Thanks! It's fun working on a large view like this and zooming in to different areas to detail them.

Gorgeous work! :D On a separate yet similar note, I'm looking for an artist to help me design a steampunk/dusty, in the west style town. I'm still working on the technology, but if it's something you might be able to devote some time to in the near future I'd really like to talk to you more about it. I also have some other stuff you might be interested in. So, if you have the time I definitely have some monster ideas I'd like to get out there somewhere, and I'd really like to see some of your art highlight what I have.

Heheh, it's not all that dramatic. I actually walked away from my last studio position and right now some very promising opportunities are coming up. Thanks for the compliments! Edge of Twilight looks pretty cool but I haven't been hearing much about it. Hopefully things are going well and we'll see some trailers for it soon. :)

Awesome job on this too :)

While a bit of off perspective doesn't matter much for a piece like this (sometimes it can add to it), IMHO taking the time to nail all the details in perspective super correctly really makes a concept piece shine. (Like Feng Zhu for example).

Looks great though, very moody!

Thanks again! Yeah, I think I zoomed in on stuff too early on this one and started getting a number of odd inconsistent perspective issues going on, particularly in the bottom left and bottom right corners. If I get around to revisiting this one for my portfolio at some point it should be easy to get some quick selection transformation fixes in there so it isn't so glaring.

Thanks! Hehe, what resolution are you looking for? I'm not on my art machine right now so I'm not sure what the source resolution is, but it's probably pretty big.

My monitor is 1920x1200, so just something that'll look good at that size would be excellent. Thank you! :D

Beautiful, beautiful design. I love the way you've worked it around the existing terrain instead of just blasting on through.

It kinda makes me think of Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, what with the way that one has the river just going straight through it.

Yours is drier, of course. =P

FLW was a great designer, although admittedly I haven't studied his works since back when I was an architecture major. I remember he was really good with using materials.

A river runs through the bottom of the canyon too, but it does look kind of nasty and not very watery. Maybe it's just industrial sludge runoff. ;)

Yeah, I spent way too much time with the round brush zoomed in super close. Bad habits die hard, eh? I need to get myself to loosen up and let things get a bit messier. Thanks for the comment man. :)

ffffffff
this is amazing.

I love the depth you've created in this picture, also the colors are very beautiful.

my eyes kind of jump around because the warm and cool hues are a little scattered (I can see a middle focal point though, on the cliff).

but um, you should totally make a tutorial thing, not like, an in depth one, but an animated gif showing the process... that would be so cool ;w;
Reply
:iconzackf:
ZackF Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks! :lol: Yeah, it's a bit jumbled now, with too little emphasis on specific focal points and rather haphazard flow. I'm planning to revisit it at some point to detail up some of the buildings and correct some perspective errors, so I'll try improving the flow while I'm at it.

I'll see if I can get around to that gif at some point over the next few days. :)
