Cityscape by overdrivezero Cityscape by overdrivezero
Todays practice.
Actually, this one was really hard to do.
This is the first time I paint a cityscape by the way.
I can't remember from where I found the picture I used as reference, but I think it is Budapest.
I know there are several perspective errors but after 10h of work I was about to get crazy with this painting, so I decided to let it go.
Anyway, I hope you like it!

You did a fantastic job on the values and colors (you had me fooled, at first glance i thought it was a photo) so it's a damn shame that you let the perspective go like that. Next time use perspective guides like lines or rulers or whatever, because it's too bad to waste good work on a painting gone bad because of lack of good fundamentals.

I'm only telling you this because I'm pissed off at myself for being a lazy fucker and not paying respect to the basic stuff, so there you go.

Thanks dude!
I'm happy because lots of people told me that it looks like a photo when they see the small image.

Although I do agree with everything you said about the rest. I suck on drawing any kind of landscape and perspective issues.
But I won't waste more effort working on pieces that are not well established.

I feel your pain man, laziness is my worst enemy!

When I first looked at this, I thought it was a photo. It's way better than any cityscape I could do. :D

There are some mistakes, but I'm also pleased with some aspects of the piece.

That is awesome. You know this looks like a photo as a thumbnail, and in full view? It looks like a photo after being run through a couple of PhotoShop filters. :XD:

Yeah, it is rather unrefined and has more of the look of a really quick speedpaint (not that that's a bad thing!) ~ but you've done the structures and painted the lighting very convincingly that the overall composition works very well :)

Keep it up mate!

I'm working on this kind of speedpainting style these days.

Gladly you are not offended by the sophisticated degree of nastiness I usually use. Ambiguity FTW!



Bloody hell, I have to stop with that booze! All I talk is nonsense! :drunk:

And of course i don't find you offensive. You silly billy.
Booze is there to make sober people laugh. lol

Booze is really cool! Specially when you are trying to do things like bowling and ice skating.
You have to try.
I agree with you. I'm being too formal. For now on I'm gonna be totally indiscreet! =D

I'm privy to the advantages of booze oh too well. But i don't recommend ice skating while drunk. Ice + drunk = lots of boo boos on your butt from falling

wow, very good, I was curious when I first clicked on the thumbnail whether or not it WAS a photo. Some of your verticals seem a bit wonky, but as I can't see the reference photo I can't really compare.

There are LOTS of errors on this one. But I simply couldn't look anymore to this image. I worked for like 10h to finish this.
Then I simply decided to let it go =D.
I was probably very very stupid in the way I painted this but I think the result is not as bad as I expected.
