This painting began as a thumbnail I doodled at five in the morning some weeks ago, and then, last week, I sat down to finish it. I didn't have anything in mind for it really, just an experimentation and practice, with some fitting reference images I found in my "study folder". The theme of it is rather unusual, coming from me, but it doesn't lack color at least. No color—no fun!

Well, the original size of this artwork is 5400 x 3151 pixels (28MB), but I made a smaller version to upload on deviantart :nod:

Yeah, messing around with file sizes can be weird.
But you did fine.

This is really cool! I immediately got fascinated by all the color tones and the atmosphere they create together.

Not sure if it was intentional, but for me it looks like the hooded man on the left might be a criminal (or at least a wanted man for something he did). Because at the right of the painting, there are these warm, bright color tones... but at the left, everything suddenly becomes dark and cold. There also seem to be wanted posters hanging at the wall, but I can't see it in details. So the hooded man walking there, with his hidden face turned away from other people, kinda gives me that interesting criminal vibe.

This painting looks rough and abstract, yet you manage to tell a whole story with it. :)

I imagine it's gonna be paintings like that which can help movies and videogames set a specific, fundamental atmosphere before they go into details.

Thank you! Yeah, he does look suspicious, doesn't he? I wonder what he's up to.

And, indeed, this is pretty much what concept art looks like: rough, but gets the idea through :nod:
