tigaer-design.com proudly presents: THE CITY OF LIGHTS

DSCR!PTION

First of all, look at this pic as if it were some sort of concept art. It was a huge playground for me to try out a lot of things. So i maintained the concept art look and did not work too accurate. Nonetheless the style kinda works.

This one was actually planned to be a collab piece. Unfortunately nothing happened. Even with the lost collab i thought it could become a cool piece if i would finish it up alone. So i did. There is no big story behind it. I just thought i would play a bit with composition and lighting.


TECHN!CAL DETA!LS

As you can see it is a not too detailed painting. In terms of photorealism. Most of you know that i never seriously try to work photorealistic. With this pic my only goal was to create a good composition and a striking lighting. I maintained a concept art like look since i was thinking that it could help the overall atmosphere to come together.

I can imagine a lone mystic, that roams the streets of a city, recalling the world he once knew before it changed. A very nice picture, and a good example of putting light, color and objects into one picture. =)

I love the lone, shabby little sign stuck hanging off the railings, an interesting contrast with the gleaming city

This is a beautiful piece.

I adore how you've positioned everything in front of that gorgeous sunset, and how you've managed to create the colours in the sky in an way that casts an almost dream like light across the rest of the picture.

Very beautiful scenery here, and there's plenty of detail for me!
The city looks stunning, but as with most cities, I can't help but wonder if it might be a different story in the streets below. (assuming there are streets.)
