good. this is getting desktopped


this depresses the shit out of me, while really well made it strikes a bit on the emotional part as well

It shouldn't depress anyone really, the colors used are warm, the presence of subtle greenery is added to uplift the mood a little too. The thing about the piece is about humility, being positive and enjoying the little things. The only depressing part is the sheer overwhelming landscape over the humble little fisherman. Not sure if that made sense, but I'm waking up after a big night so I apologize.

Great Art

Really awesome, looks like a futuristic Cleveland/Detroit type city. I like this a lot. Could be a city in a video game or something. Keep up the great work

Actually, the inspiration for this is based on a Flash game I'm working - I'm hoping to use this type of aesthetic for the game itself.

Reading the review below...

...My god I want to see that flash! This is very great indeed!

Personally, I love futuristic types of art, especially if there's a city or landscape involved. I've started a small collection of really awesome artwork and this one is definately going straight into that certain folder!

Let me say first of all: great shadow works, everything seemed so real, (this is gonna sound lame :P) it's like I can walk straight into there. Also, even though it the city seems empty, there's a lot to see, take the factory(?) and the few people there. I love the one who's fishing, it seems perfectly fitting with the emptyness of the city.

Then lastly, the colourwork; great. From every detail in front to the far lands in the back, just great.

While I am typing this I'm thinking how to not give this a 10/10 by finding anything I don't like, but I really can't find anything bad, your 10 is well deserved, good job!

10/10 5/5, keep it up!

I think the most important thing here is that with this artwork, especially, I tried to imagine a scene and work off that. It helps in that case because you're already imagining a world in your head, thus the details seem more natural. Like I said earlier - there are colors I would have wished to have used, which I hope to use in my other artworks.
And cheers, I'm still figuring out kinks in actionscript and haven't even begun art assets but this is the art direction I will be using.
