I dub thy city "Ringling!"

Beautiful, beautiful city, but I must ask, what would the rings be for?

its just the style of the architect who made them... ehem... (me)
just trying out something new.. never before seen.. interesting shapes in unusual places.
The main big ring is a tourist spot and you can get to the top. maybe theres a restaurant there.. or a little hotel..

thanks.. im glad you like it. Maybe some day... i shall re-paint this awful painting with better quality and realism.

If you think that's an awful painting, you need to get your head checked. That is an incredible painting, even after I compared it to all of your other works! You are an amazing artist, and you shouldn't let anybody, including yourself, tell you otherwise.

allright.. thanks.
But i think i can judge myself however i like.. because i see soo much guys even younger than me who make same progress in some months what i had to do in like 5 years.. and thats super depressing. In this competitive world - only the strongest survive. :/

I'm not saying you can't judge yourself any way you like. I'm just trying to boost your spirit some, because I think you're a great artist, that's all.

dont worry.. as the 15 year old masters demotivate me frompainting, they also boost my motivation to paint more. thats why (i think) ive been doing more longer sessions lately..

thanks once again..

this ring concept made a bit of an impression on me.
Mind if I use this as a source of inspiration?

Dekus Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2010
hmm yeah.. as long as you mention the original source of inspiration.. you know.. :)

im very glad you liked it! thnx!

back in the old days i had fresh ideas.. now i just do crappy cliche box buildings and shit.. :(

That seems almost a poetic reference to growing old. As you become more experienced and jaded,the brilliance of imagination begins to fade.
As a matter of fact, I happen to like some of your cliche box buildings.
If you don't like it though. try thinking outside of the box. XD

yeah.. nowadays i make less works.. and try to think of the concepts a bit more.. designs. and so on.. But actually that's kinda bad.. because before i did more speedpaintings and quick sketches, thus rapidly developing and stimulating my mind and for it to think about different designs..

thank you for your advice man.. i guess i have to bring myself to basics again and start on speedpainting once again.. damn..

insparation is a funny thing. For me, I only feel like drawing when Im in contact with childhood friends. if for whatever reason we don't talk in a while, I just cant draw.

some of your art reminds me of a building I got the chance to explore. The Bio Sphere 2 in Arizona. [link]

Thank you very much dude! ;)
As i said to kheng, the ring is a, as you see, gigantic architectural structure that is the main design feature in this city. It actually is a giant hotel. the higher the room, the more it costs and the better view you get out the window. ;) but you dont see the windows.. the material is made so that it looks like really shiny metal.

Dekus Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2006
yea.. its very fun when you design stuff and you get carried away sometimes, then you start to think of how the thing your designing is working, the 3d-form of it, hidden parts..
I have though this city from all directions and angles, you see just the 50% of it, the other 50% is underground. as you see, the ring is not complete. 30% of it is underground ;)

damn.. i got carried away again.. :D

Artists are most of the time going for dark sunset or sunrise settings, I rarely see 'midday' paintings and such, you pulled this off amazingly.

I love it.

Dekus Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2006
really? i have seen all kinds of possible lighting conditions..
or wait.. ah, i see.. the thing is that its soo easy to just paint the silhouette of the city in front of a sunset.. many new artists use that simple technique ;)

yea... actually.. i did the moon thats on top right in just few seconds!! i know its hard to believe, but i just made a round selection, picked an airbrush, picked random texture for it and made a few strokes! thats all.. its a very powerful technique ;)
