Metropolis by Hideyoshi Metropolis by Hideyoshi
Every once in a while, Hideyoshi puts a few more hours into his paintings.
Neglectfully, he paints away without proper planning and concept, hiding a boring base in eyecandy detail and colors.
Then he regrets that he did and submits it to DA anyway b̶̶e̶̶c̶̶a̶̶u̶̶s̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶h̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶t̶̶h̶̶i̶̶n̶̶k̶̶s̶̶ ̶̶h̶̶e̶'̶s̶̶ ̶̶c̶̶o̶̶o̶̶l̶̶.̶

the end.

*cough
no 3D base (except for the 3 main buildings), I was struggling with making the boring composition work. There are some scale issues and most of the building design is rather generic.

Very impressive - I love the sun streaming between the two centre structures - nature squeezing through - despite the technology. I think you do yourself a disservice, I like the composition.

I am sorry but you call this boring? If this is boring you have never set foot in my third period math class. Really this picture is detailed, exiting and imaginative. It inspires me.

You'd have to get off lucky, painting a masterpiece without preparation. Turns out you hit the mark perfectly.

The mark of a cityscape perfectionist. While the architect may look down on his own work, we revel in the opportunity to observe from above. Good practice!

When ever I picture Metropolis I think of Gothom city or the 1927 movie Metropolis. I think it needs loads more absurdly tall and cramped buildings.

You're keeping your skills sharp. It's never a loss in that case.

Besides, you've got plenty of fans such as myself who are glad to see whatever you produce.

I still think it's cool even if *Hideyoshi hid a boring base in eyecandy. The soft sunset colors make this picture, and that's good enough for most. :D

Why do you 'beat yourself up' about this work?
It's a LOT better than a lot of us can do!
Be positive, otherwise other people won't!

Of course this is great as usual! But maybe a character somewhere would help us get a feel what is done at this city and what the people are like because now it seems like a robot town. Since we are humans in the 21st century we really don't know about cities like this and they are foreign. So that's why a character would help us relate. But,you had fun and it resulted in something amazing! When will you have an ART BOOK come out?
