This is New Town by MeckanicalMind This is New Town by MeckanicalMind
In comparison to 'Old Town'

Started this recently, just finishing it up before a trip out of town. Don't really have time to refine all the details, so this is good for now. Love the future!

A few evenings in CS3 on Intuous 4.

It looks like the scaffolding is still going up...not yet populated, but when it is, it will be full of life. I love it and I hope you do go back to it.

A futuristic Town that is Reminiscent Of Star wars' Coruscant, mixed with a little NYC to me, it's a marvel that a Human made this. I am truly captivated by the colors, and some of the blurring. It's Beautifully Graceful.

RobertCopu Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
LOL, I laughed when I saw "Don't really have time to refine all the details"
Haha, as if this needs refining! Brilliant Job, you truly do have a mechanical mind!
Lord-Inu-Hanyou Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011
Very nice.
FrankVoors Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011
I like the concept you put down here, but as your said, you can see the need to finish. Are the trees actual pictures? Some spots give me the idea you first composit the image and than start connecting them with your drawingskills. This rough concept really shows your eye for light/shadow and how objects behave, well done.

One critique; the bloglink is not working. Have a nice trip! ;)
MeckanicalMind Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Blog link fixed, thanks for the heads up, The trees are actually added on top of the image, since i did not take the time to paint or use a fancy brush to create them. Time is limited for projects outside of work, and my short attention span does not help. There is a certain point in art where you have to put down the brush and say 'It is done because I am no longer going to work on it'. There are images under all this, but instead of an actual scene, its spewed about like a texture collage with now composition, structure, or focus yet. It is a very fast way to get something going. Now that its going I'm done, hah. It is possible that eventually I will go back and continue to work on top of it, maybe in a few weeks or a month when I've had time away from it.
FrankVoors Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011
I can imagine you are keeping a busy commercial schedule at this skilllevel of conceptart. It's good to keep personal projects like these alongside not to be bound to requirements and just go loose on whatever you want to show/tell us.

And putting down the pencil is also a skill. Your work has drawn my eye so I don't qualify your work as not finished, you have illustrated the concept you wanted to show and you succeded. Bravo!

I wish I could see a picture like this while it's being made. I just can't understand how things like this are done, it really messes with my mind.

But yeah, it's really great.
