Sunset by Gabriel-BS Sunset by Gabriel-BS
I thought I'd try and make a futuristic looking city since I really wanted to try something new. Result, a very fun piece to do!

Layers: 54
Time: 4-5 Hours
Size: 4096x 2758px (Original 4928x 3264px)

I'd appreciate any critique as this is the first photomanipulation/matte/painting I have done and would love to improve!
So please feel free to comment and :+fav:

This is quite simply - AMAZING! I would LOVE to know how you did the buildings (probably seems like a stupid question xD). I'd love to do futuristic cityscapes but I've basically got no idea how to do buildings correctly, particularly ones that look like yours. I usually just find CC0 stock images of citys and do a ton of cut out layers while changing the blending options to get some kind of effect but it still turns out quite ugly... anyway, care to share you technique =) ?

Kinda reminds me of Chicago.

It's based on an image of Chicago, so that might be why :)

You seem to be over skilled, that is not nice, other will get jealous at you, shame on you.

Really awesome what you create, keep it up!

Well, it's not skill that came without a lot of practise and patience. So I think that the people can turn their jealousy into motivation!

Thanks a lot. :)

Hell Yess!! Looks awesome! I would maybe add a bit more atmosphere on the lower part of the buildings and soften the edges of them a bit more so that the buildings look more seperated. Other than that very cool mood, and I love those lights above the water on the right! Looks very yummmy!!! :D

Hey thanks man! I will think of the atmosphere next time! :P  I found these matte painting very fun to, and it's a good step up from space art, so you'll probably see a lot more of this in the near future! :D

Wow, this is completely different to anything else I saw in your gallery. I would say it's quite good for a first time attempt. Perhaps more textures on those skyscrapers to make it better.

I believe you are entirely right about adding more texture to the skyscrapers. I will think of it next time! Thank you for the comment, I truly appreciate it! :hug:
