Hi there!

Yet another scenery painting.
It shows a rather unusual place for a city.

Starting from an initial sketch: [link]
I finally painted a vast amount of details. arrgh ...
Parts of the city, a few rocks, trees and ice surfaces are photomanipulated textures.

Some tech specs:

- 4700 x 2000 px width and height.
- 836 MB painting data.
- My right wrist nearly fell off while painting the details.
- Adobe Photoshop and Painter 8 via Wacom Intuos2 (as usual ;))


After spending 50 hours (spread over several days) I consider this painting as finished.
Critiques and comments are very welcome.

Hope you like it!


Daniel

Great detail and use of light and shade. Fascinating combination of vast wilderness and a modern urban sprawl.

immensely detailed, and very lifelike. The small touches, such as the birds, and the deepness of the lighting make it come to life. The perspective gives a feeling of place in the piece, and it stretchign away into the distance allows the viewer to imagine the scene.

It only took fifty fours?! :faint: I would expect a piece as grand and detailed as this to take weeks! How old are you, how long have you been a visual artist? This has to have been done by an older individual who was lifetime artist!

I love the shading by the way, how the sun first illuminates everything as orange and then gradually fades to fit the actual color of the land. And I like how the scene seems to go on forever. There's a term for that but it completely slipped my mind. >.< I think the most powerful aspect is the foreground and the mountains to the right. It must've been a bitch to get the shading and details between the rocks and snow right.

Great job! :thumbsup:
