Cyber City by SeanNash Cyber City by SeanNash
I watched a couple of environment art tutorials this morning and challenged myself to try something new. I love sci fi city's and always admire environment art so thought I'd give it a go. I wanted to create a kinda dingy part of a Cyber City, With gloomy colors I wanted to try and create an atmosphere. With plenty of lights and detail I found doing this a lot of fun as I'm used to creating characters usually, I didn't wanna go overboard with people but just added some to create that feeling that the city is alive.

I used Corel Painter 12 - And Corel Photoshop Pro X5

Textures from - Cgtextures.com

Hi :) I really love your artwork here. I'm curating a blog themed around cyperpunk for a postgrad project and would like to link your image to my blog. The conditions of the project are that all media must adhere to strict copyright, so I would love it if you could give me permission to use the image. I will be able to link back to your deviantart profile and will credit you as the artist. Cheers. Tim

Hello Mr. Nash. As usual, you've done an exemplary job on this. The colours portray the melancholy mood you're looking for, and the perspective is good. If you don't mind, I have a few suggestions to improve this. The first thing I noticed is the white lines around everything in the piece. If you are looking to show a light source or highlight individual buildings, I would use a different colour. Maybe a brown or blue or maybe yellow, because using white takes away from the gloom of the picture. Another suggestion would be to either change or remove the car. It like like a 1950s model car, and in a futuristic piece it doesn't fit too well. I would maybe spruce it up to make it more modern, but also put a few rust spots to make it look well used. Possibly even a bullet hole or two, if you're going for a slums look. But overall, you have done a great job with colour and setting and have achieved what you described. Kudos. Also, if I may bother you to do so, can you post a link to some of the tutorials you used for this?

Ah thank you for your comment and thoughts. Yeah as I said its kinda my first big environment piece. So I think I've learned what I can from doing it, so hopefully my next piece will be better with lighting and details and color. The 1950's car originally was a bit more cyber looking, but then I wanted it to feel as though this part of town was so old, and the cyber city was built on top of an old hotel almost like a 1950's cyber city, I wanted to give a big twist on it as there is so many pieces with cyber cars and stuff. But like I said i'll take what I've learned and hopefully improve next time. Thank you for taking the time to get back to me with your thought, I appreciate it very much :aww:

This is fantastic! I love how dark and gritty it feels. The grey/taupe atmosphere is done perfectly. It's hard to believe that this is your first try at a sci-fi setting :wow: I like that the people are more like accents rather than the main focus. Bravo, this is really really awesome.

Thank you so much for your comment :thanks: Yeah I've been wanting to do something like this for a while, and decided to just go for it for some fun! :D

Yeah I didn't want to much focus on the people, but wanted it to feel alive and so they kinda just blend in :) thanks for noticing that :aww:

aww Thank you so much! :hug:

I really do suggest it! I watched some tutorials online which really got me inspired, and before I knew it I was half way through a painting, I found the key is to find all your textures that fit to the piece you want to create :) CGtextures.com was the place for me.

I didn't really have a place in mind tbh, Think its a mix of places, I went to New york and just fell in love with the buildings, but I love china and Tokyo so think I had a mix of places in mind. :aww:

Thank you, At first this piece was really orangy, and had more green but I decided to make it feel a bit more gloomy!

Oh, I adore that trailer! So simple, yet so well made.
Usually, I wouldn't be a fan of orange and green :XD: but I really like how it looks here.
You're really added everything. The futuristic city that's falling apart. The prostitute. A cheap hotel. I wish I knew the story behind this. :)

AH thank you! :XD:
Yeah I kinda go with the flow with my stories, As you said though its almost like the city is falling apart, struggling to survive, which will make some new pieces very interesting for me to work on :D As the story is basically about the city, I've been wanting to write a short story but my writing skills are terrible :hmm: , but a friend of mine has written some books, I may ask him to help out on a short story. I'll have to be extra nice to him lol :petting:

But Yeah i have loooads of new ideas so hopefully I can write some descriptions of the characters so you get to know there backgrounds :B
