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.

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?
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.
