99 Red Balloons



Based on the lyrics of "99 Red Balloons" (To see the lyrics, go here: [link] )

This is actually an idea that I attempted two years ago, but at the time I didn't have the skills to finish it satisfactorily. I spent something like 10 hours on the first version before giving up ^^;. ...but I thought I'd have another go at the concept for my Digital Image Design class (the same class I did Tron: The Virus and My Universe for). It's a fantastic feeling to have finally finished this.

As part of the course, we were asked to try as many techniques as we could. I ended up using a bit of photography for the buildings, with heavy repainting. :XD: The people in the city must have thought I was such a tourist running around taking photos of buildings! The rest of the picture is all CG painted in my normal technique.

^_< ...and before you ask, yes, there are 99 red balloons.

*EDIT* Details available here: Details
