I was playing around with the greeble modifier in 3dsmax before jumping into photoshop. It's a really nice tool to create random city shape.
Looks great. Greeble is a really useful tool. However you still need to have great painting skills like you clearly demonstrate here. Did you render a Zdepth pass to create the impression of atmospheric perspective because it looks that way?
Thanks! For the 3d I just did a simple render with a skylight.
Ya, greeble is useful, but too many people use the default settings and then declare it done. This painting does a great job of using it properly, as a basis on which to build on top of (either in 3d or 2d paint). Great work Mathieu!
I will have to try out that greeble modifier some time. After I install max of course...
Great image, such detail. The little light dots really help this image! Superb work!
I feel i should do an unofficial review, But well I'm breathless its so realistic.
Good Work .. ..
I really like the tiny hints of red!
This city is amazing! I also love the way that the lighting creates the impression of it being in space/at night, with only the stars for illumination. Really beautiful, keep up the good work!
