Titan Fortress - E.O.W by Hideyoshi Titan Fortress - E.O.W by Hideyoshi
Did this for the newly established Environment of the Week (E.O.W) contest over at Conceptart.org with the topic being "Titan Fortress".
Took 8 hours in all think, done without reference (as usual).
I am not so pleased with the lighting and design actually.

here is a small sidestory I made up which each contributor had to include with the finished artwork:

>> Neo-Tokyo has been leading in producing the world's largest megastructures ever since. In 2051, Crystal Intrusanet Corp. invented a new Titanium alloy that lead to creating a new form of high-tech living facilities yet only being available to the upper class which could afford it. The so-called X-Arches are small cities in their own providing enormous living space and a versatility of convenience goods. These Titan fortresses are planned to being established in all the global power-states by the end of 2070. <<

Amazing! I was browsing google for visual inspiration for the scifi novel I'm working on. Hope you don't mind I pinned it to my pinterest board with a link to you. I'll remove it if you want, just let me know.

Diggg everything! The only thing is, I'm looking for a new poster for my wall, and this would be perfect, but I want it to be big. any chance you could modify it to be slightly more detailed and remove the main x-arch? I like it, but I'm into skylines and the x-arch in the front kind of takes away from the view. pls let me know if you're willing. I will gladly pay for good-looking work

looks good.. but best in smaller size.. there's something about the perspective that seems a little skewed. Might be the break of the river in the left corner..

I hope I had the skills to draw and imagine stuff like this but since I don't, only thing left for me is to watch others work and be amazed what the human mind can come up with. Great work.

Design's pretty darn good IMO. Very original, though somehow the perspective/form of the large crecent shaped building looks a tinge off. BTW, I like the fact that you work without reference. I usually don't either, and it's sort of a point of pride :) Keep up the great work.

thx for the crits. That's right, I don't use ref. because I resent the idea of cheating and needing help in a way... :-P

Np. Keep in mind that, though I criticise, I think your work in general is fantastic. And I couldn't agree more; using refs too much feels exactly like cheating.

die dinger sehen fast aus wie lebewesen. :)
von der formsprache her fallen sie ziemlich aus dem bild, wodurch die gesamtkomposition ein wenig 'unsahnig' auf mich wirkt ... auf der anderen seite passt gerade das sehr gut zur story.

Hm, weißt du was schade ist - diese Balken oben rechts. Man sollte eigentlich das Gefühl haben, dass die X-Gebäude die größten haben, um ihre Besonderheit herauszustellen - durch die Balken hat man nur das Gefühl, von oben auf sie herabzulächeln...

Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
danke für die Kritik. Hast durchaus Recht und ich hatte mir ger keine großen Gedanken gemacht. Jedenfalls hab ich die Blaken dahin gesetzt, weil ich Nähe zum Betrachter schaffen wollte. Ist son Trick bei Conceptern... :-)
Und ganz unter uns: Ich amag das Bild nicht, echt nicht. Perpektive suckt, lighting suckt und selbst das design ist nicht grad originell...
