Departures by ARTek92 Departures by ARTek92
This matte painting I've done a while ago for the new band called Zeroplane. It has been used as the album cover for their debut album 'Departures'. Hope you like it.

Also, I wanted to thank Sobaku-no-Sarah for the awesome stock images.

That looks amazing *___* It reminds me of a city in a video game called Mass Effect :)

Wow, now that's really something. Nice to look at, not too dark, and I like how you don't hide the city architecture with all these street or window lights. The sunrise adds a new perspective on the city skyline as many future city images I've seen on dA are composed at night or sunset where the lights could drown out the detail. Great job!

Like the lighting... but it reminds me EXACTLY of a work by Dylan Cole [link]
And sadly the perspective of the left front tower is totally not fitting the image =(
Apart from that nice try :judge:

For this image I used a technique called matte painting. Now, I could write a long description what it is but there is very detailed article here, check it out :P

PS it is not a noobish question at all

Well, I used around 8 images for the sky and the city, relighted them, stiched them together and painter over them quite a bit - so they are not painted from scratch. Similar thing with the buildings, only the further buildings are fully painted. Hope that helps :)

Ohhh i get it now :lol:.So ur geting a LOT of pic put them together.Then start painting some small details(ai the light,the shadows) and make them blend together(and in my understanding u are also making some part of the building to make them look more sci fi).I got to say it has some amazing results :D.Again thanks for all ur help and time asnwering my questions :D!!!!!!!Maybe i will give a try one day it seams realy intresting way of making art :).

It is not always small details, sometimes whole part of the image is painted.
PS I'm glad I could help. :)
