CHECK OUT THE PHOTO I STARTED WITH: [link] by `freezejeans (i have full permission to use the image)

D³SCR!PTION

The meaning of the pic is to show the kind of path we're all going. On the left side we have the oldish, familiar looking environments. While on the right we have the monstrous huge futuristic city that seems to literally eat the people, their lives and lets them appear soooo small that they almost don't count anymore. The old bridge is a kinda symbole to show that both parts are still connected and that only you alone decide to take that walk into the future or not.

On the other hand... it's just a cool sci-fi based artwork. ;p

TECHN!CAL DETA!LS

First of all i want to tell those super critique folks that this pic is far from perfect, i know that. There's, once again, lots of experimental stuff in it. It's very different to the stuff i ever did before. Basically it's a very big huge mo0onster photo manipulation. You ask yourself why it's call matte ';painting' then. That's what i ask myself too sometimes lol. But it's true. In some ways it is a painting. In others not. Since you work with a tablet and pen... you first block in all the stuff you want to have in your pic. That's the painting part. Once you nailed down the composition and main elements, you move into the manip part and the painting work takes a step back. Once the manip part is done, you move into painting again to add detail where it's necessary. Todays digital matte painting is a variety of mediums. From usual photos to high detail 3d to excellent paintings... all combined in a single pic.

digital matte painting, wacom, photoshop, 40hrs, 3500px wide, 300dpi, 110mb psd

amaZing. and..wow! you put a little work into this one, eh?

really great job.

anyone of the images, alone, are great pieces of art. but the combination of all of them creates one of two things.....

a modern, architectually brilliant and beautiful future........or,

from a modern present, to a past where bricks are crumbling and weeds are growing, and the cars are out of gas.

i suppose its how you look at it, right?

great work.

I like how the left side of the image draws your eye (well, my eye at least) more than the right side, which seems very impenetrable...it really goes with what you were looking for.

What I'm curious about, though, is what is the make of the car, and does it mean anything? ;)

Wie ich früher schon mal gesagt hab: das ist eines meiner Lieblingsstücke von dir.. ;)

Allerdings gibt es immer noch zwei Sachen, die mich explizit daran stören.. Beide haben mit dem Auto zu tun.
1. Warum sind die Bremslichter zu sehen? Sitzt jemand im Auto und steht auf dem Bremspedal? Denn es wirkt als sei derjenige, der am Auto steht, auch der Fahrer. Ist also etwas irritierend. ;)
2. Das Nummernschild sieht sehr französisch oder belgisch oder auch britisch aus (generell: europäisch). Da das aber offenslichtlich im New York der Zukunft spielt (also in den USA), sollte das aber eher ein anderes Nummernschild sein (nicht Gelb und nicht so lang, eher höher - US-Nummernschild eben ;P).
Sind nur kleine Kritikpunkte, die mir aber aufgefallen sind. Ich hoffe, du nimmst sie nicht persönlich - denn das ist die Kritik nicht. :)

Lass es dir gut gehen.^^

niiiich übertreiben junge *g* ;p das mit den bremslichtern könnt stimmen. hab die karre damals irgendwann mal auf der autobahn fotografiert. das nummernschild hab ich eigentl unkenntlich gemacht. ok es schimmert gelb durch, na und? DAS IS DIE ZUKUNFT MAN! da hat die ganze welt nur eine flagge... stars n stripes :D lol ich liebe aus der luft gegriffene erklärungen, die im kontext mit einem bild, tatsächlich funktionieren könnten. :D

Hahaha, damit kannst du mich aber nicht schocken oder verwirren! :D

Das könnt nicht nur stimmen, das tuts auch! ;) Aber ist ja wie schon gesagt nicht so schlimm, mir gefällt das Bild jedenfalls auch so sehr gut! (und ich bin schon gespannt auf dein neuestes Projekt - auch wenn ich zur Zeit nicht wirklich viele comments schreiben kann. Ich bin zur Zeit in Canada und da hab ich andere Sachen zu tun. ;))

Bye bye und lass es dir gutgehen! ;P

Very nice, but the shadow of the car sounds awkward, while the perspective of the bridge looks a bit strange to me.
