Vaelidian Canyon City

439 Favourites
Hi! This time we're looking at an alien city in canyon on other planet. It has a strange architecture with a lot of tall towers and curved walls =] 
This commission is for The-Verpardess . I spent a lot of time trying to put things together in this picture =]

I hope you find this interesting, and have a nice day!

For the record, your gallery is just breath-taking... Really fantastic pieces within! ^^

Nice. These two glossy bridges... really good. We talked about your water and you told me how you did it. I think you used the same technique here or? This (copy and flip the things above the horizon and use it like a mirror). Really well done. I have to try this out. That really makes your paintings so powerful.

One little thing I ve noticed: Everything fits together but this texture of the rock (right corner) sidetracks a bit the harmonious atmosphere of the painting. But that‘s critique at the highest stage. However, a nice, beautiful painting. Nod :) (Smile)

Thanks! I used similar technique - I selected the bridge surface and painted on top of it with fast straight brush strokes. Then I just added a texture I made with square brush =]

Thanks again for the feedback! Yes, this texture is a bit odd, I can see now =D

Thank you for the explanation. I am always happy to see new techniques and I really love it to try them out! 

Have a nice day!

Oh damn this came out so much better than I thought it would! :la: and really close to what I was imagining as well, but perhaps even better than what I had a mind! :XD: (which isnt a bad thing of course, heh) but this really did come out beautifully! Goes to show how peaceful and pristine Vaelidius was before the second-coming Karnifex invasion. I always wanted to see the 'canyon city' brought to life, so this is wonderful to see done for my story! ^^ I love how you balanced all the flora and rocky terrain to blend in with the buildings. The rivers look so nicely done and fit in perfectly with this landscape! I guess what stands out most are those beautiful looking bridges - the shine on them just looks so wicked! I really adore this piece so much. I've definitely needed a bit of help from other artists to help bring more life to my project and I'm glad I found you to help me along with visualizing more of these ideas. So again, thank you so much for the wonderful commission! I appreciate it very much! :la:

This is a nice piece. I like this utopian architecture and color palette. Those twin bridges look phenomenal too!

Love the Metallic bridges. They are sooo shiny.

What great architecture design, and I love how the light catches on the shinny material of the bridges.  :D
