SteamCity by NatMonney SteamCity by NatMonney
Concept of an old steam punk city, full of activities, sadness, pollution and heavy saturated atmosphere, but the sunlight can pierce this steam to bring something warm and sweet!

very interesting piece that I found on #getwatchers. I found it drawing me in. The smoke makes it seem almost like a photo, and I found it quite intriguing that the opposite of my expectations was done: dark shadows in the foreground, with lighter detailing in the background. This is the reverse of what is commonly done, and it adds quite a bit to the piece.

The only part I found difficult is the water under the bridge: doesn't seem to flow under, but up to instead. can you dim the par or shadow it under the bridge to give it depth?
What do you think?

This is a great piece. Your detail is impeccable and the originality of this piece is the highlight. Instead of a roughly done concept or obvious gold steam punk look you went for a highly detailed reality steam punk. The smoke and texture add a little spice but nothing is overdone which can be hard to accomplish for many people. The only thing I think could make this more conceptually strong is if the light were coming from the foreground but the darkness of the buildings still showed through. I feel like a lot of the detail is hiding in the back and it would be interesting to see a different version showcasing your detail up close and personal.
Im jealous of your skillz. Keep it up:clap:

have I mentioned that these are pretty neat?? I do agree with psychometron though, the foreground could use some more definition. But not too much
