City Burn by CalamityChemist City Burn by CalamityChemist
Get off the streets before dark. At night, this city burns.
- -

I had a fun time with this picture, even though it started out really frustrating (i.e. I was a dweeb and couldn’t even manage basic shading for some reason, haha). I harked back to an older style of mine, and it ended up taking sort of an industrial turn, which I enjoyed. Plus, got to play with lighting and paint in some really gritty texture, which I always love doing, haha.

It’s pencil lines + digital coloring, for anyone who’s wondering. Hope you guys like it! :heart:

I would not want to run into that guy alone at night. I'd be like "ooh you're super cool looking also ahhh! *runs away*" seriously though he looks incredible. The shading and lighting effects turned out brilliantly.

I've been working on tons of stuff! Mostly for my animation portfolio. It has been an extremely busy 2 months, with very little time to do personal art. But the term ends in a couple of days, so I'll put up some of my school stuff, and get working on more character art soon! :)

Sweet! :hug: It's as WONDERFUL as a tray of assorted chocolates and sweets with a cup of white chocolate cocoa to see you are doing so well!

So...your animation portfolio...2d animation or 3d?

My portfolio is 2D. No 3D or CGI work yet! I'm still pre-program, so that comes later. :)

SO! Animated anything yet? Or just focusing on the drawing process?

Safety foremost! Remember your goggles!

Your coloring is just incredible. It's so sensuous and subtle; your work positively bleeds atmosphere. What program do you use for your coloring?

Hmmmm I have CS3. I wonder if it's capable of the same richness of color.

Oh, it definitely is. The color capacity is pretty uniform through most of these later Photoshop versions.
