tigaer-design.com 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.

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
