Windy City by Hideyoshi Windy City by Hideyoshi
E.O.W #8

The Windy City.
Probably this is the most time consuming artwork I did so far. The linart took around 3 hours and was done on a format slightly smaller than A3. All together it took like 10-12 hours...
Coloring a lineart is quite annoying most of the time. I prefer doing paintings, but sometimes you can only get a certain amount of detail and design out shapes properly/quickly with the help of a strict lineart.
Lighting looks numb, the pic lacks mood. Lots of vanishing points involved here...
I am up in the sky, sailing above the grand cityscape in a sky-streamer and all I see is beyond words. I spot tiny cars, the huge wind generators and as one of the passengers beside me nears my ear to talk to me I hear....

n o t h i n g

...coz the fu***** wind’s too strong...

--> pencil
--> PS 7
--> no reference

edit: just had to fix this up for a client, so I wanted to upload the edited version here also.
I really never liked the colorful version anyway...

Make the sky more rainy, and I'd call this a masterpiece. Not that it doesn't look absolutely amazing as it is.

Oh man is that ever good. i really should practice drawing the cities more, they always turn out looking so nice. This one kinda makes me think of Gotham City for some reason though. Probably the colors, Great work though!

Another very detailed piece of work here, man. All the grey buildings remind me of the first levels on Silent Bomber...

You are just SO GOOD at doing this kind of work! You are an absolute genius!!!! :XD:

this is wonderful, love it. It must have been a hard work to do.
Darkest-of-Days Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2006
Very ominous, almost seems foreboding as to what is to become of our society in the future, with machines and industry being all that can be seen. :nod: Excellent work. ^^
CanadianRuskie Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2006   Digital Artist
probably one of the coolest citytype drawings i've seen in awhile.
mojaam Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2006
Wow, amazing show of perspective. I could never get it right in a million years.
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
thanks a lot!
TheTrashCaretaker Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2006
I still absolutely admire digital artist's who do landscapes like these and cityscapes. I got a whole bunch of sketches of cityscapes but I just can't bring myself to take them on yet. I think this looks rather good. I think your right maybe about the mood here. I would of added more to the skies maybe..the angle just doesn't seem to be working that much here for me anyway. I'm not to sure about how that one tall building is cut off at the top either. But even so there is so much still to admire here and tiny little details you have in this piece.
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
thanks for the crits and such!
I am happy to be able to distinguish myself a little bit from most of the other artists who mainly focus on character design. Environment and seitting design has always been my favourite stuff :-)

Very nice work :) I'm working a 3d scene very similar to this :P hehe .. guess you provided me with some new inspiration ;)
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
haha, that's cool! Maybe you could point me to a link of your 3d art, when its done...?
eRality Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2005
Awesome! Perhaps more light streaks and motion blurs would give it more of a sense of the hustle and bustle of a futuristic city.

The flying ships are an interesting touch.
csw315 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2005  Hobbyist
I agree with some of the criticisms you have made on your own piece of work. Nonetheless, there is so much going on in the picture, making it so exciting that nothing else needs to be taken into consideration. Great piece in my opinion, and certainly a fav.
Hideyoshi Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
yeah, thanks!
Spiritofdarkness Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2005

Alien-base Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
This is simply insane, the detail .........
I wish i would see diferent colors from artist to artist there colors are almost like a STANDARD for sci-fi cityscapes done with the tablet
The planet also ads a lot to the atmosfere almost like the planet in DUNE
