Skyhigh by tigaer Skyhigh by tigaer
My god I cannot even tell how old this picture already is, lying in a dark corner of my hdd. Now I guess it's finally time to release it into the wild.

Technically I worked with Vue and mixed in various elements from previous personal projects. Parts of it were used in my winning entry for the EvE Online Create a Starship contest: [link] Later on I added some more stuff via Photoshop. I'm not sure if it qualifies entirely as a digital matte painting but I surely used the respective techniques for it.

Last but not least I must admit that it's again one of the scenes I would love to see for real. Slowly gliding above that massive thing of a city. Watching the smaller transporters and gliders zipping through the clouds and canyons of buildings. Very StarWarsy but I find it cool.

Vue - Photoshop - 4000px wide

Hi, I am designing my office wall to be a canvas of different pictures and I want to put this on the wall. Is there a possibility I could get this without all the black around the images and just the artwork on canvas?

Sorry for the late reply. Yes it is possible but not without cutting off parts of the picture on the left and right.

I guess I have a weak spot for your creations :-)  I decided that it was time for a new wallpaper on my KDE desktop and went to your website to get a hi-res version of Skyhigh. Browsing your catalog I found my current wallpaper was also your creation (Room With A View). Thanks for sharing.

Is this self taught or did you take a class?

Pretty much self taught. Some of the 3d models I bought online, took them apart and put them together again, to create new shapes. Can be a painful process... but worth it if the result works.
