I think this would be a vision of Mars after being terraformed and settled by humans
Vaelto Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2015
so far away both in space and time

It is great to see what Mars looked like before it was trashed. Thx for the vision

Looks a bit like a futuristic version of NY.

It's so awesome.

Wow, this is an incredible work you have there. I'm browsing around for images of Mars and possible city scapes that can help inspire me in this Sci fi novel that I'm currently writing. This is an awesome depiction. It almost looks like a city inspired by New York in many ways, and yet very unique in the way that you portrayed the red planet. ^^

Well, as hand-drawn pieces go, this turned out really well. Very nice job.

Liquid water exits on Mars but then sublimes almost as quickly as it reaches the surface, this due to Mars low atmospheric pressure--it's almost a vacuum. Like being in the Earth's atmosphere above 100,000 feet in altitude. You'd need a pressure suit to survive. Of course your fanciful city could be imagined to be a city from a remote past on Mars when the atmosphere may have been denser and intelligent life prospered. But VERY fanciful a la Ray Bradbury.

We can still only dream of the day when an image like this could be taken with a camera. Nicely done!

I have featured it in an article about plausible science fiction as it would have been too much reading if I didn't place any images in it and this one definitely fits! [link]

That is FREAKY! It's so good you'd swear that it really belongs there (on mars). 'Ey.....maybe that could be where Throttle was born, he comes off as a bit of a city boy.

I am having issues finding jobbies

Do you have any advise :_:
Etoli Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2007
Hmm. . . I know you've gotten your website up and running, and that's the big 'un that's a must-have for industry professionals. Do you have a demo reel made? Something flashy/ooh-ahh that will catch their eye? If not, I'd say get familiar with some tricks in after effects, put your very best work together, make it look good, and then get that up on your website where it will catch the eye of recruiters.
Make sure to have your contact info on EVERYTHING. Um. . . hmm, updated resume, etc. And . . . I'd say craigslist is a good place to start searching for available positions. This could depend on where you're living right now, too. . . there's alot of work (mostly in game art) openning up in LA and Irvine/Santa Ana/Newport areas. I'd start sending your portfolio/resume/cover letter out to as many places as possible if you haven't already. Where have you looked into so far?
Pinkuh Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Just about everywhere....

What I normaly do is find a list of developers in an area and go down that list and start e-mailing

I don't have a list of cali developers though... do you know where I would find one?

amazing landscape!!!
xnsdvd Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2007   Photographer
I'm stupidificated!!

Wee bits of advice though:
Put all the little specks of light on a single layer, then duplicate it, then gaussian blur it. Should give you a nice effect.

Bump up the contrast a little :p

But i must say once again: I'm stupidificated!!
simo-shingo Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2007
wow.......... o____________o
Chelsee Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2007
Hmm... after savoring the warm pinks and oranges, I realized you had that subtle little use of grays in the shadows that I love so well... Very daunting and gleaming city! I'd love to see the pencil sketch it came from!
Pinkuh Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
It didn't come from a pencil sketch...

I honestly just kinda drew a grid and went to town
