112K Views proudly presents: THE CITY OF LIGHTS


First of all, look at this pic as if it were some sort of concept art. It was a huge playground for me to try out a lot of things. So i maintained the concept art look and did not work too accurate. Nonetheless the style kinda works.

This one was actually planned to be a collab piece. Unfortunately nothing happened. Even with the lost collab i thought it could become a cool piece if i would finish it up alone. So i did. There is no big story behind it. I just thought i would play a bit with composition and lighting.


As you can see it is a not too detailed painting. In terms of photorealism. Most of you know that i never seriously try to work photorealistic. With this pic my only goal was to create a good composition and a striking lighting. I maintained a concept art like look since i was thinking that it could help the overall atmosphere to come together.

Would be a nice setting for a futuristic Final Fantasy or Star Wars game, maybe spinoff. Simply mind-blowing!

This looks like the Star Wars planet Coruscant! I love the light effects!

"Not too detailed"?  Could've fooled me.  Then again, I'm a sucker for futuristic cities, so I hope you'll forgive me for getting a little slack-jawed in the face of your art.

So yeah.  Fantastic work, without a doubt.

Beautiful image ! Good job ![link]
I can imagine a lone mystic, that roams the streets of a city, recalling the world he once knew before it changed. A very nice picture, and a good example of putting light, color and objects into one picture. =)

I love the lone, shabby little sign stuck hanging off the railings, an interesting contrast with the gleaming city

Simply amazing mate. You've now inspired me to try doing some concept art for a futuristic city, like I've always wanted to do!

Keep up the great work!
