bit of an odd one, it's been hanging around for months, bugging me into finishing it, 5mins here, 5mins there, like an annoying cat, glad to put it to rest

Been slowly catching up on what everyone's been up to lately... and then I find this magnificent gem!

FAVED! :+fav:

What I like about it... It has a sense of sharp austerity combined with the sense of a truly *living* city. The sharp and clean, uncluttered lines of the architecture as it reaches into the sky as though ever striving... and yet, all around there is flowing rivers that pour out into terrific waterfalls thundering who knows how far down into a chasm... as well as lush, green, and meticulously tended forests. And these aren't small trees when you really look at the scale here. These are like three-hundred year old oak trees! I can only imagine what this city looks like at ground level! I love it!

I like that 'sharp austerity' comment.  I think it captures the essence of the piece.

No problem. To convey what a piece evokes in me is something I feel is only right to do.

What architectural style is dominant in this quixotic image, definitely not deconstructivism?

Great Cityscape.
But I ask myself, what these spiderweb-like lines are.

Hey spyro, another great piece of art! Seeing those steps makes me feel I could do this too... simply because you make it seem so easy! Damn you! :XD:

Nevertheless, it's awesome, and still has that very spyro-feel to it. Impressive!

That's fantastic! It's great to be able to see how you create this stuff. I have to ask - how do you create those perspective grids?

cheers, with a 2pt paintbrush (looks really thin at 300dpi), the old, click shift click, with all brush options off, use guides to set up a vanishing point outside the canvas area
