Citylife by jake Citylife by jake
Photoshop and illustrator. Some of the elements used were handdrawn and traced in illustrator, other were photos I've taken myself or dug up from somewhere.

The motive is somewhat conceptual . All the noise, mess and lack of decent nature in the city makes people and animals go out in the nature. Hench the planes, zeppelins, birds leaving the city. The residents, however, get caught up in the loudness and ends up a couch potato. At least, that's the message here. :P

Be sure to view the full version for extra goodness. :)

UPDATE: 10/19/06 - I've created extra sizes for this Wallpaper due to popular demand - the new sizes are:

citylife_2048x1536.jpg (4:3)
citylife_1920x1200.jpg (widescreen)
citylife_1600x1200.jpg (4:3)
citylife_1400x1050.jpg (4:3)
citylife_1280x1024.jpg (5:4)
citylife_1024x768.jpg (4:3)


Since I can't figure out how to update this deviation with the new sizes, they are avaliable for download at my site at this following [link] :)

Really cool, jake. I love the way you combined loudspeakers with buildings and the way you integrated that sitting-on-the-couch man between them.
That citylife text is awesome too, could make a cool logo! ;)

Where did you get the stocks from?

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D.(oibyrd's daily devs) feature :winner: ! congrats! :clap:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists with a fair amount of traffic to their work) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA. *PLZ DO KEEP IN MIND - some of the features are quite popular and obviously don't need extra help - however - I enjoy posting them because they inspire other artists. Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo :heart:
