Environment: Gothic Industrial by inetgrafx Environment: Gothic Industrial by inetgrafx
Hi there!

Slowly approaching 100K !! Thanks a lot for this crazy amount of views!

After finishing work on Frank Millers "300", I still didn't had enough from painting clouds. So I started this one for fun and as promotional piece for Jessy Veilleux's (www.jessyv.com) new company Meduzarts (www.meduzarts.com).

I painted this picture from scratch, starting with the clouds and finished with the city. No 3d geometry was used no photo references. It would have been for sure more accurate to use a 3d base and photorefs for the beginning.
But I basically saw this as an excercise to practice my painting skills and I had a lot of fun with it. I hope the small details show that ... :o)

Overall I tried to create an futuristic industrial environment with gothic architecture merged with sci-fi elements at dusk.
I tried to create a transition with the vegetation vs. the buildings from the left to the right.

Thanks a lot for viewing,
Best Regards,

Dan

I WOIULD LOVE TO USE YOUR PICTURE FOR A BOOK COVER. yes, its that good. I took art and was very good and drawing in charcoal. I have 4 novels out and I always design my own covers but this one is more "Gothic CITY" like and I love that. Could you please email me and let me know as soon as possible, hopefully no later than January, Friday 17, 2014 by 3pm. This is SO life like that its unbelievable. Email me at  sandysatta@yahoo.com and you can also email me on here as well.

Industrial environments inhabited by goths are meant to be dark and inhumaneI think you captured it all just right on this one. It's great!

However, I wish the buildings were less steampunk and more gothic, but that's just me ;)

I need to go get a bucket to mop up the drool. This is beautiful beyond belief. I think I'm in love. Sorry if I sound creepy.

Amazing detail for something done from scratch. It's something I imagine a pre-hive Imperial city from Warhammer 40K would look.
