Fatal Disturbance by thewallpostings Fatal Disturbance by thewallpostings
One of my first endeavors with Illustrator. Just finished it today. The theme and the colors are based on an older Photoshop piece I did last year, although I added explosions to add some points of interest and dramatic effect in the scene. FYI, the buildings are close models of actual ones in downtown Los Angeles.

Certainly looks like a terrorist attack, although I didn't plan it that way. Don't mean to offend any L.A. dwellers, I love that city, although I used to live in Orange County (maybe I'll do a piece on that next).

P.S.: this is a fix-it revision. Turns out it doesn't display at a decent size when searched at the web.

Reminded me - on the smaller view - of a mockery of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds"

Looked like a lot of firey birds were shooting out of the tree.

Which is, perhaps, far more menacing than birds that just sit and stare and attack you sometimes to death...

I like it very much.
The colors are obnoxious. Love it.

Lovely. Reminds me of old videogames. Terrorist attack or alien attack. I don't know.

Could even be fireworks. I actually focused more on the buildings when I saw it as a thumbnail.

this is a very good piece, especially for one of your first attempts in illustrator, it demonstrates good control over the program.

however, there are a few problems non-illustrator related. There are major perspective issues, each building has its own vanishing point which really throws off the cohesiveness of the piece. On sections such as the windows on the left building, it is apparent you just copied a row of windows, thus giving it no perspective at all. You could try grouping the windows and applying a very minimal warp to them to fix this, or, using the pathfinder tool, re-define the vertical edges.

Computers are a good tool, but they should never be used to cut corners at the expense of the quality of the piece.

Overall though, very nice work, just keep at it.

i'm disturbed by the lack of comments yet overwhelming amount of favourites on this quite fantastic piece. Superbly executed (if that's the right word to use) especially since this is one of your first uses of illustrator you say? Wonderful work, and thoroughly deserved of a DD (congrats by the way)

I'm just disappointed more people haven't left encouraging comments. :shrug:
