Ok first off, I like the fact that you flipped it, for some reason that perspective seems better. The one thing that's bothering me is the different...I'd hate to call it textures but I have no better word for it...the difference in the background and the helicopter. Where the entire background city scape looks somewhat faded a if it was foggy or rainy or something to not allow sharp lines...and then you have the helicopter in there that isn't a little faded out like everything else. I mean don't get me wrong the design and layout are amazing, just the unfazed helicopter makes too much of a stark appearance that it seems a little unnatural.
Could just be me, I still think it's a great piece, I love the cityscape.
i wanted the helicopter in the focus so the bg is hazed and a little blurred. I think its clearly an improvement over the sketch before, but everyone has his tastes and I respect it Personally I like how much the vehicle is coming forward and instantly noticable... thx for thoughts!
i created a comic book some years ago, it was only available in Germany on a small print... So I actually did come from a manga background... not sure what the future holds in terms of artbooks and more comics
haha thanks! I work for games and movies, yeah. And I have actually created a manga some years ago. It was available in Germany on a very small print... Artbook? Not sure, maybe some time far off in the future
Far off is almost too long! Hahahaha. Your work is amazing, man. I can't help but admire great concept artwork and landscape artists, mostly because I'm not quite at that same level yet. I'm actually working on a landscape right now...
Hey, if you don't mind me asking, do you have any tips on digitally painting still water? BTW, I'm working in photoshop because I have to for this assignment, so bear that in mind if you're interested. :3
dont know any direct tips in Photoshop concerning shortcuts right off the bat other than overlayed photo texture layers maybe which I would use and refine/repaint... you could also play with watery looking filters on a new layer and tweak into perspective via tranform i guess.
I'm viewing this on an iPod touch which is somewhat to my advantage because it let's me zoom in and see all the great details in your work. I do agree that it is unfinished, and with the title taken into consideration I personally would like to see more ships in the air zooming by as bees do in their hive. Overall very intricate work and I can't wait to see the finished product
