Warning: This painting might be more or less "cliche". After all, i could at least retain myself from adding spaceships or stuff like that.

This image is based on an older sketch which started out as a cloud painting practice. I finished this over the last 3 days in around 14 hours, 100% handpainted in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos2 without any reference material or Textures. This may be a little too heavy saturated, but i like pretty & powerfull colors :)
I've decided to put up a Wallpaper version to show some detail and maybe some of you would like to have this on your desktop :D

I hope you enjoy it and i would really appreciate if you drop me a comment. Thanks :nod:

Kind of Blade Runner-ish. I'm a big fan of black and red, so this was absolutely perfect to me. Great attention to detail and lighting; just masterful all-around.

I really like your skyscrapers. They look painterly, and the style is excellent. I didn't find your spaceships. But that's OK either way.
daer0n Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2005
This is a very nice picture, i dont think the clouds are pixelated at all tho...
alexiuss Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2005
the buildings are interesting, but the clouds are waaaay tooo rough and pixelated.

designslave Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
At first glance, I thought that one of the buildings looked like a Playstation 3 :P Great job!

This is gorgeous. Really detailed, wonderfully done. Snagged as wallpaper!
teheimar Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2005  Hobbyist Photographer
Wow. It might be very cliché indeed, but on the other hand it's really cool.
I do indeed like it. Thinks you've made an really good image.

Maybe you should have added some more transparenscy to the smoke veils, that might have added som more realism. As it is not is looks more like toxic fumes from the planets (?) surface.
Thought is goes very good with the very sharp (in this context) bluishness of the structures in the image.

Well done.
Cool place.
