Looking Down


Hey, so I'm feeling down. Did a piece in a similar sketchy way to how I did the Looking Up cover art, kind of like a follow up but not really.

Thank you, sorry, it's fine, love you all <3

I mean it's clearly ironic but if you're putting this under fine art you should expect the score you get lol.

The perspective, the colours you used, the quality... just WOW
This is really awesome shye :D

Shye responds:

Thank you c:

The perspective and exaggeration kind of gives the effect of an extra wide-angle lens. It's kind of uncomfortable, almost claustrophobic, I love that. The warm reds and oranges, the really lonely and almost reserved blues and vibrant purples are amazing. It almost feels like the warmer colours are struggling to not be lost between the colder ones.

The lines are really loose and rough, and I think in some cases it takes away from the piece and really adds to it in others. If the lines making up some of the buildings were more continuous (particularly the focal one), I feel like they would have been more effective, for example. However, the more loose-looking lines on the trees in the top right are wonderful.

I could go on for days, but bleh.

Great stuff, one of the best things I've seen on here.

Shye responds:

Thank you so much for the detailed review! In retrospect I agree with you on the messy linework, I wanted to use it in an exaggerated way to create this feeling of giving up, but yeah some parts are very incoherent and just scribbles lol. Maybe would have worked better in a more natural environment but that wasnt quite what I was going for. Either way though I'm happy to have made something of your liking :)
