Sky Towers by steve-burg Sky Towers by steve-burg
Speed Painting - about 1 hour or so...

With my new commute through hellish L.A. traffic, it's about all I can manage during the week! :D

So what did you use to make this? did you use the lasso tool at all?

steve-burg Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2011  Professional Filmographer
I used the polygonal lasso to make some of the bigger shapes :)

And then what? brush over it with paint brushes or what? ahah I MUST KNOW. I want to learn this. It looks alot more complex then just a lasso

Atmosphere definitely helps - and can hide some mistakes too ;)

from what I'm remembering from the one single time I drove through L.A. (and leaving it behind me fast and far) this picture here fits pretty well to the literally tangible outside dusty and smoggy atmosphere I experienced. I only wish the traffic had been that clear as in your painting :)
So, intended or not, your awesome speedpainting is a great reference to your current driving-load on the one hand...
and on the other hand it a great atmospheric capture of a far away future time. The design of these buildings and their illumination by the setting (or dawning) sun are great!
An hour you said?
*sigh*

L.A. is a god-forsaken hell-hole. And more and more people arriving all the time :confused: I notice a LOT of license plates from outside California. Maybe it's people hoping to find employment? It is like "too many people climbing into the life-boat" :lol: Whatever, it's a mess!

Lovely sepia colors... Either it's early in the morning or that place has the worst smog problem I've see in a while.

Smog or sunrise/sunset? It might be both! :lol:

Awesome! Looks very forerunner (from halo). A wallpaper in 2560x1600 or 2560x1440 would be really cool.

I guess the forerunner architecture uses 45 degree angles - I can see the similarity :)
I think that resolution you mention is bigger than the original image size :lol:

I will do my best! The added driving time is definitely cutting into the available time for making art :(

Neato. Smoggy, but neato. Neat color and shapes to the buildings. Really captures that late afternoon/almost sunset feel.
It's too bad the intricately detailed mob of genetically modified, sentient warrior penguins is completely obscured by the ground clouds.....

Smog has its visual appeal, that's for sure! :D
The penguin army has marched to the base of the tower and laid siege! :lol:
