Quick cyberpunk cityscape...about 2 hours in photoshop. Originally based on a photo I took in Seattle, but you would never recognize it anymore ;) Then again, would we recognize the cities we lived in from 100 years ago?
Trying to work on making my textures and strokes more interesting, while at the same time keeping a sense of depth. I revisited the technique I used for the Dwarven Outpost, but with more emphasis on depth and form.
It's a really quick way to work, this was just over an hour.
Been a couple of days since I've been able to paint, but here's a new one. Based on a photo I took in Lynn Canyon in North Vancouver last summer. Took about 2.5 hours, most of that was on the goblin, as I am not really very comfortable painting characters yet.
Here's the source photo, so you can see what I altered and added.
Seth Rutledge is a visual developer and concept artist for the animation and video game industries, a photographer and a coffee snob living in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before he discovered illustration, he received a CSCI/Math degree from UNC-Charlotte, and has lived and worked all over the United States and Canada. He has run marathons, taught English in Japan, been CTO for a pharma marketing company and done fashion photography in NYC. Seth has two albums he wrote and played keyboards on, and he plays the theramin whenever he gets the chance. Seth spends so much time in coffee shops drawing that he is mentioned in online reviews. He would love a career drawing elves and goblins for a living.
