Strange News by tigaer Strange News by tigaer
Project name for this one was 'assimilated' until i found a title i had to use for this one. Now imagine mankind will make it some day... and meet other lifeforms (in peace!). How would a technological mix would visually break down the look of a city, that shares human as well as alien technology in its architecture? Of course this is all speculative and imaginary. The title i used is actually a 16min song that followed me through the making of this picture. "...And you will know us by the trail of dead" - Album: Tao Of The Dead. Awesome piece of music. My recommendation.

Now this one is a perfect example of a painter who has no idea what he's doing. He's letting guide himself from what the pic tells him. Excited like a little kid playing hide and seek. Well i basically just sat down and played with brushes and Photoshop. This time i used a plate i shot a few years ago in Berlin. =passacaglia may remember. =D I always knew this material could be useful someday. Now i finally found use for it. I'm pretty surprised what came off of it. Since pretty much nothing of the actual plate is left. Looking back at what i did so far, this pic surely has a unique approach and feel to it.

I think i got a little inspired by the style of concept guys like Sparth or Syd Mead. Everything Photoshop this time. No Vue or 3d elements in here. Well... not exactly. I created some brushes off of some of my scifi Vue buildings. That worked not bad here. The basic pic was done after 2 or 3 days. A lot of time went into (pretty much unnecessary) fine tuning. I had the time and used it to polish certain areas a little more than others. Just for fun.

I personally would say it's one of my best pics. Really enjoyed making it. Hope you enjoy the view too!

Wow this is a stunning picture I think it could've been an image of an Alien world on Star Trek or an Sci-Fi TV show.

No you what it's better than that just being a digital matte paiting used as background as a shuttle did a flyover.

It could have been the inspiration to become one of the twelve colonies from Battlestar Galactica.

Stunning imagery, brilliantly done.

So how to drag this comment to a minimum 100 word comment, yeah really struggling with that love the picture just don't know what else to say about it. Other than a good job. keep up the good work, yeah that's done it.
What do you think?
