Shanghai 2112 by Hideyoshi Shanghai 2112 by Hideyoshi
New York was awesome! :)
Here is another Environment of the Week for conceptart.org

about 5h, no ref. I did't set up a perspective grid, so it's pretty wonky...
I actually feel I am really out of shape with my paintings ;_;
Pushing my limits and overcoming them has become harder and harder... at least I know I need improvement, heh.

You nailed it. I daresay that shanghai will likely look quite similar to this in 100 years. The quality of work here is incredible, and the overall effect is quite interesting. The mood of the piece seems to be a combination of sadness and longing with a flavor of wonder and adventure. The man on the boat, and the woman on the shore looking at each other as he floats away.... that small part of the picture takes the incredible landscape concept and brings it to life with a story.

Detailed massive industrial landscapes bring forth awe, but too many artists leave them like that, static windows into a static world. The incorporation of a human element (or even plants or animals) changes the dynamic of the piece to make it a system that is in flux. It also gives the viewer an alternate perspective in looking at the piece, where it is easier for them to imagine themselves in the landscape because they can substitute themselves for the character displayed. This brings forth a complex array of emotions from the viewer and elevates the piece to a new level of artistic merit.

It is wonderful to see that you understand this, and you deserve to be commended for all of the fantastic pieces you have created.

NY is cool, pretty fascinating as one might imagine. But dirty, too..
I visited my girl there actually, she lives there. :) I am planning to move there at some point, but I'd have to find a job there first I guess..
how are you? :) I miss Japan!

well at least youre painting a lot and working hard.. :/
ive been slacking off so badly lately.. no motivation at all.. :( so annoying.
I know that i should paint every fcking day to even become something - but no motivation
Where do you get the energy to paint through the whole painting process? I do have ideas, but even visualizing the painting process in my head is painful for me.

Looking great Lawrenz! Though I love to see a lot more of those yellow signs/bill boards on the buildings, the buildings of shangai are littered with them in real life :)

ROFL!! The girl I met in Japan that has become my long time friend & self-proclaimed sister has always said to me "You are SOOO Japanese!" XD she so funny!! I blame growing up watching Akira, Battle Angel & Project A-ko. (speaking of which, James Cameron's slotted to release a Gunnm adaption in 2016 OMG *dies*)

Hideyoshi-sama... anata wa totemou kakkoi desu~ ; 3;

I just love love love this... I can't wait to start my game company so I can commission youuuuu to paint my worlds *_* even though you practically already do, haha. That's why I love your environment paintings SO much!!!

Have you seen the new Legend of the Fist? I watched like 10 minutes of it the other day & it looks sickkk. Donnie Yen is my favorite!! Besides Mr Jaa of course. I've been so outta the loop on kung fu movies ;_; I'm ashamed!!!

thank you very arigatou muchi! :>
GunNM in 2016 - that late?! :(
I don't wanna see that Hollywood Akira remake - Robert Pattinson WTF?! And they also wanna remake GITS >:(
I did watch Legend of the Fist, it was ok. Nothing stuck with me I have to admit. Maybe I should watch it again.. also saw Lost Bladesman, another Donnie movie, too. There is some nice bits in there but I usually find swordplay era movies a bit boring.
Check Shaolin (2011) and True Legend maybe ^^ Korean movies..? You might like The Good, the Bad, the Weird.

actually this is multiple point VPs. Since the buildings are all angled also, they each have their own VP systems.
