One day I'll live somewhere inside one of those buildings, maybe when the earth will be suffocated by our dung (every kind of)! ;)

Hey, thank you!
C'mon! You have some cool paintings in your gallery, too. It's only a matter of brushes and a bit of luck.

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of brushes are you using?
I usually use square ones for vehicles/structures and random, grungy ones for ground texture and bgs.

I used a brushset of Levente Peterffy :iconleventep: who was so kind to share it with us some time ago. For the architectural shapes I used the brush called "Forme échantillonneé 2". For the lights there's one, too and the highlights are made with a simple small round one.
You can download it from my dropbox here [link] (I will delete it in a few days, so get it now, please :-))
Happy painting ;-)

Oh, thank you so much!
I had a PC crash recently and need to expand my brush list.

Great image :) I love how it manages to keep the fantasy feel even though it's obviously sf, if it makes sense :D

Thank you very much!
I think it's due to the way I start paintings. Call it a kind of personal style, or better the incapability to do something else ;-)

:rofl: You just pinpointed what I have been feeling in case of some artists who stubbornly stick to one style... Sometimes it really looks like inability to venture outside their own bounds :D
But in your case I think it's can be called a true personal style ;)

Yes, I know what you mean. There are lots around, but sometimes I grudge them on it. I really would like to have more the ability to stick to one style. This would allow me to express new ideas more easily without dealing with style and technique. Unfortunately I'm too impatient ...
On the other hand this made me a quiet skilled allrounder. Good. Stop whining, Frank. :D

Very cool, Frank.

Pardon my ignorance, but is this done with a tablet, or with custom brushes in PS, or am I way off in left field?

Hi Mark! Thank you!

It's done with a tablet and with custom brushes (If you use a tablet you're actually using the same brushes as without).

Cool. Thanks for the info, Frank. I may look into buying a tablet soon, but I've absolutely know idea what is good, or how to use...oh, and no money either! I see that a lot of people use Wacom, but that just means it popular, not necessarily good I guess...

I really recommed Wacom, because of the good quality of the Intous product line. But it's expensive, and maybe the Bamboo series will do the job, too. Just consider, that if you get along with digital painting and you like it, the you probably want to upgrade.
And don't go under DIN A4 size (errm ... that's aprox. 9"x12" - hey, are canadians metric or what?).
After some days of getting used to the tablet, digital painting will reflect your ability to paint traditionally. But from there everything is possible ...

Cool. Thanks. Yes, we are metric here in Canuckland - although I was in the very first class/year in high school that switched over to metric. I was in Grade 12 or 13 at the time - it was back in the seventies. So, I can do either/or!!

I've never painted, but did do some sketching a while back. If I make the move, I might just start with some abstract things, and work my way up to sketching and painting!

Thanks Frank!

Then, I think a Bamboo should do the job ...
