Plateau City by steve-burg Plateau City by steve-burg
I've been quite busy finishing up a publishing project, but I managed to find at least a little time to experiment with custom shapes some more.

This is a quick image, and experiment really (as opposed to a finished picture). But I haven't posted anything for a while so here it is, for better or worse!

Custom shapes are an incredible time saver. The shapes I used for this painting were created from other painting of mine, although just about any source will do.

Such a cool dynamic between the foreground and the background.

Realy looks like you are a Big Fan of Syd Mead, it realy looks like his Style....Wow, glad that i found your Gallery
Shure i'll watch you :handshake:

Or is Steve-burg only a Alias ? And you are syd Mead ? Its maybe a good way from keeping away all those crazy Fans

cause in your Gallery there are a lot of " Syd Mead Style " Illustrations . . .
I'm a Big Fan

Wow! I like the abstract-ness of it. How did you get the textures on the building? layers w/ a low opacity? gives a neat effect

The basic shapes start as flat areas of color, then additional layers at low opacity give the surfaces some variation. That's how the lighting falloff on the foreground tower was done, for example :nod:

Thanks for the tip, when you lay out an area of color - is it like a filled shape or something? or some kind of abstract brush stroke maybe ... that might be interesting :idea:
