Belle image ! Bon travail ! Félicitations !

Whauw,this is an amazing vieuw and very nice hard work !!
I wrote you for my amateurfilm (SF) for you other picture, but this one seems even better for my film.
If you are ok for letting me use it (it will be a nice SF story with one year of hard work) could you erase the ship at the left side. Otherwise it cant be a vieuw for a moving film you see.
Will mention naturally your name hé.
Many greetings
Philip and Nadine

Looking at this in a dark room from about 2 metres, it almost looks like a window looking onto a cityscape.
Pretty intense close-up as well.
Really well done!

It just looks brilliant. How do you manage to get this level of realism?

Hi, I absolutely love your work, I imagine visions of the future all the time along with many other people around the world, and I can see similar scenes, there is a top quality website called which is full of conspiracy, Armageddon and end times prediction threads, hundreds of thousands of people use the message boards for civilised discussions every day, who are not artistic at all but they will connect with your artwork like it was one of there own visions, just as I have done.

I am putting together a thread for the website with an emphasis on the fact that if millions of people around the world have such vivid imagination, dreams and vision of the future, then surely looking beyond all the end of the world prophesy almost proves in a way that the future is still to come in one form or another.

I am asking you for your permission to feature your artwork along with around twenty other artists, on the site, in the thread, with strict instructions not to copy it, and with full recognition to you, so that people can appreciate the dreams and visions of others and perhaps look beyond the panic of the demise of the human race, with all the Armageddon discussion and be prepared to fight for a better way of life for all.

There is no financial gain or any other benefit for me or anyone else by doing this, it is simply to get exposure for your artistic vision, and help others take a look outside the box.

I won't feature your work without permission and I will link you to the thread if it is given.

Kind regards, Ed
rich35211 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Sure you can post my art on the site and thanks for you feature. If you can also give links to my deviant page or facebook page:)
DevineDeviant Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks so much, I will send you the link when I actually get around to writing the thread, I have been a lot busier than I expected. Regards Ed.

How much RAM do your PCs have? Or how much does the one with the most have?
Akifan Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Great piece, I'd much rather see sci-fi cg compositions that portray a hopeful and advanced state of civilization rather than destruction and decay, and this piece sums up a really great feeling of awe and bright future. Kudos

This looks... I don't have words. First I was like: ohmigood, please learn me this! Then I was like: oh wait, no chance i will ever be able to...!

Stunning. Although, the building on the right, to which the big orange-lit road is leading - its perspective looks to be off.
StellaTheStarDesign Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
fantastic job!
overseer Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012   Digital Artist
That is utterly unbelievable. And I believe it. Once you get beyond the 250 layers even a dual core is starting to sweat. The detail is stunning my eyes can't decide where to jump next!

Awesome! You really have to create a tutorial on how you do it!

This is so perfect, it's unreal. I love the lightning, the jet contrail, all the shades of light in the sky, the variations in the building styles as well as the variety of lighting in the city. It looks like something real. You just keep this kind of work up and you'll be rich one day or at the least, famous.
