The Urban Explorer

By Luches
5K Favourites
Once known as a retail and entertainment hub, now a shadow of it past glory as nature begin to retake the ruins

Yet still it attract tourists from all over, as a must stop area for any ruin explorers.

But do take precautions, while in the past, it might be one of the safest place on earth, but now, it will only be safer with a weapon or two at hand.

~Artist note~
This is a piece I did around 5-6 months ago, it was meant for another project but plans changed and I got to post it now :D

It is strange how a few months after I "completed" it, I still end up making major changes to it after I was prepared to post it up a few days ago.

Hehehe let see if anyone recognize this place

Woooow i remember, Shaw House and Shaw Centre. Intersection of Orchard and Scotts, not too much remains of the office buildings in your art and the vegetation overwhelming the mall, i was there in a trip to Singapur, go to see a movie with friends in the Lido cinema but i don't remember what movie. By the way, an amazing and magnificent art from a piece of a beatiful and cosmopolitan city.

Thank you

Unfortunately that area change pretty rapidly^^ Will probably be unrecognisable in a few years time

Sorry for that, the price we pay for that we call progress. Sometimes the changes are for good other are for worse. But something is for sure, i always enjoy your work. Please keep it fine and better than ever.

I am alright with the price for progress, but sometime it's annoying to know sometime down the road people will look at this current piece and point out the difference or can't recognise it ^^

Hi. You're amazing! If you could take a quick second to answer this, you would honestly change my life: What do I physically need to do during practice, each day, to eventually be able to create something like this?

Can you please break down exactly what one extremely motivated beginner student would need to do, each & every day when he or she sits down to practice, in order to create these incredible photorealistic 2d digital drawing/paintings?

People just say 'Practice harder..' But I do not know "exactly" what this entails. 

Can you maybe make me, like, a list or something?!! So I can then go out and explore those topics? Or at least tell me what I need to physically be doing with my practice time so I can become great as you are?  

If there's any books/DVDs/tutorials that really helped you become great, please share!

Thanks for the help!

Very original for a post apocalyptic world. Looks very interesting, and I'm curious to learn more about this.

This is awesome it reminds me of The Last of Us
Luches's avatar
Hahah quite a few ppl had mentioned that to me before, although I did it way earlier than The Last of Us,
I am more inspired by the Japanese artists who did it abandoned tokyo images
