stuff.

It's this kind of thing that makes me take an extra look. I love this. Not quite as much as I love natural landscapes but it comes in second on my overall Love-Factor. I simply love painting in photoshop myself and I'm really trying to get the hang of it. You master it Pretty well. And I can only strive to become just as good, or better than you are(insert better compliment). Simply stunning.

VERY unique building design! I love the colors and the way you painted all the details! You said that you used custom brushes: mind giving me a few hints or tips if I were to undertake a project like this one?

Urgh *shudder* I would really hate to live there. It seems so murky and cold.
Stunning detail. A wonderful piece of work.
JayDub89 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2007
One usually doesn't think of intense industry such as this when thinking about the beautiful parts of a city. Yet this is a beautiful image, full of exquisite detail and activity. Great work, although you've surely heard it before!

Reminds me a bit of one or two Iron Maiden album covers. :) Great work.

roark28 Featured By Owner May 18, 2007
This is just beyond amazing, it really is. I can't believe it was done in PS! And only 7-8 hours...

The only thing I would say could be improved perhaps is that when I first looked at it I could not tell that the men were high above the city since they are of similar brightness as their surroundings... so for a few seconds I thought that they were ground level and either very large men or that the buildings were very small. Maybe if the land below the beams and ladder were darker or something it would be easier to differentiate between the two levels. Or maybe there is just something wrong with my eyes!

That's just a minor thing though; overall I'm incredibly impressed by your skill =) The skyscrapers are so cool, I want to live in one XD

This has to be, without a doubt, one of my favourite pieces. I envy your abilities with Photoshop. This picture has given me some great inspirations for my writing, and I'm definitely considering purchasing a print. I would be proud to put this on my wall (I'm already using it as my desktop picture!). Continue the great work; your landscapes are one of a kind.
Dellas18 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2007
You have some seriously amazing skills with your painting. This is just out of this world. I could stare at this for days.

Great work, friend, this is really great work :)
