City of Colours by Wolfie-chama City of Colours by Wolfie-chama
Conceptual illustration, the original base painting by my classmate Yu Xuan: [link] .

First time painting so much glass, nearly died. orz
I focused more on getting the colours right. Also tried painting with a default hard brush and gradient tool only. Halfway I switched from Photoshop CS3 to Painter in order to prevent a broken neck. =____=;;;;

This was quite enjoyable to paint despite having a bad flu and pressing project deadlines. This painting was also featured as Image of the Day by ImagineFX on 8th February 2011.

Hope you like this~


Painted in Photoshop CS3&4 and Painter XI

Colour study just takes some reading (whether from artbooks or online tutorials), and lots of practice. The best is to study from life, even painting an apple in different lighting will teach you a great deal on form, light and colour changes. Hope this helps. : ]

sweet gods, that's breathtaking and so beautiful I want to stare at it forever. It's also VERY inspiring story-wise... And I always wanted to be able to draw backgrounds like these, but always was failing TT^TT So oficially that's my favourite piece I've seen for months here on DA! :love:
