A bridge and his city... by NatMonney A bridge and his city... by NatMonney
Here is a concept design I did for a french film director,
Alban Delachenal [link]

That's a picture to illustrate his next project. I really wish he will be able to product it, because that will be awesome!

So, now more about the picture.
The resolution size is in 4K. I did a sketch for the town, and added lots of pictures I found on the web to make this paint very realistic. You can find some parts of Marseille, Venise and Prague (some fantastic cities!!)

Everything is done on photoshop, and I did 10 hours to achieve such a result in 4K.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks for the support! :w00t:

The composition as a whole is very well worked. The city-scape is excellently rendered, and the use of the walkway, a common, powerful technique draws the eye up the image and into the fantastic horizon. I find that the rain and the figures add an element of motion to the image as well. The command of light is impressive, and the far-away city is very realistic. I do think that the strokes of the rain need to be more varied. as it is it seems manufactured. Otherwise, this is another wonderful piece, even in the light of your already impressive portfolio.
What do you think?

Great image, it has an eerie, gaslight feel to it, what awaits on the other side is as mysterious as the departure point.
The muted colors and lighting work great together to invoke a mood.
If i have anything to suggest, it would be that it feels as though the foreground figures,which are being pelted by the rainstorm, are a little too flat in silhuette (at least in the scanned pic).Perhaps a bit of a "wet glow around the edges?.
it just seems a rain this hard should have a more visible impact point in the foreground, a few reflections?
On the whole,these are just minor observations, it's a great image

There's a lot of detail in this, I can tell you spent a lot of time on this. I really like the rain--I like when rain is done this way. The lighting is also very nice, I really like it. It has a soft look to it. The people look good, but I don't think those umbrellas are going to help them much since the rain is blowing sideways. :lol:

Great work!
