Robotropolis

A picture made by a good friend :iconhedgehog-chris: using acrylic paint.

It took him about 6 hours (just painting) to create this 50*70cm big picture.


Thank you very much for this!

(It's a photography of it behind glass, thats why you can see some reflections that are not part of the picture, like those strange "waves" on the bottom)

Current state: Hanging on my wall.

Huh, how did I miss this? This is an awesome shot of Robotropolis, really showing its menacing and gritty allure. I love the sky...it really adds to that impure feeling that the city has. Also, I especially like this because it's an angle you don't often see depicted.

I did and I said it is a real fair trade, because I already gave him 3 of my pics and created one just for him (a little caricture of him, see [link]).

Oh I did, because it is so good! When he presented it to me I really took a close look on it. The acrylic paint also gives it a little relief. He also gave me some nice explanations, for example the dust on the lower left side is suppossed to be smoke in which some electrical stations are working, thats why it is so bright. Also the blue sky is supposed to be lighted by the city, not because you have to see the clouds.
In the brackground also thise little towers (I really should try to make a bigger picture) have a few brush strokes in them. Could be a mistake but I interpreted it as dust around the buildings and it could be also blurred because of the distant.
And the mistake of making Robotniks HQ the tallest building isn't bad! Now it is an eyecatcher and is somehow showing his power.
