E.O.W. entry for Conceptart.org

Pretty satisfied with this one. Took 6 hours (plus 5 for the revisions), no ref. All done in Photoshop 7.
The ‘Novgorod- 47’ Prototype testing facility is the most technology-advanced institution on Hyplochia. When the 12th Imperial War broke out in the year 2450, this facility proved to be one of the best testing grounds for the then infamous tactical combat droid ‘Seu’.
Currently, unmanned sentry drones are being tested since Novgorod-47 has fallen under control of ‘The Elders’.

edit: I just retouched this super old piece quite a bit because it was selected to be used as a front cover on a book title about how to paint Sci-Fi. ^^

Here is the old one for comparison because I overwrote this deviation:

I've been scouring art reference to get ideas for my comic, this image just gave me an idea for a scene. All your art work, especially the cityscapes are fantastic !

I like the different areas of illumination, sunlight vs artificial light. it tells the a story about areas of the setting that you cant see.

floating spheres are reminiscent of things in the matrix but that doesn't hurt the subject just makes you think a little.

You should write a book on how to paint sci-fi. I would buy it for sure. Great atmosphere in your art work.

It's alive: Everybody and everything looks to be doing or going to do something.
It feels good: the lighting is pretty nice the mix of sunlight and fluorescents is really interesting and you did a really good job on it.
